Atari Plans Comeback with New Console, Cryptocurrencies, and Blockchain Gaming

Atari, the iconic game developer behind classics like Tetris, Pong, and Pac-Man, is making a bold comeback with a new console, multiple cryptocurrencies, and blockchain gaming. After years of relative quiet, Atari is now diving headfirst into the world of blockchain technology and digital currencies.

In October, Atari launched its Atari token (ATRI) through Bitcoin.com, raising $1.5 million in a token pre-sale. The coin, built on the Ethereum blockchain, will serve as in-game currency in Atari games, including the online multiplayer game Karma the Game of Destiny. Additionally, Atari is planning to introduce a Pong token and launch NFT blockchain collectibles featuring art from its games.

At the heart of Atari’s blockchain push is the new Atari VCS console, a hybrid console and PC with blockchain connectivity for online gaming and cryptocurrency spending. Despite delays caused by the pandemic, the console is now shipping to early backers of its IndieGoGo campaign, with mass production expected by January.

Atari CEO Fred Chesnais expressed his excitement about the potential of blockchain gaming, stating, “Our goal is first and foremost to be on the blockchain, to offer as many games and interactive experiences as we can… This is a space that I don’t want to ignore, because I believe this is a space that has tremendous potential.”

However, the road to mainstream adoption of blockchain gaming may not be smooth. Chesnais acknowledged the learning curve associated with blockchain technology and the limitations it currently faces. Despite these challenges, he remains optimistic about the future of blockchain gaming and the Atari brand’s role in shaping it.

As Atari continues to innovate and explore the possibilities of blockchain technology, the gaming industry is watching closely to see how this iconic brand will revolutionize the way we play and interact with games in the digital age. Stay tuned for more updates on Atari’s exciting comeback in the world of gaming and blockchain technology.
