This is the My Arcade Atari Gamestation Pro, it is the retro gaming console that we were told that is coming soon but with a change of name. The ‘Plus’ in the product name has been dropped in favor of ‘Pro’. So, it’s officially the most professional (retro video game) console on the block, or at least it thinks it is.
In case you’re wondering, this snazzy device is a retro gaming masterpiece, brought to you by My Arcade and the legendary Atari. It’s like they teamed up and said, “Let’s pack every Atari console into one sleek machine!” You’ll find classics like Adventure, Missile Command, Asteroids, Centipede, and more – it’s like a museum of pixelated awesomeness.
Those are not it. The Atari Gamestation Pro doesn’t just come with one, but TWO 2.4GHz wireless joysticks, because one is never enough when you’re in the middle of a joystick frenzy. And if you’ve been missing those paddle games like Breakout or Warlords, fear not – these joystick controllers are paddle pros. They even have three sensitivity settings, because why settle for just one way to paddle when you can have three?
And when it comes to setting it up, it’s easier than teaching your cat to do the moonwalk. Just plug and play, and you’re off to the retro races. The intuitive user interface is so user-friendly, it might offer to do your taxes for you. Plus, you can search for games on the Atari system, as if the console itself is a retro game detective.
The game overview pages are like cheat sheets for your gaming adventures, and in-game save options mean you can pause your epic battles to answer the doorbell or microwave some popcorn. It’s like the console knows you have a life outside of gaming.
So, if you’re in the mood for some nostalgic fun, the My Arcade Atari Gamestation Pro has your back – or your joystick, as the case may be! If you are down, you may pre-order the My Arcade Atari Gamestation Pro from the My Arcade website for US$99.99. Pre-orders are expected to ship by October 31, 2023.
