The dumpster fire of Atari VCS continues to burn and now they are getting caught lying. Their main person, Michael Arzt, cant even answer basic question about their new console and when people report on this seeming like a scam, Atari calls THEM liars.

Hi DreamcastGuy. I have some interesting additional info on the Atari VCS. :) Since I'm running an indie studio and is currently looking for potential platforms to release our upcoming game, I figured that it wouldn't hurt applying to Atari's developer program. I got a bit concerned since I didn't get a confirmation or reply to my application, I reached out once again.... radio silence.... Then they launched the indiegogo campaign, And I thought, "what the heck, let's give it an extra shot", only to get greeted by this message: "Hi, Preliminary information regarding game development can be found on our Indiegogo page. More information will be announced in the coming months. Thanks for being a fan!". I don't know what to say, it's just funny, I mean, by this time they should have a proper project plan with clear dates and deadlines. "coming months" doesn't cut it, and why am I forwarded to their indiegogo-campaign? I'm not a consumer, and the campaign doesn't say anything useful about game development. They should forward me to a developer portal, with console specific APIs, guidelines and hardware specific documentation and signup to dev-kits. Like what Nintendo did with the Switch, or like Micorosft did with the XBOX and their ID-program (heck I even have skype-connections to people at the XBOX ID - team) Being concerned about the product ever coming into fruition is the least we could do during its current state.

I remember hearing Atari was partnering with Dreamcade emulator and was going to licences their design for the shell but at the last minute pulled that and went into production for themselves on this crap box. Like after months of working with a 3rd party someone at Atari got the bright idea to follow Nintendo and release the "classic" version. Can't believe how they just cant get a plan together.
Schuyler Ogden (10 days ago)
I honestly don’t know what to believe about this kind of stuff anymore. I can’t tell if something like this is actually going to be launched or end up in a bargain bin like a couple of its predecessors. Im a huge Sega fan and they and Atari had similar fates, but at least Sega wants to be honest to its fans and customers. I don’t think Ataris console will do much but be another flashback console.

It's not a scam. Marketing assholes are paying youtubers to lie about it to kill the hype. They are basically making a console similar to steam consoles.

Fuck the Atari VCS. It's emulator time!!!!! I would rather get my old cartridges, rip them, than play them on my PC. The hardware nowadays allows use to play retro games at full speed with smooth performance. Hell, even the N64 emulators can run both on phones and regular laptops at full speed. Just make sure you own the original legal physical copies that you bought from retail stores or pawn shops before you obtain the ROMs.

Ok, here is a question. Where did you buy that backpack behind you? And how much it cost?
Hrothgar (18 days ago)
Something *might* get released. If it does, I think it'll be a very basic little box without much power that'll run a 2600 emulator and a handful of indie titles, and not much else. Everyone will be deeply disappointed at how much money they shelled out in the crowdfunding campaign, and it will be a commercial failure aside from those few people who funded it. That, I believe, is a best case scenario. Just as likely is that those people all get shafted out of $300, and will get nothing at all.

Irony...seeing an Atari VCS commercial during this video. lol
George Marques (18 days ago)
I was actually excited about this box once I first heard about it. But when they cancelled right before the release date I got very skeptical. Then this article in The Register really showed that even people in the company doesn't know what it is. They say you have to mockup designs, which is true but you usually know what you'll actually put inside it. Now, really, what is it? It's not a media center. It's obviously not a high-end gaming console, but it's also not really a retro-gaming box. Is it a Steam box for indie titles? At first I thought I could have some use for it but now I'm not even sure what it's supposed to do.

