I'm also taking this opportunity to thanks all peoples who support not only CollectorVision but also Opcode, Team Pixelboy, Newcoleco, RKgames, AtariAge Store, GoodDealGames and all other member like phboland , phattybomby who contribute with their wonderfull projects.. Thanks everyone! I appreciate your efforts!

I think Pang is the first game where I would want the CBS box more than the NTSC box. It just looks so cool

You should mention that Elevator Action is a port of the SG-1000 version.

Hi J-F. :)

That's really great news. :-D

But if you buy the Arcade Quality Controller, and also the upcoming Pinball Controller, you'll get exactly 2 similar games. (Roller Ball). :ponder:

Fantastic. 2012 is going to be THE ColecoVision year. In fact I suspect we will get more new games than we got in 1982. :)

I hope we will be able to release more games than Coleco did back in 82

Having the SuperGame Module , Arcade Controller and Pinball Controller will probably also beat Coleco's accessories back in 82 in term of number of different accessories available ...

SWEAT YEAR!!! ..... , Jim ? ;) :P
