The Atari VCS may look like it was uncovered from a long-abandoned storage unit, featuring a design inspired by the classic Atari 2600 home video-game console, but the technology inside is thoroughly modern. Atari has partnered with AMD to develop a customer processor with Radeon Graphics, able to support classic Atari games and modern PC titles with 4K resolution, HDR and 60fps. Additionally, there are expandable storage options, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.0, as well as USB 3.0. You can pre-order yours now exclusively at, and you'll have two models to choose from: a collector's edition, featuring a wood-front finish, is priced at $299 and includes a classic joystick and modern controller, while a black onyx edition variant is priced at $199. Delivery won't take place until mid-2019.
