Forums - Gaming Discussion - Atari VCS cost 400 dollars

So, the guy in the video tried to buy one digital item, was charged twice, and did not receive the product. The perfect companion piece to the console.

Atari hasnt been relevant since 1982. This product seems perfect for 2020 though...



Atari well know for helping Todd Rogers



A bit early to say, but I have the feeling that this could be a contender for best-selling console of all time.



I have periods of social disconnection, it's a part of me that I need and keenly embrace. I'll still log in and read news and threads during those times, but I won't be (very) active on the site, so I apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause (late answers, bumps or the like).

Also...

Please, feel free to correct my English.

This is a scam by Atari to get a quick buck from nostalgia lords who would eat this garbage up. Its sad that one of the bigger selling points they're trying to push with this console is that you could watch Netflix or YouTube on when literally EVERY TV HOUSEHOLD IN 2020 has access to Netflix or YouTube. People have smart TV, consoles, TV Sticks, ECT which could all do the things the Atari VCS could do with YT and Netflix at little to no cost. Why the fuck is Atari so excited about showing this off in 2020 like its 2008.... probably cause they got nothing else to show.

This thing is also a fucking potato in terms of horsepower. Yes power isn't everything to a console, but Atari has the nerve to price the VCS at 400$ and is less capable than a Nintendo Switch, keep in mind the SWITCH is 2 consoles in 1 and MORE powerful than this thing and its 300.
The PS5 is approximately 30 times more powerful than this thing and you could get it for the same price as the VCS.

It's pretty important to stress that this is just a company that has licensed the Atari logo and name: It isn't the original Atari.  Atari was still doing interesting stuff into the early 90s BTW...



Guys do you think VGCHARTZ should add Atari VCS weekly sales once it releases?

Someone already gave a good answer to a similar question on this same thread. =P

I don't think the site is ready to track negative sales.

Well, CyberPunk 2077 doesn't run much worse on the Atari VCS than on PS4 / Xbox One S



It can run Cyberpunk natively =p
