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...

COLECO  Telstar Colormatic - Model #6130
After the release of the Telstar (the first "dedicated-chip" pong system) in 1976 which was a big success, Coleco conceived a whole range of pongs for release at Christmas 1977. This unit was essentially the same as the Telstar Alpha, with a designed woodgrain finish. However it has the distinction of being the first Coleco unit with detached controllers and color graphics (box says "different color for each game"). The controllers are nice and small with...
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.

COMMODORE  TV Game 2000K
Even Commodore made pong systems ! This one has 4 pads to allow 4 players games! The texts on the systems are both in german and english. This system is the only pong to use the MOSTek MPS-7601 chipset. Here is what www.pong-story.com says about it: MOSTek, another manufacturer well known in the micro computer market, released a quite advanced line of video game chips in 1977: the MPS-7600 series. Rather than ...
GENERAL HOME PRODUCTS (GHP) Wonder Wizard (model N░ 7702)
Here is an interesting deluxe PONG system: Wonder Wizard model 7702. It was sold by General Home Products (GHP) in 1976, and is basically a Magnavox Odyssey 300. As a matter of fact, Wonder Wizard systems were manufactued by Magnavox. Model 7702 contains the same circuit board than Odyssey 300, and the bottom part of its plastic case is identical to the one used for the first Odyssey system. As this system is same a...
MBO Tele-Ball IX
MBO, a popular German electronics manufacturer, produced a large serie of pong systems named "tele-ball" with numbers ranging from 1 to 9 (or more ?). Though they had some cosmetic differences, all these systems were very close to each other in terms of functionality. The Tele-Ball IX plays 10 games in color : target 1, target 2, basket 1, basket 2, gridball, squash 1, squash 2, football, tennis and ice hockey. It seems to be the most complete pong of the Tele-Ball systems, thanks to ...
COLECO  Telstar Ranger
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 for release at Christmas 1977. This is the first Telstar featuring the two shooting games of the GI AY-3-8500, hence its name "Telstar Ranger". It thus offers a total of 6 games which can be selected through a special knob. Despite the pictures beside, the two small controllers are not built-in the consol...
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...
SIXPLAY Sixplay
Hmm, there are still many mysteries arround this system. The case is in sheet metal so it's very heavy but indestructible. It's impossible to open because all parts have been reveted. There is only one part removable on top with clips to place the 9V batteries. The fact that the case is made of sheet metal means that only a few of these systems were produced. Indeed, plastic cases require a special and dedicated mould which is very expensive to make. Thus, the plastic solution was only adopte...
SEB LOISIRS Telescore (Model 750)
A cool french pong. At the end of the 70s, SEB, a well known french kitchen ustensils manufacturer, decided to sell its own pong system, just like the other companies. The design is very original with this particular black round shaped case and the flashy orange sliders and switches! The chipset is not the classic AY-3-8500 from General Instrument but the TMS-1965 from Texas-Instrument. It offers the same 4 basic games. A few other models followed this one, offering separated controllers a...
PHILIPS  Las Vegas ES-2208
This pong from Philips is a bit special. It uses the unusual AY-3-8550 from General Instruments. This chips offers 4 classic pong games (Tennis, Squash, Squash practice, Football) and 2 shooting games. The paddles can be moved verticaly AND horizontaly, hence the analog joysticks (instead of the classic sliders). The display is in color. There is a female DIN plug at the bottom-right part of the case. It is used to connect an optional light-gun to play the two shooting games. There are swi...

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.
