The new Atari VCS is an Atari like no other. This redesigned console doesn't just play the classics - it looks towards to the future of gaming.
The VCS is a unique machine since it's a gaming console plus a Linux-based PC that can run Windows and Chrome apps for productivity. The VCS also has built-in 4K streaming, but this new console is about the games. And aside from access to the Atari VSC vault, with classic games optimized for today it also can access unique indie games online.
To play those games, there's a modern-looking controller but also the familiar Atari joystick. The new joystick has the Atari feel with a wireless upgrade and more.
