Atari leaves gaping hole in admin site
We've given them 24hrs to sort it, but

It's not that there isn't something to be made out of Atari still. It may be dead and buried but it's still brings a nostalgic tear this reporter's eye and there are plenty of fans still out there.
Sure, the PlayStation is a different world, but some of the old Atari games have terrific gameplay. In fact, we ran a story at the end of 1999 asking whether the P2 had aped Atari. ®
