Nu Atari news. Feb 2020 update..

Postby BlasteroidAli » February 5th, 2020, 8:09 pm

Finally they have a working proto.. and the amazing thing is this... it can run Sub hunt from 1977 in all its black and white glory... wow that is some achievement.

https://medium.com/@atarivcs/atari-vcs-manufacturing-update-cdec2835afa7 this like is showing the Atari working. Wow I actually like the look of it. It does scream $100 to me.. maybe even 149... but I think they want $400.. which I do not think they are going to get.

You make a good point. Too many garbage consoles like this on the market and a quality brand might get lost in the noise. Hope it doesn't happen.
