Hmm wonder if Atari are planning on making more money from their first generation games.
there have been a number of SoC Atari 2600 joysticks with their most popular games built into a single joystick put on sale in the past year or two. Nintendo are following suit also.
I wonder if it's simply a blanket notice so that they can "prove" in court they have attempted to defend their patents/copyright. This stinks of the case between Mojang and Bethesda over the upcoming game Scrolls. Where Bethesda HAD to make some form of official protest to protect their trade marke of "the elder scrolls" regardless of them losing in court. The point being, had they not attempted to challenge the word scrolls it would set president for future potential lawsuits. the same could be true of any trademarked games that may appear to have been abandoned by atari.
