Games will be curated by Intellivision Entertainment with a in house rating of 7 out of 10. The focus is more on a fun and unique gaming experience than graphics. Games are said to be exclusive to Amico via special use of the controllers that other game systems won't be able to replicate, (touch screen on controllers, etc), AND/OR by adding more content/updated graphics. Every game is said to have multiplayer support as a must. Games will not be rated higher than E10+. No foul language, or gore. The initial plan was to come with 5 to 7 pack in games. It then changed to 5. Now it currently will come with 6 games. Pack in games listed below. Physical games. There will be physical 'media' for games. It will require internet to make physical media work. After scanning and downloading the internet would not be needed. It was stated that physical media should be reusable. There may be online leader boards but not online multiplayer. Games are priced around $2.99-$9.99. Physical games price range is not known yet. Console Cost: Initial price was around $150-$180.
