As the top poo-bar diligently praying at the altar containing the rotting corpse that once was Atari, we honestly hope you do JP. 👍  They should be upgrading yours for free!

How did these kinds of people find this and back it? The comments are hilarious. 

 

I honestly feel kind of bad that that UI is what has people excited about this "exciting project"

It's like those old game controller magazine ads for Genesis/MD and Super NES.

One thing's for sure...Brandon's random bits of word salad have been some of the most entertaining things I've read. I'm still trying to find the modern Enigma device that deciphers this code.

"well balanced"

"great potential for games"

"versatility that Atari offers"

 

"""custom cooling system"""

"I ESPECIALLY ENVY THE UI THAT GOT PORTALS WITH THE SPEED LOADING"

I actually think the UI looks pretty decent.  For a game console.  Granted, I also think the interface of Windows 10 is garbage, and older versions of Mac OSX was definitely better than what we have now. 

Game systems should have a bit of flash in the UI.  Desktop operating systems should not.  Then again the mix of color / 3d icons with the flat monochromatic icons on Windows 10 just needs to go away.  PICK!  It's like having 3 different icon themes installed on Amiga Workbench.

It's a grid of launcher icons. Just like we had in Xbox Media Center in the early 2000s, or any Roku, AppleTV, AppleTV, AndroidTV, Wii, or DVD or cableTV on demand menu. It's nice that they finally showed something with no strings attached, but am I spoiled rotten for not being impressed that something didn't explode when plugged into AC power?

Ha, is it sad that I would have been fine if it'd shown the typical boot from the 7800?  Hell, I would have been okay if the grid based selection screen would have been all in 8bit retro awesomeness.  Raster color bars and all!

Yeah, not sure what people expected, it's not like this is a VR setup, where you can do something more innovative.  I actually like the simplicity here more than say the PS3/PS4 UI.

Whilst Atari is busy digging up corpses, maybe they can dig up Alan Turing's corpse too?

Maybe so, but it appears to have done something to you hair.  :waving:

Ya CPU started dying it a few years ago. It's all good though, I still find him attractive. Sexually that is.

He's either an AI, or he's the guy that writes all the manuals for my Alibaba purchases.
