About Intellivision Amico
Following a sold-out Founders Edition program, the VIP Edition pre-order program for the groundbreaking Amico system starts March 31, 2020. Fans who take advantage of the pre-order will gain access to the Graphite Black and Glacier White consoles for the first time as well as a second chance to secure the Vintage Woodgrain model. Two wireless Bluetooth, color touchscreen controllers and six installed games come with each console. Also included in the VIP Edition program are a $25 RFID Amico digital game store gift card, a 25% off online merchandise store discount code, a lenticular Running Man trading card signed by Tommy Tallarico, and three digital soundtrack albums including “Earthworm Jim Anthology.” With a $100 USD refundable deposit, the pre-order bundle is $249 USD for Graphite Black or Glacier White and $279 USD for Vintage Woodgrain.
“Given the current market conditions, we understand it may be difficult to find entertainment products later this year and we want to give our most loyal followers an invitation to secure their very own Amico.”Tommy Tallarico, Intellivision CEO and Amico creator
