Intellivision Lives!, Now At Gamestop


intellivision_lives Last month, we reported that retro game compilation, Intellivision Lives! for the Nintendo DS, would not be stocked at Gamestop, as the retail chain felt the game wouldn’t appeal to their younger consumer.


The news came via the following message, posted on the game’s Facebook page:


“Our publisher heard today that GameStop will not be selling Intellivision Lives! for DS. They say that the 30-somethings that shop there ;may find it appealing’ but apparently they don’t feel it is for their target (younger) clientele. As soon as we hear, we’ll let you know what decent, upright, quality stores will be carrying it.”


Gamestop seem to have had a change of heart since then, however, as their website currently lists Intellivision Lives! for $14.99. Pre-ordered copies of the game begin shipping tomorrow, on October 27th. You can check out the listing for a complete list of the games that are included on the DS cartridge.
