APF M1000 / MP1000
The APF M1000 was released in 1978. It's a Video game system cart based, comes with 2 non-detachables joysticks with a numeric keypad on each ones (look likes a mini-calculator with a joystick), has "Reset" & "Power" buttons on the unit. Only could be played on a Color TV only. This system seems to have been the pack-in unit with Imagination Machine. The APF MP1000 was released in 1978. This system is basically the same as the M1000 model and both syste...
SOUNDIC SD-290 Programmable Colour Video Game
Though different in shape, the Soundic SD-290 is internaly the same system as the Rollet Video-Color, the Hanimex HMG-7900 and the Soundicvision SD-200. This SD-290 model was sold worldwide through different brands (in France for example by ITMC and JouéClub)... All these systems were surely produced by Soundic in Hong-Kong as they have code-names like "SD-2xx" (where SD would mea...
ATARI  Stunt Cycle (model SC-450)
The following description comes from website, especially the Stunt Cycle dedicated page : "Considered by many collectors as the coolest of the dedicated (non-cartridge) Atari home consoles, Stunt Cycle allowed aspiring Evel Knievel wannabes the joy of performing knarly stunts -- without the risk of breaking one's neck. Tons of tricks to pull off he...
This version of the Saturn was produced by Victor (better known in the U.S. and Europe as JVC) under licence from Sega. It is functionaly identicle to the Sega version of the console, the only change is a different splash screen when the console is switched on. There are two different versions of the V-Saturn: V-Saturn (RG-JX1): This is the first version, released on November 22nd 1994. The top half is grey and the bottom half is black. It has oval bu...
This version of the Saturn was produced by Samsung under licence from Sega exclusively for the Korean market. Unusually for the Saturn there seems to only one version of this particular console (SPC-ST2). It features a stange mix of components from the different versions of the Saturn available elswhere. The case is of the early oval buttoned type but uses the motherboard from the newer round buttoned type, resulting in some strange characteristics. For ...
HANIMEX  SD 070 Colour (programmable TV-game console)
This is a typical system using catridges based on the different chipsets developped by General Instruments in the late 70s. Each GI chips was able to generate several games, ball games for a start, then later car racing, motorcycle, submarines, tanks and shooting games. The system has two detachable controllers with one analog joystick and one fire button each. The control panel is composed of 10 buttons to select the different games offered by each cartridge (10 being the maximum). Difficult...
SEGA SG-1000 Mark II
Very similar to the SG-1000, the SG-1000 Mark II was just a minor update consisting mainly of cosmetic changes. The case was redesigned and the joysticks of the Mark I were replaced by joypads which could be stored in built-in holders located on either side of the console. There was also built-in port where a keyboard could be attached, effectively turning the console into a computer. However, the Mark II was still outsold by it's computer counterpart, t...
SNK Neo Geo Pocket Color
Following the surprise withdrawal of the Neo Geo Pocket, SNK immediately launched the Neo Geo Pocket Color (NGPC). The NGPC was available in six different colours. Internally the hardware was almost identical to the earlier Neo Geo Pocket, but now featured a colour display. Again SNK released ports of their arcade games, but the most notable game must surely be Sonic The Hedgehog - Pocket Adventure, which was the first ever Sonic game to be released...
SNK Neo Geo Pocket
Released towards the end of 1998 in Japan, the Neo Geo Pocket was yet another challenger to Nintendo's Game Boy. The Neo Geo Pocket had great battery life (even the Pocket Color managed around 40 hours from just two batteries!), an area where so many Game Boy competitors had failed, and a number of SNK's popular arcade games appeared on the system. But the sales figures were lower than SNK were expecting and the machine was discontinued after just a few months, only to be immediately rep...
In a last ditch attempt to get a foothold in the lucrative console market Commodore launched the Amiga CD32. After their previous effort with the C64 GS failed and the strange decision to advertise the Amiga 600 as a games machine that could be used as a computer it was vital that the CD32 succeeded. The CD32 is notable for being the first 32 bit CD-ROM based console ever released (the Pla...

