The ColecoVision was a console released by Coleco in 1982.
The console boasted of having "arcade-quality graphics and sound" at a time when game consoles could barely match the quality of arcade game machines. The console came with Donkey Kong as a pack-in game. The console features an expansion port for expansion and peripherals. Released with a catalog of twelve launch titles, with an additional ten games announced for 1982, approximately 125 titles in total were published as ROM cartridges for the system between 1982 and 1984. Support for the system was dropped following the Video Game Crash of 1983, and also due to the failures the company had with the Adam Family Computer System.
