GAMATIC 7600
The Gamatic 7600 is a classic pong system sold worldwide under many different brands, as the Grandstand T.V. Game Model 2000 for example, or the Univox 41N.

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". Indeed many Gamatic 7600 systems identical to this one can be found worldwide, the earliest one being a japanes...

The Grandstand T.V. Game 2000 is a classic pong system sold in U.K. It can be also found under different other brands worldwide, for example as the Univox 41N in France. The system itself seems to have been made in Korea. The electronic board is labeled "F'GAMATIC-7600".

The Univox 41N is a classic pong system sold in France. It can also be found worldwide under many different brands, as the Grandstand T.V. Game Model 2000 for example, or the Intel TV Sport 1004 in Germany (1977). It seems to have been quite popular as many for them were found in french flea markets and boot sales. The system itself seems to have been made in Korea. The electronic board is labeled "F'GAMATIC-7600". Indeed many Gamatic 7600 systems identi...
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...

SEB LOISIRS Telescore (Model 750)
A cool french pong. At the end of the 70s, SEB, a well known french kitchen ustensils manufacturer, decided to sell its own pong system, just like the other companies. The design is very original with this particular black round shaped case and the flashy orange sliders and switches! The chipset is not the classic AY-3-8500 from General Instrument but the TMS-1965 from Texas-Instrument. It offers the same 4 basic games. A few other models followed this one, offering separated controllers a...
JOSTYKIT MULTI-TV-GAME HF 344
One of the rare system from Danemark. This was sold as a do-it-yourself kit to solder. It came with a documentation on how to build it up. It's a very basic system which includes an AY-3-8500 GI chip but wich offers very few options (slow or fast and that's all !). It looks very nice with its sheet metal. One player uses the control knob inserted in the system case while the other player use a detachable paddle. The system is very small and can easily be carried away. There is no internal sp...
ULTRASOUND Tele-Sports
This is exactly the same system as the Radofin Tele-Sports, but sold by Ultrasound in Germany. See the Radofin Tele-Sports entry for more info....
AUDIOSONIC PP-800
Hehe, this one is tweetie's personnal pong... This pong is identical in shape to many others european pong of that time. ...
SAFT LECLANCH╔ TV8 Sports
This is a real funky french pong system! It is orange and very round in shape. It doesn't look like any other pong system ! Its two round paddles are also quite unsual. They are identical to those of the OC5000 sytem. This system includes the AY-3-8610 chipset from General Instruments. That explains why there are joysticks instead of simple sliders, since with this chip, you can move your paddle horizontally and vertically (whereas with the more comme AY-3-8500, you could only move it vertica...
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
MAGNAVOX Odyssey 200
In 1975, Magnavox released an improved version of the Odyssey 100: the Odyssey 200. It was same as the Odyssey 100 but with two additional chips from Texas Instruments, which added a third game called SMASH and some on-screen scoring. The Odyssey 200 could be played by two or four players (first system to offer this feature), and displayed very basic on-screen scoring using small rectangles (it still had the two plastic cursors to record the scores). Each time a player marked a point, his whi...
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.

ALEX Video Spiel TG-621
A classic german pong system which uses the GI AY-3-8500 chip, thus playing the 4 basic pong games. No shooting games here... Something rare for that time, the two tiny controllers are not hardwired to the system. This means that when one of them died, it wasn't necessary to change the whole system. The shape of the case is weird. It looks like a case conceived for a small computer. Indeed there's enough room for a small keyboard instead of the actual panel control, and the bulk at the back c...
STAREX 502
A small european pong found in France. It uses a Texas-Instrument chip (TMS-1965) which plays 6 classic pong games. It used the same plastic case as the Commodore TV Game 2000K. The system can be used with a gun to play the two shooting games. The gun-connection is made at the back of the system via two little "jack" plugs. Also on the left side of the control panel is a small screw used to adjust the display horizontal adjustment. The system was ma...

ATARI  SUPER PONG (Model C-140)
I love this system. I got mine from deep in the basement in 2015 and I LOVE this thing! Its a real classic. The power cable is broken so I have to use the batteries but it has a surprisingly good battery life. All in all this is a solid system.

GAMATIC 7600
Hi I have one of these lovely old consoles.

It was in a very sorry state when I got it, but its been cleaned up, resoldered where required and broken parts fixed.

It works really well and its just so refreshing to to play a simple yet addictive game of pong.
