Objects in the ebay picture may be larger than they appear

The aforementioned Intellivision arrived today, and my kids seemed impressed when I explained that this console wasĀ almost as old as me. My two-year old enjoyed putting cartridges in it and repeatedly bringing me the manuals, because he’s in that age where he really likes to bring people stuff.

Anyway, the console itself is pretty slick looking. I can’t test it out until I get back to my office where I have the appropriate cords and a TV, but it’s a nice looking artifact already. I’m surprised how simple it looks on the outside compared to the Atari 2600, and it seems longer and larger than I remembered.

The lot came with seven games, all with their controller overlays — which was a big thing that drew me to this auction.

Can’t wait to try it out!
