This is still coming, just because this is something I really want to do, and because I just plain love the system. In fact I have been discussing things with Rev back and forth. Problem is that Castlevania got delayed in the ColecoVision front, and that delayed the Intv version as version, since the whole plan was to have shared development for those games. At this point it is clear this isn't going to happen this year as planned, but I am getting back to finish Castlevania on the CV next year, and that is when I will get back to the IntelliXpander as well. I can't release the damn thing without at least a couple of outstanding games.

So glad to hear this is still in the plan. I'm down for both versions (inty & inty ii) if that's still on the table! Thanks opcode!

A few updates:

1) after being on hold for a while so we could finish some more urgent stuff, the IntelliXpander is finally back on track. Hardware team has the specs set and is designing the first prototype board (hopefully available for 3rd parties soon).
2) a couple of things have changed: now the IntelliXpander uses a proprietary cartridge format. That was a necessity in several levels, but will reflect positively on price. A regular Intv cartridge slot is also offered though, and it should be compatible with all Intellivision stuff. Also, the case is no longer inspired on the IntelliVoice. Mockups courtesy Grazi
3) we are penning the 3rd party publishing terms, but it should allow programmers to concentrate on games. We will provide manufacturing services and an uniform packing (not to mention top quality) template. Also will provide dev kits
4) hopefully will be able to demonstrate our first game before the end of 2017

I know you have a million other things going on but if possible please keep open the possibility of one-offs or custom orders for those of us with an Intv System III or Super Pro System, going with a black case and silver label.  I know there would be an extra cost but I'd be willing to pay a reasonable amount to cover the cost of the special order.  Thanks!

... and Sears? Or would the original brown match that one OK? Probably impractical to manufacture, I know. But some of us might buy one of each that matches each of their systems. It looks like there are four designs in total to match:

Original Intellivision
Intellivision II
Sears Super Video Arcade
INTV III / Super Pro

Geez... I think that is all.

Once we have the mold, producing different colors shouldn't be a problem, although price may vary based on demand.

Brown would match the Sears just as well as the Intellivoice module. 

 

Maybe OpCode could offer additional cases as an option when buying the full IntelliXpander. That should bring the numbers up.

Isn't everyone in the Intellivision forum going to buy every variant anyway?
