Atari recently announced that its new PC/console hybrid gaming system, the Atari VCS, will be available to purchase in-stores beginning on June 15th. All retailers that carry the product will also offer unique launch-day promotions and limited-time incentives.
“The day that many eager Atari fans have been waiting for is almost here,” said Michael Arzt, COO of Atari VCS and Connected Devices. “The Atari VCS has been well-received by our early adopter community, and we are thrilled that more people will have the opportunity to enjoy everything that the platform has to offer today, and as we roll out more and more new content and features in the future. We also deeply appreciate the strong support of our retail launch partners, including GameStop, Best Buy, and Micro Center during this exciting time.”
