After being delayed three times, Intellivision is going to start cutting staff and licensing out their IP in an effort to save the Amico console. A lack of exposure and marketing led to a freeze in investment into the console, even from crowdfunding sources, causing Intellivision to take drastic steps.

I'd rather have cancer. Stuff like intellivision didn't age like 8 or 16 bit titles. I can't imagine there's a market for any of this.

Family had one and my older brother ended up taking it when he moved out.
The games were dog basic back then with little reply value.
Space Spartan with the voice box maybe the best one.

The NES was such a game changer. A ton of those games still hold up today, but very few older generation titles do. You can probably name the ones that do (Pac Man and such) even if you're younger. It's not anyone's fault, the tech just wasn't really there yet. Still, it's why I don't need products like this.
