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".

UNIVOX 41N
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...

NOVOTON TJ-141
A french pong system which uses the GI AY-3-8500 chip, thus playing the 4 basic pong games. No shooting games here... It is the same pong as the Alex Video Spiel TG-621 or the Conic TV Sports TG-621. Read these entries for more info. ________ Thanks to CS2010 for the picture....
HANIMEX  666
This is a handheld pong. The biggest paddle includes the system hardware. The second one wich is smaller (1/3 of the system size) is attached to the first one but can be detached. Thus, this is a real portable and easy to carry pong system. The 666s and 666t seem to be similar in every ways apart from their color: the 666s is blue while the 666t is green. Note that there is a french version of the 666s called the 666s-p (P for PAL ?) while the 666s-n is the eng...
SANDS 3000
Little is known about this small pong system made in Hong Kong. It seems to be a classic pong system with 4 pong games. Games selection is made through a small dial in the middle of the case. Switches are used to choose different functions. The two controllers (sliders) are detachable. ________ Contributors : Grant Meredith...
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...
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)....
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...
ATARI  PONG (Model C-100)
As early as 1974, Atari started to design a home version of PONG, originally proposed by Harold Lee in 1973. The system was designed by three engineers: Harold Lee, Alan Alcorn and Bob Brown. Because Magnavox Odyssey was already being left behind by customers (mostly due to their lack of satisfaction, and also the bad rumor that it would only work with a Magnavox TV set), sellers were not attracted by Atari's PONG game until Sears goes ahead and sells the system under their Tele-Games label f...
BINATONE Colour TV Game 4 plus 2 (model n░ 01 / 4850)
This pong is one of the many Binatone systems. As its name indicates, it offers 6 games : 4 pong games (squash, squash practise, 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 TV master se...
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....
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...

"On the black version, the controllers are two big dials, whereas on the wooden model, the controllers are two vertical sliders..."
Mine was a black SC Eight Thousand with two controllers, but these had vertical sliders, not dials, just as the ones seen in this picture of a black four-controller version:

Hi, I''ve jsut bought one of these on Ebay (I had one as a child) but whilst I can hear it start up and play, I can''t get anything on the tv screen - despite re-tuning the tv. Any ideas please? It should still work on a modern tv shouldn''t it? Cheers....
