Expert console designers making Intellivision Amico, a 2D gaming platform for everyone

Tommy Tallarico (formerly of G4TV fame, music producer behind Video Games Live concerts, Metroid Prime, and currently President of Intellivision), has teamed up with creators who worked on the Nintendo Wii and Nintendo DS to produce a brand new system with a totally different approach to gaming. While the console currently known as Intellivision Amico will not attempt to compete with PS4 and Xbox, it will instead forge out its own path co-existing alongside the current console market.

At first glance, this could seem like another Kickstarter project waiting to disappoint folks like Ouya or Atari VCS. The reality couldn’t be farther from the truth. There’s no Kickstarter involved. Some of Intellivision’s team members include the minds behind cloud gaming, the marketing team for Wii Sports, developers of Metal Gear Solid, and more. Real developers are putting hard work into bringing a very unique and interesting vision to life.

Amico, which means “friend” in Italian, is a new 2D console that will release in 2020 with major hardware and software development behind it, numbering in the tens of millions, by industry veterans who know what they’re doing. With a keen eye for high quality games, a unique hardware setup at an affordable price range, and a totally different approach to the industry, Amico stands a real chance at being something special.

CoolRom.com Forced Removal of Nintendo Roms due to Copyrights

zsnes-emulator-set-keys

If you grew up around the 90’s then you have definitely either heard of or played a Super Nintendo, Nintendo 64, or the Nintendo Entertainment System ( NES for short). Well, we all know that these were some of the best consoles of our youth but after some years production was ceased and being able to play these great consoles became harder and harder. With the evolution of the PC came the creation of the emulator, and for those of you who have never heard of an emulator, it’s a downloadable PC program which lets players interact with many video games for retro consoles on their PC. Yes that is correct, emulators allow you to do just that on your PC, and not just that anymore, now emulators are moving to mobile phones and tablets. But then why the post headline?

One of the most popular Emulation and Rom sites Coolrom.com which has been hosting ROM and Emulator downloads for years has just recently been forced to remove all Nintendo ROMs from their website due to Copyright violation. Assuming this is Nintendo’s doing, Coolrom.com will no longer have Nintendo ROMs available. Although Coolrom.com is one of the first websites (from my knowledge) to be struck with a copyright violation at least in recent years, other sites may have similar experiences soon follow. What does it all mean though? Is Nintendo actually going to start cracking down on ROM hosting sites for no apparent reason or do they have bigger plans?

Could the New 3DS XL end up making way for Nintendo to sell their own retro games again which are currently unavailable thanks to 1st party emulation behind the curtain? Will Nintendo make use of their new patent for streaming emulated retro games from their copyright library and sell some of those on smartphones soon?

For now we can only wonder. Comment below on what you think of this. Are you glad this is being done or enraged as a retro gamer?
