IRVINE, CA, September 12, 2018 – Intellivision® Entertainment is proud to announce that it will be revealing extensive details about its upcoming new family home video game console at the Portland Retro Gaming Expo on Saturday, October 20th. Intellivision president and industry veteran Tommy Tallarico headlines the show as the keynote address for the largest retro video game convention in the world.

Intellivision Entertainment will also be sponsoring an exclusive Blue Sky Rangers panel consisting of never before heard original Intellivision past management as well as programmers and artists to discuss the revolutionary products and video game industry “firsts” they pioneered. Six of the biggest and brightest stars of the early 80’s era of Intellivision will be together again for the first time. Aside from the keynote address, Mr. Tallarico will also be presenting a separate talk explaining retro game audio creation from the 80’s & 90’s. All three of the Intellivision talks will be streamed LIVE and archived on the Intellivision Entertainment social media pages and website. The first 2,000 convention attendees and the first 500 keynote address attendees will receive an exclusive special limited edition Intellivision lanyard.
Intellivision Entertainment is bringing the concepts of SIMPLE, AFFORDABLE, FAMILY & FUN back into homes across the world with the introduction of their brand new home video game console. The original Intellivision system generated many “firsts” in the video game industry including the first 16-bit gaming machine, the first gaming console to offer digital distribution, the first to bring speech/voice to games, the first to license professional sports leagues and organizations and the first to create and utilize a directional pad (D-Pad) for game controls. Originally released in 1979, due to its popularity it was remarkably retailed across 3 decades and quickly sold millions of units. The new Intellivision system will carry on the company tradition of “firsts” with its new concept, design and approach to gaming.
