"New games" means this will probably just be an Android box. I really don't see the point. Supposedly there's a good chance this is going to crowdfunding soon.

Or Atari will actually make new games. It's still too early to assume anything. Atari games were still being produced as late as the early 2000s. They didn't die out completely in the 80s.

The industry will not support another modern system, both developers and gamers so we can forget that idea. To get 3rd party support they would have to make a box like the PS4 or One, or more powerful. Nobody in their right mind would pay $350+ for an Atari branded current gen console. It would be a system that serves no purpose.

And for them to consider bringing something out where they support it themselves? The current Atari could not do that. Considering this is likely to be crowdfunded, that goes to show how big they are and how much financial backing they have (i.e. none). They're a bunch of bean counters that are trying to make a penny off of a legacy name. They are not a developer anymore except for the occasional cellular game/port. After the breakup/bankruptcy in 2013 their assets are all over the place.

This is Ouya all over again. However if I can get arcade, Lynx and Jaguar on it (however very unlikely), it'll have a place in my house.

Saw them 30 minutes ago. Look sweet and nostalgic. Let's hope they can deliver.

Good luck. 🍀 We all know how the OUYA went. Hopefully it can at least be as successful as the PSTV, although that isn't saying much.

I don't believe it will run Android. If it does, I'd be shocked.

This is what the pack-in controller will look like.

So far the only thing they said was "classic and modern games"

The Kickstarter should be starting soonish, we’ll probably know more then.

That fire button will be uncomfortable as **** to use and be hard to press accurately since itís almost flush with the top of the controller.

I used a PointMaster with my Atari 2600, it was much better than the standard joystick.

GDC happened, Atari announced the new name is Atari VCS.

Pre-orders are opening in April.

The default game controller design is similar to Xbox. What we originally thought was going to be the default controller is optional. It’s still $250-$300 however.

From what they said at GDC, itís just going to be an expensive indie machine. They mentioned it being "packed" with pre-installed Atari 2600 games, but all new games will be indie games you can get on Steam.

There was, however, some clarification of what the VCS will be. Is it a retro box like the NES mini? No - though it will play classic games.

Nor is it a closed system like a PlayStation or Xbox, thanks to a Linux sandbox mode. It lets you to stream music, browse the internet and check email like you would with a PC, except you can hook it up to your TV. But it will have a console-style frontend and a store, with plans to resurrect its huge roster of classic properties.

It's less expensive than a PC, and it doesn't require you to have your laptop plugged into the TV. It'll control many aspects of the TV, and it'll also let you do things on the TV that - because it'll have voice control, because it'll have a really easy navigation system, things like that - it'll make computing on the television easier.

You'll be able to hook a wireless or USB mouse and keyboard to it, if you want it to - it'll do all that stuff. It's an open platform like any PC. The controllers are Bluetooth, and will work with any PC. This [VCS] controller is essentially a modern Xbox-style controller. Somebody who doesn't have the box could still buy one of these and use it with their Android or their PC.

We've been talking about a price point of $249 to $299 [£173 to £208] - we're always hoping we can do better. I'd rather under promise and over deliver, but right now, we're pretty confident we can hit that price. Configurations and bundles can change things a little bit - what we put on in terms of games that come with it, if we did a deluxe bundle, that would add price. Because [the controller] alone is $39, $49 [£34] right?

We're looking at everything from our history. Will it all be available from day one? No, that would be a monumental undertaking. Even the Xbox versions and PlayStation versions of Flashback [a compilation of classic Atari games], we parse them out in chunks, right? Those Flashbacks, they have some of the arcade stuff, they have some of the console stuff, they mix it up. I would think that's how we approach the classic catalogue. But by the same token, we're very excited about games like Tempest 4000, which is a completely re-imagined take on Tempest.

We're talking with third-party publishers, and giving them the opportunity to... if some of them already have things that already run on Linux. Great - port them over, we'll give you a really favourable deal if you put them in our store. We're having those conversations. We're also saying, are you interested in taking a stab at one of our classic IPs?
