Announcement   Announcement : Infogrames becomes Atari
   posted by IonMane on 7-May-2003 17:56:11 (1432 reads)
Infogrames has changed its name to Atari. Links to the old website are now directed to www.atari.com

It is unlikey to see a new Atari machine released with the new name however.

It was just you.

Really, I thought about it alot of times, but I was always put off by those huge bulky controllers.

Never really liked the Jag too much myself. Some coin ops used Jag hardware though (Area51, Wargods, Maximum Force, Vicious Circle). It was meant to be a powerful console, but in all the games I saw running on it, none looked much better than those I saw for the SNES.

Infogrames have also owned the Atari name for quite some time anyways, hence their useage of the Atari logo/name on some of their recent releases like UT2003.

I always wanted one too so I just got a new one off ebay for 30 with a game! You can get them from Telegames for 30 too.

My favourite Ataris were the 2600 and the Lynx.

Not a Jaguar, the CD add-on made it look like a toilet!

A 3DO however, always wanted one of those - great concept-franchise style manufacturing and licensing - poor marketing and absolutely slayed by Playstation!
