You could start off by running off 500 machines at once and if the demand was high enough 10,000 or more machines could be sold. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

OK, just for the sake of argument...10,000... Each unit costs $100 to produce (hardware, box printing, manuals, etc.)...you got $1 million to invest? Bank loan? Ummm...well, I want to re-create a modern version of a 30-year-old video game console...DENIED... Plus you would be competing for sales & shelf space with Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo.----- Original Message ----- From: shonmccallum at juno.com To: eduardo at opcodegames.com Cc: jblenkle at comcast.net ; coladam at adamcon.org Sent: Thursday, October 25, 2012 12:03 PMSubject: Re: [Coladam] Call the new Adam Colecovision II
Perhaps Walmart would require 100,000 units, however 10,000 units would be ideal for Amazon , EBAY, and some small retail stores.

While I share your enthusiasm for all things ADAM/ColecoVision, I don't
think Wal-Mart would give you the time of day unless you could supply them
with several 100,000 units and guarantee them a substantial flow of software
for the machine. The kind of money needed to produce all this would kill the
project before it started.
