The ColecoVision
The ColecoVision was a console produced by Coleco in 1982, before being discontinued in 1984 due in part to the USA video game crash of 1983. Notably, it provided gamers with experiences very much alike the arcade versions of games, as well as having Donkey Kong as a pack-in title to showcase this. It uses very similar hardware to the SG-1000. Indeed, a clone of the SG-1000 known as the Dina 2-in-1 (sold in the United States as the Telegames Personal Arcade) had support for both SG-1000 and ColecoVision games, though compatibility with the latter is spotty due to the lack of an expansion module interface or a second numeric keypad, rendering two-player ColecoVision games unplayable.
