Atari, the gaming giant, will get into the blockchain space with new functionalities on its upcoming console. The Atari VCS was first released in 1977 to bring classics like Space Invaders and Pac Man into the home.

It has been reported that while it cannot compete with the major consoles of the gaming world, Atari’s rebooted VCS console/PC hybrid will have the Ultra blockchain-enabled gaming platform installed as standard. This means that when the user tires of playing the included retro games from the original VCS, they can use the Ultra app to download PC games to play through the service.

However, gamers will also be able to take advantage of the platform’s blockchain-enabled features, including in-game NFT trading, esports tournaments, and the recently announced game streaming feature, all whilst earning tokenized rewards.

The report said that hardware will also be available to purchase through the Ultra platform by using UOS or Atari tokens.

It has been analyzed that the VCS has experienced several delays due to hardware redesigns and the COVID-19 pandemic.

While stopping short of announcing the actual launch date, Atari said that the initial batch of consoles and accessories are currently in transit to the fulfillment warehouse in the United States.

Likewise, the company expects to have everything under one roof and ready for sorting and shipping by the end of October this year.

Thus, Atari has been making waves in the blockchain and crypto world since first investing in the space back in 2018.