I heard Tony Hawk, Streets of Rage, Road Rash, Super Mario Bros. and Kings Quest are going to debut on the VCS. Also through the grape vine came the tech specs: i9 with 128GB of DDR4 memory, optane storage and 10Gb ethernet with optional WiMax support. All joking aside I don't think they're going to hit the July deadline. JMO

My Bullets Do Nothing (24 days ago)
I'm all for classic gaming like the next guy and my first console was a 2600 back in may be 1983 or 1984 but I still have to question why anyone wants to go back before the NES era, ever. The games were broken, the controllers sucked and felt broken brand new, the sound effects were horrible and they just weren't really fun to play. Again, I grew up with this stuff but never once have I ever thought I would ever want to go back to anything before the original Nintendo because the entire concept before that was piss-poor at its very best. I don't understand why anybody wants to go back before the 8-Bit era because it absolutely sucked and was already unplayable then but is absolutely astronomically unplayable by any of today's standards. Why anyone would waste millions of dollars bringing this crap back is beyond me. Especially considering you could just play all that crap on your phone or tablet or computer or wherever else, try it out, see how horrible it is, uninstall it and forget about it. Why buy a new console to play games that were broken when they were brand new and controlled like shit?

The Register is fake news, it's not a legit news source. But on the other hand Atari is being ran by a bunch of French con men, in my opinion. So who is more hateable in this situation? Probably Atari since they're running such an s-show. They try to get people to buy "shares" of RCT, then they want people to prepay for a console for which they provide almost no specs for and doesn't ship for well over a year (and that's before the enviable delays). But on the other hand you have these bloggers who claim to be journalists who in reality are trolls and gossip mongers. Man, this story is a lose/lose situation.
Gecko o (24 days ago)
I think that atari had a golden oportunity to come back as a console developer, all they had to do is make a hit with a retro console, now that those consoles are on fashion, if they did a mini console capable of playing all their old games plus all the games that they developed for newer systems and maybe some other plus, they could have make a hit, but men, I don't know what they are doing, I think that they will screw this up.
Marshall Kuhn (24 days ago)
The comparisons to Microsoft that keep showing up in these types of videos are just asinine. Surprise, Atari doesn’t run the same way as Microsoft. Also, you take a massive amount of liberty in “quoting” the interview with Arzt. If the VCS fails, it will be because of people like you. Also your analogy to your channel was a terrible choice: you bought all of your gear, you do your own research, every decision here is yours; no shit you have knowledge on the things you yourself made and do with your own hands. Also, talking about being a youtuber like it’s a company, or a real job? Don’t break an arm jerking yourself off pal.

Next generation will be heated because Microsoft is already considering next generation console issues. The crossplay issue is just icing on the cake for Microsoft. Microsoft is thinking carefully about the issues I will now describe because they have pivoted to an inherent backwards compatibility model. PlayStation needs to make some business changes before the next console generation. Hopefully they have learned by now Backwards compatibility is important. PS3 Cell Architecture tried something new and struggled. The first wave of PS3s had Backwards compatibility with PS2. That feature drove up the cost of the PS3. PS4 not having Backwards compatibility with PS3 is understandable. PS5 should be Backwards compatible with PS4 day one. If we all have to reset libraries again then making a transition to another platform will be easier. Making PS5 Backwards compatible will cannibalize PS Now Service so they will have to think about the future of the service while PS5 is still in development. I foresee PS Now and PS plus combined into one subscription service. There is no need to have two subscription services offering PS4/PS5 games. Especially with Backwards compatibility as a PS5 Feature. PS Now will need to allow downloading of PS4 and eventually PS5 games, as well as allow them to be streamed at resolutions that the user can select 2160p 1080p or 720p, to all supported devices, and eventually phones and tablets. It is rumored that PS Now will get PS4 downloads this September. The PlayStation Vita was a great proof of concept of game streaming on portable devices. New phones and tablets will be more powerful than the PS Vita. I believe this is why the PS Vita2 will never exist. Game streaming is the future. 5G is coming. Competition is creating this innovation now, PlayStation can strike first. In my opinion PS3 and earlier generation games could remain as streamed games only unless there was significant demand from the community to develop quality emulators and put the games through a rigorous QA process, doubtful. Game development is becoming more expensive and time consuming. We will want to play our last generation greatest hits, preferably enhanced on the new console with a system wide PS5 boost mode option, while we wait for the next big thing. On the subject of PS5 development let’s talk about the PS4 controller. They have done a lot of things right. The biggest gripe would be the touch pad. It drains the battery life constantly looking for input where none exist and serves no function other than an extra button, usually to pull up menus. Even first party developers don’t use it to its full potential. We appreciate that PlayStation has experimented with putting bells and whistles on the hardware but most developers don’t use them. If you want to add a feature to the PS5 controller consider user focused features instead of developer focused features like adding a basic internal microphone so users can enable voice chat built onto the controller. Just a suggestion. In my opinion the lights and the speaker are fine additions to the PS4 controller. Just like in movies, music, television, and now gaming, the entertainment industry has transitioned from an ownership model to a subscription based or advertising based access model. Downloading a game as well as having the option to stream the game, at the users chosen resolution, if the device supports it, is a viable long term strategy as long as the subscription is valid. They could also offer free access with advertising before loading up the game and before allowing an auto save or between multiplayer matches. I’m Predicting PS5 in late September 2020 for various reasons that I won’t write about here.

