MEI Microcenter Joystick OS

Recommended Posts

Is the OS on the Atari Branded Arcade Stick the same or compatible with the VCS?

The fact that the OS can be on any device would make a ton of sense if Atari was trying to do an Easter Egg in including its Casino and Atari Token into as many devices as it can.  Kind of like the NUON strategy to get into DVD players but mix it with Gambling and the Atari Focus and the Crypto Currency on that with the Casinos and damn.  I also know that Atari has licensed it name to some PI builds with the Atari Vault.  Do not be surprised on the retail release if the Atari Casino is not totally fleshed out and ready to go on the Atari Storefront.  That is just smart to bring Gambling to the sofa in front of the TV like a trojan horse laid right on top of Classic Gaming ...

Without knowing specifics, it seems pretty plain it can't be: the RPi is an ARM-based device while the VCS is an x86-based device. Completely different processors require completely different OS builds.
