Agreed, Walter Ives comments are quite interesting to read.  Quite the window to a business world that was happening while I was a wee child.   I'm worried CMART might track down Walter and box him up to store him in his secret underground lair.

Think Woody from Toy Story 2, not Kathy Bates and James Cain from Misery.


BSRSteve and the other guys we met in person are still running around. So I have hope for Mr Ives.

The timing doesn't support that narrative: The first VCS units hit store shelves in August of 1977, Intellivision development was ordered stopped the next month because National pulled out, the project was resurrected in November because GI's Lew Solomon spoke with Mattel's Ray Wagner.



Dear Mr. Ives.


Thank You very much for this information.

Be sure to enrich and tweak various points of this incredible story.
