Alot has been talked about this new controller, but we keep asking what will make Atari’s new system stand out other than brand recognition? Well so far, Geeksng.com has discovered that the company had previously indicated that its upcoming game console would basically be a Linux-powered PC that could play both retro games (including classic Atari titles) and newer games.

Inspired by the iconic silhouette of the original Atari 2600 Video Computer System, the new Atari VCS has already generated considerable excitement within the gaming community.
