New Ataribox price and tech details places its power within the tier of major consoles

A lot to fork out to play Canyon Bomber

As the drip-feed of information continues about Atari's mysterious console, Ataribox, new details gleaned from an Atari newsletter gives us a rough price window for the machine, scheduled for release next year.

According to the email, the Ataribox will retail around the $250-$300 mark, though the statement added this could change "depending on specific editions and memory configurations" which somewhat implies that several models may be available of the new contender, already releasing to a crowded and expensive gaming market.

It has also been revealed that the unit houses an AMD processor, uses Radeon Graphics technology and will run on Linux. The statement continues: "This approach means that as well as being a great gaming device, Ataribox is also a full PC experience for the TV, bringing you streaming, applications, social, browsing, music, and more."

The console will ship with "tons" of pre-loaded Atari classics and "current games", adding that newer titles will be announced for the platform very soon.

The Ataribox is scheduled for release in Spring of 2018.
