The Mattel Intellivision

In 1980 Mattel released their answer to the Atari 2600: the Intellivision. The Intellivision was technically superior in many respects. It had better graphics than the Atari (although less colors), and later on Mattel added a voice synthesis module. But it didn't have many of the arcade licenses that Atari had, nor was it as cheap, and, as always, it came second (the first out always seems to have the advantage - unless the second system is made by Nintendo...).
