Atari comes back to life with its launch of a brand new gaming console.
With all the hype in 2020 about the new Xbox Series X and Series S as well as the Playstation 5, Atari has also hopped on and released a brand new console that virtually looks like it was made in the 1970s.
Atari will always be known as one of the companies that structured video games and gaming culture as a whole into what they are today. At one point in time, they were the most innovative and successful gaming companies in the world, and the employers of Apple founder, Steve Jobs.
The first gaming platform that Atari made was the iconic Atari Pong that was launched in 1972 with the follow-up, the 1977 Atari VCS, being the most famous one.
The last console Atari ever produced was the Atari Jaguar in 1993, before they cancelled its console development indefinitely. They couldn't keep up with what the Japanese gaming companies, Nintendo and SEGA, were doing at the time.
However, that all changed in 2020, with Atari confirming a brand new console to take on the big players in the industry, Sony and Microsoft.
The new Atari console will be called the VCS once again, and will share similar retro looks to their most famous console. The 2020 VCS will feature 4K 60fps gaming, HDR, Wifi, Bluetooth and network connectivities. The console will have two gaming controllers, one being a modern retake of the original joystick and button design, and one for modern gaming.
