This console sold well, but was haunted by a lack of third-party support. It was originally marketed as a home computer. It was one of the four major home consoles prior to the 1983 videogame market crash. It was the first home videogame console with a full alphanumeric membrane keyboard. It had 8-way joystick controllers. Games could be customized and tailored to a specific user's tastes. Some games blended board games and videogames together. Most games were clones of other popular games. Atari sued Magnavox at one point, to the frustration of Magnavox.
