Atari follows in footsteps of Nintendo's NES Mini and SNES Mini — but with a twist.

For a while we been able to relive the glory on playing Atari games via the licensed retro lineup of Atari Flashback consoles by ATGames, but recently just before E3 2017 last month, Ataribox was teased, but nothing more was known about it, except that CEO of Atari stated it will be using PC technology, but now a series of images have appeared on their Instagram account and in email newsletter, which is causing Atari fans and retro gamers to crash the internet with wild speculation on what this console will be.

When compared to the visuals and level of complexity of modern games, casinos struggle to keep up.

This is precisely why Vegas gambling goliaths are turning to successful gaming concepts for help in reeling in a growing demographic of millennial users.

The fact is that Vegas casinos earn most of their revenue from slot machines, and while the simplicity of slots appeals to older players, it is something that younger players aren’t interested in, resulting massive potential losses for casinos in the future.

The problem is simple, the old-fashioned hit and spin gameplay is boring. At most, slots offer bonus rounds that simulate skill based games, but the game logic is also completely random and involves minimal engagement from players.

Why Slot Games Don’t Appeal to Millennial Users...

The new device will work without being tethered to phone or PC
Company bets gadget will popularize VR as Apple did smartphone


Sony's PlayStation VR headset was originally called by analysts to be the one that would kick-start the VR revoultion and even tho it sold over 1 million units at launch with its low $399 price, it still requires you to own an $299 PlayStation 4 console to use, as such now analysts are hoping that Facebook's new plan to introduce an compact Oculus Rift code-named 'Pacific' that does not need a high-end smartphone, or a high-end PC and priced at only $200 will popularize VR finally into the mainstream world next year in 2018 similar to how Apple did with smartphones with its first launch of the iPhone just over ten years ago.

Video games are good in their original incarnation, but improvements can always be made.
Apart from updating the games with great graphics, remaking also fixes any existing flaws and adds some beneficial content for good measure.

Notable recent video games HD remakes:

1. BIOSHOCK: The collection

The remake of this game is the most awesome way of playing it because you receive 3 games for the cost of one. The games you receive are:
  • Bioshock
  • Bioshock Two
  • Bioshock Infinite
Apart from that, you get DLCs, visual updates, that make older Bioshock run smooth on current systems, and other extras, which are more than enough for the cost.

2. Ratchet and Clank
