Atari VCS Pre-order Date is Set

The new retro console from Atari goes up for pre-order next week.

The wait for the Atari VCS console is almost over. Atari announced to start taking pre-orders for the Atari VCS console starting Wednesday, May 30 at 6 am PT / 9 am ET. Members of the email list for Atari VCS updates get a discount and access to reserved inventory in case the launch inventory sells out in the first week.

Update: The Atari VCS starts at $199.

Atari is selling the Atari VCS via an Indigogo crowdfunding campaign. The details about the pricing and release date have not yet been shared by the legendary video game brand. Despite the pre-orders starting next week already, the Atari VCS is supposed to ship not this year, but somewhen in 2019.

What we know so far is that the Atari VCS runs on a custom AMD CPU and will be open. This means that you will be able to run other games than the ones Atari decides to bundle with the Atari VCS. You will be able to play Atari 2600 games as well as PC games on the console's open Linux OS platform.

The communicated price-range of the Atari VCS is between $250 and $300. There is quite the excitement about the very stylish new Atari VCS console. It will be interesting to see if Atari fans put their money where their mouth is on Wednesday on Indigogo.
