AtGames Announces Fall 2017 Lineup of Classic Gaming Hardware
AtGames® Digital Media Ltd., a leading force in interactive entertainment products, has announced their classic gaming hardware lineup for Fall 2017. In partnership with Activision, the Atari Flashback® 8 Gold, Atari Flashback® 8 Classic Game Console, and the Atari Flashback® Portable Game Player were announced in addition to their other latest classic gaming releases: Sega Genesis Flashback, Classic Game Console, and Ultimate Portable Game Player.
Each of these consoles and portable systems include a fantastic amount of built-in games and innovative features. Plus, a lot of them share the same games -- the only variance being the amount of games that can be on the consoles.
The Atari consoles are slated for release everywhere September 2017 but can be pre-ordered at select retailers in July 2017. While the Sega classic consoles don't have a set release month, they are expected to be in stores everywhere in Fall 2017 and are available for pre-order at select retailers Summer 2017.
