The Flashback collection has been launched and is available right now for Xbox One. The collection contains two volumes with 50 titles each. For older gamers that have lived through the Atari days, the Flashback collection will be a goody bag filled to the brim with nostalgia. Newer generations didn’t experience the Atari first hand and were brought up during the FPS and HD graphics era. However, this is a great opportunity for them to witness some gaming history. It is also an opportunity for old and new generations to get together for what looks like a very fun experience.

The 100 games featured in the collection have been tweaked so that they are compatible with today’s screening technology, as the originals were not designed for huge flat screens like the ones that are so common these days. Other than that, the games are untouched and you will find them exactly the same as you left them all those years ago.

You can either take this trip down memory lane alone or with friends, as the games offer support for local multiplayer gameplay.

This isn’t the first Atari project released by Microsoft as the company has shown support for the old school console over the years on multiple occasions, with classic remakes in HTML5 and Atari:Game Over, a documentary about the console released by the Xbox One creator.

Each volume of the Flashback collection will cost about $20. The two volumes are already available for anyone that wants to get into the action and turn their Xbox into an Atari.
