Abstract: An interactive video game-television system wherein video game cartridge information is accessed in response to encoded signals transmitted with NTSC television signals. The encoded signals are decoded and provided to access the video game system which outputs an RGB video game signal. The RGB video game signal is synchronized by the synchronization data from the television signal and converted to an NTSC video game signal which is selectively displayed with the NTSC television signal. User interaction with the NTSC video game signal by input at a remote or wired hand controller is provided to the video game system for interacting with the NTSC video game signal.
