I was not that inspired by this before but after watching that video, I am sold.

I think Tommy and his team as doing a good job preparing the market for this console.  Atari isn't doing anything like this for their VCS.

Well, this one is priced correctly for a start, the Atari one is a ridiculous price.

Pricing aside, the issue is they are not doing any demos of any games for the system ON the system itself.  We are now aware of a number of games coming to the Amico, know what they will look like and have a sense of they are all about.  There isn't a single title for the VCS that we've seen on the system or anything else.  It's unfortunate because, for all we know, the system could be very capable.

Here's the latest video about the Amico.  Tommy himself demonstrates how the controllers work with Missile Command...

That's because it is!  I think this is perfect for us retro gamers and for casual gamers.

You guys have way more faith than I do. I just don't see people buying it at that price outside of a very niche market. Hope I'm wrong though, wouldn't be the first time lol.

They've already presold over 10,000 units.  Hopefully it keeps on selling.

I learned today, the presale is up to 13,000 units now.  That's not bad.
