It’s been years since Atari originally announced the Atari VCS, its innovative PC/console hybrid, but the two-in-one system finally has a release date. According to a new feature by Game Informer, the Atari VCS will launch on June 15 and be available in two options: the Onyx Base System, which costs $299.99, and the All-In bundle, which comes in two colors (Black Walnut or Oynx) and includes both the Classic Joystick and Modern Controller for $399.99. Leveraging the power of an AMD Ryzen processor (R1606G APU), Atari’s new VCS hybrid console can be used as either a traditional games console or a fully functional PC that can run almost any OS. Its internal storage(M.2 SSD) and memory can also be easily upgraded.

The system features an AMD Ryzen processor and is capable of 4K resolution, HDR, and 60 frames per second. The console includes internal storage options with the ability to expand, dual-band WiFi, Bluetooth 5.0, and USB 3.0 support. You can also install either Windows or Linux as an alternative operating system and turn your VCS into a mini PC.