I highly highly doubt this Atari will get off the ground. I get the idea and could totally get behind it, but I don't think the world needs a new Atari. I'd much rather see Nintendo get back into making a console. Not trying to hate on what Nintendo is doing, but it seems like they've really went into that niche market that targets little kids rather than a broader age spectrum.
Leonard Stys (25 days ago)
It's obvious that the VCS is not a complete product yet or even a prototype. If it is going to take a year to deliver, that means they are going to need to take months to finish developing it and then when it is finished, you will see a lot of emulated games for it when it is released. They probably were waiting to see how much support it would have before making the final design. Look, they had a goal of $100,000. They raised almost $3M, but it is clear that some people are taking their money back because there was more contributed a few day ago than there is now.

I tend to agree. I see very valid points here. Red flags going up. You don't see the big three companies lash out when someone criticizes there new gaming console. I tend to think people lash out when there trying to hide something. Calling a youtube creator fake news because he had an opinion. Atari is purposefully muddying the waters to confuse people so they don't know what to think. Atari can't even answer basic questions. NASA comparision is so dumb beyond belief. I won't be forking over my hard earned money to this company. People watch and see this will end up in disaster. Atari has been caught in too many lies to just give them the benefit of the doubt.

I appreciate the concern about us dyed-in-the-wool Atari nuts, but I didn't support the unit because it was too vague and the Atari Gameband was such a washout. I love Atari, I have almost 400 individual Atari 2600 carts and several of the Flashback collections and units. And it didn't risk me losing at least $200 for what could be the next Phantom or Oton X. Yes, Atari fans are a fine and noble breed. But right now? Anyone supporting the Atari box is asking to get ripped off.

Atari's legacy has been so destroyed over the past decade it's criminal. These peopel using the name and logo for nostalgia money grabs are scum of the earth and those "fans" supporting Atari are being swindled. As a 40 year old who cut his video game teeth on Atari 2600 and it's library I am disgusted by this, sure the mock up looks great but there is NO substance or intelligence behind this project, Chameleon 2.0 and that's not acceptable. I am working on a KNOCK-OFF project to produce similar looking console cases and people can put whatever they want into it.

The VCS was always scam to me from the beginning because they used 3d graphics to show the console only. No games were shown and they didn't even show the controllers. It only got worse when they showed us a hollow glowing box and still no games, and then software that was already released. They then pretended to show us Tempest 4000 on the VCS but it was clearly not running on the system because it wasn't even plugged in. We were then told the publisher had zero idea a port should even exist. Finally they get caught with their pants down and lie to us. WTF! I hope the VCS kills what's left of Atari and someone who cares rises from the ashes to give them a new start on a strong foot. If Atari really did want to make the VCS, they should have pitched the idea, and told us it was a concept and they wanted to see if enough people would want it to warrant moving forward.
Flint Given (27 days ago)
U act like they don't have the right to say or not disclose what information they want and also maybe they r undecided on certain stuff y would u disclose it if not needed. I also want to say I don't care about this console really and will never buy and haven't bought any atari console ever so I am not a fanboy. I have followed this console from many sources and again there is no proof of it being a scam or being real. Let it play out.

