Classic Gaming is Returning this Fall with New Atari and Sega Genesis Consoles

A new lineup of classic gaming hardware is hitting the market come Fall 2017 and we can thank AtGames for that. 

The Atari Flashback 8 Gold and the Sega Genesis Flashback will include a large selection of built-in Atari 2600 and Sega Genesis 16-bit games and an impressive range of new features, including wireless controllers. Oh, and I can't forget to mention that these consoles are releasing alongside their portable companions: the Atari Flashback Portable Game Player and the Sega Ultimate Portable Game Player.
