The Vectrex is an 8-bit video game console. It was licensed and distributed first by General Consumer Electric.It was released in November 1982 at a retail price of $199. As the video game market declined and then crashed, the Vectrex exited the market in early 1984.
Unlike other video game consoles, which connected to televisions, the Vectrex has an integrated vector monitor which displays vector graphics. The monochrome Vectrex uses screen overlays to give the illusion of color. At the time, many of the most popular arcade games used vector displays, and GCE was looking to set themselves apart from the pack by selling high-quality versions of games such as Space Wars and Armor Attack.
Vectrex comes with a built in game, the Asteroids-like Minestorm. Two peripherals were also available for the Vectrex, a light pen and a 3D imager.
Western Technologies/Smith Engineering briefly considered designing a handheld version of the device in 1988. However, with the upcoming release of the Nintendo Game Boy made such a project too risky.
I like the games for this, although I wonder how erll it is made. You might not want to pull on the controlls much as the might not be the best at the other end of the lead, so you might want to find a way of having it a little over your head so you see the screen fully.
