Atari VCS At E3: Day 3

Posted June 13, 2019 by Ric Pryor

It's the last day of E3 and things are pretty quiet on the VCS front following a whirlwind of activity on days one and two. Overall, though, it was a very successful expo for Atari. First they announced that potential customers can go to a different website to buy a console that still doesn't exist. Then they invited a crew from CNET to their hotel room to shoot video while they played Ms. Pac-Man on a PC running Stella. If that doesn't shut the haters up, what will?

In a press release Atari announced "exclusive distribution partnerships" with Walmart and GameStop with the "official" online presale beginning later this week.

I guess all those presales done through Indiegogo were last summer were "unofficial."

Also, they made it uglier.
