Atari VCS Console Sells OUt Prompting A Second Run

This may be worth a look as I had a classic console when I was growing up.

 

The Atari VCS™ Collector’s Edition — a first-run limited-time exclusive to the
Indiegogo pre-sale is now sold out! But all is not lost for nostalgic Atari fans
worldwide!

Due to the incredible demand for the retro-inspired model and overwhelming success
of Atari’s VCS Indiegogo Pre-Sale campaign

, Atari has announced a second production run of the wood-faced units, now called
the Atari VCS Tribute Edition, as a tribute to their fans and the enduring appeal of
the Atari 2600-inspired design.

Those who missed out on the Collector’s Edition have another chance to pre-purchase
the Atari VCS Tribute Edition, featuring the same iconic real-wood front panel. The
Atari VCS Tribute Edition is cosmetically similar to the sold out Collector’s
Edition but will not be part of the 6,000 “First-Run” units of the individually
numbered and certified Collector’s Editions.

Launched exclusively for pre-sale on Indiegogo on May 30, 2018, the Atari VCS

is a new gaming and entertainment platform headed to living rooms in 2019. Designed
as a completely modern connected device and not a “retro-box” or emulator, the Atari
VCS features a unique open Linux platform capable of playing popular new releases
and streaming entertainment. As an homage to its roots, the Atari Vault® is included
with every new Atari VCS. A collection of more than 100 all-time classic games,
Atari Vault includes legendary arcade and home favorites like Asteroids®,
Centipede®, Breakout®, Missile Command®, Gravitar® and Yars’ Revenge®. Fans will be
able to access and download additional games and content through a connected Atari
VCS storefront.

The Atari VCS has enjoyed unprecedented support, blasting past Atari’s $100,000 USD
Indiegogo goal in a matter of hours. To-date, the campaign has raised nearly $3
Million USD with 10 days remaining in the current campaign, thanks to the broad
support from gamers eager to enjoy both nostalgic and contemporary entertainment in
Atari’s first connected device.

Last week, Atari also wrapped up a successful E3 2018, showcasing an exciting lineup
of both reimagined Atari classic revivals and completely new original titles. Atari
Connect COO Michael Arzt (Atari VCS / Atari Life) was also on hand at E3 to answer
questions about the Atari VCS, including a detailed interview with Danny Pena of
Gamertag Radio

.

The Atari VCS is now available for pre-sale exclusively through Indiegogo starting
at $219 USD. In addition to the new Tribute Edition, the sleek and stealthy Onyx
Edition is also available, as well as a reimagined “Classic Joystick” and a “Modern
Controller” for new games. Visit the Indiegogo page for more details about Atari
VCS, including specs, purchase options and accessories:
