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.
