The original console was released in September 1977, while the Tiny Arcade Atari 2600 is a fully-functional miniature replica that fits in the palm of your hand. That’s right, it comes with a working 1.5-inch TV screen, a joystick, and a total of 10 games. Some of the titles include Tempest, Breakout, Pong, Warlords, Missile Command, Asteroids and Pac-Man.
Finally, after numerous delays, the Atari VCS is hitting stores on June 15, 2021, or more specifically Best Buy, GameStop, Micro Center, and the company’s official website. PowerA has developed a Wireless Classic Joystick that is based on the originally 2600 controller as well as an Atari Modern Controller, with both featuring rumble feedback, LED lighting, USB charging, as well as wireless Bluetooth compatibility.
The Atari VCS has been in development for quite some time, and finally, it’s nearing the official release. It’s intended to pay homage to the Atari 2600, and yesterday, the company announced a partnership with the Antstream Arcade retro gaming subscription service. What does this mean? Basically, console owners will have access to the largest collection of Atari games available on-demand, in both original and enhanced edition formats, from the brand’s arcade, home, as well as handheld platforms.
