Atari VCS hits Indiegogo on 30th May, priced from $199

Atari VCS hits Indiegogo on 30th May, priced from $199

There isn't a lot of information floating around as to what you'll be able to do with the VCS when you get it in your hands. The console itself will be available in two varieties: A collector's edition, which features a wood panel front, and the all-black Atari VCS Onyx, which seems to be the standard design for the console.

However, it remains to be seen how Atari will be bringing all these known hardware and software specifications together.

Atari says the VCS will include a custom AMD processor with Radeon graphics, support for 4K resolution, built-in dual-band Wi-Fi, and expandable storage options.

Today, April 30, 2018 Atari has officially announced that pre-sales for their new Atari VCS will start May 30, 2018.

Retro-inspired, but not a "retro-box", the Atari VCS will be a fully customizable entertainment experience.

Atari VCS preorders will start May 30, exclusively on the Indiegogo platform.

We're also finally getting a hint at the system's capabilities.

CD Projekt Red RPG Confirmed for E3 2018
As you can see in the E3 2018 directory , you can see that CD Projekt Red has an RPG game coming to 2 major consoles and PC. Cyberpunk 2077 has no release date at this stage, but it looks like we'll be getting plenty of info at E3 2018 .

There are still many unanswered questions - technical and performance questions, specifically - but Atari noted that full product specs will be posted on the pre-sale listing.

The updated Classic Joystick and new Modern Controller for the Atari VCS are being developed in partnership with leading video game peripherals maker Power A. Both items will be available in select packages and as standalone purchases. Atari says this is early-bird pricing, which suggests that the price of the VCS is going to go up at some point in the future. This means access to a vast array of games, media and streaming content options.

It was also confirmed that classic titles like Asteroids, Centipede, Breakout, Missile Command, Gravitar and Yars' Revenge will be included with the Atari VCS.

Michael Arzt, Atari COO of Connected Devices reports.

After the IndieGoGo campaign has concluded, Atari expects to begin shipping the VCS in the Spring of 2019. "Expert hardware partners are helping make this project possible and we couldn't be more pleased with their contributions".

Personally, I'm curious about the details yet to be announced, until then.
