GAMATIC 7600
The Gamatic 7600 is a classic pong system sold worldwide under many different brands, as the Grandstand T.V. Game Model 2000 for example, or the Univox 41N. The system itself seems to have been made in Korea. The electronic board is labeled "F'GAMATIC-7600".

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...

Game Model 2000 for example, or the Intel TV Sport 1004 in Germany (1977). It seems to have been quite popular as many for them were found in french flea markets and boot sales.

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
The Telstar was the first "pong-in-a-chip" system. Here is what says Leonard Herman abouth the Telstar in its excellent book "Phoenix, the fall and rise of videogames": "Coleco released Telstar in 1976. Like Pong, Telstar could only play video tennis but it retailed at an inexpensive $50 that made it attractive to most families that were on a budget. Coleco managed to sell over a million units that year. Ironically, one reason for the super sales can be traced to a sever...
CONCEPT 2000 Spectrum 6
This one is from Australia but there are clone in nearly every country where pongs can be found. There is a nice rainbow label but the system is very sober with its metallic color. There are not a lot of buttons too and this is because the internal chip is a National-Seminconductor one that allows the games to be selected by pressing just one button. The two pads are detachable. Each one has got a button to choose between large or small bat size and to activate the reset option....
MBO Tele-Ball VII
MBO was a famous electronic german brand from Munich. This is a quite sober pong system... actually, not a very fun or nice looking one. At least, it is complete and offers the 6 games of the AY-3-8500 from General Instruments. The detachable controllers have a serve button. Each of them can be stored on the sides of the main unit. MBO produced a large serie of pong systems that they named "tele-ball" with numbers from 1 to 9 (or more ?). But there did not seem to be any real evolutivity as t...
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....

MAGNAVOX Odyssey 200
In 1975, Magnavox released an improved version of the Odyssey 100: the Odyssey 200. It was same as the Odyssey 100 but with two additional chips from Texas Instruments, which added a third game called SMASH and some on-screen scoring. The Odyssey 200 could be played by two or four players (first system to offer this feature), and displayed very basic on-screen scoring using small rectangles (it still had the two plastic cursors to record the scores). Each time a player marked a point, his whi...
NOVOTON Video Sports
One more system which looks like the Markint 4A system. This one has got a different selector knob from the Markint system which is round. The system is very large. The middle part looks like a common system but it feels like two additional parts has been added on each side. The paddles can be inserted in these parts which allow the player to play without removing the paddles. All texts are in french....
POLISTIL V.G. 2
Quite interesting Italian pong system. It is very classic by its functions but very attractive by its cosmetic design. Indeed the system itself is very common : 4 basic pong games (tennis, football, squash, pelota) in black & white surely driven by the AY-3-8500 chipset from General Instruments. But the black and electric blue case, with its round shaped angles turns it into a very funky and collectionable pong system....

BINATONE Colour TV Game MK 10 (model n░ 01 / 4842)
This is the first game system I owned. No idea how much it cost, my dad brought it home one day. Probably about 78/79. It broke eventually and we got a Spectrum 16k :)

"VINTROPEDIA - Vintage Computer and Retro Console Price Guide 2009"

Says the system came out in 1977 and prices it at 15 euro

(By the way that book has like 14k systems so probably a good place to look for missing info on the ones you have on this site)

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.
