Piece by piece, we're starting to learn a little more about Atari's plans for the Atari VCS, formerly known by the much cooler name of the Ataribox.
The company announced through an email newsletter this morning that the console would support 4K, HDR and 60 FPS content. While it wasn't a full list of the console's specifications, ATari added that it would have support for Bluetooth 5.0, dual-band Wi-Fi and USB 3.0 ports, along with onboard and expandable storage.
"The company is partnered with AMD, who provides the VCS custom processor with Radeon Graphics Technology," the email adds.
It also added a few other details: every Atari VCS would ship with a library of "more than 100 classic games" including Asteroids, Missile Command and Breakout. The email also noted that users could "create or port your own games and multimedia content", although it didn't go into specifics.
The official crowdfunding campaign will begin at the end of this month through Indiegogo, with an "early bird" package available for $US199.
