Oh man! Say goodbye to Friday afternoon productivity! Microsoft has partnered with Atari to bring updated versions of all of Atari’s classic games to the browser. Awesome!

Launched to celebrate Atari’s 40th anniversary, the games are all reimagined and come with the joys of Facebook and Twitter integration, while an SDK will even allow developers to create their own Atari classics for the site.

Included in the collection are those coin-sucking wonders Combat, Lunar Lander, Missile Command, Pong, Super Breakout, Yars’ Revenge, Asteroids and Centipede.

The Microsoft connection means that the games play naturally in IE10, although they still run in browsers like Chrome and Firefox, although with ads.

Price: Free
Web: Atari Arcade
