GRANDSTAND T.V. Game Model 3000
The Grandstand T.V. Game 3000 is a classic pong system sold in U.K. It can be also found under different other brands worldwide. It's in fact the same model as the T.V. Game Model 2000 but with a colour display (Model 3000 is in black & white). The system itself seems to have been made in Korea. The electronic board is labeled "F'GAMATIC-7600".

MAGNAVOX Odyssey 2000
The Odyssey 2000, released in 1977, is almost an Odyssey 300 with one more game (practice, for one player). In fact, and as opposed to previous Magnavox Odyssey systems (except the Odyssey 300), the Odyssey 2000 uses the famous AY-3-8500 chipset from General Instruments. This chip offers 4 black & white pong games: Tennis, Hockey, squash (here called Smash) and Practice (squash for 1 player)....
MAGNAVOX Odyssey 500
The Odyssey 500 was released in 1976, and was very advanced for that time considering the technology used. It was in fact the only system of its kind. As a matter of fact, the white paddles representing the players were replaced by simple color graphics: two tennis players with their rackets (TENNIS game), two squash players (SMASH & SOCCER?), or two hockey players holding their sticks (HOCKEY). On the control panel, one can find two switches: one to select the playfield (a wall on the left, ...
MAGNAVOX Odyssey 400
In 1976, Magnavox released the Odyssey 400. It played the same games as the Odyssey 200 and used an additional Texas Instruments chip to display digital on-screen scoring (it was the first Odyssey system to display digital on-screen scoring). On-screen scoring was quite well designed. As a matter of fact, the scores were large and were only shown when the ball was lost, and a large 'W' letter was displayed on the winner's side when the games were over. L...
MAGNAVOX Odyssey 300
After both Atari and Magnavox released their first pong systems (Odyssey 100, Odyssey 200, Pong) in 1975, Magnavox continued with the Odyssey 300 in 1976, which was one of the first system to use a single game chip containing the major circuitry of a PONG system. This system was Magnavox' answer to Coleco Telstar, the first game to use the GI A...
ATARI  Ultra Pong Doubles (Model C-402)
Ultra Pong Doubles was the ultimate pong console released by Atari (in 1977). It offers 16 pong games (32 variations) mainly based on original pong and hockey games, for 2 to 4 players! DESCRIPTION The plastic case show only one button which acts a Game Select and Reset. There is also a power on/off switch, but that's all for the interaction. The list of the 16 games along with their screenshots are printed on the case front. On the rear side, one can spot an external power su...

