Atari Goes For The Nostalgia Market... Again
from the keep-trying dept
Acclaim may have gone out of business, but (what's now called) Atari is still trying to keep on ticking. However, they seem to be focusing on hyping up re-released versions of games from their glory days decades ago, appealing to everyone's nostalgia for those blocky games of yesteryear. They're releasing new versions for modern consoles, and a "miniaturized" version of the old Atari 7800 with 20 games built in. Of course, if this sounds familiar, that's because it is. The entity that is now called Atari has been trying to live off the nostalgia market for years, as that seems to be about all they have.
