Screenshots?[edit]

A screenshot or two of one of the games in action would really benefit this article. Anybody know how we can go about obtaining one? Jeff Silvers 16:31, 25 June 2007 (UTC)

Someone should create emulators of each Color TV Game console, in order to allow anyone to create fresh, JPEG-free images of them. Otherwise, ask someone who has one of them to buy or use something that can take pictures of anything on a television screen that isn't a camera. If you can't find anyone who has one, then try finding one yourself. I saw one on eBay a while ago, but I guarantee you that these kinds of things are difficult to find and buy, not only because they are rare, but they are also expensive. Can they work in America? Yes. Can they work in any of the PAL regions? No. I wish whoever tries to take some screenshots of them a lot of luck. Parrothead1983 (talk) 02:58, 25 January 2009 (UTC)

Color TV Game 6 Limited Run[edit]

"With a limited run of only a few hundred units" is this statement accurate? Most of the other literature I have read on the Color TV Game 6 state that it sold over a million units.

My chief source is: http://www.nintendopedia.org/index.php?title=Color_TV_Game_6

Can anyone confirm or refute this?

AMERICAN RELEASE AND DATE CONFUSION[edit]

THIS ARTICLE DOESNT CLARIFY IF IT WAS A JAPAN ONLY RELEASE. ALSO IN THE LAST PARAGRAPH IT TALKS ABOUT HOW IT DIDNT USE CARTRIDGES AND THEN SAYS 'IT' WAS DISTRIBUTED IN JAPAN IN 1980 AND WAS A PORT OF NINTENDOS ARCADE GAME COMPUTER OTHELLO. WHATS IT? COLOR TV GAME? I THOUGHT THAT WAS RELEASED IN 1977. WHAT THE FUCK? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.188.17.249 (talk) 03:55, 14 October 2007 (UTC)

Computer TV Game, and Color TV Game are two completely different things that's why they have different dates.Rlk89 19:57, 8 November 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Tv-game-6-01.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Tv-game-6-01.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.

Improving article[edit]

This article needs information about what each home console in the Color TV Game series has inside of them. Not just about games, but also what makes the consoles work, like processing units. Also, this article needs a screenshot taken from any game in one of the systems. Parrothead1983 (talk) 02:26, 25 January 2009 (UTC)

Generation[edit]

This console don't use programmable cartridges, so it should be First-generation console, not 2nd. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 84.201.230.230 (talk) 17:27, 14 March 2009 (UTC)

"Block Fever" VS. "Block Breaker"[edit]

Most sources say the official English title of the game is Block Fever (ブロックフィーバー), but someone came to Wikipedia and changed it to "Block Breaker". No one but I noticed it and believe it is incorrect. Parrothead1983 (talk) 06:41, 13 May 2010 (UTC)

Sorry to bring up a 2.5-year-old argument, but we do need a source for this. Technically, it doesn't have an official English title, since both the arcade game and the console were released only in Japan. Block Fever does seem to be the more common translation of the arcade game, but the console is generally referred to with rōmaji transcriptions of various different names.  — TORTOISEWRATH 17:33, 2 December 2012 (UTC)
