What is an Intellivision?

The Mattel Intellivision is a home video game system that was released in 1979 by Mattel Electronics, makers of Barbie and Hot Wheels to name a few.

It was a direct competitor of the Atari 2600 and was a moderate success worldwide. Games for the system were still being released into the early 1990's via mail-in orders. A total of over 3 million Intellivision consoles were sold worldwide. Many Intellivision products were released after that era, including LCD handhelds, compilations on Playstation 2, Xbox, Gamecube and Nintendo DS. Also the Intellivision Flashback in the 2014. 

The Mattel Intellivision has had a very active aftermarket gaming scene with new games being released each year by many publishers. The first homebrews being released in the early 2000's and then taking off in the early 2010's. These new games releases are keeping the Mattel Intellivision legacy alive up to  today!
