While searching for some tapes in my basement, I saw a box with a game system in it. Thinking it was my old Sega Genesis, I quickly pulled it out and it said Celeco Vision. I looked up and it's an 1982 game console. I wasn't around when it came out but I know there are members here who played it or at least were around when it was released.

how much would it probably be worth now?

    If i had the extra cash i would buy it. I had one and they were awesome when they came out. The graphics and game play were top of the line for that period in time. It kicked Atari's ass. The games to have were Frogger, Donkey Kong and Donkey Kong Jr.

      I still have mine in the attic. I just need a new RF converter for it. I think it still works. I still have the ADAM computer with it.

        I always thought it did too! When I got bored of the 2600, I had something to step up next to for my time! At least the sprites were more convincingly like the arcade than what was capable on the Atari.

          Colecovision was awesome, but mine broked down recently. I'm just going to get a new one.

            Really, what we had 25 years ago just impresses me sometimes as I shake my head in disbelief at the games of today!

              ColecoVision kicks major ass. THE BEST arcade translations, back then, were on the CV.

              Except for Smurf's Adventure - stay far away from the Smurfs.... ICK!!

                A game that made no sense, and I kept dying on that fence or ledge! It was all about how to license a hot property. Still, they've been making Smurf video games every now and then for most systems.

                  I fully agree with that. The games today don't impress me whatsoever. It's just boring. Those days of going to the arcade are long gone. :(

                    Really, it's hard to see people get all worked up over the latest stuff since it's too engaging and lengthly as far as I'm concerned (mainly for the consoles). There was a time when it seemed like it didn't matter how long you played a game as long as there was that moment of you losing and deciding whether to spend another quarter or not and try again.
