A new console arrives to join PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S

We’re a few weeks away from the arrival of new consoles from Sony and Microsoft, but those won’t be the only consoles to hit the market this November, which seems to be filled with a lot of new hardware.

The new Xbox Series S and Series X arrive in the hands of users on November 10, and the PlayStation 5 arrives a few days later, on November 19 in the vast majority of markets. But in November another console arrives, and I’m talking about Atari VCS, a new version of the classic console, which despite its launch with the same name, arrives completely reformulated and with over 100 games included.

Atari VCS hits the market in November for $ 389.99

Unlike the original Atari VCS which first hit the market in 1977, this new console comes with a series of new technologies to prepare it for much more demanding gaming. Inside we have an AMD Ryzen processor with an AMD Radeon GPU, 8GB RAM expandable and promises to run games in 4K HDR resolutions.

In addition, the console will also come with a USB 3.0 port, HDMI and Ethernet, as well as WiFi and Bluetooth for wireless connectivity.

Improvements to Atari VCS over the original console also include the addition of an Atari Modern controller, which is a controller very similar to the controller currently used on the Xbox.

Interestingly, this new console differs from a standard gaming console in that it offers a dedicated PC mode. This means that you can install a secondary operating system, for example Windows, on a USB external storage drive, and it is fully bootable, allowing you to use the console as if it were a Home PC.

However, its own operating system is based on Linux and comes pre-installed with dozens of Retro games from Atari, as well as many other current games from other studios. And as with other consoles, it has its own game store, where you can buy games and apps.

The new console is now available for pre-order for $ 389.99 and we don’t know if it will hit the domestic market yet, but you can take a look here.