ATARI  SUPER PONG (Model C-140)
The Super PONG (model C-140) is a follow up to the orignal Atari Pong (model C-100). Compared to its brother which could only play one game of pong, Super Pong offers 4 different pong games. Like the C-100, the C-140 is based on an Atari pong-in-a-chip IC (C010073-01) which was revolutionnary for the time. The on-screen scoring as well was a feature scarcely found on other pong systems. Like all first Atari pong systems, the C-140 was also sold by Sear...
ATARI  PONG (Model C-100)
As early as 1974, Atari started to design a home version of PONG, originally proposed by Harold Lee in 1973. The system was designed by three engineers: Harold Lee, Alan Alcorn and Bob Brown. Because Magnavox Odyssey was already being left behind by customers (mostly due to their lack of satisfaction, and also the bad rumor that it would only work with a Magnavox TV set), sellers were not attracted by Atari's PONG game until Sears goes ahead and sells the system under their Tele-Games label f...
INTERTON 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 onl...
GORENJE Geti-3220
Nice pong system from Slovenia. Little is known about it. If offers six classic games (4 pong games + 2 shooting games) and thus must be certainly powered by a AY-3-8500 chipset from General Instruments, like mots other pong systems of that time. All functions are chosen through nice white, green and orange push buttons. Paddle are controlled with two detachable controllers or sliders built-in the console itself. Indeed, the system pictured here use controllers whereas the system shown on ...
RIVA T-800c
The main particularity of this pong system is that it is very very very small! The pads are only 2 x 6 cm. It looks like it had been made for dwarves or very little kid hands. Though this must have been a kind of marketing feature (so small you can take it with you anywhere you want), it also must have reduced the manufacturing costs... The speaker hole takes a third of the front panel! The tiny controllers are mounted on each side of the system, but can also be detached to play in the sofa ;...
MAGICLICK Teleclick
This is an obscure Argentinian pong powered by a General Instrument AY-3-8500-7 chipset. Though it looks like a classic pong system, it is interesting for at least two reasons. First, the paddles are built with calculator or remote control plastic cases !! Indeed, once opened, you can clearly see the holes planned for the plastic keys (see "more pictures" section)... The second unsual fact is that, thanks to the GI AY-3-8500-7 chipset, the system offers a game rarely found on most pongs : ...
GENERAL HOME PRODUCTS (GHP) Wonder Wizard (model N° 7702)
Here is an interesting deluxe PONG system: Wonder Wizard model 7702. It was sold by General Home Products (GHP) in 1976, and is basically a Magnavox Odyssey 300. As a matter of fact, Wonder Wizard systems were manufactued by Magnavox. Model 7702 contains the same circuit board than Odyssey 300, and the bottom part of its plastic case is identical to the one used for the first Odyssey system. As this system is same a...
MBO Tele-Ball
MBO, a popular German electronics manufacturer, produced a large serie of pong systems named "tele-ball" with numbers ranging from 1 to 9. Though they had some cosmetic differences, all these systems were very close to each other in terms of functionality. The Tele-Ball is the most basic system of the whole range, offering only the 4 classic pong games in black & white. The two big silver dials on the front panel are used to switch the system on/off and to select games. The
BINATONE TV Master 4 plus 2 (model n° 01 / 4869)
This pong is one of the many Binatone systems. As its name indicates, it offers 6 games : 4 pong games (squash, squash practice, football, tennis) and 2 shooting games (target, shooting). In order to understand how this system fits into the Binatone pong range, here is simplified list of the systems : TV Master MK IV TV Master 4 plus 2 TV Master MK 6 TV Master MK 8 TV Master MK 10 Colour TV Game Colour TV Game 4 plus 2 Colour TV Game MK 6 Colour TV Game MK 10 The TV master se...

BINATONE Colour TV Game MK 10 (model n° 01 / 4842)
This is the first game system I owned. No idea how much it cost, my dad brought it home one day. Probably about 78/79. It broke eventually and we got a Spectrum 16k :)

"VINTROPEDIA - Vintage Computer and Retro Console Price Guide 2009"

Says the system came out in 1977 and prices it at 15 euro

(By the way that book has like 14k systems so probably a good place to look for missing info on the ones you have on this site)

BENTLEY Compu-vision
I bought this system at a yard sale sometime in the late 80''s. There was a major problem. In any game, the ball would come out, hit the player "paddle" on the right, and then start bouncing from top to bottom of screen in a straight line, with no way to ever hit it again. To this day I still wonder what kind of defect could cause this to happen.

MIRAGAMA GMC-802
This game is not called miragama but miragame with an e at the end. If you look at the name tag, the last character seems similar to the a, but has the open space/gap to the right. So it is no a.
I btw stepped into te same trap :)

I own the exact same system under the Regina brand. The only difference is the silver sticker at the bottom left.

HANIMEX  666
Just broke out my dad''s old Hanimex 666s-n earlier today. Hasn''t been played in ~50 years. It was sitting in a box in the garage along with other things collecting so much tust and flys and dirt in that open top boxs, I had no idea if it would work. I always misstook it for a power tool. Well let me tell you, it works like a dream! Me and my dad played a couple of rounds of tennis and to tell the truth, I can''t remember having this much fun with my dad ever. Fantastic little relick! I adore it.
