Can Atari actually force you to change the name of C-Store points or is it something you guys decided to do... because Atari Tokens sounds stupid. I feel like I'm shoving tokens into an arcade machine instead of buying in game stuff.

The name hardly matters seeing as how they function the same way.

Atari owns Cryptic. So, yes. If Atari wants Cryptic to make their website pink it happens.

Atari Tokens are the new name for Cryptic Points. The goal is to move all Cryptic and Atari games to be using this "new" currency ASAP.

You'll be able to use them here, in CO, or in any other Atari game (such as on Facebook) which has micro transactions.

As far as the idea of putting tokens into an arcade game... I think that's the image the marketing guys were trying to evoke. We're an old school company, and we're proud of that heritage.

Thanks,

this is proof that people will complain about everything even if nothing really was worth complaining about

Basically, coupled with the ability to use them in non-Cryptic games, say, to play an arcade game. Or heck, maybe buy a T-shirt eventually.

It's just Atari-wide currency. So far, the exchange rate/prices haven't changed for STO.
