The Atari VCS, the new gaming console from Atari, has been launched as an Indiegogo campaign with preorders available today, with a shipping date set for early 2019.
Along with the launch, the company has also revealed the technical specs of the console, which include 32GB of internal storage, 4GB of RAM, and AMD’s Bristol Ridge A1 CPU and Radeon R7 GPU.
That’s certainly not a bad set of specifications, but one has to wonder just how much third party interest there is to go around. Still, even without a ton of original games, this machine is basically a very nicely designed Linux machine, which in an of itself makes it a really tempting product. That being said – it’s a crowdfunding project, so take all the warnings that comes with that into account.
Okay, so I’ve got a 2600 woody (the hardware not ..well okay) .. and a Harmony Cart with 1gb flash. I’ve got nearly 400mb of software on it.
What the heck do they plan to use the rest of the 31.6gb for?
As it supports Steam I view this as a nice steambox! Not that steamboxes are popular but at least it should get a decent library of games available on linux.
