The all-new Atari VCS Store promises a unique new experience. Atari is joining forces with a leading industry partner to be announced shortly, with the shared mission to provide exciting and diverse games and other entertainment content for the Atari VCS.

Browse countless new and classic games from both Atari and a host of partner studios and publishers. While we can’t list all the great partners we will have just yet, gamers will be thrilled on day one. 

By Spring 2019 when Atari VCS ships, we plan to have new and exclusive games for you to download* or stream, including reimagined classic titles from Atari and other top developers that are ready-to-play, with even more to come! 

(*Subscription required for advanced services and cloud storage.)

Tempest 4000 will be there, along with other all-new, modern Atari games currently in development for VCS!

It all starts with great games and we intend to constantly add new titles with the help of great partners. We also plan to add video, music and other content to the Atari VCS Store. 

WE ARE BUILDING A DISTINCTLY “ATARI” USER EXPERIENCE

When you fire up your Atari VCS, we want it to feel like you have been absorbed by our iconic brand’s legendary design aesthetic. The colorful and striking visuals of the Atari VCS dashboard, menus, and store are directly inspired by the renowned work that came pouring out of Atari’s Art and Industrial Design Department in the 1970’s and 80’s.

AN OPEN AND SECURE PLATFORM FOR ENDLESS POSSIBILITY

Atari loves the passionate and dedicated creators and collectors out there who have kept our classic consoles alive with new and exciting games and we hope the new Atari VCS will inspire even more creativity!

Access the Linux Sandbox, add more storage via cloud or USB, run multiple operating systems at once, load Homebrew games or customize your own unique platform. 

Atari VCS brings a versatile mix of ingredients to get you started:

AMD/Radeon Processor

Low TDP Architecture

Compatible with most PC peripherals

Smart Home Integration

Linux Ubuntu OS Distribution

Customizable UX

Entertainment System Connectivity

INCREDIBLE RETRO-FUTURIST DESIGN

Inspired by the past. Built for the future. Using the original Atari 2600 for inspiration, the new Atari VCS feels like it felt, without looking like it looked -- a completely modern Atari device, designed and built for a new generation.

THE CLASSIC JOYSTICK RETURNS, WITH A TWIST

Atari's iconic joystick is back and better than ever!

Play the classic games the way they were meant to be played.

The Joystick doubles as a basic media remote for navigating the Atari VCS dashboard and menus.
