Atari VCS Ad #7: Grandpa

Posted May 21, 2018 by Ric Pryor

While crowdfunding pre-ordering for the new Atari VCS will begin next week, consoles won't begin shipping until next spring at the earliest. If you put $200 into a CD at 2.5% interest, one year from now you'll have $205 and no VCS. If you give that $200 to Atari SA on May 30th, one year from now you'll have $0 and no VCS.

Maybe you'll get your VCS in time to enjoy it with your grandkids

Atari VCS Ad #6: Madness

Posted May 17, 2018 by Ric Pryor

Is it madness to pay $200 for the VCS now when it won't ship until next year, if it even ships at all? Yes. Yes it is.

The new Atari VCS comes pre-loaded with those old games your gramma played!

Legends of the Diamond for the NES takes you back to the good old days of baseball. The days when Brooks Robinson was a Gold Glove... catcher? And batters could choke the $#&@ out of the pitcher without getting ejected.

In a little more than two weeks crowdfunding pre-ordering will begin for the new VCS. Will Atari SA have anything more than an empty shell to show on May 30th?
