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 JouÚClub)... 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...

SEGA Mega Drive
The Mega Drive launched in 1988 in Japan. Europe had to wait two whole years before they would get the machine. Designed as the replacement for the 8 bit Master System, it originally competed against other 8 bit systems, namely the Famicom/NES and PC Engine/TurboGrafx. The Mega Drive had mixed fortunes. In Japan the console was out sold...
SEGA Genesis 3
Manufactured by Majesco under license by Sega, the Genesis 3 was a budget release of the Genesis hardware. Appearing in the United States in 1998, it was much smaller than previous versions and shipped with the six button controller included. However, the Genesis 3 lacked the expansion port of the older models making it incompatible with the Sega CD add-ons. It was also incompatible with the 32X. A number of games were also re-released by Majesco, who ...
COLECO  Gemini
The Coleco Gemini, not to be confused with the Telstar Gemini system released by the same manufacturer in 1978, is a clone of the Atari VCS 2600. It offers the exact same functionalities as the Atari system. Six switches : color/b&w display, on/off, left player difficulty A/B, right player difficulty A/B, Game Select and Reset. Apart from the plastic case, only the controllers differ from the original system. Colec...
BALLY Astrocade
In September 1977, Bally, the famous pinball tables manufacturer, announced shortly after the Atari 2600, the Bally Professional Arcade. The first versions were shipped in early 1978 for $299. This video game system featured a Z80 processor, three built-in games (Gunfight, Checkmate, Scribbler), a calculator with numeric keypad and up to four controllers that were a unique combination of joystick and paddle, which resembled the grip of a revolver. Furthermore, a BASIC cartridge gav...
SIERA G7000
Siera Electronics is a manufacturer of electronic and audio equipment that was founded in the Netherlands but is now based in Belgium (source : The Odyssey▓ Homepage) . Siera distributed Videopac systems and games (where ? Belgium?) under its own company name. The Siera G7000 is only a Philips Videopac G7000 rebadged with the Siera logo. Siera also released the Philips Videopac...
TELENG Colourstars
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. A big numbered dial in the middle of the control panel is used to select the different games offered by each cartridge (10 being the ...
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...
EPOCH TV Baseball
The Epoch TV Baseball is an early japanese video-game released in 1978. It is a stand-alone system, as it can play only one game: baseball! Indeed, baseball has always been very popular in Japan. It was logic that it inspired first videogames there. The game can be played by two players, one launching the ball and the other manipulating the bat. There is a detachable controller with only one fire button, and all the other controls are on the system itself. It is interesting to note that...
YENO Super Cassette Vision
This nice system was built in Japan by EPOCH and sold in europe (mostly and maybe only in France, where it was distributed by the well known pong seller ITMC) under the YENO brand. Successor of the Cassette Vision (1981) and Cassette Vision Jr (1983), units that never hit the european market, the Super Cassette Vision system was an unsuccessful competitor of the Nintendo Famicom in Japan. In France, on the other hand, Yeno had the opportunity to se...
COLECO  Colecovision
After the success of their Telstar pong systems in the late 70's, Coleco decided to re-enter the videogame market, inspired by the success of cartridge based systems like the Atari VCS and Mattel Intellivision. As the Colecovision was released later than these competitors, it was possible for the Coleco engineers to put more hardware in the box while keeping the cost acceptable. The Colecovision is thus powered by a ...

SEGA Dreamcast
Now the DC was definately the underdog of it''s era, and it''s sad to have to admit it given it was (in reality) a bloody fine bit of kit. I can even recall, when these were put on sale in Electronics Boutique stores, a few days earlier helping to create some pre-order promo flyers using scanned in images from a Sega catalog, via a parallel scanner, and trying to carve an isolated image using Photoshop on a 286 PC with nowhere near enough memory and the many crashes that involved.

Mind you, i did end up owning one (along with a copy of every official, and some promotional copies of never-released titles), and damn near every accessory whilst it was still being retailed (including that rare Ethernet addon which i never actually got to use). I gifted the set to a collector a few years ago, but the second fishguts console (used for spares) eventually became a case for various different SBC''s (and i am talking way earlier stuff then the PI) and even the high-capacity optical drive got reused. A good end story to a much missed proof that Win CE was actually useful for more than PDA type application and data collection devices.

ATARI  Video Pinball (Model C-380)
Search Amazon for a RCA to F-Type adapter. You can get either male or female. Also get a good coax cable if you don''t have one.

I Still have one in my loft. Plus a load of games for it. I also have a service manual by RADOFIN. Dated 20 August 1979.

COMMODORE  C64 GS (Games System)
This wouldn''t have been a terrible idea if, one, the cartridge games never required keyboard commands, and two, if it would have come out in 1985 or 6, instead of 1990...

CASIO  PV-1000
The design of the console is pretty ahead of it''s time. I feel like this could have easily come out 10 years later and looked fresh.
