Atari company will soon release a new console. Previously, it was called Ataribox, now – Atari VCS. In many respects it looks like Atari 2600 from the far 70s of last century. Atari confirmed that the kit includes a classic controller, but there will also be a modern gamepad.
About what actually is Atari VCS, it remains to guess the image of the device. Gamers promise to use the console to turn the TV into a “full-fledged PC”, there will be available applications for streaming, surfing the Internet, social networking, and so on. Nothing that should cause a cry of “Ah!”
Work on the Atari prefix will be on a customized AMD processor with graphics, as it is not difficult to guess, from the same manufacturer. On the photo you can see the ports HDMI, USB, Ethernet and a slot for memory cards.
It was expected that the Atari VCS will be available in the spring of 2018, but the timing was shifted to a later time. The price is $ 250-300 depending on the configuration, there will also be special versions of the console.
