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". Indeed many Gamatic 7600 systems identical to this one can be found worldwide, the earliest one being a japanese Gamatic 7600 system released in 1976. The c...
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".

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...

ULTRASOUND TV-9010
This is a German pong system. All the texts are written in German. It's a handheld pong type: one of the paddles includes the systems hardware and is used by the first player. The second paddle is connected to the first one and is used by the second player. It could easily be disconnected and was very small (1/3 of the main parts size). As it was not hardwired, it was easily lost. This pong system has got an interesting feature: an On/Off switch for sound that allowed the players to turn o...
BINATONE TV Game Unit (model n░ 01 / 4990)
Very interesting and early pong system but sadly nearly nothing is known about it. It is the UK version of the Entex Gameroom Tele-Pong (USA). It might be an analogic pong, using no dedicated chipset. The controllers are weird : two knobs for each player, integrated into the plastic case. One for vertical movements and the other for horizontal movements. Two other knobs at the top of the case are used to set V-Hold and H-Hold values of the display. Anoth...
ROBERTS Paddle IV
A classic pong from Roberts with four games (hence the name of the system) and detachables paddles. Apparently made in Japan. The two paddles can be attached to each side of the system, or taken apart. There are only equiped with a unique dial. The general cosmetic design of the Paddle IV looks like the Commodore 64 one. Round edges and beige/creamy color. The games selection is made with a knob... PROMOTIONAL CATCHERS: - Featuring 4 games with detachable...
NINTENDO TV-Game 6 (model CTG-6V)
An early pong system from Nintendo offering 6 pong games in colour. This is in fact the first home video game system produced by Nintendo. As they lacked the technology to develop their own microprocessors, they struck a deal with Mitsubishi Electronics and the two companies developed the Color TV Game 6 in 1977. It was a big success in Japan, and sold over a million copies. The system is fairly simple. Two dial controllers built-in the system, so two players can play simultaneously. Some swi...
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....
SONICO 406-6 (Color TV Sports Video Game)
A classic german pong system which uses the GI AY-3-8512 chip from General Instruments, thus playing the 4 basic pong games + 2 shooting games, all in color. This particular model (406-6) was made in Hong Kong and sold worldwide under many different brands, here Sonico in Germany. The two controllers are not hardwired to the system, but connected to the console via two connectors located on the front panel (small jacks). This means that when one of them died, it wasn't necessary to change the...
PIZON BROS Visiomatic 101
One really nice and odd pong system. It also was sometimes distributed under the Alcatel label. It was sold in a brown suitcase so you could carry it easily and anywhere. In the upper part of the suitcase is stored the lightgun. The buttons are very original and very cool to press (hehe, you can't imagine the feeling...). You can use the magnets sold with the system to keep the score by placing them on the sides of the metallic panel where numbered squares are drawned. It is quite difficul...
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...

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.

Was this only released in Japan or was it released in America also?
