Retro Gaming System Atari VCS Pre-Orders Start May 30, But Ships In 2019

The Atari VCS is slated to be available for pre-order beginning May 30th via an IndieGoGo campaign.

While it has the facade of a retro console, the guts of the Atari VCS are more in line with the requirements of modern gaming, boasting a custom processor via Radeon Graphics Technology that offers 4K resolution, HDR and 60FPS content. Additional features include onboard and expandable storage options, dual-band WiFi, plus Bluetooth 5.0 and USB 3.0 support.

Plus, the console comes pre-loaded with Atari Vault, a game collection of over 100 classic Atari titles like Asteroids, Centipede and Missile Command. The VCS will also support “a full range of popular modern titles” which have yet to be announced.

The Atari VCS Collector’s Edition console comes equipped with a special retro-inspired wood-front, while fans will have the option to pre-order the more modern, black Atari VCS Onyx, priced at $200. Additional packages offered through IndieGoGo will include the classic joystick and modern controller. While the campaign opens at the end of the month, shipping is planned for Spring 2019.
