The Mattel Intellivision is a second generation (1976–1992) home video game console developed and distributed by Mattel Electronics. It was released in summer 1979 in North America at a retail price of $299. The console was later released in Europe (1981), South America (1982), and Japan (1982). The Intellivision was the first home console to use a tile based playfield and was the first game console to provide real-time human voices in the middle of gameplay, courtesy of the IntelliVoice module. The console was discontinued in early-1990.

“The Intellivision was launched in very late 1979 by Mattel. Compared to its rival, the Atari 2600, the Intellivision featured better graphics and sound, though still sold in fewer numbers. Mattel sold their video game division to investors, that formed a new company INTV Corporation. The Intellivision was discontinued in 1990.
In 2018, a new company was formed by Tommy Tallarico, to relaunch a modern successor to the Intellivision.
