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". Indeed many Gamatic 7600 systems identical to this one can be found worldwide, the earliest one being a japanes...

The Grandstand T.V. Game 2000 is a classic pong system sold in U.K. It can be also found under different other brands worldwide, for example as the Univox 41N in France. 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...

ALEX Video Spiel TG-621
A classic german pong system which uses the GI AY-3-8500 chip, thus playing the 4 basic pong games. No shooting games here... Something rare for that time, the two tiny controllers are not hardwired to the system. This means that when one of them died, it wasn't necessary to change the whole system. The shape of the case is weird. It looks like a case conceived for a small computer. Indeed there's enough room for a small keyboard instead of the actual panel control, and the bulk at the back c...
HANIMEX  677
This is a handheld pong. The biggest paddle includes the system hardware. The second paddle wich is smaller (1/3 of the system size) is attached to the first one but could be detached. Thus, this is a real portable and easy to carry pong system. The 677 is different from the Hanimex 666 in that it can play 2 shooting games with a light gun....
BINATONE Colour TV Game (model n░ 01 / 4931)
This pong is one of the many Binatone systems. It is the first of the "Colour TV game" 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...
HANIMEX  T-338
The main particularity of this pong system is that it is very very very small! The pads are only 2 x 6 cm. It looks like it had been made for dwarves or very little kid hands. Though this must have been a kind of marketing feature (so small you can take it with you anywhere you want), it also must have reduced the manufacturing costs... The speaker hole takes a third of the front panel! The tiny controllers are mounted on each side of the system, but can also be detached to play in the sofa ;...
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...
RADOFIN ELECTRONICS LIMITED Tele-Sports
This pong unit is excellent. It only plays four games but the controls, knobs and switches are really a pleasure to use. The game selection is made through a huge knob, the options are selected with nice 70's switchs which make you feel you are controling the USS Enterprise... Big orange buttons are used for on/off, reset and serve. There is also two vertical sliders (ranging from O to 10) to keep the score of both players. The on screen scoring is still there, but the sliders are used to cou...
ULTRASOUND Tele-Sports
This is exactly the same system as the Radofin Tele-Sports, but sold by Ultrasound in Germany. See the Radofin Tele-Sports entry for more info....
THOMSON  JV1T
Even Thomson made pong systems! Actually, this system is an Interton 2400 pong system rebadged by Thomson for the french market. Read this entry for more info. Thomson also released another pong system, the JV-1002....
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...
SONOLOR Telematch
This pong unit is very common in many ways. It uses the same plastic case as many other systems, and is powered by the General Instrument AY-3-8500 chipset which equips most pong units of that time. This chipset offers 4 ball games (Football, Soccer, Handball, Tennis) and 2 shooting games which are not available on this system as there is no option for a light-gun. This was a common solution to seemingly develop a whole range of system with the same hardware ;-) The controllers are very ba...

Hi although I agree with Olivier about how much these are worth, they are still very collectable and a great talking point for parties and some of them look good enough to have on display just for their aesthetic value.

ATARI  SUPER PONG (Model C-140)
I love this system. I got mine from deep in the basement in 2015 and I LOVE this thing! Its a real classic. The power cable is broken so I have to use the batteries but it has a surprisingly good battery life. All in all this is a solid system.

GAMATIC 7600
Hi I have one of these lovely old consoles.

It was in a very sorry state when I got it, but its been cleaned up, resoldered where required and broken parts fixed.

It works really well and its just so refreshing to to play a simple yet addictive game of pong.
