New? LOL

 

They first announced that thing 4 years ago, it went through a Kickstarter then its been nothing but fuck up after fuck up. They showed a prototype at a game show that was an empty box with a PC running in a cupboard actually playing the games. Then they stuck the insides of another console in the box and released pictures to show progress. They announced games for it then the games dev came out and said he knew nothing about it and had signed no deal with them.Then they used footage of games running on other systems and tried to pass it off as the VCS. I'm sure there's other stuff I'm forgetting.

 

Essentially its a SFF PC running a custom version of Linux. Valve already tried that with the Steam box and they couldn't get anyone to buy them.

 

Seriously, anybody who actually buys this thing needs their head examining.

 

And comparing it to the PS5? Can I have some of what they're smoking please.

 

Edit - And a quick look at T3.com shows its nothing more than a site where people buy adverts that are posted under the guise of news articles. Atari likely wrote that advert themselves.

As mentioned by @Master Disaster, the Atari VCS isn't new, and isn't going to compete with any current or next gen consoles. The Atari VCS is old news, but will indeed lunch in November.

 

Make sure to verify your source before posting ;)

 

EDIT ; we have some 2 year old news threads about it if you're interested in reading about it ;
