    The system won't be ready for prime time until 15th of April 2021 sadly. I am still very interested. This does not look like vapourware to me. Lets see who comes out first. Atari VCS or Amico. I look forward to reliving my youth, fighting over which system was better. Intellivision!!! ...

But now they have made a comeback and people outside of the arcade world are contributing ...

    Just wanted to give a quick update. I managed to get my Raspberry Pi to output 240p, so emulated console games look fantastic on a CRT.I'll post all the details later tonight. Right now I am out on a rescue run, picking up a whole whack of Atari paddles.
