Hmmm.

They will be paying developers to make games for the Amico. There will be 0 financial risk for developers as accepted pitches will be funded by Intellivision (costs will from future royalties).


Nah!

Pros
-------
Dedicated 2d hardware
Aimed and retroheads and indie devs
Back catalogue of Intellivision games
Ported/emulated other retro games
Company owned by ex-employees, is isn't 'not-Atari'

Cons
--------
The controller uses a touch screen! What the hell!! Why have virtual buttons and a REAL console???!!! You NEED to know where your finger are!!!
Won't appeal to ANYONE

If the thing had real controllers it would appeal to me...though still sounds a bit too pricey

When you say real controllers, do you mean like an XBox One/PS4 or like the original Intellivision? I ask because the original intellivision controllers were absolute shit. Worst controllers I've ever used. And I owned an Atari Jaguar too!

Well, that's the thing, if they've kept the disc, I hope they've implemented it better. However, I don't think many of the original games actually used it effectively so an analogue stick or d-pad would be fine. As for using a touch screen, again, absolutely stupid idea. I can see how they were thinking, but it leaves absolutely nothing for coders to work with, it'll be worse than the ouya "our controller is crap but don't worry, you can sync a ps3/xbox controller and use that instead!"

Even a shart of a physical controller would be better than a non-tactile touchscreen slab.
