APF M1000 / MP1000
The APF M1000 was released in 1978. It's a Video game system cart based, comes with 2 non-detachables joysticks with a numeric keypad on each ones (look likes a mini-calculator with a joystick), has "Reset" & "Power" buttons on the unit. Only could be played on a Color TV only. This system seems to have been the pack-in unit with Imagination Machine. The APF MP1000 was released in 1978. This system is basically the same as the M1000 model and both syste...
SOUNDIC SD-290 Programmable Colour Video Game
Though different in shape, the Soundic SD-290 is internaly the same system as the Rollet Video-Color, the Hanimex HMG-7900 and the Soundicvision SD-200. This SD-290 model was sold worldwide through different brands (in France for example by ITMC and JouéClub)... All these systems were surely produced by Soundic in Hong-Kong as they have code-names like "SD-2xx" (where SD would mea...
ATARI  Stunt Cycle (model SC-450)
The following description comes from www.atariHQ.com website, especially the Stunt Cycle dedicated page : "Considered by many collectors as the coolest of the dedicated (non-cartridge) Atari home consoles, Stunt Cycle allowed aspiring Evel Knievel wannabes the joy of performing knarly stunts -- without the risk of breaking one's neck. Tons of tricks to pull off he...
VICTOR V-Saturn
This version of the Saturn was produced by Victor (better known in the U.S. and Europe as JVC) under licence from Sega. It is functionaly identicle to the Sega version of the console, the only change is a different splash screen when the console is switched on. There are two different versions of the V-Saturn: V-Saturn (RG-JX1): This is the first version, released on November 22nd 1994. The top half is grey and the bottom half is black. It has oval bu...
SAMSUNG Saturn
This version of the Saturn was produced by Samsung under licence from Sega exclusively for the Korean market. Unusually for the Saturn there seems to only one version of this particular console (SPC-ST2). It features a stange mix of components from the different versions of the Saturn available elswhere. The case is of the early oval buttoned type but uses the motherboard from the newer round buttoned type, resulting in some strange characteristics. For ...
HANIMEX  SD 070 Colour (programmable TV-game console)
This is a typical system using catridges based on the different chipsets developped by General Instruments in the late 70s. Each GI chips was able to generate several games, ball games for a start, then later car racing, motorcycle, submarines, tanks and shooting games. The system has two detachable controllers with one analog joystick and one fire button each. The control panel is composed of 10 buttons to select the different games offered by each cartridge (10 being the maximum). Difficult...
SEGA SG-1000 Mark II
Very similar to the SG-1000, the SG-1000 Mark II was just a minor update consisting mainly of cosmetic changes. The case was redesigned and the joysticks of the Mark I were replaced by joypads which could be stored in built-in holders located on either side of the console. There was also built-in port where a keyboard could be attached, effectively turning the console into a computer. However, the Mark II was still outsold by it's computer counterpart, t...
SNK Neo Geo Pocket Color
Following the surprise withdrawal of the Neo Geo Pocket, SNK immediately launched the Neo Geo Pocket Color (NGPC). The NGPC was available in six different colours. Internally the hardware was almost identical to the earlier Neo Geo Pocket, but now featured a colour display. Again SNK released ports of their arcade games, but the most notable game must surely be Sonic The Hedgehog - Pocket Adventure, which was the first ever Sonic game to be released...
SNK Neo Geo Pocket
Released towards the end of 1998 in Japan, the Neo Geo Pocket was yet another challenger to Nintendo's Game Boy. The Neo Geo Pocket had great battery life (even the Pocket Color managed around 40 hours from just two batteries!), an area where so many Game Boy competitors had failed, and a number of SNK's popular arcade games appeared on the system. But the sales figures were lower than SNK were expecting and the machine was discontinued after just a few months, only to be immediately rep...
COMMODORE  Amiga CD32
In a last ditch attempt to get a foothold in the lucrative console market Commodore launched the Amiga CD32. After their previous effort with the C64 GS failed and the strange decision to advertise the Amiga 600 as a games machine that could be used as a computer it was vital that the CD32 succeeded. The CD32 is notable for being the first 32 bit CD-ROM based console ever released (the Pla...

