I think you have a valid point there fella, but it begs the question, what would all of us want to see here?, a official machine carrying a cross all the Atari platforms with the posiblity of an App Store to which you could purchase these games yet again, with a posiblle addition of classic Atari coin-op games, like Marble Madness , pit fighter, paper boy that type of thing?

Also I'm tire of seeing the Atari 2600 taking preference on these concepts, what about the 7800, 5200 , jaguar, Lynx and A8 systems getting a look in now? Thinking outside the box..especially the AtariBox has to be more than just another updated Atari flashback number, I've being thinking here what possibilities could they captivate here?

Well, this may not be retro at all from what I've been reading.  Seems like this will be a modern system; however, it would be cool if it had the ability to play games for the various Atari systems.  I think that would bring appeal to the system for retro gamer and modern gamers alike. 

Going to the final frontier, gaming...

I hope you are both right. I am intrigued by this new box but very much on side with Greyfox regarding past titles. Just waiting to be blown away, though I doubt it. The Jaguar is a prime example of hype from Atari. Good console, bags of potential, under supported.
