I was never an Intellivision guy, went from Atari to NES, to Genesis to PC, with a smattering of other consoles here and there since. It's very cool that they are wanting to stay to their roots, as well as bringing back original team members. Hopefully they will bring some original ideas with them.

"I grew up playing Intellivision with my parents and younger brother," says Tallarico. "It was always my favorite system because the games were cutting edge, yet fun and simple to play so our entire family could enjoy them together. I find those important elements to generally be lacking from our industry with the current modern gaming consoles. Our goal is to change that by focusing on bringing all age groups and levels of gamers and non-gamers together while introducing new generations of people to the legacy success of the Intellivision brand."
