More from TPU … The Atari VCS is an upcoming ‘hybrid’ PC/game console releasing later this year, powered by a Ryzen R1606G APU paired with 8 GB DDR4 RAM and running a custom branch of Debian Linux aptly named Atari OS. The new device will face tough competition against the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 this holiday season priced at 279 USD. The device cannot compete in specifications, so Atari will target the niche boutique game market. The Atari store will cap games at 25 USD and initially focus on indie developers and retro games with plans to eventually offer AAA games down the line.
