    This could be done good, but these games look like cheap mobile games made on Unity. When I think of quality 2d games I think on Shovel Knight, Shantae or Sonic Manía, not this.

    this is doomed to fail because the market this is aimed at which is casuals and kids will just play these type of games on their phones it doesn't matter if this has exclusives i am sure they will just be clones of many other games already available elsewhere. also those controllers are fucking ugly and horrible. what did they design this off a 1980's telephone?! :lol:

    Eh, this doesn't feel like its going to be a successful console, it feels like its mainly targeting the people who used to own the original Intellivision with the reimaginings and remasters of older games and that's alright, but it seems like its going to be way too niche. Also it targets "causal gamers" when most people that play games don't want to be seen as causal and the actual casuals play mobile games.
    The YouTube comments seem kinda excited, but i'm pretty sure its going to flop.
    Also was getting some OUYA vibes from the trailer with the "redefining entertainment with family and friends" and the "fun with a group of people" stuff.

    ...pretty sure it's meant to be evocative of the original systems - and in that regard it looks great... how ergonomic or "good" it is will remain to be seen.

    Don't be surprised if this ends up being an OUYA 2.0

    The guy is confusing home entertainment with arcades.
    So i guess people who were in arcades could like this?
    They all look like arcade games anyway, only thing missing is "insert coin".

    that controller still looks like ass

    and i remember when they said the system would only do 2D games, but "really good looking 2D games that the other consoles can't do"
    last i checked consoles as far back as the ps1 and n64 were capable of 2.5D, which is what this thing seems to have judhing by those games

    Most (if not all) of the games in this trailer are remakes of old Atari/Intellivision games. I certainly recognize Moon Patrol, Asteroids and Lock'n'Chase there.

    These are all basic arcade style highscore chase games that very few of the younger generation will be interested in. It looks like they are creating this console mainly for people with nostalgia for the original Intellivision console which can't be that many.

    Like I said, they might as well just put these games on a compilation and release them on already existing consoles.

    Earthworm Jim alone can't save this thing.

    Edit:
    I stand corrected.:)

    yeah you pay 60$ plus stadia monthly fee to stream the game and then if you miss the stadia dee you loose the ability to play the game so you just lost your 60$ lol.

    but yeah those intel games look like something found on the android shop games really, i have zero interest on this list, i dont think atari like games aged well, they have no end just infinite playthrough until you die to get a high score, so meh i dont play games that dont end.

    Asteroids and Moon Patrol were never officially released for the Intellivision. They were on the Atari VCS though.

    You got me. I didn't know that. It was the homebrew clone "Space Patrol" that I played a while ago.

    I'm only familiar with the Intellivision through emulation. There's an excellent homebrew Arcade Donkey Kong port for it, that's how I became interested in the console.

    Dude spends the whole video reiterating the same point. Regardless, this could be cool. Curious to see how it pans out.

    Well to be fair, a lot of companies do that. ;o; (though ofc I'm not saying that's right)

    I do not think this console is for some one who not have nostalgia to Intelivision. This vid isn't impressive even graphically. I think that most of players buy switch compared to this. I do not think this controllers are comfortable, they also wanna provide some app to use smartphone as controllers (lag). Even if this is cheap, but 0% chances compared to Switch that isn't only for 2D simple games.
