Atari Offers up Custom Xbox 360 and New iOS Pong Game to Celebrate 40th Anniversary

Pong is 40 years old, and to celebrate the venerable video game, Atari is pulling out all the stops. First, there’s a new Pong game out for iOS called Pong World.

Pong World is intriguing because it began life as an entrant in the Pong Indie Developer Challenge. The game features four different environments and plenty of new features such as power ups, “paddle creatures”, and different game modes. It’s a free download, and you can get it from the App Store now.

A Pong game is...neat. But what is far cooler is a modded Xbox 360 that has an LCD stuck on it and looks like an Atari 2600 console. You can enter to win this nerdtastic gem via the Pong Challenge Facebook page.

All we ask is that if you win it, please invite us over to play it with you.
