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 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...
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...
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...
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...

NEC  CoreGrafx
Not a new console, this was simply a re-release of the PC Engine, this time in a black case and with composite AV output....
SEARS Tele-Games Pinball Breakaway (model 99713)
In 1977, a new type of ball and paddle system was launched: Video Pinball. This game also existed in the arcade under the same name, hence the home versions sold by Atari (Video Pinball, model C-380) and Sears (Pinball Breakaway, model 99713), pictured here. There even was a japanese version, the Epoch TV Block. See Atari Video Pinball, model C-380 entry for more info. The only differences are the labels, including g...
The Channel F was the first programmable video game system, having plug-in cartridges containing ROM and microprocessor code rather than dedicated circuits. Not a very popular or entertaining system, it was nonetheless important at the time for having a number of original features which were copied by later more successful systems. Unique to the console is a `hold' button that allowed the player freeze the game and also change either the time, the speed or both during the course of the game,...
NINTENDO Super Nintendo Entertainment System 2
In an attempt to prolong the Super Nintendo's life, Nintendo of America launched the SNES 2 in 1997, similar to what had previously been done with the NES 2. The SNES 2 was only available in the States and Japan, but was never released in Europe. It was smaller and lighter than the original version, lacking the expansion and RF ports of the old model, although the internal hardware remained exactly the same. The decision to ship the SNES 2 with Super Ma...
NEC  PC Engine Duo R
This is essentially the same machine as the PC Engine Duo, but with a redesigned white case and no headphone jack or CD door lock....
Epoch TV-Vader is a japanese stand-alone unit offering four Space-Invaders inspired games built-in the system. It was released in 1980. The white console is quite simple in its design. In the middle of the case are the joystick (only left & right) and one fire button labeled "missile". Left to them is a LEVEL button used to select the game, and on the right is a START button and an ON/OFF power switch. Apparently, the system offers four different games, largely inspired by Space Invaders. ...
PROMOTORS LTD Palladium Game Console
This console is only a prototype designed in 1980 by designer Iain Sinclair for Promotors Ltd based in Hong-Kong. It's unclear if this particular model has ever been produced or not, but chances are not. What is striking is the ressemblance between this prototype and Emerson Arcadia 2001 or Interton VC-4000 compatible systems: two detachable controllers made of a keypad and an analog joystick, several buttons on the c...
Few information is known about this obscure system... It is software compatible with the Interton VC-4000 and "clones". This doesn't mean that it can use the Interton cartridges, as they certainly won't fit, but the internal specs and software are the same. The CPU is the 2650A from Signetics and the Video Controller is the 2636 from Signetics as well. About 40 cartridges has been released for the Interton VC-4000, but we can't tell how many were availabl...
PHILIPS  Tele-Spiel ES-2201
This is one of the first european console. It is almost a pong but as it plays different games (not only pong) available on cartridge, it can be considered a console (the same way as the Odyssey). It was produced by Philips. This is not a pong-in-a-chip system like many later pong systems. When you open it you only find discrete components and a few integrated circuits. There is no game built-in, but the system was sold with a Tennis game cartridge. Four more cartridges were available (Pelota...
COMMODORE  C64 GS (Games System)
The C64 GS (Games System) is basically a C64 motherboard in a simple beige plastic case without a keyboad, serial port and tape interface. Apart from some minor ROM changes the circuitboard inside is exactly a C64. Thus it can play all the C64 cartridges that don't require interaction with the keyboard. Some cartridges were specificaly produced for the C64 GS, but there are a few... These cartridges could also be used with the original C64 or C128 both being equiped with the same cartridge slot....

Ordinateur de Jeu JO7400 (JOPAC)


CONTINENTAL EDISON / SABA Ordinateur Video Jeu JO 1450 (JOPAC)
Kind of looks like an Odyssey 2 that happened to be ran over by a steamroller. I wonder if it''s also compatible with that console''s games as well.

ATARI  Lynx/Lynx II
Easy with the language, sailor.

Chris Weatherley
As a keen collector and fan of this system, I have produced a fair number of video''s about the GX4000. - 25th Anniversary - CPC vs GX4000 Game comparison.

Ahh, my first ever console....the racing game was brilliant......bought for me by my mum and dad xmas 1978, the following year I was lucky enough to get the all singing and all dancing Atari :)

VOLTMACE Database Games-Computer
Awesome. Had this as a nipper in the 80s. Lived near Baldock so might explain why! I remember going to a local games "shop" / voltmace merchant (swear it was someones garage or house extension) and there was always the one shifty database title amongst the vast array of sexier looking atari 2600 games. I wasn''t interested in hearing any "compatibility" nonsence - i just wanted the spiderman game with green goblin on the box (it was packaging perfection ). Were voltmace and all the other UK cart machines 2600 inspired / direct clones anyway?

SEGA Master System II
Never liked the controller for the Master System. The D-pad felt way too imprecise and mushy for my liking, and the buttons just didn''t feel good when you pressed down on them. Thankfully, you can use a regular Genesis controller instead.

Have you played Atari today??? If not, then you should stop what you''re doing right now and fire one of these bad boys up.
