Atari has announced the opening date for pre-sales of the Atari VCS Console.
The pre-sale is exclusive to Indiegogo and features the time-limited Atari VCS Collector’s Edition that sports the special retro-inspired wood-front, a nod to the original Atari 2600. There will also be the option to pre-order the Atari VCS Onyx, a sleek all black version of the console and will have optional bundles containing the new Classic Joystick and Modern Controller. The console itself features Radeon Graphics Technology from AMD alongside support for 4K resolution, HDR and 60FPS content, onboard and expandable storage options, dual-band WiFi and Bluetooth 5.0, as well as USB 3.0 support. The included Atari Vault of more than 100 classic games from Atari’s retro library will feature alongside a full range of popular modern titles to be announced at a later date.
“We continue moving forward on the Atari VCS project and are excited to see this pre-sale kickoff and to share more updates with our fans as we look toward the first shipments,” notes Michael Arzt, Atari COO of Connected Devices. “We are building outstanding teams and forging alliances that will make this product great and truly worthy of the Atari VCS name. Expert hardware partners are helping make this project possible and we couldn’t be more pleased with their contributions.”
Atari VCS pre-sale will go live on May 30th via Indiegogo, with prices starting at $199 for a limited period of time. Initial Atari VCS shipments are planned for Spring 2019.
