GAMING INDUSTRY
LACKS FAMILY OPTIONS

In today’s current market there is no simple, engaging, unified entertainment platform all family members can enjoy equally.

Playing together is a concept that Intellivision and Atari introduced in the early 80’s. The last time we saw family gaming was 15 years ago with the Nintendo Wii, which sold over 100 million units -  the third best selling console of all time. Unfortunately this platform was replaced by mobile oriented gaming, geared towards gaming on the go. 

With a booming market, gaming is a compelling platform for CHANGE, but the industry has become isolating with kids sitting in a dark room with their headphones on; too complex, frustrating casual gamers who have been migrating to more simple mobile games; and highly driven by profit where in-game purchases have now become more than 70% of overall revenue with sophisticated artificial intelligence engines identifying when you are most susceptible to paying yet more money to enhance your game play.

Families need a new gaming option that offers...

Intellivision has the solution. Introducing Amico, an affordable gaming console that’s simple to use and focused on original, non-violent games that will get families and friends playing games together again.
