    • Intellivision Amico - Neue Konsole ab 2020

      Das Atari VCS bekommt Konkurrenz.
      Es soll wohl auch ein neues Intellivision kommen.

      golem.de/news/spielebranche-ne…-geplant-1805-134670.html

      Kein geringerer als Chiptune Legende Tommy Tallarico hat scheinbar die Rechte gekauft und will mit seiner neuen Firma Intellivision Entertainment eine neue Konsole bringen.

      Es gibt noch keine Details. Die sollen erst im Oktober folgen. Die ersten 100000 Leute, die sich für den Newsletter registrieren erhalten jedoch besondere exxxxxklusive Kaufmöglichkeiten.

      Diese News ist so bizarr. Dass mit Tallarico ein bekannter Name der Spielebranche involviert ist macht es sogar irgendwie noch merkwürdiger. ^^

    • Bekannter Name aber doch erst nach der Zeit des Intellivision und die News wirkt ungewollt lustig. "Die ersten 100.000 Subscriber" = ca. 98.000 Leute mehr als die Käuferschicht groß ist (absurd positiv geschätzt).

      Keith Roberstson is ja vor kurzem gestorben, der afaik die Rechte hatte. Keine Ahnung welche Rechte jetzt genau sind die sich dieser Typ da gekauft hat, wird sich zeigen. Rechne aber mit viel Dampf um nichts, also maximal ein Flachback 2.0 oder sowas.

      "Intellivision - The Game" (XBO, PS4, SWI)
      Spiele den ca. 30 jährigen I.Rama und hole seine Kindheitserinnerung zurück! Kaufe, verkaufe und tausche Spiele um an Geld sowie seltenere Spiele zu kommen. In J´n´R, Racing und Shoot´em Up Passagen,welche an die großen Intellivision Klassiker angelehnt sind, musst du zum Zoll, zu Packstationen und weiteren Zielen. Aber sei schnell. Der Countdown bis die Spiele zurückgehen läuft erbarmungslos runter.
      Viele der Intellivision Klassiker sind im Spielfreischalt- und dann in der persönlichen Sammlung spielbar.
      Schaffst du es alle 125 Intellivision Spiele zu sammeln?

      :P

      Es soll halt ein anspruchsvolles Spiel sein. Frustrierend ist bestimmt auch der Insta-Death beim Handeln: Wenn man nicht aufpasst wird das erwartete Spiel leider mit ´ermes versendet und ist damit dann unerreichbar. :P

    • Tommy Tallarico hat in ner Game Dev Gruppe bei Facebook, in der ich bin gepostet.

      Habe in den Kommentaren mal meine Skepsis angemerkt.


      Hi Everyone! Just joined this amazing group/community! If you aren't aware, we have announced that a brand new Intellivision console will be coming out in a few years! The Facebook page for the new console is: Intellivision Entertainment. We are actively seeking developers to create for the system and we will be recreating a lot of classic games (updates of graphics & audio, similar to what they did a few years ago with R-Type). The system will also have a TON of brand new all exclusive games as well. So if you have an idea and a team that you are looking to get funded and published... please let us know!

      Feel free to send me an e-mail directly at: Tommy@IntellivisionEntertainment.com and please feel free to ask me ANY questions here. Our approach is VERY different than the Ouya, Chameleon, Atari VCS in SO many ways! First.... NO CROWDFUNDING! :)

      Although I can't divulge the hardware specs yet... I can tell you that if you can create in Unity... then you'll be happy. :) We will NOT be doing any 3D games on the system. Only 2.5D or 2D. Power of the machine is NOT important for the styles of games we are creating.

      Also... we will have a huge presence at the Portland Retro Game Expo in October. Hope to get the chance to meet some folks from here! Lots of info about the console will be revealed on stage during our keynote!

      Hope to start a positive dialogue with everyone here and please feel free to reach out over e-mail to set up a time to talk over the phone.

      Thanks!

      Tommy Tallarico
      President

    • Tommy hat auf meinen sehr skeptischen Kommentar sogar geantwortet.


