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...

NEC  PC Engine Duo R
This is essentially the same machine as the PC Engine Duo, but with a redesigned white case and no headphone jack or CD door lock....
This very classical system-in-a-paddle is a pirate Atari VCS 2600 clone with 127 built-in games (but no cartridge slot). Produced in China, it was released under several brands (NICS in the US, SystemA in UK...) all over the world. This system was sold until recently in France by a local company : AKOR. Everything you need to have fun playing good old 2600 games (excluding the TV set) is built in the system : CPU, games, control pad. While the second version (aka TV-Boy II) needs to be connec...
NEC  PC Engine Duo RX
Exactly the same as the PC Engine Duo R, but with a slight blue hint to the case and the six button gamepad included. ...
Though different in shape, the ITMC SD-290 is internaly the same system as the Rollet Video-Color and the Hanimex HMG-7900. The SD-290 model was sold in France by ITMC, but could also be found under the JouéClub brand (JouéCLub SD-290)... All these systems were surely produced by Soundic in Hong-Kong as they have code-names like "SD-2xx" (where SD would mean Soundic) on their elec...
EPOCH Cassette Vision
The Cassette Vision is a japanese console released on the 30th June, 1981 by Epoch Co. This is for sure an obscure system as little is known about this console. It was one of the first cartridge system released in japan and ha d almost no real competitor until the launch of the fabulous Nintendo Famicom in 1983. It was however clearly a low-end and cheap system. The graphics are very basic and blocky. The overall aspect of the games and cartridges (size and plastic boxes), is strangely...
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...
SEGA SG-1000
The SG-1000 (also called the Mark I) was Sega's first home console. Although a market test was conducted in 1981, it would be another two years until the SG-1000 received it's full launch, putting it in direct competition with the NES. Sega's arcade background meant that a number of arcade games were converted to the system, most of which were very well done. The graphics and sound may seem primitive today, but this was cutting edge technology back then a...
SANWA 9015
This is another incarnation of the classic systems using cartridges based on General Instruments chips. The Sanwa 9015 has a stylish silver front plate. 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. Then a big & funky start button can be pressed to start the game. The two joystick connectors (DIN plugs) are placed at the front of the case, wich is quite convenient......
PALLADIUM Video-Computer-Game
The Palladium Video-Computer-Game is one of the many systems "software-compatible" with the Emerson Arcadia 2001. Though, the Emerson Arcadia 2001 is the most popular system of this console group, it was not necessarily at the origin of it. Things must be seen differently. Philips / Signetics developped a hardware platform to demonstrate the possibilities of their Signetics 2650 & 2636 chipsets. Somehow, this hardware was licenced (by Philips?) to many th...
SONY  PlayStation
After Sony and Nintendo's collaboration on the Super CD-ROM came to an end, Sony continued their research and decided to make a stand alone console. A deal was reached with Nintendo to allow the Play Station (as it was called then) to play SNES cartridges. This feature was dropped from the final design, and the name changed to PlayStation. A powerful machine, the PlayStation featured 3D graphics capabilities which at the time were remarkable. Games like ...

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!

I had NES.

I Found an Old "ACETRONIC MPU-1000" / "RADOFIN 1292" Game "SPACE WAR (30)" in with my VIC 20 Stuff!

It is Nooo Goood to me, so Anyone interested in Purchasing it for CHEEP???

BANDAI WonderSwan
If you have ever found a WonderSwan, B$W, Color or Crystal in another country than Japan, it was imported, without the approval of Bandai. and $150 is 2 to 3 times more expensive than what is was in Japan..

Also there is a small error in the desctiption

"ROM: 1KB save EEPROM" mean nothing, there is an internal EEPROM but it''s not used as a save memory for game, it''s only to store some internal information for the console, and the Owner Infos

Also, the Media is proprietary ROM, that''s true, but the "small amount of EEPROM for game save (max 16MB)" is eaither badly written, or just false.

There are two type of possible save method on the WonderSwan, SRAM and EEPROM (like early GBA game in fact), the EEPROM capability have a limit of 16KB (maximum of 13 bit of Address with 16bit data) and have the ability to address 256 * 64KB of SRAM so 16MB in this case.)
