"Atari is now letting fans preorder the retro-style VCS console. The Atari VCS includes a design inspired by the Atari 2600 Video Computer System, and two models will be available for preorder today. A “collector’s edition” with a wood-front finish is available for $299, and a black Onyx edition is priced at $199. Both models and classic joysticks or modern controllers are all available exclusively on Indiegogo, and Atari says it plans to ship the consoles in mid-2019.

Atari’s console is designed to look retro, but inside, it has modern hardware. Atari has partnered with AMD to create a custom processor for the VCS, and the console runs a variant of Linux to play both classic Atari games and some PC titles. The VCS will even support 4K resolution, HDR, and 60 fps games. It also includes built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5, a USB 3 port, and expandable storage. You’ll also be able to connect up USB game controllers, mice and keyboards, webcams, microphones, or speakers and headphones.

Atari is shipping the VCS with its Atari Vault, which includes more than 100 classic games. Asteroids, Centipede, Breakout, and Gravitar will all be playable on the VCS, alongside PC games that aren’t too intensive. You can preorder the Atari VCS on Indiegogo."
