I am officially starting the ColecoVision Super Game Module (SGM) second run order process. Here is some information about the SGM:
The SGM is a small device that plugs into the ColecoVision expansion port and increases the console RAM memory and sound capabilities. With the SGM you can run especially designed games that offer more complex gameplay than ever before. And of course arcade ports that play just like the real thing.
- Increases ColecoVision RAM memory from 1KB to 32KB
- Doubles the ColecoVision and ADAM sound capabilities
- Adds a power LED to the ColecoVision
- Compatible with both the ColecoVision and ADAM
- Uses a custom plastic case based on classic Coleco design
- Comes with professionally printed box, manual and catalogs. Packaging mimics the classic ColecoVision packaging design circa 1982/83, so it will match your ColecoVision collection nicely.
- Officially licensed Coleco product

- Does the SGM improve my existing ColecoVision games?
No, to take advantage of the SGM you need to use especially created SGM games.
- Does the SGM have its own cartridge slot?
No, SGM games are just like regular CV games and plugs into the CV cartridge slot.
- Do I need to remove the SGM to play regular games?
No, you don't. The SGM is compatible with virtually every ColecoVision game.
- Can I use the SGM with my ADAM?
Yes, you can.
- Why are you taking orders before the SGM is ready to ship? Why is it so expensive?
The SGM project is very expensive. The total cost of the first run crossed the US$20,000 mark. Due to many unforeseen events, I was forced to put money out of my pocket to finished the project and now I am broken, so I need money in advance to pay for a new run. The SGM uses a custom printed board, plastic case and packing, all professionally designed and manufactured and thus very expensive to manufacture in low volumes.
- Wasn't Donkey Kong supposed to be a launch game? Why has it been delayed to 2016?
Unfortunately, due to time and budget constraints I was forced to delay the game to be able to concentrate on the SGM and most of the launch day games.
- So is everything in place to start manufacturing of the SGM?
Yes. Enough boxes and manuals were printed for 500 SGMs. Cases can be easily ordered now that we have the mold. We are still looking for a better supplier of the nameplates but that should be all sorted out in the next couple of months.
