Step into the future of gaming nostalgia with MyArcade’s latest creation unveiled at CES 2024 – the Atari Gamestation Portable. Officially licensed by the iconic Atari, this handheld console deviates from the norm, featuring not just the standard D-pad and ABXY buttons but also three of Atari’s legendary controllers: the Trak-Ball, Paddle, and Keypad.
MyArcade continues to build on the success of its previous Atari releases, introducing a seven-inch “high-resolution” display and a rechargeable battery to the Gamestation Portable. Embracing the nostalgia trend, the handheld incorporates smaller versions of Atari’s classic controllers, providing a convenient alternative to dusting off your vintage Atari 2600. While specific specs remain under wraps, MyArcade promises a minimum of 200+ classic Atari games bundled with the officially licensed console, making it a must-have for gaming enthusiasts.
Scheduled for release in the fourth quarter of the year at $150, the Gamestation Portable may not be the cheapest option, but with its extra controller inputs and larger screen, it offers a premium gaming experience that goes beyond the limitations of its smaller counterparts. Get ready to immerse yourself in a gaming journey that pays homage to the roots of the industry.
