Oh, having one in a collection is a different story.  :)  They are not easy to find either.  Games that had been programmed for this controller have been hacked to use the standard controller and released by the community so everyone can enjoy them.

It's been a while since anyone has said anything about the ColecoVision.  Here is this blog which should be an interesting read for fans of the system:  Console of the Month (March 2017) – Colecovision

I just got the Colecovision 192-1 for my Coleco from Retro electronik (along with their Vetrex Cart)





http://retroelectronik.com/en/xin1-multigames-cartridge/78-colecovision-192-in-1-multicart-system-3863349509097.html

I quite like changing the games using the dip switches. It feels old school and it feels just like playing a single game.

 I got to play a few games - Gyruss, Star Wars and Defender for the system. I had my Hauppauge HDPVR2 setup and recorded me hitting over 600000 on it. The game plays well if a little easy. The radar doesnt seemt to work and there is no high score but I really enjoyed the game.

That multicart looks great. I'm tempted to get one myself!

Pretty good value for money, but you can't play Pac Man Collection on it! :)

I got it as they had the Vectrex cart pretty cheap too.

The Colecovision doesnt seem to have many options but ebay in the UK. I thought the cart would give me a chance to try before I buy.

I love the system though, shame about the joypads.
