Atari Reviving Centipede, Star Raiders Too?

Earlier this week, Atari revealed an unexpected retro-revival, a new game based on the original Haunted House for the Atari 2600. Atari's plans for breathing new life into old brands may not stop there.

Siliconera spotted two more Atari throwbacks, Centipede and Star Raiders, listed as future releases on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The former game, a frantic shoot 'em up against a series of centipedes and other bugs, is probably better known than the latter, but Star Raiders was a late '70s/early '80s predecessor to Wing Commander and Elite.

Both Centipede and Star Raiders have been re-released in their Atari 2600 form on Microsoft's Game Room for Xbox Live Arcade and Games for Windows. Looks like Atari won't be stopping there.
