    I'd be down for just the games at this point. EMJ2 and whatever remakes they were talking about is fine. It's vastly better than the current nothingburger.

    With the games being released on other systems, maybe Intellivision should just have a separate company for publishing....M Network was taken....how about A Network? I Network? They could get exclusivity on the Atari VCS console.

    Assuming they can get back/keep the trademark, it all could be published under Atari VCS and call it a day.

    Following up on this, the console is still kaput unless they suddenly make lots and lots of money. However, the Amico is now an app, called Amico Home.
    It requires two cellphones to use, one to act as the controller and the other to act as the screen. Unless you have the official Amico controller, which hasn't been manufactured yet.

    But hey, Greg, you were right to keep the faith! The Amico lives!

    Not me! I never had any, but like I said two years ago, the trademark "lapsing" meant nothing. You can still buy their set of lovely EMPTY boxes with a promise of 8 games to come!

    Yes, they long ago gave up on the console, and have been attempting to scrounge up funding to produce the controller, which would play via Bluetooth, on Android devices. What's absolutely absurd is how homebrew folks are able to construct new consoles and controllers with no money, and these guys continue to flop. Frankly, they should have considered building USB Intellivision controller replicas, as well as a "modern" pad for the original systems. At least you could have sold a few hundred of those to INTV collectors.

    Apparently Tommy Tallarico has also listed his home for sale for 3 million, the one he's been in for roughly 30 years and showed off on some program and then lied about, claiming it was from MTV Cribs. So that doesn't particularly bode well for the status of the Amico.
