Intellivision Game Console Systems for Sale

Intellivision video game console system for sale

The toy company Mattel in 1980 released nationwide their own home video game console called the Intellivision as a direct competition against the popular Atari 2600 system which dominated the home arcade video game market at that time. The original price tag for this system was $299.95, fifty dollars more expensive than the Atari 2600. Intellivision supported superior graphics but with only 19 games in its first year of life, it lacked the vast library that Atari has accumulated over the years. Mattel sold about 175,00 during its first year. However, by 1982 they sold over 2 million units, inspiring them to later release an enhanced version Intellivision 2 which featured a smaller design, music keyboard, cross compatibility with Atari 2600 games, and detachable hand controllers that were redesigned.

Game Console Intellivision 'The Intelligent Television" Commercial from the '80s.

 



Another nostalgic commercial about this classic system. Note: George Plimpton had a recurring role as the presenter comparing Intellivision vs Atari games.

 
The Intellivision can be considered the first 16-bit game console system and also the first to have the ability to download games. The system did not have hardware to save these downloadable games so it would be erased when it was turned off. IntelliVoice module, which used the SPO256 Orator chip, allowed for certain games have real-time voices unlike earlier systems. This video game console was also the first to offer a music synthesizer keyboard as a peripheral.
