I don’t see Atari rising like any phoenix

Just think about how they've tried to position it. A 4K/60fps machine with HDR, for only $199. That doesn't add up. They've used buzz words to make it sound like some little powerhouse, but that's really not what it is.

They've been super vague about which "current titles" it will actually be able to play, and they've made it sound like it could play AAA games. But if you check the Indiegogo page, it says "Killer Atari Classic Games. Hot New Indie Titles." And that's all this will be, Atari classics and some indies. Maybe some older AAAs like Skyrim or something.

So many people on Twitter think this will be going up against the PS4, Xbox One, and Switch. But that's really doubtful. I think a lot of people will be disappointed when this thing ships.
