Atari, an arcade game company, just released their first ever portable ‘retro‘ styled handheld console that allows users to play the classic video games wherever they please! It’s not surprising looking at video game consoles timeline throughout history seeing the newer designs being wireless or handheld. Every family will want to have one of these around!

During the press release the brand explains “The Atari ‘Retro’ Handheld packs everything that was great about the Atari 2600 into a compact, portable handheld unit with a 2.4 inch color screen”.

It’s constructed with a wood veneer finish, like the original console had, and 50 classic games already built into it, including games such as Asteroids, Pong, Centipede, Missile Command, Breakout, and Millipede.

Atari’s Retro Handheld is for sale already and is available online for $40. This may end up being one of the top 10 consoles sold since 2013. Not too shabby!
