TV-Game 6 (model CTG-6V)

An early pong system from Nintendo offering 6 pong games in colour. This is in fact the first home video game system produced by Nintendo. As they lacked the technology to develop their own microprocessors, they struck a deal with Mitsubishi Electronics and the two companies developed the Color TV Game 6 in 1977. It was a big success in Japan, and sold over a million copies.

The system is fairly simple. Two dial controllers built-in the system, so two players can play simultaneously. Some switches to toggle difficulty, players bat size, service auto/manual... a start button and an on/off switch.

The 6 games are classic ones: handball one and two players, tennis one and two players, hockey one and two players... Score is displayed on screen. Of course it is an NTSC display, using RF channel 1 or 2, all in colour.

We need more info about this pong ! If you designed, used, or have more info about this system, please send us pictures or anything you might find useful.
