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".

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.

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...

UNIVERSUM TV Multi-Spiel (Handheld)
This is a handheld pong, since everything is contained in one handheld controller. It is the same system as the Radio-Shack TV Scoreboard. See this entry for more info. However, the system pictured here does not have the shooting games implemented, it's the 4 game version....
INGERSOLL XK 410C
The Ingersoll XK 410C is one of the few Ingersoll pong systems released at the end of the 70s. This one offers 10 games in colour (hence the "C"): target solo, target double, basket 1, basket 2, gridball, squash 1, squash 2, football, tennis and ice hockey. Game selection is made through a big slider at the right side of the console. Several switches control game options (speed, player sizes, service automatic or manual). Finally, two orange buttons are used to reset the system and to serve m...
ROBERTS Rally IV
A classic pong from Roberts with four games (hence the name of the system) and detachables paddles. Made in Japan. The difference between the Rally IV and Paddle IV are unclear. Can anyone help ? Both systems seem identical despite a different cosmetic design : same chipset, same games, same controls, switches and buttons, etc... The console is plastic with nice woodgrain accents. A knob allows you to select from the four games. There are two buttons, one...
COLECO  Telstar Classic - Model #6045
After the release of the Telstar (the first "dedicated-chip" pong system) in 1976 which was a big success, Coleco conceived a whole range of pongs for release at Christmas 1977. This pong is identical to the original Telstar but with a big deluxe wooden frame. There's a 3 positions switch that controls difficulty (beginner : slow ball, big paddles / advanced : fast ball, big paddles / expert : fast ball, small paddles). If this is common to the first Telstars, this is quite different from ...
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...

Hehe, this one is tweetie's personnal pong... This pong is identical in shape to many others european pong of that time. ...
BINATONE TV Master MK 6 (model n░ 01 / 4907)
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...

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...
BINATONE TV Game Unit (model n░ 01 / 4990)
Very interesting and early pong system but sadly nearly nothing is known about it. It is the UK version of the Entex Gameroom Tele-Pong (USA). It might be an analogic pong, using no dedicated chipset. The controllers are weird : two knobs for each player, integrated into the plastic case. One for vertical movements and the other for horizontal movements. Two other knobs at the top of the case are used to set V-Hold and H-Hold values of the display. Anoth...

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.
