Atari VCS preorder Date Announced
« on: May 01, 2018, 11:46:49 PM »
In breaking news, the Atari VCS console has some hard dates set that are of interest...

  • May 24th, 2018 - This is the day that Atari will stop accepting new emails in the "Insider" email alerts program. I recommend signing up for this since there will be added specials included in this email in regards to the Atari VCS console.
  • May 30th, 2018 - The pre-orders for the Atari VCS console will start at this date. The pre-order pricing starts at $199 for the Onyx edition of the console, and the limited edition wood grain model will also be available at this time. Also, on this date, the final product specifications will be listed.
  • Spring 2019 - Atari VCS consoles will start shipping. My guess is that the company is expecting large orders.

On other notes, Some of the final features are mentioned in the press releases which are as follows...
  • Radeon Graphics included that support 4K resolution, HDR and 60 FPS.
  • Onboard and expandable storage options - I'm guessing the internal storage may be upgradeable.
  • Dual band Wifi - This does not say specifics, but I believe the ultimate result is this will support 802.11n in 2.4ghz and 5ghz  frequencies.
  • Bluetooth 5.0 - This is a major feature to have since this is also found on new cell phones like the Samsung Galaxy S8, Apple iPhone 8, and Apple iPhone X.

It sounds like it's going to be an interesting piece of hardware. I'm looking forward to seeing the final product specs on it. Open gaming platforms keep getting tried by various people for a reason, I'm hoping Atari makes it successful here. :)

The tediousness of paperwork makes my eyes burn and head hurt. Yet it is a necessary evil we all share. I like swords. Swords are simple. They aren't confusing or evil. Just straight forward implements of death. Have a nice day. ~GW
