Jason Groves (UK) from the Intellivision Invasion Group in Facebook posted these pictures of an Intv III released by Ecico Electronics made for the Arabian market.

 

Per the comments it was listed in the UK back in 2013...  what a find for whoever got it!  CMART, maybe a new quest assuming you don't have it?

Wow! Flip it over and check the serial number. What if it has a Tutorvision board in it? ;-)

Quick search on Ecico Electronics:
They made some cartridges and/or tapes for the Mattel Aquarius
They existed from about 1985 to 1993.

This may be the most aesthetically pleasing Intellivision console ever created. What a find!

Too bad the keypads aren't in arabic.
Is it secam or pal?
Do they have the instructions?

No, I just meant I liked your comment.

I should have said including zero!

:D

 

Even if the so called Arabic numbers are originally from India. 

 

But interesting to see a INTV III with 220V/50Hz. Is it even a PAL system?

Does not appear to have a Tutor Pro board inside. The traces are curvy rather than straight/angular and the traces are in the wrong place.

Odds that it was also a Tutor Pro was astronomically small but just existing in Arabic is incredible.

If this is the only known Arabic system, it is currently -more- rare than the Tutorvision systems or the Tutor Pros.

Impressive.

I thought those were cobwebs rather than traces. To me, looking through the vent, the dark area at the bottom is the exec chip rather than the big capacitor and the dark area near the upper vent is the heat sinks on the stic and system ram. Plus, since this thing has to be secam or pal, it's unlikely to be a tutorvision.

what would we do without the zero?

 

nil.

 

it's really an interesting item.

 

but what is so aesthetic?

the arabic labelling?

 

hmm... i know my ex hated me for such (for those who didn't know it i was married to a muslima)

 

BUT TAKE THIS SENTENCE IN LATIN LETTERS AND COVER IT TO 3/4 AND IT'S STILL READABLE.

 

Spoiler

The Arabic transcription for the name INTELLIVISION should appear as

 

إِنْتٚلِّيۋِيژٛـن

 

and transliterated as ʾINTELLĪVĪZHON, with true letters for both the <V> and <ZH> (namely, the vav and zheʾ—a 3-dotted <W> and a 3-dotted <Z>, respectively).

 

The transcription on the actual game console box appears slightly incorrect, by using the letters faʾ and jim instead.

 

Does Ecico Electronics publish any INTV games localized into Arabic and/or Hebrew?!?!  Do they also produce their own ECS and iVoice modules?!?!