      Hi Daniel, No worries. I totally understand the skepticism. And just so you're aware... EVERYTHING that we are doing is on a huge scale with TONS of developers, publishers, major licenses, cash in the bank, millions in marketing, all exclusive titles, etc., etc., etc...

      As you mentioned... at this point it's beyond your imagination of how we can be successful... so you'll need to wait til October to become a believer. :) And that's totally fine. I know that once you find out more info... you'll be 100% on board and it will all make sense. In the meantime... if you're interested in finding out more... feel free to listen to the recent live stream interview I did. It has been instantly changing a lot of people's minds:

      Intellivision® Reveals Initial Details For The Upcoming Amico™ Home Video Game Console!

      GROUNDBREAKING CONSOLE APPROACHES GAMING AND THE ENTIRE GAME INDUSTRY IN A COMPLETELY UNIQUE WAY
      Almost 40 years after the release of the original Intellivision® home video game system which helped to redefine the video game industry, Intellivision®Entertainment is proud to carry on its "Legacy of Firsts"[/i] by announcing the brand new revolutionary family home video game console named Amico™ to be released on October 10th, 2020 (1010 2020). Amico is the Italian word for "friend" or "buddy" and encapsulates an element of the approach and dynamics for what makes the new console so unique and an exciting addition to everyone's family.
      Intellivision Amico - Sketch Reveal 2 (Overhead & Lighting)Intellivision Amico - Sketch Reveal 1 (Front & Back)Intellivision Amico - Sketch Reveal 4 (Controllers)"We are creating a console that parents WANT to buy, not that they were asked to buy," stated Intellivision president and 30 year industry veteran Tommy Tallaricoduring his keynote address over the weekend at the Portland Retro Gaming Expo. Tallarico went on to say, "Most every game being made for the home consoles these days is created with only the hardcore gamer in mind. We see a world where everyone is interested in playing at home and with friends, but this isn't currently possible because the barrier to entry is nearly impossible for a non-gamer due to the complexity of the controllers, intricacy of gameplay, expense of the hardware and software and steep learning curve with an unbalanced fun factor for the beginner. Our goal was to create a console that both gamers and non-gamers are able to have fun with and play together. The Intellivision Amico is our answer to this gaping hole we see within the current video game industry."
      Intellivision Entertainment continues to build upon its gaming legacy with support and expertise from industry veterans and superstars, including longtime product manager/producer/marketer Jason Enos(involved in over 100 products launches, including the Metal Gear Solid®, Castlevania®, Contra®, Dance Dance Revolution®, Silent Hill®, TEKKEN™, Ace Combat®, Dragon Ball Z®, Monopoly® and PAC-MAN™ franchises), Perrin Kaplan(Zebra Partners, former Nintendo VP of Marketing & Corporate Affairs; launched the Nintendo Wii®, Nintendo DS®, Super Nintendo®, Nintendo Gamecube®, N64®), Beth Llewlyn (Zebra Partners, former Nintendo PR; launched the Nintendo Wii®, Nintendo DS®, Pokemon™), Scott Tsumura (Tozai Games, formerly co-founder and President of Nintendo Software Technology Corporation, and a pioneer in the early days of arcade game production, including Moon Patrol, Kung Fu Master, 10 Yard Fight, etc.), Phil Adam(Founder of Spectrum Holobyte, President & VP of Interplay Productions, helped introduce Tetris® to the world), André LaMothe (Hardware Evangelist, programmer, designer, author, over 750 products to market, artificial intelligence design for NASA) and advisor David Perry(Earthworm Jim™, Disney's Aladdin™, founder of Shiny Entertainment and co-founder of Gaikai cloud gaming utilized in the Sony PlayStation®4).
      Game industry analyst and Wedbush Securities Managing Director of Equity Research Michael Pachter commented, "I think it's about time somebody focused on families with kid-friendly games. Intellivision has a long history of delivering content that everybody can enjoy, and with the revived console priced right, I expect it to be immensely successful. The company has the right leadership and is positioned in an underserved niche, I think the re-launch will be a home run."
      "Intellivision Entertainment is also proud to announce that it joins console manufacturers Sony®, Microsoft® and Nintendo® as the fourth game console company to be an active member of the Entertainment Software Association (ESA). The ESA's mission is dedicated to serving the business and public affairs needs of the video game industry as well as owning and operating the Electronic Entertainment Exposition (E3)."

