Telegames was known for supporting not just modern game systems but also classic game systems, after they've been abandoned by its manufacturer. For example, by 1997 Telegames was the Atari Jaguar's only software publisher,[1] and continued to publish for the system up through 1998. Effective September 2004 though, Telegames, Inc. ceased support for all "classic" and "orphaned" video game systems and software in order to support only modern consoles.

Telegames, Inc. today focuses on modern gaming consoles by developing and publishing games for the Nintendo DS handheld game system and Apple's iPad.

Telegames Personal ArcadeEdit

The Telegames Personal Arcade was the US version of the Dina by Bit Corporation. This slim console could play both ColecoVision and SG-1000 cartridges. It came equipped with NES-styled controllers, and even had a built in game called "Meteoric Shower". Since the DINA control pads did not contain the numeric keypad of the actual ColecoVision controller, they were mounted on the unit itself. It also sported a "pause" button that could be used for SG-1000 games.
