For years I've been coming to the AtariAge Forums as a "lurker". Mostly in this section (Intellivision) as it has been my passion and favorite system for almost 40 years.
The people who know me personally or who have met me at conventions over my 30 year video game career know my passion for Intellivision. If you are a lifelong Intellivision fan like myself... please know that the brand is in good hands. The fact that we still have 4 people at the company who have been around Intellivision since 1981 is also an incredible achievement for ANY video game company. And although it may have gone silent for a few years in the early 90's... rest assured that the original passion is still very much alive. I'll look in some parts of the current office and see things like original signs, marketing materials, awards and my favorites... test carts! Bill Fisher recently found one for the original Space Spartans BEFORE him & Steve Roney (co-founder of the new Intellivision Entertainment) started working on it. SO COOL!!!!!!!
I'm hoping I can answer as many questions as I can... so please feel free to ask away. Obviously there will be a LOT I'm unable to discuss (or my marketing & PR folks would KILL ME!)... but I'll try to answer the best I can.
If anyone is interested in the latest interview I did (from a few weeks ago) that gives all of the most recent up-to-date public info... you can check it out HERE:
Thank-you for keeping the Intellivision name/brand ALIVE all these years!!!! One of our big goals in launching the new system is to ensure that folks 30 and under are well aware of what Intellivision meant to the video game industry 40 years ago and how we helped to revolutionize the gaming industry in so many different ways.
I feel it's time for another REVOLUTION!!!!!
Anyone with me?
