This is a handheld pong! Everything is contained in one handheld controller. The second controller can be mounted onto the main one, or detaches (it has a 2' cord). The system has an attached RF cable (no switchbox).
This particular model comes with a pistol for use with target games, which has its own cord and plugs into the main unit at the top.
There are two different models. One with 4 pong games, and another one with 2 additional shooting games sold with a lightgun. For this reason, there are two different types of boxes (see pictures section). There were also two different coloured models, there was the white with black print and black with write print.
I didn''t have this model - I had one that had control levers - mounted on separate rectangular controllers - 3 or 4 games - Pong - Double-Pong? - Hockey - and Soccer? - in some ways it seems better - more advanced than this - but I know I got it for Christmas in the late 70''s (77?) and it cost under $20 - which was the family limit for Christmas gifts - I know most people would think we were poor - but I knew other people who got less or nothing, and I never felt bad about getting less than most of my neighbors. I learned to play pong with myself - left hand versus right - full English - fastest speed - in my family, this was the toughest opponent I could find.
