Those of us in the gaming community over the age of 30 might remember the Atari. Atari was first introduced to in-home gaming in 1977 with the 2600 console. It brought classic games like Pong, Space Invaders, and Frogger into homes for the first time.
Despite popular belief, Atari never really went out of business. Hasbro acquired it in 1998, then Infogrames Entertainment bought out Hasbro in 2001. Later in 2009, Infogrames Entertainment changed its name to Atari.
Now that Atari is back in the picture, the company has unveiled the new Atari VCS console. While the Atari VCS isn’t slated to be released until late 2019, it is available for pre-order right now starting at $250.
If the 101 original games from the Atari Vaults aren’t enough, Atari has teamed up with Antstream to give you even more. In a subscription to the Antstream Arcade app, players will get access to Atari’s full library and thousands of other games from other platforms.
The Antstream Arcade subscription will cost $10 per month after a free 30-day trial. Users can also choose a $96 per year subscription.
