New Atari console?

Apparently Atari is working on a new console, called the Ataribox, which apparently has a design with wood-like case parts, like the 2600 had. I wonder if it will really be a new console, an Atari 2600/7800 clone or just another Flashback with no cartridge slot?

Can't help feeling this project will be a failure (the wood part sounds dodgy) unless it is based on 8-bit or 16-bit technology. It says it is PC-based

Makes me feel like i wanna cry, a bit like when the Atari Lynx was unsuccessful, despite being technologically superior to the Gameboy and the Game Gear

Sounds like some sort of woodgrain Steam Machine. Which would totally be awesome.

I'm not expecting anything but I am excited to see what they're making. If they can come up with something competitively priced I'm sure it can take off.

Steam machine built and made and designed and then steam designed for emulating retro games madde by atari? I'm no retro games fanatic but that would be pretty cool.
