The Atari VCS can play Cyberpunk 2077 (sort of)

These two are a match made in heaven.

Remember that new console Atari has been seemingly working on for what feels like forever? Well, it’s been shipped out to the loyal consumers who helped crowdfund it, and it turns out it can play the hottest new releases.

That’s going by a video from YouTuber Kevin Kensonas spotted by GamesRadar – who managed to get Cyberpunk 2077 running on the hardware. The Atari VCS is pretty much just a mini computer and it’s possible to boot into Windows via the console’s PC Mode, meaning that it can play anything that a regular PC can. So they had to try to get Cyberpunk 2077 running on it.

We say play; Kenson’s footage shows that the game runs – how do we say this diplomatically? – like absolute shit, even on the minimum graphics settings. Not that that’s saying much given that Cyberpunk 2077 also runs like a turd rolling downhill on most hardware right now, so much so that Sony pulled the game from its PlayStation Store.

Given that the VCS doesn’t exactly boast the most high-end of specs and isn’t really designed to run something as crazy intense as Cyberpunk 2077, it’s hardly surprising that it only runs the game at a super low framerate.

The Atari VCS – originally known as the Ataribox – was unveiled in 2017 and was set for an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign that would see the hardware come out in spring 2018. As you can tell, the product has run into a few scheduling issues and other assorted drama. The same could also be said of Cyberpunk 2077, so maybe these two are perfect for one another.

The hardware was rebranded to Atari VCS at GDC 2018 ahead of the Indiegogo campaign that eventually went live in May 2018. The project raised $3 million, considerably more than the $100,000 goal it had set out.