      "The average age of a gamer today is 34 years old, and the market reflects that with a broad array of games for people of all ages. Of course, some parents may find that many of those games are not age-appropriate for their children," said ESRB president, Patricia Vance. "Intellivision's policy to only offer games rated E for Everyone and E10+ for Everyone 10 and up on its new system makes finding the right games easier for busy families, especially those with young gamers."

      Bluntman3000: "bin in mpnchtennünchrn"
    • Fast 200 US-Dollar für Billigspielchen? Ambitioniert... Ich finde die Idee wegen der Retroklassiker charmant, aber da rennen die Entwickler auch wieder sofort weg, sobald sie die Verkäufe sehen. Der Flop ist vorprogrammiert. Es wundert mich nur, dass sich Köpfe von Shiny für sowas hergeben. War denen langweilig?
    • Gerade wegen der Beiden denke ich, dass das hier zumindest als Nischenmaschine eher was Gutes werden könnte als das Atari VCS

      Wirkliche Retroklassiker wird es ja nicht geben; sie wollen die Klassiker generalüberholen mit neuen Features, besserer Grafik und so weiter. Ich stelle mir da sowas vor wie eben früher Tempest 2000 als Neuinterpretation von Tempest, und Robotron 64 als neue Version von Robotron 2084. Es soll keine Ports geben.

      Was sie auch gesagt haben: Diese Konsole soll ein absolutes 2D Powerhouse sein und im 2D Bereich PS4 und Xbox One übertreffen. Was denkbar ist, da die ja eigentlich komplett für 3D entwickelt sind und selbst 2D Games oft mit für 3D gedachten Techniken "tricksen".

      150$ sind auch günstig. Mit dem Konzept von familienfreundlichen Spielen, die die Eltern gerne ihren Kindern kaufen (bei 3 - 8 Dollar pro Spiel) haben sie ein Alleinstellungsmerkmal und können auf die Casuals Marke Wii abzielen. Die Controllet mit dem Touchscreen, und dass man per App sein Smartphone als Controller nutzen kann scheinen auch interessante Gimmicks zu sein.

      Von daher ... Gerade bei Perry (der nicht steinreich im Games Business geworden ist weil er nen schlechten Riecher hat) denke ich, dass es Hand und Fuß hat.

      Größtes Problem sehe ich darin, wie man Devs dazu bekommen will Games exklusiv für Amico zu entwickeln. Die Konsole mit der kleinsten Userbasis. Wahrscheinlich haben sie da auch eine Idee, sowas wie Subventionierung wie bei Sonys Pub Fund.

      Aber ich kann mir nicht vorstellen, dass David Perry sein Geld in eine sichere Totgeburt steckt. Da muß etwas sehr durchdachtes hinterstecken. Sogar Michael Pachter, der wohl bekannteste Marktanalyst zu Videospielen scheint das Projekt ja relativ positiv zu sehen.

    • Dann in kurz:
      10.Oktober 2020.
      Also noch lange hin. Bis dahin könnten Sony und MS Intellivison auch trollen und einfach in ihre neuen Konsolen extra bessere 2D Hardware einbauen. :tooth:
      Aber ich denke, dass ihnen das der Aufwand nicht wert ist.

      Intellivision ziehlt ja klar auf eine Nische. Easy to play und inexpensive. Ahnlich Smartphone Games vom Konzept, würde ich grob sagen, aber eben speziell für zuhause entwickelt ohne Paywalls. Großer Unterschied zu Ouya & co, die einfach direkt lieblos Smartphone Games mit nem Controllet steuerbar gemacht haben, aber mit derselben Grundidee günstiger Spiele, die man nicht wegen übermäßiger Komplexität erlernen muß.

      Und dass die Spiele maximal ein ESRB Rating von E10+ haben werden grenzt sie ja auch davon ab, direkte Konkurrenz zu sein.
