Have ya'll seen this yet? Not too informative, but it does get your attention, and it says exactly what consumers needed to know.

I wonder if any of those blue PC were ever produced, other than for the commercial.

My guess is just the old-school cable box.

LOL!  Oh, yeah.  I remember those.  I suddenly thought there was some bizarre mytery Intellivision peripheral I was unaware of.  But it  does seem to have a keyboard on it, doesn't it?

No shots of the Master Component? Sad!

 

Is that a shrinkwrapped bundle of manuals in the PlayCable box in that still?

It shows up for the briefest second at 0:27.  It is kind of sad it didn't show up more but I suspect that either 1) they were worried that the console would look too big with the PlayCable attachment or 2) they just wanted to focus on the game library they were selling.
