Video games are reaching new highs thanks to virtual reality and augmented reality, but the Atari Flashback 7 recreates the aesthetic of the classic Atari 2600 to satisfy a growing demand for retro gaming.

The Atari Flashback 7 is packed with 101 classic games that were only available to play on the Atari console several decades ago. The console features an updated aesthetic that features no cartridges to be used and comes packed with two wireless controllers, which brings a must-have modern feature to the retro gaming experience.

The Atari Flashback 7 connects to TV sets via standard RGB connector cables because the games don't require HD resolution to be enjoyed. The console identifies a cyclical pattern in the gaming industry that is seeing some gamers prefer to look to the past for gaming rather than into the future.
