The brand new Atari VCS, which is an upgrade in the hybrid console/PC will come with the Ultra blockchain-enabled gaming platform coming integrated within the system. We all know that Atari is a big name in the gaming world, and its attempt to get into the blockchain space with new functionalities on its forthcoming console are very exciting.
In that manner, the Atari VCS is impressive. What started as a gaming console released in 1977 which brought classics like Space Invaders and Pac Man into many homes is now being rebooted. As the blockchain news show, there is a lot of room for development in this gaming segment.
While the Atari VCS can’t compete with the major consoles of the gaming world, it is still a decent reboot of a console that will have the Ultra blockchain-enabled gaming platform installed as per standard.
In other words, this means that when the user is tired of playing the retro games on the console from the original VCS, they can use the app to download PC games and play them through the Ultra service.
Additionally, gamers will be able to take advantage of the blockchain enabled features such as in-game NFT trading, eSports tournaments, and the recently announced game streaming feature, all while earning tokenized rewards.
When it comes to hardware, the cryptonews show that it would be available for purchase through the Ultra platform, using either UOS or Atari tokens. The Atari VCS experienced several delays mostly because of hardware redesigns, as well as the novel COVID-19 pandemic.
As of recently, Atari told the media that the initial batch of consoles and accessories are currently in transit to the fulfilment warehouse in the United States. The company expects to have everything under one roof and ready for sorting and shipping by the end of October.
What is very interesting is that besides Atari VCS, the company has been making a lot of waves in the blockchain and crypto industry ever since its investment in the space back in 2018. Recently, it also announced a partnership with The Sandbox, aimed at recreating some of the classic games within the open-world metaverse.
