A while back, Jeff mentioned that he was interested in the console Intellivision would be revealing at the Portland Retro Gaming Expo. Well it's now revealed and it's called the Amico.
It will only play 2D games, which will be sold for prices between $3-8 with a library consisting of Intellivision-exclusive content, which sounds like the library will have new games but will also have the company’s entire retro library. One of the big talking points is that it will contain a special chip to push 2D graphics to their limit that it will supposedly look better than what you currently see on the PS4 and Xbox One.
I have no idea what that last statement could possibly mean. There are two controllers with dials that rest on the console but are removed for use, and up to eight players are able connect their smartphones to it with an app. It looks like the supplied controllers maybe have a touchscreen and buttons on the sides?
What do you think, duders? Can you dig it?
