I hope the controller is better than their last one:

ha!

Seems odd that they'd create one now because it'll be hard to get ps4 or xb1 to buy it. I'm wondering what exclusive games they'll have.

If they can do a virtual console for Window 10 via the app store, I might buy some games. As is I know I won't buy a console because PCs are cheap and easy to upgrade.

first article to get the Atari timeline correct.

the first 3 or 4 I read all decided to forget that the Jaguar happened.   

One rumor I saw was that it was going to focus on Atari's retro game catalog
