$100 for both?

It’s 100 bucks for the INTV 2, which looks in great shape. And then 65 bucks for the system changer. What does that even do? I’ve heard about it before but that’s about it.

It lets you play Atari 2600 games on your Intellivision.  You can use the Intellivision's controllers or plug in Atari controllers into the System Changer.

Oh wow. So I should probably get that, then. Too bad it doesn’t match my gen 1 console.

As long as you have a bunch of Atari games you still want to play.  🙂

LOL.  So that might be a pass for you then.  Unless you want to pay $65, then go shopping for Atari games.  Yuck!  😆

Only thing making it tempting is how plentiful Atari games are compared to intellivision. That and it’s such an odd piece of video game hardware

Agreed, it is pretty cool.  Go for it!

It doesn't work with the Intellivision I anyway (without modification).

You can play M Network games with it  (the games Mattel made for the VCS).

Oh thanks for the heads up. Then I should just buy the intv 2 system! I’ve always liked the look of that console.

I like the look of the INTV 2 as well but I use the original to play games because the INTV 2 controllers are unusable.  Those side buttons are terrible.

lol, it’s hard to imagine worse side buttons than what already came with the first system😂

The thing with the side buttons on the Inty II is that you have to tap them very slightly, almost like sensor buttons. But everyone tries to press them very hard (including me) like they know it from the Inty I.

Believe it or not, they are worse on the Inty 2.

If that Intv2 is missing the power supply (it is not shown in the picture) then you may want to stay away from it, or source a somewhat compatible wall adapter.

 

and while it does look nice, I think $100 is a little steep for it; especially if it is missing the power supply.

Thanks for the insight. Not sure about the power supply either...

Yep, I would bet you'd be able to get a CIB Inty 2 on eBay for $100 or less, and likely with games.
