Atari Attacks The Few Remaining Retro Fans It Has Left
« on: August 30, 2011, 07:29:08 PM »

"In an era where most publishers are embracing their communities, Atari lawyers are inexplicably targeting non-commercial retro fan sites for shutdown."

OK it sucks what "Atari" (I consider Atari dead ever since Tramiel shut it down...) does but WTF do these insane writers mean with " The Few Remaining Retro Fans It Has Left"???

That header is AT LEAST as terrible as what "Atari" is doing !!!!!!!!  :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:

The REASON why they would do that would be BECAUSE there are still so many retro fans !...and "Atari" sees a way to earn money on platforms like the iPad where simple games work so well....and sell so well...

For the moment they didn't contact us (www.atarimania.com).

What is strange in this story is that they contacted us about 2 months ago for a link exchange for the launch of the ipad games  8) 8) 8)
