Memorex VIS

Memorex Vis

What does Tandy/Radioshack, and Microsoft and Memorex all have in common? Well they all played a role in putting out this little turd of a system. With that said, I bought one of these little quirks off of Ebay a while back for around $120.00. It came complete with 31 CD's, the unit and the manual. It is around the going price of this little turd of a system. What can be said of this lesser known system? Well for starters this system was laser focused on educating 8 year olds all the crap which should be taught in school. It has only 2 cool games and I say that light heartedly. The Golfing game "Links", (which microsoft has rights to) and sherlock holmes. Its elementary my dear Watson, that this system is a little turd.h One of the cool things about this system is that it used a microsoft version of the OS to run it. Another cool item is that it used wireless controllers. Another cool thing is that it taught you crap that you should have learned in 3rd grade. Anyone who wants to bone up on their subjects before taking their SAT, (or GED if your an idiot) then buy this unit and all the plethora of games. Let me give you a listing of the games for your enjoyment:
