You’ve played janky old Atari 2600 games on your PlayStation before, so the real star of the upcoming Atari 50: The Anniversary Celebration is the Atari Jaguar. The reality is, many of you will never have touched the so-called 64-bit system’s calculator controller, so this should prove a real treat for those of you eager to interact with some of the classics from yesteryear.

True story: this author actually owns an Atari Jaguar. Back in the early 2000s, when your humble host was a mere teen, we went on a shopping trip to a nearby mall. The game store there must have discovered some excess inventory of the failed Atari system, because it was flogging the entire console for about £20. Naturally, we grabbed one, along with a couple of games, including DOOM.

There’ll be no DOOM included with Atari 50: The Anniversary Celebration, of course – you can download a great version from the PS Store – but there will be Tempest 2000, Ruiner Pinball, and Atari Karts, all of which can be seen teased in the trailer embedded above. You’ll also see a few scant seconds of Club Drive and Missile Command 3D.

In addition to over 100 games, spanning multiple Atari systems, this compilation will also include rare interviews and archival footage from ex-executives. Personally, we’re really loving this trend of retro collections coming to PS5 and PS4 – these days you can build up a pretty robust library of classic content just from the PS Store alone. Atari 50: The Anniversary Celebration will launch on 11th November, 2022.
