In this Binge Gamer Exclusive, Atari announces their return to the console race, presenting gamers with the first system of the 8th generation--the Atari 15600. Screenshots, system specs, and anticipated launch titles are also mentioned.
Comical, but come on!!! 4/1 cant end fast enough.
wow, that article was so funny and really worth posting as news, honest !
hallarious! but a return to the console market for atari would be cool! Americans would have an even stronger hold in the game industry with the likes of microsoft!
I will stand in line for a week to get my meaty digits on this piece of bada$$. With or without games. I just want it sitting next to my 52" Aquos, right between my 360 and my PS3. Like a referee during a hockey game, holding the sluggers apart. Atari, I heart you. If only the console had a fleshy automated orifice that I could physicalize my affection with. Now THAT'S next gen.
That reminds me of an old EGM that had the intellivision 2000 announcement as an arpils fools joke.
You'll be playing as 1/4th of an orange instead of the regular Pacman.
Yay Atari is returning.Sorry losers.HD gaming is exclusive to the Atari 15600 ^__^
lol....if sega said they were making a new console you'd probably explode =)
Many people would ViceKingz :p
364 days out of the year people say that gamers need to calm down and relax a bit. On the one day where it's acceptable to be calm, everyone wants "serious business".
what's next, you cant be happy at xmas time??
Ok, this April Fools thing is getting out of hand.
Either go big or go home on April Fools Day. We got a new puppy last week and my wife convinced my kids today she had to return him. She had them in tears before she let them off the hook. She's a son of b*tch.
LOL now watch your kids plot there revenge.
jeez april fool news on internet is getting old...if it bends then it's funny but you guys are breaking it :)
ZOMG! this is the greatest thing evah!! *checks calender* oh wait...
Jaquar 360 FTMFW!!!!!!!!!!!
April fools! @2.0 I agree, the last game that they had anything to do with that I enjoyed was Roller Coaster Tycoon 2 for PC.
Ha! Number 1, it should be called the "Funtari." Number 2, the PS3 has faster RAM than this thing's made-up RAM
I stil have my Atari 1024ST. What a system it was *sigh*. The Amiga and Atari ST era was the best ever.
Awesome article. I'm most looking forward to the games. Pacman FTW. I'm buying 2 day 1.
Wow, the graphics on that new Joust game look almost real. Killzone what?
How can they stay in business? They haven't made a profit in years. Nor have they made any good games in years.
that was pretty funny but this one is funnier http://www.dailyseagull.com...
I think that's "Ralphie" playin Atari there lol Watch you don't shoot your eye out kid!
April Fools u morons. dont give this guy hits.
Which is code for "lighten up".
I don't think that anyone would mind an Atari console.
I actually see this coming in the not so distant future.
right along with the ET remake
Sweet, Joust!! I miss my old Atari. =(
