Pre-Orders Open For Atari VCS

Pre-orders have begun at Indigogo for two Atari VCS models. The VCS is a gaming platform that comes with over 100 arcade and home classic Atari titles like Missile Command and Yars' Revenge. The unit is also Linux based, so users can add their own titles and customize it as they see fit.

The Day One Collector's Edition ($299) is an Indigogo exclusive and is only available for a limited time, while the the Onyx edition ($199) is not exclusive but still limited. The former has a real-wood front, and the latter a illuminated red Atari logo.

The system is expected to ship out in mid-2019.
