Not sure if any of you are also Colecovision fans...but I just joined the Collectorvision Club.   For $150...you get a membership card, 1 special CIB game & ROM, access to their 70 game ROM vault. I think that is an awesome idea.   We need something like this for INTV!   Rev any plans for a Rev Club?  I'd join asap!

Collectorvision has stated they will start an Intellivision club when the 100 member Coleco one fills up.
They only need to fill 20 more spots and then they will start one for us!

Sounds like a nice idea. Doesn't anyone have a link to that thread?

Um, how many people do you think are going to line up to pay $150 for membership in a Collectorvision club? Thay have, what, 10 Intellivision games? Of course, there is that membership card…

They have stated it will come with a game exclusive to the Intellivision limited to 100.
I believe as well we will have access to their coleco roms.
Is that any better?🙂

You can look up the Collectorvision club on there website though the Intellivision club has not been officially posted yet until that one fills up.

It would have to be a top quality game, but it's also not fair for it to never be available to the public. So I'd hope that there would be a set date announced beforehand for when the rom for the special game would be made available to the public. Even if it was still sold with DRM for a fair price and not free at that point.

A newseletter style mini magazine, stickers, pins, bagdes, etc would also be nice.

Independent of any theoretical club, it would also be cool if some publishers began making bagdes for their games available, that players would have to earn with a hi score or special challenge. With a fair charge to cover the cost of the items and shipping.

That's why it is a club and costs money,because it is exclusive.
It's funny to me that so many so called collectors want games for free.
If anyone wants to go that route,there are an unlimited amount of free games out there.
Just sayin'.

It's not my club and I have zero input,sorry.

Sounds like Collectorvision has found a way to charge $150 for a game.

The conspiracy theory about ClubRevolution can be laid to rest, I have no plans for a membership based service. Thanks

Now back to the regularly scheduled conspiracies about Pandoras game crash!

My understanding is that there's a new CIB game and then access to all their ROMs, I believe for all systems, which might number around 70 IIRC. If that's the case, $150 for all those ROMs and a semi exclusive game doesn't seem too bad. To qualify my point further, I think it makes sense if you collect both CV and Inty, for someone that doesn't collect CV this might not make sense. As for it being limited to the public, I don't see how it is as the first 100 people can sign up. I'm not certain what CV sales numbers for home brews are like but I don't believe it's much more than 100 copies for most games. 🤔

Aw, don't say that ... we would love to pre-pay for the privilege of getting a game from you! You know, if you include a paper-printed card with some logo on it, we'll even pay more!!

C'mon! Think of the collectors! We need to pay for more exclusive stuff so that you can continue making exclusive stuff for us, so that we can pay for it. Do it!
