EMERSON ARCADIA 2001

 

  

 

This system came out in the early 80s and was made of off the shelf parts. For some reason there seems to be like a gazillion clones for it all over the world. Seems like each country had it's own version of this console. Half the consoles on this site are clones of this system. Some of the games work on other systems, others are incompatible. There's a few good FAQs around, do a google on it and you'll find out. System looks sturdy enough, games seem to be between Atari 2600 and Intellivision in quality. The console only lasted two years and died with the crash in 84, although it's many clones were sold around the world for years afterwards.

So I've finally landed one of these machines, problem is that I've got no games to test it out with, so I can't make any valued opinions on how good it is. Stuff for this system pops up now and then on Ebay so I'm sure it's only a matter of time.
