The Ataribox Gets an Official Name, Atari VCS
Teased last year at E3 2017 and then again this past fall, Atari just dropped a ton of new info about its forthcoming console—the first in nearly 40 years to be released by the iconic gaming company.
Codenamed Ataribox since last summer, the retro-inspired gaming and entertainment platform will be known as the Atari VCS (Video Computer System). On top of releasing the official name for the product, Atari also announced that it will share prototypes of the Atari VCS, the Classic Joystick, and the Modern Controller with press at the Game Developers Conference this week in San Francisco.
Atari said it has the goal of announcing the exclusive pre-order date for the Atari VCS during the month of April.
