Vectrex is a home game console first released in North America in 1982 and later in Europe and Japan in 1983. Unlike other consoles of the era, the Vectrex included it's own 9" black & white vector monitor and built-in speaker. Similar to many black & white arcade games, games for the Vectrex included unique monitor overlays that could be placed on the screen to simulate color. Sounds were generated by the popular General Instrument AY-3-8912 chip. The included Vectrex Controllers featured an analog joystick along with four buttons. Despite strong initial sales and positive reception, the system was not a success and was discontinued in 1984 (this was largely due to the video game crash of 1983).
