Total including FE's.  You were at the top of the FE (by 1) but someone surpassed the total today.  You're now 1 behind.  :)

 

 

Damn.  That's just mean.

Hopefully later today you guys get past the atari vcs GoFundMe preorders and whatever the eestimste online and walmart gamestop pre orders are. 

 

Because pat said you guys won't be able to top atari because no one knows intellivision unlike atari. Lol  that was in a video months ago I think during the 5k quote or after. Lol 


I can tell ya this... I know what the pre-orders are for Atari and it's really sad.  I'm mean REALLY sad and embarrassing.  They really need to get their messaging together.

 

And that's from Walmart.com & Gamestop.com (Atari will NOT be in retail like us).

We will hands down beat Atari in the 21st Century.  It's a guaranteed fact.

I figured that by looking at facebook responses.    I seen people ask will the VCs be available in Canada or uk. Middle east and so on.  Atari's only response. 

 

.after a successful usa launch we will talk more about other launches..

 

I seriously choke up try not to laugh when I see them respond that way.  It's like they only expect to make what they promise and maybe a few more  just to save face and if dont sell so be it.

 

 

Kinda sad I would love them to bring a legit great game machine. But even without the virus they been missed multiple launch periods.   They lucked into this unfortunate  excuse.    They could calm.people down and show some game footage if they have any.

 

 

"Less news is good news" "hardware is hard"  

 

;)

 

Tommy maybe intellivision  ends up. Buying atari and just owning the ip and logo for fully exclusive rights to.ip and more tshirts :)

Don't forget the Speaker Hats as well!

We've almost caught them on Facebook followers (without spending ANY money).  Still got some work to do on YouTube... But our YouTube is growing pretty good (again... without spending any money).  Wait til the marketing kicks in.  :)

So Tommy, what's the mood like in the Intellivision office today?  Is everyone excited, or too busy to even notice?

Ahhh.  Right.  Social distancing and what not.  I just imagine Tommy riding a scooter around the office shouting, "SUCK IT!!"

The freeways are wide open. He's probably racing around in his ferrari shouting that. (Racing around at the speed limit, because he's safe and responsible.)

Unfortunately no one in the office!  Remember...  Zombie Apocalypse still going on!  :)

 

We are all on Slack giving virtual high fives and passing around super funny memes.

I picture that scene in the 2nd episode of Walking Dead where Glenn is racing the car down the freeway with the alarm goin off.

When Amico becomes a huge success I want Intellivision to buy Vectrex and I'll bring that one back next!!!!!!!!!

 

 

Um yes... Please... I'll sign up now! My Vectrex dies after 5 minutes of using it. It's sitting at a friends house, He fixes these sorts of things. Full Disclosure, it's been sitting at his house since the PS3 was a new console. Not sure if he knows where it is. But I still have quite a number of carts! Including an original Multicart.  

 

I would love to see what Tommy could do with the Vectrex!!!!! Classic mode.. Full Color mode.  TOMMY MODE!!!!

is there an Intellivision Amico facebook group that's run by the members of this group? 


Aside from our official Facebook page:

https://www.facebook.com/Intellivision/

 

A lot of folks hang out at the Intellivision Invasion group:
https://www.facebook.com/groups/intellivisioninvasion/

 

By the way everyone... lets WELCOME level1online!

 

He's the guy who I did the interview with a few days ago.  And he does the BEST Puffy impression so far I think!

 

Watch in amazement!

Just saw MetalJesus tweet. Really positive and it's good the word is getting out. 

 

But there's a lot of the typical responses to his tweet, a lot of people thinking this is an ipad or something and not really fully understanding this is a dedicated console you can play on TV with dedicated controllers.

Thanks for the heads up!

Just responded to him and retweeted.

 

Answered a few of the "lies" in his responses.  Of course they'll say I can't take criticism.  Um no... I can't take people LYING about the console.  :)

 

Looks like folks in there are split 50/50.  Although the ones that don't like it say it's just crappy mobile games and the same as an Ouya.

I wonder who else they've been listening to?

:D

Hahahha!

 

Although... I don't think I've ever driven the speed limit in those cars.
