Maker of one of the first gaming consoles on the video game industry Intellivision is making another console after almost 40 years from the first one.
"State of the Art 21st Century 2D Image Processing and Graphics Capability" "State of the Art" + "21st Century + "2D Image Processing and Graphics Capability" ...... I don't think those words, cobbled together in that order, mean what Intellivision think they mean.
Think the other issue could be that the roumers that the ps5 and maybe next xbox are roumered to be coming out then to. If they are then it's a big no starter for this console imo. I know its a different market in a way but I still don't see them doing much if the big 2 or even 3 bring out new console then
This doesn’t sounds good. It looks like one of those stupid 500 crappy games for 9.99 at Walgreens toys.2D and all games kid friendly exclusive and games are 3-7 dollars(like that’s a good thing)I can just have my kids play my Super Nintendo or 3DS or their tablets or laptops and have a better library . I liked my Intellivison when I was like 6 or 7 . Snafu was a cool game , most games were copies of Atari games but I did play it a lot more than my Atari after awhile though I don’t remember any of the games names besides Snafu. Nintendo came out a few years later and I never played it again after that.
2 years out? Seems too early for an announcement like this.
It's about time!
I like your enthusiasm, gangsta. here's an upvote
Thank you kind sir!
Good luck to them. I hope they can produce great games for their intended audience.
"• All games are family friendly and rated “E for Everyone” or “E10+”. • Every game version on the console is EXCLUSIVE. • Quality over quantity! All games must past a strict quality control seal of approval. • Balanced gameplay and design for Equal Opportunity Gaming™ for all. • All games are downloadable and between US $2.99 - $7.99." This is going to bomb.
Sega and Atari at least had some gems in their day. Intellivision was honestly a novelty even back then.
Is it the 1st of April already?!
They should get rid of the controllers and replace them with simple retro controllers. I don't need a touchscreen, a gyroscope, a microphone and a speaker for some retro game remakes. Also $149-$179 is way to much for this. I like the ability to download additional games through an online store (a feature Nintendo and Sony should've implemented in their mini consoles) however unless the internal team is going to develop all the games I don't see this working out. 3rd party indie devs won't like the fact that the games needs to be exclusive.
I can't see how They can force exclusivity unless they're paying for all the production. Even the big console makers would have a hard time doing that. Parity clauses are about as far as they have gone, and realistically, it would only limit the available games to try and force it....especially if the console doesn't have market presence. I think this is just misleading though. Probably just they use their own os, and store, and likely it'll just be a bunch of mobile ports. But because they're the only console using the is and store, it's now exclusive.
It's possible that they'll make all the games inhouse. It'll be mostly very simple games and remakes of classics. If I wanted to make a Lode Runner remake it'll take me about a day in terms of programming. If someone is good at spritework I assume it'll be a day or 2 of work depending on the complexity of the animations they are going for. Sound should be very quick as well. Overall you can probably make the whole game in a week if you keep it relatively close to the original. If you have more people working on it it'll be faster (maybe 2 days or so).
The intelivision collection theme music on ps2 is awesome
Intellivision is back? Wut
It's not gunna make a dent on the big three, it's basically targeted towards Mormans and that's it.
I think they are targeting gamers that are interested in retro like myself. Not the COD generation, if your stupid enough to think they want or expect to compete with PS5 then you obviously are stupid.
It really would be interesting to see another company come into the market that the big three aim for. To date, it's just these Google consoles, sometimes more restrictive, and it seems that these companies would have noticed that no one wants then. Not that a company couldn't make then reliable, but none are really going to expend that kind of effort, when services using other hardware is less risky.
RE VE LEAD
Another giant flop like the new Atari.
Why does it have what looks like 2 first generation iPods on top of it?
I welcome this
a piece of garbage, no more no less
If they put the right amount of technology into the console it could be a success.... Remember there is a huge fan base of 2D pixel gaming on PC!!!!.... all that graphic power and people still prefer 2D.... Now it's possible that Intellivision when they announce "State of the Art" 2D that could include 2.5D and methods of applying shaders to 2.5D. Technically 2.5D is still 2D fooling the eye into thinking there is depth where there is not... I believe Diablo was 2.5D.... Isometric view is one method........ There are still fans of 2D fighters and 2D side scrolling games.... It's possible it could be a success if it is a new console that improves 2D gaming.... If it is a straight Retro remake of an old system for nostalgic fans and adds nothing new and improved to 2D gaming then if will only survive as a niche console or even fail....... Retro gaming can be fun but is reproducible on current technology Why not just release the games on current consoles and PC instead of risking loss on hardware that few people will purchase????? I guess will have to wait till October of 2020 to find out....
