" This is the greatest ColecoVision Video Game system you will ever need! "

ColecoVision FPGA Video Game System...

New ColecoVision console, with cartridge port ?

A reimagining of the greatest arcade quality video game system of all time.

Engineered with an FPGA., but this one has a ColecoVision Cartridge slot.
This new console is focused on the 80's 8bit ColecoVision era.

100% accurate and compatible with all ColecoVision game cartridges!
And since this is an open source will you also be able to play all your Atari 2600 games via SD.
it will later be possible to run game cartridges through a game adapter.

Explore and re-live the 80's arcade quality video game system with no compromises.
This system is flicker free, thanks to F18A graphics support.
Do not try to see this as another product than a ColecoVision at the moment.
Don't support this project if you have negative feelings, choose instead another product.

Audio:

Digital audio via HDMI.
Built in the SEX7289 "Courtney" Wavetable Sound Generator (WSG)
Courtney is a new added custom sound chip which can produce a rich plurality of sounds with minimal intervention of the CPU.
Courtney implements 2 operating modes.

A native mode which features wavetable synthesis, the same sound technology of the Konami SCC, Namco Pac-Man, NEC PC Engine and Waldorf PPG Wave.
And a legacy mode which is 100% compatible with the AY-3-8913.

Courtney’s register-based interface is based on the AY-3-891x series, allowing direct binary-level compatibility with that series, and facilitating the support of the new features to the programmer.

Native mode also adds extended parameter ranges such as full 8-bit noise frequency for more dramatic explosions.
Stereo positioning and a direct DAC mode, allowing clean, single channel 8-bit PCM sample replay without having to combine all 3 channels in a complex manner.

The native mode also allows better lo-fi speech synthesis and digital audio using technologies such as Wyz’s ISR sample replay by employing pure harmonic-free sine waves instead of square waves.

 No Controllers included.
CollectorVision Games prefer to focus first and foremost on the console itself and make it completely right.
The console is already compatible with original ColecoVision controllers, NTT and any DB-9 Controllers out there.
But you will be able to order a cheap NES look-a-like Controller together with the system.

 No Box for the system .
There will not be a box included to store the system in.
This is up to the 3rd. party to make one and earn some money.
For now is this around 400 boxes.

CollectorVision Games understand it may not be for everyone out there, they also think there’s more than enough ColecoVision fans out there willing to make a project like this to happen.
CollectorVision Games knows the potential and need for a console like this to happen.
Not mentionning how poor and unreliable the original ColecoVision console is.
It would most likely going to cost you about $ 300,- to get similar results compared to the CollectorVision Phoenix Video Game System, and that doesn’t even make your system 100% reliable.
