Oh, that does look like something special!
Indeed and for modern gamers, apparently they have shown off the box playing “Fortnight” without fault - https://www.bleedingcool.com/2020/01/18/apparently-you-can-play-fortnite-on-the-atari-vcs/?utm_source=most_popular&utm_medium=widget&utm_campaign=most_popular_mobile
For the record, Alien verses Predator on the Atari Jaguar holds a Guinness World Record!

To remove any awkwardness, I have mesothelioma. I don’t seek sympathy, just acceptance. Thanks

I found this interview on YouTube about the new Atari VCS.  Interesting to listen to what is said about the project and what the plans are...

Another delay, though this one is quite plausible and not their fault if true:  Atari VCS console delayed, report blames Coronavirus outbreak.

I’m sure this will struggle big time now anyway.

That's a real shame. I've had items delayed that I ordered, but they are saying it's got to do with their Chinese New Year lmao...i never thought that ordering online interfered is somebody packing it up and handing it over to the carrier? Lol

God knows how long it will take..probably the same length of time this Atari VCS will take to come out? I hope they can get through their issues and release sooner rather than later.

Chinese New Years closes down all business in China. Now with the coronavirus, all the factories are not even at full capacity.  This is affecting the Evercade as well (delayed ~2 months) and it is even affecting Apple.  Apple is losing millions of dollars daily because the factories are no manufacturing the iPhones for the very same reason.  So, it affecting Atari shouldn't come as a surprise.

The price is outrageous as far as I am concerned.