SEGA Master System
The Sega Master System (SMS) was originally released as the Sega Mark III in Japan. It was released after Nintendo's NES (Nintendo Entertainment System) and was never able to catch up to its level of success. The hardware was superior to that of the NES but the number of quality games on Nintendo's console far out numbered those on the Master System. There were some quality titles on the system and it was also the f...
MBO Teleball-Cassetten-Game
This is another incarnation of the classic systems using cartridges based on General Instruments chips. Ten small buttons, horizontaly arranged, are used to select the different games offered by the inserted cartridge. The playing options are activated by the several switches. The joystick are detachable and are connected to the system through connectors placed on each side. The cartridge released are the classic ones for these systems using cartridges based on General Instrument chips: Ba...
COLECO  Colecovision
After the success of their Telstar pong systems in the late 70's, Coleco decided to re-enter the videogame market, inspired by the success of cartridge based systems like the Atari VCS and Mattel Intellivision. As the Colecovision was released later than these competitors, it was possible for the Coleco engineers to put more hardware in the box while keeping the cost acceptable. The Colecovision is thus powered by a ...
Action Max from Worlds of Wonder (WoW), released in the US in 1987, was a unique, if simple and ultimately unimpressive game system that used special pre-recorded VHS video tapes for software. The original package came bundled with the base unit, light gun, television sensor, headphones, connection cables, documentation and one game, "Sonic Fury". Batteries or a power supply were not included. After connecting the components to the base unit and the base unit to any standard VCR, the player i...
NINTENDO Nintendo 64
Originally starting life as "Project Reality" the Nintendo 64 was the follow up to the SNES. The press went wild over the new console, with articles claiming it could generate graphics on a par with high end Silicon Graphics workstations. Two arcade games (Cruis'n USA and Killer Instinct) were made in 1994 to show the public what the Ultra 64, as it was now known, would be capable of. The announcement on the Killer Instinct intro "available for your home...
KONIX Multisystem
The Konix multisystem console, also known as the Konix slipstream, was a joint development between 2 british businesses, Flare Technology and Konix. Konix were on a high in 1988 after the success of their Joystick range and well known through gaming channels. Flare Technology was formed by 3 ex-Sinclair engineers, all of whome were involved in the aborted Loki "Super Spectrum", which was shelved after Sinclair sold the computer division to Amstrad. Not wanting their work to be wasted, they for...
TELE-PARTNER Giochi Televisivi (Mod. G)
The Tele-Partner is an hybrid video-game, something between a classic pong system and a more advanced console since it does not only play classic pong games (tennis, soccer, squash & practice) but also two shooting games (via a light-gun) and four motor-cycle games (drag race, stunt cycle, motor cross, enduro). Conceived in Hong-Kong, it was sold by Tele-Partner in Italy. It uses the same plastic case as many other europeans systems of that time. With its 10 games, this must be one of the mos...
SEGA Master System III
The Master System III was released in 2003 by Brazilian toy manufacturer Tec Toy. It is exclusive to the Brazilian market where it is still a popular system. Externally the console is the same as the Master System II apart from the colour, which is a very light grey instead of being dark grey. In fact the Master System III is still on sale to this day. The current version, Master System 3 - 120 Super Jogos Na Memória, comes with 120 games built in....

Are those controllers wireless? Or is it just the picture?

I picked up one of the "Darth Vader" systems with 6 games all cables and a controller for 30 $ and I can say it was well worth it. Too bad on of the games was E.T. the extraterrestrial...

ATARI  Jaguar
No claim was ever made by Atari that the system was completely 64 bits across. This was the big contention that had people complaining about the ''bitness'' of the machine. It had the OPL((Object Processor Logic) not the POP) and the Blitter Chip, which were fully 64 bits across and used the fully 64 bit data bus of the system. The GPU core was a 32 bit RISC processor as was the DSP core, neither of which had any reason to be 64 bits wide. The idea was to use the GPU core to command the 64 bit parts. Unfortunately all too many developers used the 16 68k processor and choke the daylights out of the performance, hence the 16 bit looking games for the most part. The power was certainly there but the tools and the support were not. I believe there were at least 70 games plus not to mention numerous homebrews...which are still being made today.

Nick Blackburn
VOLTMACE Database Games-Computer
I Have a fully restored Voltmace that powers on but as I have no games I have no idea if it actually works! Was very grubby when I got it but now it looks great.
Anyone got a few games spare?!! :)

POLYCON PG 7 (Programmable TV Games)
I sold one of these today for 45€ inclusive 4 cartridges

Randomize Timer
Examining the emulators:
The games look a little too familiar... (2600 ripoff, cough...$-)

But it is still refreshing to see similar programs from a different perspective$ A nice addition to MESS.

ROWTRON Television Computer System
Does anyone have a picture of the original PSU, I see conflicting information for the voltage and amperage. I have an original Rowtron TCS from my childhood but its lost the PSU, I want to be double sure I have the right spec before trying anything that will damage it!