Robert Batina (27 days ago)
You are SOOO mad, for someone who doesn't have a dog in the fight. I think you're still upset that Atari VCS called out a YouTuber by name (not you) and then said something like "and other channels like his" or something. It was at that point that you've clicked into furious outrage mode and haven't let up. Okay... Comparing yourself to the Atari VCS COO by calling yourself the COO of your channel. You are one dude that handles everything with your channel, so of course you're going to be able to answer everything in detail. Atari VCS is not a ONE PERSON OPERATION, so there MAY be a chance that he won't be able to answer everything in as much detail as a dude with a camera and a mic and a YouTube channel. You call it "clearly corrupt" that they decided to delay a launch. It can't just be that they wanted to make sure things were in a little more order than they may have had it at the time. Things are sometimes delayed, and it's not always sinister. Your story about Microsoft has no bearing here. The platform they used was IndieGogo, which you obviously know DOESN'T REQUIRE A PROTOTYPE. And to say that the Atari VCS shell "hypes nobody" is ridiculous hahaha people lost their minds when they saw it, and again, look at the amount of backers. Yeah, nobody is hyped. You talk about the damning audio recordings, yet you don't play any of them? You obviously expect and want the VCS to fail, but you decided to spare us from hearing this horrible interview? Again, with the "delays" being something sinister. Because all other projects on IndieGogo and Kickstarter always meet their deadlines. And regular real world products from real companies as well... every instance of a delay has always meant "dumpster fire" as you like to call it. Heh... you're so angry that you're almost slobbering... One of the key things here that you say. "I DON'T KNOW WHY ANYBODY SUPPORTS IT! and that fact seems to really have you on edge. I haven't seen many of your other videos, but maybe you're always just worked up like this. And then you go on about all of these other things that you consider a better use of people's money than supporting this project. Except the people who have backed this project have obviously decided for themselves where they'd rather stick their money. You want Atari VCS to have "openness of information", among other things. But why does Atari owe you squat? You aren't a backer. You're just some pissed off guy with a YouTube channel. They release whatever information they want, the backers will decide whether to hop on (or not) based on that information. Just because they aren't telling YOU what YOU want to hear, that makes them worthy of calling them all sorts of names, including using the word "scam" - when you yourself have admitted that you have no idea if it will come out, and that it very well could. Mad... so mad... I think it made you happy that "The President of Intellivision" called you (aka Tommy Tallarico) and made you mad that Atari called out one of your friends, and other channels or people like him, and so now you are butthurt and can't see straight and definitely can't act like an unbiased news source. But I laughed when you said this about the Intellivision console... "I wanna make a good game that will make an old lady or a young kid happy" - Intellivision President ..... and you just "kinda TRUST somebody like that!" lol "someone that's willing to talk to YouTubers" ... "and listen to what WE want in their products" hahahah Again, you feel that Atari owes it to you, for some reason, to listen to what YOU want, rather than produce whatever it is that they've got in mind... the thing that has already gotten $3M in backing. But the fact that all it took was a single phone call from someone in the industry to say "We make game. Game for old people. Game for young people." and you suddenly think that HIS company will be the one that will make the console that YOU want. *laugh* You got ZERO, ZILCH, SQUAT when it comes to *details* about the Intellivision console - yet he got your support... but hey, at least he called you, eh? Less information than you do know about the Atari VCS... but how dare they not call you, right? How dare they push back when YouTubers say something, if they feel they've been wronged. You know that IndieGogo doesn't require a prototype, so acting like it's something sketchy because they don't have finalized boards or complete consoles - you're either trolling or clueless. Why *would* they have that stuff, when that's what the campaign is for? And as for what the console will do... they've not made any ridiculous promises, they're showing concepts, and it's not *your* job to protect the world from Atari, based on your *guess* that they are a scam. And when a company doesn't have a final prototype, trying to pin them down with information about exactly what kind of chips it will use, what the clock speeds will be, etc... they know better than to promise something about the details that they don't know if they will deliver. Normal people can be concerned about what the final console will end up being, without being a slobbering, ranting, unhinged mess. You can be concerned and still actually back the project, even... some people don't mind putting a little hope into something, and you're essentially calling every single backer an idiot for pledging money - because only an idiot would pledge money to a dumpster fire / black hole pit / likely scam, right? Heh... alright mate, I hope you've been feeling more relaxed in the time since you made this video. I hate to see anyone getting so worked up over something that's still in the planning stages, still might be a decent product, and still might be good enough to please the people who backed it. You're still butthurt though. ;-)
Robert Batina (27 days ago)
Heh... that was fun. You could be right. It could be crap. There's also a good chance it could be passable or mediocre, and for a lot of people that will be fine. Folks aren't looking to get one of these so they can toss out their XBone or PS4. Negativity is just so toxic, man... and for you to be going all in just based on how you think the project smells... I dunno... alright... carry on... I'll avoid your vids in the future so that I'm not compelled to make a reply like this again and waste everyone's time... I mean, I know you've got a lot of folks on board with you. For the sake of the backers, I hope you're all wrong.

