The Coleco ColecoVision debuted in 1982 with a small library, of what it claimed to be, arcade quality games. The most important of these was Donkey Kong which Coleco had licensed from Nintendo, and came bundled with every ColecoVision. Many credit Donkey Kong as the reason for the ColecoVision's early success, selling more units than Atari and Mattel in 1983. Its major breakthrough, however, was the expansion slot which allowed users to buy expansion modules in order to increase the capabilities of the hardware. The Expansion Module #1, for example, allowed the ColecoVision to play the entire game library of the Atari 2600, resulting in lawsuits from Atari.
