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". 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".

The Univox 41N is a classic pong system sold in France. It can also be found worldwide under many different brands, as the Grandstand T.V. 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. The system itself seems to have been made in Korea. The electronic board is labeled "F'GAMATIC-7600". Indeed many Gamatic 7600 systems identi...
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...
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...
SOCI╔T╔ OCCITANE D'ELECTRONIQUE OC 6000
Apart from the chipset, this pong is 100% French made, with an original design. The name 6000 must be because of the AY-3-8600 chipset used in this pong, as the OC-5000 must be named after its GI AY-3-8500 chipset. The paddles are fairly simple...round and cute with analog joysticks. The cosmetic design in general is very typical of late 70's french productions... Although the OC 6000 was released after the OC 5000...
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....
AUDIOSONIC PP-800
Hehe, this one is tweetie's personnal pong... This pong is identical in shape to many others european pong of that time. ...
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...
SCHNEIDER (PHILIPS) Telelude
Just a cool designed pong system from Schneider with weird controllers. This is a clone of the Videojeu N20 from Philips. As Philips owned Schneider at that time, they produced identical systems under their own brand (same for Videopac systems for example). Whereas the Philips N20 is white, the Schneider Telelude is brown....
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...
HANIMEX  7771
A classic european pong made in Honk-Kong and sold under many brands through Europe. The Hanimex 7771G is exactly the same system (even internally) as the 7771, but it enables the two shooting games initially offered by the AY-3-8500 chipset, by providing a lightgun and its connector. This means that the 7771 "could" play the shooting games, but hardware was not implemented in it. This was a common marketing strategy at the time, in order to propose a range of systems at minimal cost. ...
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...

PRINZTRONIC Videosport 600
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.
