We originally planned for around 40 minutes.  Might be closer to an hour though as we are adding lots of cool stuff.  Starting to edit with my team this weekend.  I'm assuming it will be somewhere between 45 - 60 mins tops.

 

 

Alright, great. I'll be there!

Hey Tommy,

the founders edition lapel pin is a sexy piece of merch. I was wondering it will become available from the IE website at any time?

As of now, those are only for Founders.

 

We may do a different style at some point, but that one will strictly be for the Founders only.

Will the event be recorded for those of us unable to watch live and must you watch live to be eligible for the prize if you win?

 

Yes!  The event will be watchable after it's over right from our YouTube page.

 

You don't need to watch live to be a winner.  Just gotta sign up for the event BEFORE midnight, July 31st.  We will pick the winner on August 1st and reveal the winner during the August 4th Special Event.

 

Here's the link and more info:

Thanks!

Then near the end he drops his dream of a VR-sex system and thought Tommy should have gone that route.  Forget fun for the family and kids, that market is ok, let's all invest in a virtual reality sex machine.  I can't believe what I just watched. lol


Hahhhaa!  Really?  Are you serious?  He was got to be joking right?

I'm hoping that people will be happy.

I think we'll get a new Ship date.  I'm sure he's heard it from us.. That is more than fine with us.  I'm sad for Tommy as this is important to him.  But regardless of how we feel about lockdown vs Opening. Masks Vs. Karens.. Sorry meant to say Vs No Masks.  I think we can all agree that The Amico team's health and safety is way more important than a ship date.  Although bucking compliance with California does garner free headlines. (Even pretending to).  Again.. Don't want to put you all in any danger.

 

I think the 8/4 video will be more about games than anything else. 

 

Games, the people making them, the console and the company... and a ton of new announcements!

But really the only way I'll probably be disappointed is if the whole thing is about a mobile phone app or intellivision crypto currency or intellivision hotels or some such nonsense. 

 

That will NOT be Something!

Closer to 45 minutes.  Could be up to an hour.  Will know a lot more mid next week as our first pass editing is done.

That's great to hear Tommy.  Make it happen.  I was fine with it being 30 minutes but a longer event is better if done right.  Either way, I'm happy.  After the event is over and you post the video later to watch again, I'll be re-watching it many times as I'm sure most here will do.

So had my first Amico dream last night. Basically I get my console and I'm playing it, but instead of being at home I'm in some warehouse or store or something and there are a bunch of other people all playing Amicos. Then I look over to my left and I see Tommy so I walk over to congratulate him and he sees me and he's like "Mike! Great you could make it" and then goes in for the Italian double kiss on the cheeks. Then we're talking about the games and I'm telling him everything I like about them.

Hey @Tommy Tallarico... Ironically (considering most messages here are NOT questions), you missed my last question! 😆👉👈 Here it goes again:

 

Quote

Hey Tommy, I have a semi-hard question: what do you think has been your biggest mistake since you started this project?

 

And here's a second question, now that you're at it: has Coronavirus affected the content of any of the games? I. e. more references to masks in edutainment games.

@Urlu Berlu Over here in germany since april in every shop and public buildings, trains, buses they are mandatory. When you go outside fe to a park or so then not. Still wondering that Intellivision doesn`t sell Covid 19 masks on their shop. Over here every radio station mostly every soccer club and mostly everybody selling masks today. Even the supermarkets... I would really love to have one with the Intellivision Man on it :)

Good point. In the dream we were maskless! I guess I'm hoping for better times.

I am really hoping for a confirmation of a 2020 launch at least for the FE. If not a confirmation of a delay with an updated launch day or window.

Not a dream!  A premonition!

Hmm... that's a good question.

 

I would say giving a broad price range in the very first video we released a few years ago ($149 - $179).  Even though that was our initial intention and target price, the console was far from completed and going above that price has probably created a little bit of bad blood among some folks.  Should have waited another year to mention pricing.  The reason we mentioned a "range" so early is that we wanted people to understand this wasn't going to be priced like the big 3... or even priced like the AtariVCS... but we also wanted folks to know it wasn't a $99 Ouya or just some emulator box, etc.  Wanted to be in the middle.  And although we're at the upper end of "the middle", I think a bunch of people ended up disappointed as they thought they were going to get it at $149.  But once people see it, feel it and play it... they will quickly understand why it's not $149.  Especially with 2 separate controllers with touchscreens and a bunch of other cool tech AND 6 games.  The reality is (as many have heard me say before) the main people who will be purchasing the machine... don't even know we exist yet.... so good news there.  And we've done massive amounts of price testing with our retailers and our target audience... and once they find out about it, a $249 price tag doesn't turn them away in the least.  And after it's out and getting fantastic reviews and becomes successful... at $199 it will be even better!  That's the hope & dream anyway.  :)

 

Coronovirus has not affected any of the content in any of our games.  People want an escape from that... not a reminder.

Indeed. Coronavirus shouldn't permeate it way into game content, or in dreams for that matter.
