The Amico hasn't been released, yet so of course you won't find it in stores right now. However Intellivision Entertainment has been announcing retail store partners which will have them in store upon release. These include Game Stop & Koch Media is handing the in-store distribution in Europe, Australia & New Zealand (much to the delight of several Australians here & on Reddit). So far physical stores in Europe that have been announced are MediaMarkt and Saturn and while Game Stop is the only American store announced so far - it is rumored that the Amico will be carried in several other major North American retailers like Walmart & Target.

Of course. The boss had said they were in retail. They are not. Whatever is going on behind the scenes is irrelevant. It is either in retail stores for me to buy, or it isn't.

Yeah let ignore signed contracts of distribution and focus on phrasing of a statement. So sorry Tommy didn't use the term of "will be in retail" like everyone (including you) knows would have to be the case because you know the product hasn't shipped. Thanks for trolling here and wasting everyone's time, take your prize (and my disgust) and now I can block you happily and never worry about what you say again. :)

Like JuncoLand and Boobages, LameStop gets such a limited amount of units sent to each store. And the hawks have an 'in' with management, so you've got to be quick on the draw. My advice is to keep calling them every day and check stock. You could try reserving a unit, but like Rikki, they'll probably just lose your number - and you don't wanna call nobody else.

Great to hear!

Also, since you control the game store and we can think "modern" and "outside the box", I think that if a digital game is purchased, your account would be eligible to buy a print-on-demand large size thick trading card (maybe full box size) of what the front box art would look like if it existed and the back can be personalized to the account name and have tips and tricks.

Or along the same vein, an actual cardboard mini box with a regular size trading card (ship the mini box flat, people can glue themselves, insert trading card and a backup sd card of their own if they want when assembled)

He is just picking at a post where Tommy said "they are in retail" because Tommy has signed retail agreements. The Amico hasn't shipped and so of course there are not units in stores. I guarantee you he never called Game Stop an has no interest in the Amico. I was just waiting for him to admit he knows it hasn't shipped to show he is just trying to stir up a non existent controversy. He is just wasting everyone time here.

Oh' Mah GAWD!!!

 

I'm gone for a couple of weeks and there's like 50 pages of drama queens lecturing Tommy on how to run his business, and I can't get smart-assy cuz that would be re-animating zombies. Giant Crying Emoji that doesn't exist goes here.

 

Congrats Pete on 1000 subs! 👍

Welcome back!

Thought... (and sorry for being that annoying Forum junkie constantly eating up space of the Forum webserver - this is super fun):

 

Since this system will not be immediately online multiplayer I am foreseeing all the Amico YouTuber dudes streaming their screens in a live cast to compete for the higher score and that would be a form of multiplayer.  Thoughts?

Oh gosh... here we are in 2020. Am well aware Amico is not in stores yet and Keatah's pretending to be dense, because he's bored and doesn't have any emulation or Apple ][ threads currently to post in. Oh, and there's no more Babbages or FuncoLand. And Steely Dan isn't just slang for dildo.  

;)

Sorry the humor in my post was lost on you.   :P

Hi,

 

Can you give me a little more information as to what you'd like to know.

I'm confused as what you're asking and stating exactly.

The product hasn't been released yet, so of course it isn't on store shelves.  But it is absolutely 100% being sold at retail.  Gamestop as the example.

Here's the link if you're interested in buying it from a retail store:
https://www.gamestop.com/search/?q=intellivision+amico&lang=default 

 

So again, I'm just curious to understand what you're asking about or confused about. 

 

Please let me know so I can clear it up for you.

 

Thanks.

Thats because they dont come out till 10/10/20

Just like when you can preorder a ps5 you pay up front then on the release date you pick it up.

It could just be added to the 8-bit console high score challenge list.

Definitely to that board, but also if there were 2-4 different YouTubers streaming their screens on a live show it could be kin to online multiplayer.  Just a thought and I am sure they were already thinking this.

My next door neighbors sister and entire family had covid.

My forklift driver at works Dad has it.

Does that help you understand the virus exists and is not a hoax?

It sure is real enough for me!

Some folks just believe in what they want (or what’s convenient), at least right up to when it comes up and bites them in the ass.

Covid or Amico (or the big P): for some people it’s like they are stuck playing a rail shooter.  Facts don’t play a factor In their opinion/beliefs and it is their nature to not change their minds once they are on that rail

Oh certainly, why have someone else print your games when you can do it yourself? I get what you're saying.

 

I think some people might've misconstrued my original question, though.

 

I was referring to places that do things a bit more traditionally; that is, one party makes the product, and another party sells it. VideoGamesPlus came to mind because they're literally just a normal online retailer.

 

And Limited Run has been getting into that kinda thing, too; their "Distribution Line" (https://www.limitedrungames.com/collections/distributed-releases) is just a fancy name for stuff they sell that isn't produced by them.

 

Hope this clears things up!
