Long Awaited Atari VCS is Available for Preorder Now on Indiegogo
Atari officially pulled the rest of the cover off of its Atari VCS “connected home entertainment platform” on Wednesday. The product, which will boast both classic and modern games, streaming media options, and more, is available for preorder through an Indiegogo campaign page.
Through the campaign page, interested Atari adoptees can opt for one of two versions of the new system: the Atari VCS Day One Collector’s Edition, which features a special retro-inspired real wood front, or the Atari VCS Onyx, which comes in a glossy black finish and “Atari Red” illuminated Fuji logo. The former is available for $299 and the latter for $199. The campaign also has the Classic Joystick available as a standalone purchase or in packages starting at $29.
And while the announcement is exciting for Atari fans that have been waiting for quite some time for more info on the VCS, it looks like their patience will continue to be tested. Initial shipments of the Atari VCS are currently planned for mid-2019, the company said in a press release.
