You can now play 100 revamped classic Atari games on Xbox

If you’re missing out on some retro gaming action on your Xbox One, Atari’s new classic bundles will be right up your street and give you the choice of more than 100 different games from the Atari 2600 and arcade.

The 100 games are split across Atari Flashback Classics Volume 1 and Volume 2, with each costing just under $20 (they don’t appear to be available in the UK just yet), but they’ve also been revamped for their 2016 releases. For example, games in each volume now include support for global leaderboards, trophies and achievements, and where applicable online and local multiplayer.

Add in the fact that they’re now in 1080p and you get to play them with your regular Xbox controller instead of a wonky joystick and they’ll be more fun than ever. Probably.

Titles in Volume 1 include Pong, Sprint Master, Star Raiders, Tempest (both 2600 and arcade versions), while games in Volume 2 include Asteroids (2600 and arcade), Breakout, Flag Capture, Missile Command (2600 and arcade), Street Racer and Video Pinball.

Let’s just hope you haven’t been spoiled by modern gaming and can still enjoy the titles from a simpler time. Of course, if you’re under the age of about 30, a lot of this won’t mean very much in all likelihood but that doesn’t mean it isn’t worth checking out your video game history.
