    Intellivision

    Platform »

    The Intellivision by Mattel Electronics was a system known for its unique controllers and cutting-edge graphics in the early 1980s, but it was ultimately overshadowed by the technically less powerful, Atari 2600.

    Atari has bought the Intellivision brand and game library (BUT DON'T PANIC, AMICO FANS)

    Good news because we may now see a Digital Eclipse made documentary on the Intellivision, which would be fantastic, or at the least some retro releases or interesting rearmed titles. Recent Atari has done a good job of making its old games available and even doing some new semi-interesting things with them.

    Hilarious because Tommy Tallarico talked a lot of crap about Atari and guaranteed he would defeat them in the "new retro console" wars that never happened.

    BUT NOT TO WORRY! AMICO IS REBRANDING! AMICO WILL PERSEVERE! AMICO IS FOREVER!

    This is actually good news. We might see an Intellivision 50 collection from Atari, and anyone who was a fan of the old console, should be happy considering how well they made Atari 50. At least all that hard work won't be in vain. Funny how all the Amico saga did in the end, was exposed Tommy Tellarico for the fraud that he is.

    Straight up - the first thing I did upon reading this news was rush over to GB.com for the @bigsocrates post, and they did not disappoint.
