Collection of Atari games hit Xbox One and PS4

atari flashback classicsTwo collections of ancient Atari classics have made their way onto the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this week. While today’s games boast 60 frames per second, high resolution visuals, back in the 80s, such selling points were irrelevant, and they were great days. How would you like to witness the games that we all grew up with?

“Atari Flashback Classics Volume 1 brings 50 iconic Atari games, complete with multiplayer, global leaderboards, and more. From arcade legends to 2600 classics, this massive library includes some of the most popular Atari titles ever released, including Combat, Centipede, Swordquest, Star Raiders . Intuitive interface design delivers the responsive feel of the originals on modern controllers. All new achievements, leaderboards and social features, combined with an amazing archive of classic artwork make Atari Flashback Classics the ultimate Atari collection!”

Atari Flashback Classics Volume 2 includes another 50 titles, including Asteroids, Haunted House, Adventure, Major Havoc, and more. Both volumes sell for $20 each, but apparently on PC you can get them both for the same amount. While this is the ultimate nostalgia trip, $40 is a bit of a stretch for a company no longer in business. Hang on until they are bundled together, or at least sold for cheaper, but there are a couple in here that I would be interested in trying again, even if only for five minutes each!
