Specifications and information

CPU: Unknown
Controls: 2 attached joysticks
Games: Cartridges

The Mattel Intellivision was strong competition for the Atari 2600. It featured unique controllers with a circular rocker pad. The controllers accepted thin plastic color overlays that slipped in to cover the buttons and provide specific functions for the game being played. The controllers are permanently attached, and the AC power supply is built-in, making for an uncomplicated unit.

This particular Intellivision is in the original color display box, which shows a gleeful seventies family crowded around the system playing Blackjack in their bell bottoms and polyester.

Here's a shot of the Intellivision's optional Intellivoice voice synthesizer module and its original box:
