AtGames to Launch the Atari Flashback 3 Retro Gaming Console with 60 Built-in Games Recreating the Original Atari 2600 Retro Gaming Experience

Los Angeles, CA, September 08, 2011 --(PR.com)-- AtGames Digital Media Ltd. is launching the Atari-licensed Atari Flashback® 3 console in the U.S. This product recreates for gamers the original video gaming experience of the widely appealing video game console (30 million units sold worldwide) from the 1980’s.

With titles such as Asteroids, Missile Command, Centipede, Yars’ Revenge and 56 others, there are hours and hours of the purest video gaming entertainment for the whole family.

For anyone who had an Atari 2600 back in the 1980’s, the Flashback 3 really is a “flashback” to an era when video gaming first had mass appeal. But if you haven’t had the experience of the original Atari, then the Flashback 3 takes you right back to the heart of the eighties.

With styling based on the original Atari 2600, the Flashback 3 is complete with two retro joysticks, also based on the original Atari designs. This retro experience allows you to go back in time so you can experience how it all started, and why retro gamers still say that the Atari games are as playable now as it was then. The Atari Flashback 3 is an easy to use plug and play device that you use with your TV that provides an affordable piece of video gaming nostalgia suitable for the whole family.

“Atari games are known around the world and we are pleased to partner with AtGames to re-launch our best selling Flashback series of classic games for a whole new generation of consumers worldwide,” says Lee Jacobson, SVP of Licensing at Atari Inc.

“Atari is one of the legendary brands in the world that goes beyond borders and time. We are delighted to be Atari’s partner for bringing the Atari Flashback 3 to the worldwide audience,” says Dr. Ping-Kang Hsiung, CEO of AtGames Digital Media Ltd.

The Atari Flashback 3 will be available in September 2011 for the low price of $39.99. AtGames has designated Digital Media Cartridge as its distributor.
