Generation Second generation
Release date 1982
Discontinued 1985
Predecessor Telstar series

The ColecoVision was the second-generation video game console produced by Coleco in 1982, before being discontinued in 1984 partly due to the ongoing crash in North America at the time. Notably, it provided gamers with experiences very much like the arcade versions of games, as well as having Donkey Kong as a pack-in title to showcase this, although the Atari 2600 and Intellivision could do the same with the respected hardware. It shares largely the same underpinnings with 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.
