I remember watching the video and thinking it was weird that they spent sooo much time talking about the design of the console asthetics itself, rather than games and features.

Like I said, if they added an ability to play online multiplayer to the classic Atari games, that would be worth trying.

Otherwise, just get a flashback.

I'm ashamed to admit that I loved the Ouya, and got ALOT of use out of mine, mostly because I figured out, early on, how to use a PS3 controller with it instead of that lousy Ouya controller...

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2018/06/21 ... w_in_full/ interesting article about the VCS and why it is a scam ...

Maybe they will produce something.. based on the stats they have it is going to be out of date before it reaches the shelves..

Where as the 2600, the 7800, and the Jaguar were cutting edge when they came out. The 5200 although marred by its joypads was like the XE at least at the middle of the pack.

The specs on the nu vcs point to it being like a mid range chrome-book with Ubunutu in it.

Also worth bearing in mind that the Ouya was an actual physical property. They said they were going to make it. They did a crowdfunding action. Got 8 million and produced the machine. It was a flop but it had games for it that were available to see before the launch.

Where as there is not even a working proto to show with the Atari. Just a plastic box.

You folks are most likely much more informed than me about this, but after reading this article I would suggest that my fellow VGC’ers think long and hard (that’s what she said) about plopping down cash for this.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z0qyUhb3VXI a cut and run episode about the new atari.

This one is scary because it tells you so much more about the company. SCAM It is speculation but based on past history. That history is all bad.
