    Default Boxed Intellivsion Questions....

    I obtained this by accident. I NEVER get anything this old still boxed, please check out the links. I have a few questions, aka I don't want to screw this up.

    Close up of the box says DEMO, it's a sticker.

    And the inside with the styrofoam.

    Now I don't want to mess with it too much. I do want to plug it in since my Inv III suddenly stopped working on me. Here's my questions:
    1. What's with the Demo sticker?
    2. Anything I should look for?, it's been sitting for 25+ years.
    3. I haven't pulled it out, any pack in games buried in there?
    4. Is there a way to know if it came from the Fresno test area? (Yes I did some reading but came across no solid evidence to help my case any.)
    5. Should I just leave it alone and wait for the next Inv I come across?

    I do sell on ebay occaisionally to ease the spending and create some mad money to continue my addicting hobby. I think we all do that. I thought about ebaying this but I am hesitant if this is a real gem rather to hold on to it instead.

    I am stretching this a bit, but on the other hand some good advise is what I am seeking from my DP friends. Thanks guys Happy New Year!

    Applied to the box for the retail store demo unit so that it wouldn't be sold / inventoried. It's just a regular old INTV with a sticker on the box. No biggie.

    2. Anything I should look for?, it's been sitting for 25+ years.
    ???

    3. I haven't pulled it out, any pack in games buried in there?
    It should come with Poker/Blackjack, but you're the only one who can confirm what's still in there.

    4. Is there a way to know if it came from the Fresno test area? (Yes I did some reading but came across no solid evidence to help my case any.)
    It didn't.

    5. Should I just leave it alone and wait for the next Inv I come across?
    ???

    No. If you want to play the INTV, play it. The market for INTV stuff is at an all-time low, I'd be surprised if you could get $20 for the boxed setup.

    I do sell on ebay occaisionally to ease the spending and create some mad money to continue my addicting hobby. I think we all do that. I thought about ebaying this but I am hesitant if this is a real gem rather to hold on to it instead.
    It's not a gem, but it's a good system in nice shape. I'd keep it, but I like to play INTV games. If you don't find the INTV fun, sell or trade it, whatever works best for you. But I wouldn't expect to get much for it either way.
    Selling collection, Atari through XBox. Send a PM with whatever games you're looking for.

    I knew about the low end ebaywise.
    I have a great time playing the games. Not into Utopia type games, I am more towards the arcade side of the system. It is very mint! The 25+ years question referred to anything broken/melted or any issues the Inv was proned to from the factory.
    If it came from Fresno, how do I know?

    I have no idea how you can tell if it is from Fresno but you can tell if it's an early model if:

    the box is much bigger than the console
    the serial number is low
    the computer add-on is hyped on the box
    I think the controller is different where the overlay slides in (no ridge along the edge)

    good luck in your research.

    I sold a INT. 2 Boxed for over $60 on ebay so you might want to try selling it there if that what you want to do

    I'm gonna go hunting today. If I find one, I'll message you! You ought to do the same. Folks like to donate their old games after replacing it with all the new stuff! Christmas = great finds!
