I think we've had this conversation, Bill
I don't think I'm in a minority when it comes to wanting a fully functional Coleco. Closed systems should be in the minority and not all that we get.
We have, but again, you have to consider a $40 retail product targeted to the masses, i.e., hundreds of thousands of "casuals," is a lot different than a product targeted to hundreds or a few thousand of "us." From a business standpoint, there'd be little benefit to create an uber ColecoVision TV game system that retails for, say, $80, that will garner them maybe a few hundred more sales from "us" (the ones who have the real deal), and likely fewer sales overall because suddenly you've outpriced yourself from the nostalgic casual shopper in Toys "R"Us or Bed, Bath, & Beyond.
Overall, I think it would be unfortunate if not only our community didn't support these first real tries at decent Intellivision and ColecoVision TV games, but also did our usual "scream bloody murder" about all the things it doesn't have. Sometimes things are worth supporting for the bigger picture and the long-term payoff. Now, if things didn't get better in a 2015 and beyond version, then a criticism would be more understandable, but you have to keep in mind this is a big step for a company like this to venture beyond the Atari and Sega "comfort" zones, aka, proven sales. Again, think big picture and I think you can appreciate this more, no matter how high your expectations.
