Yes, indeed. Now,I might be the oldest fella on this site, being 48 and having the Intellivision as my first console back in 1979. But I still have my memories. Fond memories,
yes *cough cough* you whippersnappers. Back when we had to imagine that some blocky sprite was Wayne Gretzky or Darth Vader.

Whyyyyyyy, we used to make our own butter and Doritos, dagnabbit.

So anyways this chap found a brochure in his daddy's stuff and posted it at Atari Age.

Intellivison 3?? Wow. And must say it was a beauty. Clean lines, futuristic. Too bad it never made the light of day.eh??

This is cool. You can read a conversation Brandon Sheffield and I had with Don Daglow about this here: http://www.gamasutra.com/view/news/112971/From_Intellivision_To_Today_Talking_To_Don_Daglow.php (it's accidentally referred to as an Intellivision IV though)

Wow...great read, young man. I like the Amiga connection, that being such an iconic machine. It's good you guys got a lot of info out of Don and preserved this information. It's precarious data based on memories more than paper. And like the old timers discussing the early days of rock n roll or TV, the beginning of video games have tons of fun anecdotes. Seems like a nice guy, too.

If there was any way to make a living at it, I'd basically just do interviews like that for the rest of my life.
