I’ll be honest, I wish I knew more about what to expect. I know that they plan to remake a bunch of their classic games, Atari’s classic games, and iMagic classic games for the system in addition to at least 20 brand-new exclusive titles. The catch is, I have no idea what to expect. I don’t know if this is 8-bit, 16-bit, 3D, 2D, or anything. Based on what I’m seeing, I’m guessing that it will be 8-bit, maybe 16-bit.

The controllers are also interesting with a touchscreen and positional disc in addition to 4 buttons, a gyroscope, and accelerometer. This sounds like a simplified and supped up Wiimote. In addition, based on the trailer, up to 8 people can potentially play at once and use their smartphones as controllers.

Intellivision appears to want the price point of the Amico to be friendly at somewhere between $140-180. That’s a lot less than most modern consoles. Combine that with the games designed to cost less than $10 each and supposedly no microtransactions or DLC and some people are loving this. I need a bit more before I start thinking it’s a great idea, but we also have more than a year to go until it releases. What are your thoughts?
