Atari VCS Ad #16: Freedom

Posted June 22, 2019 by Ric Pryor

Atari is steadfastly refusing to announce any game titles for the VCS. That, combined with recent focus on the sandbox mode and the console's potential appeal to tinkerers makes me think we're not far from a frustrated social media director posting "Make your own damn games and leave us alone!"

It Looks Like You're Trying to Pull the Wool Over Our Eyes

Never ones to let a good trademark go uninfringed, Atari has "borrowed" and old idea from Microsoft to help new users with the VCS interface.

I think VCS owners will be fine. It's the VCS engineers who need help.
