Atari recently updated their Greatest Hits app with some interesting new features. It appears that the gaming giant has collaborated with Discovery Bay Games to create an official joystick called the “Atari® Arcade – Duo™ Powered” joystick.
The link that is included with the app update takes you to Discovery Bay Games’ website with an ad for the joystick and a description of what is to come.
Simply connect to Atari Arcade, download Atari’s Greatest Hits app for Duo, and you are ready to share the fun with family and friends anywhere! Technabob speculates that this new toy will offer landscape and portrait mode, something that its competitor, the iCade does not offer.
Currently, there is no information as to the price of the Atari Arcade Duo, but it is speculated to be relatively inexpensive. According to Technabob, “There’s no way it could be as expensive as the iCade.” Atari’s Greatest Hits is a free download that includes Missile Command. There are also a wide variety of in-app purchases that allow you to download as many as 100 games in all, ranging from classic arcade games to Atari 2600 console favorites.
