It has been over 20 years since Atari launched their Jaguar system, the last piece of hardware that company would make; until now perhaps. There was a mysterious announcement and the launch of a website with little more information than a movie featuring rendered wood grain and plastic. You can sign up at ataribox.com to become the first to know, if Nintendo decides to share more information. It will be very interesting to see what components they have picked to run this new console, considering the high specifications of the new Xbawkx they will either need high end silicon or a much lower price to compete. The video is down below and you can pop over to The Inquirer for more speculation if you so desire.
"The iconic company, which has had more lives than Garfield in a blender, is to release the Ataribox, which so far is shrouded in mystery, aside from the classic wood panelling that lovers of the 2300 and 2600 will know only too well."
