John Carlsen Interview, His Career and the RETRO VGS

This is a special opportunity to discuss what transpired during an integral part of the development of the RETRO Video Game System (now known as the Coleco Chameleon) by RETRO Video Game Systems Inc. It is clear that Mike Kennedy is the primary owner, as far as we know, of RETRO Video Game Systems Inc, […]

Coleco Chameleon Prototype #3 Proven Fake by Community of Retro Gaming Sleuths

Okay, this is getting a little long in the tooth.  The Coleco Chameleon as we know it now started life, publicly, about a year ago.  During the last six months we have seen the team behind this console go from no prototype to now their third “prototype”.  I put prototype in quotation marks because each […]

Coleco Chameleon Kickstarter No Starts, RETRO Video Games Systems Inc Produces More Smoke and Mirrors

Friday February 26th 2016 was promoted for more than two weeks as being the day that the Coleco Chameleon console would be making its Kickstarter debut.  That day has come and is now gone and we only have the announcement that there is NOT going to be a Kickstarter for the Coleco Chameleon to show.  […]

Coleco Chameleon at New York Toy Fair – SNES Mini Under Glass?

The Coleco Chameleon is reportedly a console that has had a storied development over the last 13 months.  This Friday, February 26th, RETRO Video Game Systems Inc – the company behind the Coleco Chameleon, will be launching a Kickstarter campaign.  Reportedly, RVGS Inc will be looking for a minimum of $400,000 to $500,000 to even […]

Coleco Chameleon Kickstarter Reward Tiers Announced (Updating)

Crowdfunding services can bring out the unique projects- those that would probably never see the light of day otherwise.  We see this with potential movie producers, game developers, musicians and even gaming consoles.  The Coleco Chameleon is an attempt to launch a new video game console that is allegedly pointed at the “retro” community as […]

Coleco Chameleon to Package Custom USB Controllers with ColecoVision and Intellivision Compilation Carts

The Coleco Chameleon will apparently be releasing ColecoVision and Intellivision compilation carts with custom USB controllers.  This answers a question that many have had about the future of this platform.  Supporting ColecoVision and Intellivision games has been repeatedly mentioned by the management team of the Chameleon.  Apparently, early on only compilation carts for ColecoVision and […]

Coleco Chameleon Prototype Shown at Closed to Public New York Toy Fair, Kickstarter Date Announced

The RETRO Video Game Systems team has been on a roller coaster ride since the very first announcement of their intent to launch a console.  Formerly known as the RETRO Video Game System, now after acquiring a license to use the name “Coleco” they have renamed it the Coleco Chameleon.  Earlier today, at the New […]

More Trouble with Coleco Chameleon Surfaces, Revisionist History Spotted

This is a tough article to write.  To this point, I have been unbiased as possible on my views of the RETRO Video Game System, now the Coleco Chameleon.  I am doing my best to keep it that way because articles from me, as one of the owners of RGM, are considered “RGM word”.  Everyone […]

RETRO Video Game System Becomes Coleco Chameleon Console

In my other article I detail the current Coleco naming cluster and this new Coleco Chameleon console.  Basically, the Coleco that is licensing out the name is Coleco Holdings, not the same company that launched the ColecoVision in the 1980’s.  No, this is a new company that is a subsidiary of River West Brands.  Anyhow, […]

Coleco Chameleon, Coleco Holdings and the Real Coleco

I have covered the development of the RETRO Video Game System for quite a while.  I interviewed the former team that were running things.  I spent over 20 hours transcribing that interview into text for those that prefer to copy/paste when sharing rather than share time stamps in an audio file.  They had a failed […]
