The modern-day-day form of Atari is a zombie: a set of submit-glory-days groups which have acquired the belongings and IPs of one of the greats and use them in all styles of slightly questionable techniques.
We have given had Atari casinos, ideas for Atari resorts, dabbling in crypto, the great-looking but wildly overpriced Atari VCS relaunch and most presents of route Atari gave into NFTs. Well, if that wasn’t all mad enough, now the rapper Soulja Boy has taken to social media to claim that he, the high-quality and simplest Soulja Boy now owns Atari. He’s pretty explicit approximately it too: “I very private Atari. The number one rapper to ever very non-public a videogame business enterprise.” Soulja Boy adds that Atari is, reputedly, going to shop for the Soulja Boy console employer for a cool $one hundred forty million.
“I signed gives with Atari,” says Soulja Boy, earlier than exhorting his fans to locate on Twitter.
“We gonna take it to the subsequent degree understand what I’m pronouncing.”
Not that acquiring Atari became Soulja Boy’s only announcement of the day. “I truly sign Tom Hanks’ son, Chet Hanks, he gave a few fireplace songs coming out.”
He gave to appreciate the hustle, I guess.
Now, Atari itself seems to had been blind to this transformation in affairs, and shortly after Soulja Boy’s ‘assertion’
took to its very own Twitter account to make clean that present day-day CEO Wade Rosen remains very a bargain
the CEO (similarly to a terrific shareholder).
This did not stop Soulja Boy, who in addition to posting his commonplace bromides on the Twitter final night
took the time to publish a piece of writing repeating the claim he is the primary rapper to personal a video games organization.
What exactly goes on right proper here is as easy as dust, notwithstanding the fact that if one problem appears
effective, it is that Soulja Boy would now not in reality personal.
I have reached out to Atari to invite about the individual of its offers with Soulja Boy: the enterprise employer
clearly pointed me in the direction of “Atari’s cutting-edge tweet concerning the trouble.”
