Atari buffs up their Board of Directors with both online entrepreneur Tom Virden and Atari founder Nolan Bushnell today. We’re talking old Atari here, like Atari 2600 and all of that. He has since started over 20 game companies and is in both the Video Game Hall of Fame and the Consumer Electronics Association Hall of Fame.
“I am very excited to be reacquainted with Atari at a time when it is poised to make interesting strides in key growth areas of the games industry,” said Nolan Bushnell. “The company and its iconic brands have always been important to me, and I look forward to further guiding them at the board level.”
On a related note, in case you didn’t hear, Phil Harrison, formerly of Sony, left the Board of Directors, as did David Gardner.
