'Pong' is Coming Soon to a TV Near You
Atari announced yesterday it's partnering with Scott Sternberg Productions to bring the classic game Pong to television. It will be a game show (of course) called Million Dollar Pong.
Pong came out in 1972 and was one of the industry's first commercially successful games. "Pong is a cultural touchpoint for generations of people," said Scott Sternberg. "It's not often we get the chance to develop a game show concept around such an iconic brand. I can't wait to give people the chance to see, experience and play a brand new Pong."
There's no word yet on when or where the new show will air.
