Dear Lifehacker, I was wondering how much I could get for an Atari 2600 in good condition? It comes with everything needed to get up and running (cables, joysticks, etc.), plus 23 games. I've had a look online, but no two prices are the same. I subsequently have no idea what to ask for!


From the late '70s to the mid '80s, Atari was synonymous with video games, reigning supreme at home and in the arcades. Fast forward to the present day, and the company is a sold-off shadow of its former self.

Despite this, there's a new Atari console in the wings, dubbed 'Ataribox'. No, really. Here are the first pictures along with everything we know (or think we know) about the machine.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.


Of all the things I expected out of E3 2017, Atari announcing a new console was last on the list. Heck, it wasn't even on the list, more scratched in chalk on the tip of my shoe. But it is happening -- CEO Fred Chesnais confirmed with VentureBeat's Dean Takahashi the company's plans to get "back [into] the hardware business".
