Is it a modern console, playing new AAA-level (or even AA-level) content?  Is it going to be primarily a classic gaming device?  Something else?

Classic Atari games and whatever indies put on it.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Nobody knows for sure. An Ouya 2 seems the most likely answer though.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Pretty much.



Combination of NES Classic and Nvidia Shield/Ouya, not too complicated. Could be cool if executed properly.

Everything seems to indicate its a Nvidia Shield TV with an atari logo for me so far I don't expect a lot.
Deffenitely not competing with Xbox and Playstation with the lack of a disc drive

It ll be weaker than a (docked) Switch is... but maybe have a few Android games in its stores, along with some old atari games.

Likely it ll be a Tablet chip of some sort.

 

So its a modern console.... on the very weak end, without much 1st party (do atari have any studio's?).

I think its going to fail.

Yes, the one that butchered Rollercoaster Tycoon.



probably something like the nes classic

The company with the name Atari was originally known as Infogrames, a kind of meh developer, they bought out Hasbro Interactive who owned the Atari name and rights to some of the companies IP, their biggest IP is Neverwinter Nights but since the original developers are not involved I wouldn't hold my breath. They also own Cryptic Studios, and Namco owns a slice of them.

 

As for the device I think it's going to be a Ouya type device at worse, or a sort of streaming/steam machine at best. It probally will not catch the world by storm.
