Are you ready to relive the golden age of gaming anywhere you go? Say hello to the Atari Gamestation Portable, the latest handheld marvel unveiled at CES that promises to transport you back to the retro gaming era with a modern twist. MyArcade, the retro gaming company, has ingeniously condensed three classic Atari controllers into one compact device, making it a must-have for gaming enthusiasts.
The Atari Gamestation Portable gaming console features a seven-inch high-resolution screen that brings your favorite Atari titles to life. What sets it apart is the incorporation of iconic Atari controllers into a sleek, modern design. On the right side, you’ll find a keypad, while above the D-pad, there’s a paddle controller. Perhaps the most exciting inclusion is the Trak-Ball located on the bottom left, perfect for games like Centipede. MyArcade has emphasized that this console is officially licensed, ensuring a seamless experience with over 200 classic Atari titles.
The Atari Gamestation Portable is designed for convenience and cord-free use, thanks to its rechargeable battery. The hardware also includes two USB-C ports on the back, a kickstand, and LED backlights to illuminate the buttons you’re using. While the release aims to compete with the Switch and Steam Deck, it distinguishes itself by targeting the portable gaming market with a nostalgic twist.
Although an official release date is yet to be announced, the MyArcade Atari Gamestation Portable is expected to hit the shelves later this year at an affordable price of $149.
