This week is going to be a big one for Atari - perhaps the biggest week in a long time for the company. Atari's new Ataribox goes up for pre-order later this week, marking Atari's return to the console game after decades away. The only question now is whether or not we've heard enough about the console for people to justify actually pre-ordering it.

We're learning a lot more about Atari's mysterious Ataribox console today. Announced back when summer was in full swing, Atari was very hush-hush with details at first.

Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition back in stock (for now)

The Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition was made available and quickly disappeared all in one day earlier this week. Today the console has (once again) been made available through official means, for its original price. That means no 3rd-party flipper pricing for those that hit the button quick enough - if this ever-so-slightly different edition is the Xbox One X they want.

Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition just sold out

This weekend Microsoft revealed the Xbox One X Project Scorpio Edition, and it's just sold out. This device was announced to come with a custom designed casing with "Project Scorpio" printed on its side - and that's about it. It's not like the Minecraft Xbox One S, which has a full printed covering - this is more of a "just for the collectors" sort of deal.

Ataribox images show off a retro-inspired console

Back in June, Atari revealed that it has a new console in the works. Dubbed Ataribox, at first we didn't know if it would be a retro console like the NES Classic or a new console meant to compete with machines like the Xbox One, PS4, and Nintendo Switch. Atari has shared more details today, and as it turns out, the Ataribox aims to be both.

Quit playing Nintendo Switch on your TV

Quit playing Nintendo Switch on your TV

If you have a Nintendo Switch and you've been spending most of your time playing on your TV, I have a message for you: stop it. The Switch's hybrid nature might be a little strange to folks who have never really used handheld gaming devices, but there's no need to fear change in this case. Playing the Switch in portable mode is, in my opinion, the best way to play.

RetroBlox modular gaming console can run old cartridges, CDs

RetroBlox modular gaming console can run old cartridges, CDs

Retro gaming usually calls to mind two thing. Either they’re new games in a retro visual and audio style or, most likely, trying to play old games on modern hardware. The latter usually involves waiting for the generosity of the games’ owners to port the classic to some modern platform or, more often than not, acquiring and playing games through unofficial means. Gaming purists, however, no longer have to resort to such compromises, especially if they still own the original game media. RetroBlox bills itself as the world’s first modular and modern retro game console that can play any and all of those old CDs and cartridges you may have preserved.

Nintendo Switch Pre-orders up again at Walmart

While many stores have - seemingly - sold out of the Nintendo Switch well before its on-sale date, Walmart suggests they've got stock. They wont have the device in stores until the street date, just like every other store that we're aware of so far - but they've got numbers. Walmart's suggestion is that they have enough potential stock that they're able to continue offering the Nintendo Switch on pre-order with guarantee of a unit to every person that comes in and orders.

RetroEngine Sigma wants to cure your NES Classic hang-ups

RetroEngine Sigma wants to cure your NES Classic hang-ups

Nintendo’s NES Classic (Famicom Mini in Japan) is definitely one of the hottest gaming items this half of the year but it suffers from two fatal flaws. It is terribly in short supply and it is woefully limited to 30 old NES titles. Fortunately for gamers (unfortunately for Nintendo), it has inspired not a few takes on the palm-sized mini-console. RetroEngine Sigma might simply look like one of those, but it is going the extra mile. Not only does it not limit you to 30 NES titles, it doesn’t even limit you to NES titles alone, boasting of supporting 28 gaming systems.

As annoying as it is, the flippers are out in force when it comes to the NES Classic game console.
