Atari just announced a brand new console

The PlayStation 5 has some strong competition when it launches in November.

With the PS5 launch is happening in only a few weeks, with the console hitting shelves in November, 2020.

But, there is a new console launching in November too, and this one is launching with more than 100 games included. It’s called the Atari VCS, it’s a new version of the classic Atari VCS.

Unlike the original Atari VCS though, which was first sold in 1977, the new version will be launching with some very impressive specs to make it 2020-ready. Including an AMD Ryzen CPU, AMD Radeon GPU and 8GB of RAM (which is also expandable). It’s capable to running games in 4K HDR.

It also comes with a USB 3.0, HDMI and Ethernet port for wired connections, and WiFi and Bluetooth for wireless connectivity. Other improvements over the old version of the console include a new Modern Atari Controller, and an Xbox style gamepad. The classic Atari Joystikc is also on offer.

The most interesting part about the new console, and what differentiates it from a standard games console, is the fact that it offers a dedicated PC mode. This means you can install a secondary operating system onto a bootable USB device and use the console as if it were a home computer.
