The ColecoVision was the second-generation video game console produced by Coleco in August 1982 before being discontinued in 1984, partly due to the ongoing crash in North America at the time. It retailed for $174.99 and had a Zilog Z80 CPU at 3.58 MHz with 8 KBs of RAM. 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 as 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.
