B > BINATONE > TV Master MK 6 (model n° 01 / 4907)   

TV Master MK 6 (model n° 01 / 4907)

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 TV master serie are black & white pongs (first generation). The TV Master MK 6 system is the same as the TV Master 4 plus 2 except that the light gun is included in the MK 6 package while it is only optional for the TV Master 4 Plus 2 (you had to buy it separately). Same marketing strategy for the Color TV Game 4 plus 2 and Color TV Game MK 6.

The two shooting games (and thus the lightgun) are also the only difference between the TV Master MK 6 and TV Master MK IV. And the TV Master MK 6 is the same as the Colour TV Game MK 6, except that the latter offer games in colour.

So how to differentiate a TV Master MK 6 from a Colour TV Game MK 6 ? Well first, the name... ;-) The underside and switches of the former are orange while those of the Colour TV Game are grey. The Colour TV Game has also a small 'colour' logo next to its name (upper right), which the TV Master has not.

The paddles are rather small, with one knob each, but are detachable and connected to the system through two small sockets. One interesting feature is that there is a switch to turn sound on / off (great !).

Please consider donating your old computer / videogame system to or one of our partners from anywhere in the world (Europe, America, Asia, etc.).
