Mi piace quell'idea. Sarebbe fico. Potresti avere 2 giochi in alto e 2 in basso. Sarebbero appena abbastanza grandi per adattarsi a tutti loro.

Exactly!

I am going Ted Striker - what could possibly go wrong?

Just to derail this thread even farther, if you like Airplane!, Hot Shots! or the Naked Gun series make sure you check out these sometimes lesser known movies: Kentucky Fried Movie & Top Secret! both free on Amazon Prime

Wanted to let our friends in the UK & Italy know that the Amico Amazon pre-order issue is resolved and as promised we were able to shift around inventory to get them more units!
 
Amazon had SOLD OUT their initial allotment across Europe/UK.

Now we are getting more to Amazon Germany, Spain and France next!

"Take him to Detroit"

Keeping it family friendly I won't mention some of the other parts of the movie. 

 

There are a million things from Top Secret -  I will break out in Skeet Surfing every so often.

 

I also named a Chinchilla after Charlie Sheen's Character in Hot Shots! :)

Here is a good video on the subject of shortages from a Canadian youtuber that has slightly more subscribers than OEB Pete. A smidge. Overall a good video. Good explanation as to what is happening all across the industries. Plus he is helping out "gamers". And a way to help out local businesses to boot.

Remember us little people when you get to that number of subscribers Pete!!!!!


Thanks for posting.  I hadn't seen this video.

The challenges right now are huge... but we're doing our best to work around them.

And it isn't just the CPUs, it is many electronic components: https://blog.matric.com/electronic-component-shortages-update

 

Heck even foam (for like couches and car seats) is in short supply: https://news.yahoo.com/foam-shortage-affecting-furniture-automotive-123500451.html

 

In fact, the furniture industry is facing long delays just generally. I have been waiting on a kitchen side board for 5+ months and it keeps getting pushed out another month every month and I am not the only one: https://www.wearegreenbay.com/from-the-local-5-digital-desk/furniture-stores-seeing-long-delays-on-product-due-to-covid-19/

 


I don't know... sounds fishy to me. 

You sure all those furniture makers aren't all just scammers?

 

🤣

Yes! Brilliant news! Thanks very much, Tommy and all of the Intellivision team 🙂 . I've just placed my pre-order with Amazon UK and I'm now really looking forward to the launch!

Thanks for the heads up Tommy, just pre-ordered (again lol).  Roll on October.  Only thing is I need to stop adding titles to the list of games I'm wanting to buy :)

The Groove Tube is another one in this vein, along with Amazon Women on the Moon.  Not sure if either of those is on a streaming service somewhere, though.

This one is just too good to simply leave a laughing tag.

 

Awsome!

Include the appliance manufacturers in that...it took almost 3 months to get my order delivered which is delaying my kitchen update.

Were just starting on our kitchen redo and our first choice oven is out 20 weeks, and I’m not holding my breath beyond that. 
 

Also heard fridges are backed up as a friends’s fridge went out and he's basically SOL on getting a replacement anytime soon. 
 

Dang appliance manufactures are apparently in on the whole scam as well. Tommy sure is going all out to perpetuate this whole delay excuse thing.
