Video 3000

One more pong from the famous German manufacturer. This one has no paddles but only two control knobs built-in the system. The case is the same as the one used for the 2800, but compared to that one, two knobs and many options are missing.

Well, at least, this system includes a lightgun option. In fact, it's a 2400-like system with the shooting games of the AY-3-8500 chipset implemented.

It was designed to be sold worldwide as there are no text but only logical pictograms.

There is also a knob on the upper left used to adjust the TV output channel, or at least something to stabilize the output signal..

There was another "special feature" (uh, a bug, that is...): if you moved the game selector knob *between* any two of the games, a Football game appeared, where the left player had 3 paddles on the screen instead of only two... This bug which can be experienced on many pong systems is explained by specialist David Winter on the Magiclick Teleclick page.

There is also a model 3001 wich has a color display. Case variations and label variations ("Interton" or "Interton Video") can be found.
