Uhh..dudes? Looks like there is an HD offering from Hyperkin that will potentially be announced during E3.
Some folks were doing some super sleuthing in regards to the teaser trailer released for "Ataribox" and while they didn't find further details in regards to that, they did stumble across the following on the E3 exhibitor details site. This week could get interesting in regards to Atari announcements..for better or worse.

The RetroN 77 plays all your favorite 2600 cartridges in beautiful 1080p HD. It's one happenin' pixel party for the senses. Marvel at the slick wood paneling; the on-board game and difficulty select; and the included premium joystick - perfect for all you one-button warriors. Can. You. Dig. It?
-My thoughts on Hyperkin very. I own the Retron 5 and while it I've had fun with it I admit that the build quality isn't exactly top notch. My SNES first controller port has crapped out (along with the cheap wireless controller the system came with) and I can no longer go left. I now use a sega genesis controller with my system. My friends Retron 5 system has completely bitten the dust after getting close to two years out of it.
Some random questions include: Will this be emulation based? If it is emulation based will there be lag? Will it support paddle, racing, keypad, controllers?
