The unit will deliver with the Atari Vault collection of games built in giving gamer's 100+ classic Atari games to play. With the Atari releasing the new Atari VCS wireless joystick and controller, this will give gamer's a new refreshed gaming experience with the collection of classic hits that are known and loved by many.

Atari has also partnered with classic gaming streaming service Antstream to provide an even larger library of classic hits from many of your favorite gaming platforms, as well as additional Atari classics, redesigned to take full advantage of the Atari VCS features.

Another move that Atari has made is its recent acquisition of the Wonder mobile gaming platform and WonderOS, with their intention of ultimately integrating Wonder technology into future editions of the Atari VCS gaming and entertainment platform so that users can one day enjoy their home experience on the go. This is exciting news for Atari VCS customers, as Atari is not only making plans for launch day gaming, or near future releases, but also long term gaming to make the Atari VCS a pioneer in multiple gaming ventures for the platform.
