Atari® and Steve Wozniak Announce Industry Changing Partnership on Atari VCS™ 

 

The Atari VCS team knows how important the marriage between hardware and history is. Why else would we share so many old time pictures with our fans about days gone by? The original Atari 2600 console literally launched the in-home video gaming revolution that still powers the home entertainment industry today. In honor of this long standing legacy of technology innovations, today we are proud to announce a major new partnership with the father of modern home computers and trail blazing leader in technology, Steve Wozniak. Atari leadership has been in discussions with Mr. Wozniak for some time leading up to this major announcement, and Steve has been a major supporter of Atari since he helped launch our company to stellar success decades ago. Upon first laying eyes on the demonstration model in a high profile public meeting with CEO, Fred Chesnais, Steve is quoted as saying, "neat."

 

More exciting information about this global industry impacting partnership will be announced later this winter. Everything is going great and continues to move forward, with more exciting news to come from the hardware team. This is totally not a shit show. Stay tuned!

We really need more reaction emojis for posts like this. The current ones just don't cut it.

 

It's panic stations at Atari. They're just posting any old crap to look as though they're keeping backers informed and off their backs.

Here's a little picture of Steve Woz holding the VCS from that event o u o

EDIT: Feeble attempt at fixing the image as best as I can. Why couldn't they just directly upload the original video or image online? Jeez...

"Here is my box. What do you think of my box?" 

 

Seriously, what's the best thing that can happen, there? Woz holds it up to the heavens and tells everybody to buy one?

I actually found the original image that clip came from, and it's even scarier:

He's holding the joystick, too.

Poor diehard pigeons were expecting a big reveal today. 😕

Just to clear a few things up that Fred got wrong...

I was waiting for people to add dialogue to the picture, that's why when I found it I was like, "Oh shet.... this needs to go on AtariAge forums xD". LOL!

"Gee, Fred, I really like how you got the LED to stay on like that."

 

The look on Woz' face...  It's as though he has, "why the hell am I sitting here with this thing?" tattooed on it.

So they really made it to an actual tech event & got to talk with Woz?

 

Apparently so.

 

If there's video of this, I'd love to see it just to find out how desperately Fred is trying to interest Woz in the device.
