Intellivision, an Intellivoice and 41 games

The Intellivision is a video game console released by Mattel in 1979. In 1983 Mattel introduced a new peripheral innovative for the time: Intellivoice, a voice synthesis device which produced speech when used with certain games, most of which would not work without the add-on component.

Renowned as the first 16-bit game console and the first system to feature downloadable games through "PlayCable", a device that allowed the downloading of Intellivision games via cable TV.

Luckily for us, such a configuration of retro loveliness has shown up on ebay
