I just got one of these, CIB for about $35 ($44 after shipping) on ebay, and I like it. The look of the console is neat, (and its HUGE, it dwarfs my Xbox!) The Controllers are well made and responsive (Although I don''t care for the hardwired nature of them, but it was a common practice), and quite a few games on there are actually pretty fun, I particularly enjoy Kc''s Krazy chase, and Dynasty, as well as UFO! plus, boxed games are some of the easiest and cheapest to find for any vintage console, even The Atari 2600 isn''t this easy of cheap when it comes to finding CIB games (And it''s loose games are the cheapest of any game console!)!

All in all, its a fun underdog console both from a collecting and gaming stand point.

I was about 12 or so when these first made an appearance. The cool kids got an Atari VCS, the kids (or parents) who were into sports got an Intellivision, and the nerdy kids whose parents wanted them to learn about computers got the O2.

At the time the O2 was a distant 3rd-place, but it does have a retro charm to it. $$65279$

In Brazil Odyssey2 was released as Philips Odyssey (with no mention to the "2") in the early 80´s.
It was the major Atari VCS2600 competitor, but although it looked somewhat more advanced, I and the majority of the kids of that time preferred the old VCS just because it offered a zillion more game titles than Odyssey.
