from Bill Loguidice (works with AT Games) about the upcoming holiday season AT Games coming out:

 

"All I can say is that there is going to be an impressive third party line-up this year on the Atari and Sega systems. There will be differences though between what's on the consoles and what's on the portables."

 

when asked about the quality of the builds...

 

"I want to tread carefully here, obviously, but basically there will be a budget version with modest/minimal changes and a premium version with significant changes/complete overhaul. They'll have pricing to match their respective builds, although I can't really see anyone here not wanting to spend the extra for the premium model. As for build quality, that's all relative I suppose, particularly at the price points.

 

The above only applies to the consoles. The Portables will be of the modest/minimal changes variety (and only single models), although the included games should prove extremely compelling."

 

commenting about more homebrew games being added this year...........

 

"This does not have to be the case. Inclusion in an official product like a Flashback would arguably give the developer a free pass. However, some homebrew devs have chosen not to work with AtGames - even with non-infringing, original creations - because they're afraid of being "noticed" for their other, infringing creations. Frankly, I consider that a bit of a simplistic viewpoint, because at least of the companies I've had limited dealings with through my AtGames and other relationships, most are either well aware of what's going on or have people who are well aware of what's going and choose to do nothing about it (and in some cases, love it). Of course, if homebrew stuff that infringed wasn't kept low key like it is (selling a few hundred copies at best), I'm sure more would suddenly start to care. It's one thing doing what is essentially fan service and it's another starting to profit in a big way from someone else's property. "

So this just happened.....

 

from Bill L....

 

"I have an update about the Atari Flashback 8 Gold: Activision Edition. Some of you will not be happy. It will "only" have 120 games on it, same as the standard Atari HD model. The difference is is that many of the other third party games will be replaced by 19 more Activision games, so 39 Activision games in total versus the 20 on the regular Atari HD. So obviously that makes the decision a bit tougher. "

 

 

so, now which one are ya'll going after, this Christmas????

Wake me up when they have a version that has either:

  • a cartridge slot
  • an SD card slot
  • every game ever made included

For me, these things peaked at the Flashback 2+ and the portable unit.

We got a dedicated thread I think you will appreciate. So far though not much to say outside of speculation and the current owners of Atari being more just copyright holders that whore out the name. Until we get past RENDERED IMAGES and vague specs we got nothing, here's hoping though.

from Bill L:

"Just checked. It is just Frogger and all the Taito games that are missing from the Activision HD. I'm not at liberty to reveal the additional Activision+Imagic games as of yet. As soon as AtGames releases it publicly, we can discuss further."

from Bill L today:

 

"OK, it's resolved. I was missing one Activision game, and didn't remove the Good Deal Games homebrews. So no Frogger, Taito, and GDG games on the Activision HD. The additional Activision/Imagic games make up the rest of the 130 game count."
