Seriously, I love the style of the new Lego Atari console more than my PS5

It's been 30 years since Atari discontinued the icon Atari 2600, a video games console originally built partly from wood to play Space Invaders. Launched in 1977 the Atari 2600 was one of the world's first home video games consoles, and now it's back… but built from Lego. 

For me, an '80s kid, this new Lego Atari 2600 model catches my eye more than a PS5. For one, it's available to buy, or will be when it releases 1 August as part of Atari's 50th anniversary celebration. This is not the first time Lego has partnered with other brands to create collectible models, just take a look at our guide to the best Lego deals around at the moment for more.
