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...

LUXOR  Sportsman 2001
This system is very similar to the Sportron systems but it's got a different internal chip: A National Seminconductor chip which allows the games to be selected by pressing one button. So it's very efficient. Just one button and 2 switches. It's a color system. The case was designed to incorporate a speaker but the chip allows the sound to come out of the TV speaker so there is no internal speaker inside the system. Pads are fixed by scratch pieces....
BINATONE TV Master MK 10 (model n░ 01 / 4834)
This pong is one of the many Binatone systems. As its name indicates, it offers 10 games : 8 pong games (basket 1, basket 2, gridball, squash 1, squash 2, football, tennis, ice hockey) and 2 shooting games (target 1, target 2). It is the most complete of the Binatone TV Master serie (black & white pongs). 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...
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...
HANIMEX  677
This is a handheld pong. The biggest paddle includes the system hardware. The second paddle wich is smaller (1/3 of the system size) is attached to the first one but could be detached. Thus, this is a real portable and easy to carry pong system. The 677 is different from the Hanimex 666 in that it can play 2 shooting games with a light gun....
BINATONE TV Master MK 8 (model n░ 01 / 4823)
This pong is one of the many Binatone systems. As its name indicates, it offers 8 games. 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 first serie, TV Master systems, are all black & white pongs, whereas later Colour TV games have colour display. Th...
HANIMEX  7771
A classic european pong made in Honk-Kong and sold under many brands through Europe. The Hanimex 7771G is exactly the same system (even internally) as the 7771, but it enables the two shooting games initially offered by the AY-3-8500 chipset, by providing a lightgun and its connector. This means that the 7771 "could" play the shooting games, but hardware was not implemented in it. This was a common marketing strategy at the time, in order to propose a range of systems at minimal cost. ...
THOMSON  JV1T
Even Thomson made pong systems! Actually, this system is an Interton 2400 pong system rebadged by Thomson for the french market. Read this entry for more info. Thomson also released another pong system, the JV-1002....
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...
MATCH SD-01c
Isn't this one nice ? Large, white and with a quite sober design. The shape is slightly curved too. The two remote controllers are small and funny when they are out of their storages. This system was found in Germany as all the texts on the box are in german. A classic pong system which uses the GI AY-3-8500 chip, thus playing the 4 basic pong games. No shooting games here although the AY-3-8500 has got these games built-in. They simply did implement the gun hardware :( Same system as
ROBERTS Paddle IV
A classic pong from Roberts with four games (hence the name of the system) and detachables paddles. Apparently made in Japan. The two paddles can be attached to each side of the system, or taken apart. There are only equiped with a unique dial. The general cosmetic design of the Paddle IV looks like the Commodore 64 one. Round edges and beige/creamy color. The games selection is made with a knob... PROMOTIONAL CATCHERS: - Featuring 4 games with detachable...

Hi although I agree with Olivier about how much these are worth, they are still very collectable and a great talking point for parties and some of them look good enough to have on display just for their aesthetic value.

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.
