Atari Reviving Star Raiders for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC

One of the most ambitious games of the late 1970s is getting new life on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC (via GameSpot).

The Star Raiders brand is being revived by former THQ subsidiary Incinerator Studios, which formerly focused on licensed titles such as Cars. It will include many elements from the original game, including the dogfights and navigation via the galactica chart.

Star Raiders began life on Atari’s 8-bit computers in 1979, and was later ported to various other platforms. It was one of the earliest “space combat simulators,” and helped to inspire Elite, which in turn inspired the seminal Wing Commander: Privateer and other titles.
