    I'm right in saying this is the same VCS that failed to ship last year?
    And that box was just an android spec stb for like Ł200.

    The stench of failure is already wafting through this thread and the thing does't even ship until 2019.

    A little update to this piece of vapourware from a Q&A which is linked below

    Can you give more details or updates on the Atari VCS hardware specs? Any possibility you and the team might be considering and/or able to share news of any upgrades from the currently published hardware?The VCS hardware will be powered by an AMD Bristol Ridge family APU with Radeon R7 graphics and is now going to get 8 gigabytes of unified memory. This is a huge upgrade from what was originally specified and unlike other consoles it’s all available, we won’t reserve 25% of hardware resources for system use.


    So it's morphed into a PC now.
