Atari unveils a new version of the Atari VCS after its first-run limited-time exclusive Collector's Edition sells out.
This new edition is essentially a second production run of the wood-faced units. They're beinc called the Atari VCS Tribute Edition as a tribute to their fans and the enduring appeal of the Atari 2600-inspired design. Atari says its VCS Tribute Edition is cosmetically similar to the sold out Collector’s Edition, but will not be part of the 6,000 “First-Run” units of the individually numbered and certified Collector’s Editions.
The Atari VCS is currently available for pre-sale exclusively through Indiegogo with prices beginning at $219 USD. In addition to the new Tribute Edition, an Onyx Edition is also available, as well as a reimagined “Classic Joystick” and a “Modern Controller” for new games.
