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...

BINATONE TV Master MK IV (model n░ 01 / 4974)
This pong is one of the many Binatone systems. It is the first of the "TV Master" serie and offers 4 pong games (squash, squash practise, football, tennis). 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 serie are black & white pongs (fir...
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....
MIRAGAMA GMC-802
This one is one the last pong built so it's quite complete and offers everything a player needs to play pong in good conditions. The use of the Motorola M-588135 chipset makes it possible to choose a different bat size for each player. The system has even an on/off sound switch (quite useful)! This pong is the same system as the more famous Nintendo Color TV Game-15. The Motorola M-588315 chipset is indeed a clone of the Mitsubishi Electric M58816P chipset used in the Nintendo syste...
COLECO  Telstar Marksman
After the release of the first Telstar (the first "dedicated-chip" pong system) in 1976 which was a big success, Coleco conceived a whole range of pongs. The focus of the Marskman is made on its gun and shooting games, though the system in itself is not very different from the other pongs of that time. Basicaly it is a Telstar Colortron with two shooting games. The system is powered by the General Instrument AY-3-8...
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, ...
JOSTYKIT MULTI-TV-GAME HF 344
One of the rare system from Danemark. This was sold as a do-it-yourself kit to solder. It came with a documentation on how to build it up. It's a very basic system which includes an AY-3-8500 GI chip but wich offers very few options (slow or fast and that's all !). It looks very nice with its sheet metal. One player uses the control knob inserted in the system case while the other player use a detachable paddle. The system is very small and can easily be carried away. There is no internal sp...
PRIM 6 VIDEO Jeux TV
This is another "pong-in-a-case" system. You can easily carry this one away to play pong anywhere you want ;-) The design is very sober, only metallic and wooden parts. It looks like it has been made by hand in very limited quantities. The system offers the classic games of the General Instrument AY-3-8500 chipset. The game selection is made through a big knob in the middle of the system. There are also some holes made in the metalic case, to let the sound of the speaker pass through....
TELE FLIP Paris Video Sport FY-707
Isn't this one cool ? You just have to softly touch the buttons and ....pffft... the contact is made, great ! All buttons are of this type and this give a real pleasure to use the console, really nice. The system is from 1977 and uses the AY-3-8500 chip from General Instrument. It can play the 4 classic pong games. The display is in black & white but the score is displayed on screen. The sound comes out directly from the box. There's even a speaker hole designed in the middle of the cas...
CONIC TVG-209
This system comes from germany but many clones exist in several other countries. The documentation is both in english and german. This picture doesn't show the cables because they all could be stored into storages. Detachable controllers have their own cable storage at their back and the main unit has got a large storage for the video cable (see more pictures section). This is in fact a classic pong system that uses the GI AY-3-8500 chip, thus playing the 4 basic pong games. No shooting ga...

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.

Model number 1025
FCC type apparatus number TV-382
Valid only when operated according to FCC rules., part 15.
Manufactured for Concept 2000
North Miami, FL 33151

I suspect that these were made for a brief period of time, but imported into the US market as well.
