Atari first unveiled the new Atari VCS console over a year ago, created to “reinvent the way you game”. If you have been waiting for news about this new gaming console you will be happy to know that this week Atari has announced that preorders will be finally open on May 30th, 2018 via a new Indiegogo campaign but you need to hurry on preorders because I am sure they will be selling out like hot cakes, The new console will be available to preorder from $199. The Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign will also include “exclusive Atari goods unavailable anywhere else” as Indiegogo exclusive rewards. Unfortunately though, gamers will need to wait until 2019 to be able to play on the new Atari VCS console.
Atari did not revealed any hardware specifications for the new Atari VCS console but we think it will come with an AMD Radeon graphics supporting 4K HDR content at 60 frames per second, with both on-board and expandable storage options and connectivity provided by both Bluetooth 5.0 and dual band Wi-Fi as well as USB 3.0 connections.
Atari didn’t announce the various pricing tiers that will be added in the Indiegogo campaign but you can expect the $199 price to only be available for a limited number of early bird backers of the Onyx black version.
