Over the years and especially around the holidays, we’ve seen our share of ‘multi-game’ rom (retro game roms) video game console devices. You know the ones, they plug into your TV and give you like umpteen hundred or so of the older 1980′s style video games. Either from arcade ROMs to SNES, or in this case Atari titles.

Well it looks like Atari was sick of not having their legacy being praised for long enough, as they have licensed both their top Atari 2600 titles together with a packaged console that looks like a ‘mini’ Atari 2600. Even though this item is only available in the UK, this will probably not hinder fans and video game enthusiasts, collectors of such nostalgic video game history.  If I had one of these, I’d put it right next to my fully functional and original Wooden cased “Big Sixer” Atari 2600.   Here is the full press release.

AtGames to Launch the Atari Flashback 3 Retro Gaming Console with60 built-in games recreating the original Atari 2600 retro gaming experience!

AtGames announces the release of the Atari Flashback 3 console including 60 built-in games in Europe and Australia working with distributor Blaze Europe Ltd!

 - AtGames Digital Media Ltd. is launching the Atari-licensed Atari Flashback® 3 console in Europe and Australia.

With titles such as Asteroids, Missile Command, Centipede, Yars’ Revenge and 56 others, there are hours and hours of the purest video gaming entertainment for the whole family. 

For anyone who had an Atari 2600 back in the 1980’s, the Flashback 3 really is a “flashback” to an era when video gaming first had mass appeal.  But if you haven’t had the experience of the original Atari, then the Flashback 3 takes you right back to the heart of the eighties. 

With styling based on the original Atari 2600, the Flashback 3 is complete with two retro joysticks, also based on the original Atari designs.  This retro experience allows you to go back in time so you can experience how it all started, and why retro gamers still say that the Atari games are as playable now as they were then.  The Atari Flashback 3 is an easy to use plug and play device that you use with your TV that provides an affordable piece of video gaming nostalgia suitable for the whole family.

“Atari games are known around the world and we are pleased to partner with AtGames to re-launch our best selling Flashback series of classic games for a whole new generation of consumers worldwide”, says Lee Jacobson, SVP of Licensing at Atari Inc.

“Atari is one of the legendary brands in the world that goes beyond borders and time. We are delighted to be Atari’s partner for bringing the Atari Flashback 3 to the worldwide audience”, says Dr. Ping-Kang Hsiung, CEO of AtGames Digital Media Ltd.

“We are pleased to be working with AtGames to launch the Atari Flashback 3 in Europe and Australia, as it meets much of the nostalgic demand of retro gamers, and is suitable for the whole family”, says Jason Cooper, Chairman of Blaze Europe Ltd.

The Atari Flashback 3 will be available in October 2011 in all good video games stores for the low price of £49.99.
