We are finally starting to see light at the end of the tunnel when it comes to the Atari least we hope so.

At E3 2019, Atari unveiled a demo of the Atari dashboard to showcase the capabilities of the AMD Ryzen chip powering the console, which supports 4K video resolutions, as well as HDR (High Dynamic Range) and 60FPS content. GameStop is getting the all-black Onyx design, while Walmart is getting a design named Kevlar Gold, with gold details on its front panel.

Atari raised more than $3 million for the project through a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo.

Backers of the original campaign for the console on Indiegogo and Indemand will get their new Ataris in December of this year, according to the press release. The Atari VCS 400 model has 4GB of RAM, and costs $249, while the 8GB 800 version is $279. If you're a die-hard Atari fan who missed out on that first round of pre-orders, we're here to help you sort through all of the options so you can get the best deal on the Atari VCS for you.

Atari, which popularized home video gaming with its legendary cartridge-based Video Computer System, or 2600, is launching a new, retro-styled Atari VCS that the company says will play classic and modern games.

Atari is also selling a VCS bundle for $389.99, which includes a classic joystick and modern controller, though both can be bought separately for $49.99 and $59.99, respectively. "After so many months of work defining and refining the products, and after the strong initial support of thousands of Indiegogo backers, we are excited to finally and officially announce our product launch configurations, first key retail partnerships, and the kickoff of the Atari VCS Official Online Presale that will put the products into the hands of gamers".