STELLAR ELECTRONIQUE Combat lunaire
A weird and rare french system, built by Stellar Electronique from Grasse, France. The games are two variation of the classic Tank Battle.Everything on this system have been designed in order to reduce the costs. No joysticks or paddles, just some buttons built-in the console. The case is made of two thermoformed plastic sheets, just stuck with hot glue. The board itself is hot-glued on the lower half of the case ! No screw or bolt were used to built this cheap console, and all the wires and com...
NINTENDO Super Famicom
Nintendo's follow up the NES arrived 1990. Bundled with the classic Super Mario World the console proved an instant hit in Japan, selling out within hours and going on to outsell Sega's Mega Drive. Between them the Super Famicom and SNES acheived combined sales of almost 50 million units world-wide. With well over 750 games released, owners certainly had plenty of choice. One of...
ATARI  Jaguar
In the early '90s Atari was approached by a company called Flair Technology. They claimed that they could design a new console that would be better than the SNES and Mega Drive. Atari were so impressed that they provided funding for a new company called Flair II. The newly formed company set about designing two new machines, the 32 bit Panther and the 64 bit Jaguar. After cancelling the Panther project, Atari contracted...
COLECO  Telstar Arcade
The Telstar Arcade is maybe one of the most interesting systems made by Coleco, and also the most advanced PONG system released in America, although it played non-PONG games. Made in a triangular case, the system could play three types of games, each being played on one of the three sides of the case. Obviously, the first side allowed playing PONG games (TENNIS and the like), and the second side allowed playing target shooting games. Nothing very different from most other systems, except the ...
ATARI  VCS 2600
A new generation of games was born in the summer of 1977, a new concept revolutionizing leisure will let small leading and foreseeing companies make billions of dollars. Although the Atari VCS is not the first video game console ever, it will become a star while beginning in November of 1977. Millions of young players will hold it as mankind’s best invention ever. The first console idea was developed in 1975 by Atari and Warner Bros, its parent company. Initially the console was set to c...
SONY  PlayStation
After Sony and Nintendo's collaboration on the Super CD-ROM came to an end, Sony continued their research and decided to make a stand alone console. A deal was reached with Nintendo to allow the Play Station (as it was called then) to play SNES cartridges. This feature was dropped from the final design, and the name changed to PlayStation. A powerful machine, the PlayStation featured 3D graphics capabilities which at the time were remarkable. Games like ...

MAGNAVOX Odyssey
The Magnavox Odyssey was the first home video game system, invented by Ralph Baer, who started work on it as early as 1967. It was then launched in 1972 at the end of which over 100,000 units were sold. This system is very basic, having no CPU, score mechanism, colour or sound. In fact there were only 40 diodes and 40 transistors inside. Six cartridges could be used to play up to 12 games - sometimes the same cartridges being used more than once to play different games. The large number of ga...
CCE  Supergame VG 3000
This brazilian system is a clone of the Atari 2600. It is the follow-up of the successful CCE Supergame VG-2800, but more compact. Both controllers (joystick + fire button) are hardwired to the console, and a DB9 connector is available for an optional controller (paddle?) There are only two buttons on the console itself (START & RESET) and an ON/OFF switch. __________________ Thanks to Ricardo Saucedo for info ...
SEGA Wondermega
The Wondermega was released in 1992 as a joint development by Sega and JVC. It is similar to the Multi-Mega, being a combination of a Mega Drive and Mega CD, but with the added ability to function as a karaoke machine and improved sound thanks to JVC's new DSP. The system shipped with four karaoke programs and a compilation CD of four games. Two microphones can be connected to the system so users can sing along with CDs, or, thanks to a button on the machine...

ATARI  Jaguar
No claim was ever made by Atari that the system was completely 64 bits across. This was the big contention that had people complaining about the ''bitness'' of the machine. It had the OPL((Object Processor Logic) not the POP) and the Blitter Chip, which were fully 64 bits across and used the fully 64 bit data bus of the system. The GPU core was a 32 bit RISC processor as was the DSP core, neither of which had any reason to be 64 bits wide. The idea was to use the GPU core to command the 64 bit parts. Unfortunately all too many developers used the 16 68k processor and choke the daylights out of the performance, hence the 16 bit looking games for the most part. The power was certainly there but the tools and the support were not. I believe there were at least 70 games plus not to mention numerous homebrews...which are still being made today.
