I got this email today:

Ataribox: Coming Soon!

The buzz on Ataribox continues to grow, and we can’t wait to share more news in the weeks ahead.
 
Ataribox will first be made available via a crowdfunding campaign this Fall 2017 with shipments planned to start in Spring 2018.
 
Why Crowdfunding? Amazing brands are driven by amazing communities. Coming back to hardware is an important step for Atari, and something we intend to do carefully, hand-in-hand with the Atari community that loves our brand as much as we do. Crowdfunding is the ultimate community approach to bring great products to life; and for Atari, it allows us to reward our community with exclusive access, special editions, and include them as active participants in the rollout of the Ataribox.

More info! http://www.pcgamer.com/amp/ataribox-will-run-linux-and-amd-custom-processor-will-cost-300/

Definitely more expensive than I thought it would be, and at that price I just don't know who this is for.

That is pricey indeed!  Why would anyone with a PS4 or XboxOne need this?

New look and they are now calling it the Atari VCS. Supposed to be announcing pre-order date next month.

Hmm, I wonder if the change is in response to feedback.

I have to agree.  I do like the look of it.  Let's just hope it performs well.

Not attracted to the charming retro look of the one in the right?  ;)
