Mattel’s Intellivision was the first serious challenge to the Atari VCS/2600, released nationwide in 1980. I tell the console’s story, show you the hardware and some of the games, give tips on starting your collection and even open a brand new, still in shrinkwrap 1982 copy of Burgertime on camera!

Thanks to the comments below, I found a video of the TV show I mention in the Space Battle segment, it was actually “TV Pixxx” from WPIX (I was right the first time!) in New York City: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UJN9eM84Rq8
At :30 they show the Space Battle variant.
I mentioned in the video that I’d leave a list of some of my favorite games for the system. This is that list, in no particular order (but it is the order in which I thought of them, so take that as you will):
B-17 Bomber (Intellivoice)
This is not an exhaustive list, but just some of my personal favorites, and games I think stand the test of time.
