Plex Arcade Will Let You Stream Classic Atari Games on Your Phone, Web Browser and Apple TV
‘Centipede,’ ‘Missile Command,’ ‘Food Fight’ and more.
Streaming service Plex has now launched a new Arcade category, allowing you to stream classic Atari games to your devices.
The platform — which previously offered live TV, various series and shows, movies, and podcasts — has ventured into the gaming world for the very first time, bringing a whole roster of retro Atari games that you can access through your smartphone, web browser, or even Apple TV. So far, 27 games are included within the subscription, spanning across original arcade releases to titles for both the Atari 2600 and Atari 7800, including Centipede, Missile Command, Food Fight and more. For those with their own game ROMs, you’ll also be able to add those to your Plex Arcade library.
As for pricing, current Plex Pass subscribers can add in the Arcade category for an extra $3 USD a month, while new subscribers will be charged $5 USD. There’s also a seven-day free trial being offered right now, which you can sign up for over on the company’s website.
