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...

SEARS PONG (Model 25796)
This is the Sears version of Atari Pong (model C-100). Read this entry for more info. ...
SOCI╔T╔ OCCITANE D'ELECTRONIQUE OC 5000
Apart from the chipset, this pong is 100% French made, with an original design. The name 5000 must be because of the AY-3-8500 chipset used in this pong, as the OC-6000 must be named after its GI AY-3-8600 chipset. The paddles are fairly simple...round and cute. The cosmetic design in general is very typical of late 70's french productions... This pong is equiped with a robot function that allows the player to play against the system. You can even adju...
BINATONE Colour TV Game MK 6 (model n░ 01 / 4761)
This pong is one of the many Binatone systems. As its name indicates, it offers 6 games : 4 pong games (squash, squash practice, football, tennis) and 2 shooting games (target, shooting). 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 Colour TV Ga...
FUJI ELECTRIC Sportstron TV-Game (Coca-Cola edition)
This is a rare and funny japanese pong. Its hardware is quite classic with a AY-3-8500 chipset only offering 3 games, whereas this chip can play 6 games. But hey, this is marketing! The main feature about this system is that it is a Coca-Cola edition. The two dials built-in the system are coke cap shaped! Excellent. There are also switches to control difficulty settings (paddle size, ball speed, etc.), a power switch and a serve button....

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 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...
ROBERTS Rally IV
A classic pong from Roberts with four games (hence the name of the system) and detachables paddles. Made in Japan. The difference between the Rally IV and Paddle IV are unclear. Can anyone help ? Both systems seem identical despite a different cosmetic design : same chipset, same games, same controls, switches and buttons, etc... The console is plastic with nice woodgrain accents. A knob allows you to select from the four games. There are two buttons, one...
SPORTRON 101U
This is a very common european system. It was released by numerous manufacturers such as Intel (Germany), Asaflex, Univox, Interstate and others, and exists in two versions: 4 and 6 games (model 105 ?). The case can be black or white and the controllers can change. It has big orange buttons and large game selection wheel. It was released in 1977 and uses the popular AY-3-8500 chip grom General Instruments offering the 4 classic pong games : Hockey, Tenn...

Hi people are saying this unit freezes, I added a small heatsink to the board from spare zx spectrum parts I had and it no longer freezes.

Hope that helps.

PHILIPS  Odyssey 2001
Here are a few subtle bonus features of this system, thanks to the National Semiconductor chip:
- To change the paddle size, move your paddle off the playfield and press the reset button. Each player can independently choose from 3 paddle sizes.
- When it is your turn to serve, the ball will be served from the location of your paddle.
- To pause a match between balls, move your paddle off the screen when it is your turn to serve. The game will wait until your paddle returns to the playfield.

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.
