New Colecovision?

The CollectorVision Phoenix video game system looks very interesting. FPGA console, 100% compatible.

    I love the cool factor, but as a previous owner of a colecovision from back in the day, I must point out the following:

    - I HATED the mandatory 30 second splash screen on the games.

    - I quickly got bored of my 20 games so I sold the whole system and all games to a high school friend for enough money to buy a voice synthesis module for my TRS-80 Color Computer.

    I trolled the whole town by phoning people with a robot voice and ordering pizza, or making announcements that the fart police were on their way due to a reported gas leak.
