Frequently Ask Questions (FAQs)
- What is your target price?
- Isn’t it expensive for a ColecoVision console?
Answer: While we understand it may not be for everyone out there, we also think there’s more than enough ColecoVision™ fans out there willing to make a project like this to happen. Being in the community for more than 10 years now, CollectorVision knows the potential and need for a console like this to happen! Not to mention how poor and unreliable the original ColecoVision™ console is! It would most likely cost you about $300 to get similar results to our console, and that doesn’t even make your system 100% reliable and doesn’t include all the features we’re including. So no contest here!
- Will it come with any new controller(s)?
Answer: No, we prefer to focus first and foremost on the console itself and make it completely right. Although the console is already compatible with original ColecoVision™ controllers and any DB-9 Controllers out there. It even support SNES controllers, including the NTT Data controller!
- Are you ever going to make a new controller available?
Answer: Definitely! We are going to start designing a brand new comfortable & reliable controller as soon as the console is available.