Want an Atari VCS? Build an Ryzen 2200G Based system in itx, install Ubuntu 18.04 install Kodi, Emulation Station and Steam, Stella Emulator and put Atari ROMs on it.

People need to take a look at the history of the current ownership. Since they bought the name in 2014 they announced a line of handhelds, tablets and phones that never happened. A game band where backers are still wondering where the hell their band is. And a campaign to port Roller Coaster Tycoon to the Switch again leaving backers lighter in the wallet with nothing to show for it. Now here we are with the current "project" where they do not have a working prototype nor can they even answer questions about the hardware, have been caught faking promotional photos and even more glaring faking gameplay footage. Anybody who backed this has been played like the sucker they are.

who bought Atari?

I would rather pay $100 for this lit up case, and add my Pi3 myself instead of $300. Also, the rocket analogy? They have a hollow toilet paper tube with lights, no launch pad or even a piece of property to launch from.

Atari did you have a recent influx of new employees from Project Triforce?

I wouldn't be surprised if Atari faked the money they raised because of all the people bashing it. My ouya can probably do the same thing as this system 😂

That NASA comperision doesn't even add up, even NASA would know more about the rocket they send up, at that point. They would have to. When little Timmy is coming to see daddy astronaut being send into space, he want to see daddy be sent into space, not his burning corpse on the landing stripe, because "Hey we got something else, that just got released". I really don't know what they are thinking at Atari. Even if some better components came out, it would be more common to start thinking about a next gen console. They aren't even confident enough to play with the thought of that.

I am waiting for Youtubers reporting on this to get the blame when this "project" dies...cause I can see it happening.

I truly believe you are holding a grudge against Atari. I don't like negativity. Unsubbed

I don't care about Atari anyway, but I"m so glad I didn't give money to this fraudulent company.

You can't make a console without a prototype, which mean most likely the Atari VCS is a scam. They need a prototype to prove themselves worthy. The need to prove they started production of some kind.

I played atari games as a kid, my present console is a X1S i have no motivation to purchase a system that offers ziltch over present 8th gen systems that are approaching the end of their life cycle. Not gonna happen.

VCS will probably be released...maybe... eventually... but it will be a Very Crappy System. Has anything we've seen from them inspired confidence?

DreamcastGuy You are 100% correct. I appreciate you standing up to these con artists. I've seen a lot of consoles fail. None required my money before they were even built. Atari holds a special place in my heart. This hurts.

I don't think this is a scam, they are shady and scummy bastard but not a scammer. I think if they focused on the software it will be a good system, at this point they need some cheap laptop bord and putting it in a plastic box.
