    Nintendo has the capital, but they are smart when it comes to drawing the battle lines.

    It would have had to been in the very late 80s. My family put out a small paper like the Nickel Trader in the early 90s. They used a black and white MAC to put the paper together. Somehow they had...

    Old PC manuals, especially RPGs, had novel sized manuals. Some were even spiral bound. I have a Baldurís Gate manual that easily has over 150 pages.

    Iím pretty sure itís just like you said, where they would cut and paste images on a sheet and then photo copy it thousands of times. Imagine what was like cutting and pasting a news paper together.

    The only handheld that ever challenged Nintendo was the PSP. And that was because it had a rear lit, high quality, LCD screen and hardware that was 80% the power of its current console. Meanwhile...

    I have a light scribe CD drive. Never did much with it. I donít even know if I could find the discs for it now.

    Nintendoís online service is miles behind PSN and LIVE. Their core audience is the reason they got out of the hardware power race.

    Anyone that listens to that over-rated pos Jim ďloudmouthĒ Sterling is a retard. Heís a bigger waste of time than any Shenmue game.

    You see what I did there?

    It was supposed to have the same
    CPU clocked @3.5 MHz, 4096 colors, higher resolutions and more ROM. It was considered to be a stepped up Intellivision, until they designed a next gen console.

    Love me some Mr. Do! Played it on an old room mateís Atari 800 XL and later got it for my SNES.

    I'd like the Switch more as a portable device, and I'll probably get one later on. I just got a 3DS not too long ago though, so it is my current choice for portable gaming.

    Stadia isn't going anywhere. It's a game streaming service that will fail just like Sony's own Playstation Now, and several other outfits that tried to do it over the past couple of years.

    I only...

    The F18a video upgrade fixed the flicker issues in all existing Colecovision games. It was a hardware issue that caused it. The F18a is a bit overkill, because it outputs RGB via VGA.

    My beef with...

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure most of the members on this board don't even remember what 70's arcade games looked like. Combat on the 2600 was pretty much Key Games Tank with added fights including planes....

    The Intellevision needed larger carts. 8k wasnít cutting it.

    ColecoVision could have survived, if Coleco didnít bankrupt themselves by investing in the Adam computer.
  18. You could say that about a lot of these consoles,...

    You could say that about a lot of these consoles, and some of the old 8-bit computers. There's a homebrew 2600 version of Pac-Man that is way beyond the version that the Intellivison got. And C-64,...

    4 is the minimum, and I was mistaken: It's up to 23 cycles (not 26) to complete a single instruction.

    The Z80 uses 26 cycles. Still, either Mattel was looking at ease of use by going with the Z80 in Aquarius, or they just thought that it was a better CPU.

    The Z80 was built to compete with Intel's 8080 and perform more efficeintly, which it did. While the CPU in the Intellivision was touted as 16-bit, but it only used a 10-bit register, with 6 bits in...

    The chip was around since the early 70's. I can't imagine that it can do as much in 1 cycle, as an 8-bit CPU that can do 3 cycles in that same time frame.

    It also supports higher screen resolutions and starts at 320x240.

    Iíve seen the CDTV, and if did FMV on-par with the 32-bit consoles.

    Most of the sound and music sounds like itís coming right from the Amiga sound chip. It doesnít even sound like itís coming from the CD.
