The ColecoVision is a console from the second generation of video game consoles. The console was launched in August 1982 in North America followed by a launch in Europe in July 1983. The ColecoVision was known for its impressive graphics and sound capabilities relative to its competitors and offered arcade-like experiences in the comfort of players' homes. Three expansion modules were created for it. Expansion Module #1 allowed playing of Atari 2600 games and controllers (which resulted in a lawsuit), Expansion Module #2 is a steering wheel and gas pedal combo, and Expansion Module #3 converts the ColecoVision into a Coleco ADAM computer with a keyboard, cassette drive, 64KB of RAM, and a printer. Coleco ended support of the ColecoVision by the end of 1985, and left the video game market entirely. A large homebrew scene for the console began to emerge during the late 1990s and early 2000s, with the console seeing a large number of MSX and SG-1000 ports and even a new expansion module, the Super Game Module.
