APF M1000 / MP1000
The APF M1000 was released in 1978. It's a Video game system cart based, comes with 2 non-detachables joysticks with a numeric keypad on each ones (look likes a mini-calculator with a joystick), has "Reset" & "Power" buttons on the unit. Only could be played on a Color TV only. This system seems to have been the pack-in unit with Imagination Machine. The APF MP1000 was released in 1978. This system is basically the same as the M1000 model and both syste...
SOUNDIC SD-290 Programmable Colour Video Game
Though different in shape, the Soundic SD-290 is internaly the same system as the Rollet Video-Color, the Hanimex HMG-7900 and the Soundicvision SD-200. This SD-290 model was sold worldwide through different brands (in France for example by ITMC and JouÚClub)... All these systems were surely produced by Soundic in Hong-Kong as they have code-names like "SD-2xx" (where SD would mea...
ATARI  Stunt Cycle (model SC-450)
The following description comes from www.atariHQ.com website, especially the Stunt Cycle dedicated page : "Considered by many collectors as the coolest of the dedicated (non-cartridge) Atari home consoles, Stunt Cycle allowed aspiring Evel Knievel wannabes the joy of performing knarly stunts -- without the risk of breaking one's neck. Tons of tricks to pull off he...
VICTOR V-Saturn
This version of the Saturn was produced by Victor (better known in the U.S. and Europe as JVC) under licence from Sega. It is functionaly identicle to the Sega version of the console, the only change is a different splash screen when the console is switched on. There are two different versions of the V-Saturn: V-Saturn (RG-JX1): This is the first version, released on November 22nd 1994. The top half is grey and the bottom half is black. It has oval bu...
SAMSUNG Saturn
This version of the Saturn was produced by Samsung under licence from Sega exclusively for the Korean market. Unusually for the Saturn there seems to only one version of this particular console (SPC-ST2). It features a stange mix of components from the different versions of the Saturn available elswhere. The case is of the early oval buttoned type but uses the motherboard from the newer round buttoned type, resulting in some strange characteristics. For ...
HANIMEX  SD 070 Colour (programmable TV-game console)
This is a typical system using catridges based on the different chipsets developped by General Instruments in the late 70s. Each GI chips was able to generate several games, ball games for a start, then later car racing, motorcycle, submarines, tanks and shooting games. The system has two detachable controllers with one analog joystick and one fire button each. The control panel is composed of 10 buttons to select the different games offered by each cartridge (10 being the maximum). Difficult...
SEGA SG-1000 Mark II
Very similar to the SG-1000, the SG-1000 Mark II was just a minor update consisting mainly of cosmetic changes. The case was redesigned and the joysticks of the Mark I were replaced by joypads which could be stored in built-in holders located on either side of the console. There was also built-in port where a keyboard could be attached, effectively turning the console into a computer. However, the Mark II was still outsold by it's computer counterpart, t...
SNK Neo Geo Pocket Color
Following the surprise withdrawal of the Neo Geo Pocket, SNK immediately launched the Neo Geo Pocket Color (NGPC). The NGPC was available in six different colours. Internally the hardware was almost identical to the earlier Neo Geo Pocket, but now featured a colour display. Again SNK released ports of their arcade games, but the most notable game must surely be Sonic The Hedgehog - Pocket Adventure, which was the first ever Sonic game to be released...
SNK Neo Geo Pocket
Released towards the end of 1998 in Japan, the Neo Geo Pocket was yet another challenger to Nintendo's Game Boy. The Neo Geo Pocket had great battery life (even the Pocket Color managed around 40 hours from just two batteries!), an area where so many Game Boy competitors had failed, and a number of SNK's popular arcade games appeared on the system. But the sales figures were lower than SNK were expecting and the machine was discontinued after just a few months, only to be immediately rep...
COMMODORE  Amiga CD32
In a last ditch attempt to get a foothold in the lucrative console market Commodore launched the Amiga CD32. After their previous effort with the C64 GS failed and the strange decision to advertise the Amiga 600 as a games machine that could be used as a computer it was vital that the CD32 succeeded. The CD32 is notable for being the first 32 bit CD-ROM based console ever released (the Pla...

NINTENDO Super Famicom
Nintendo's follow up the NES arrived 1990. Bundled with the classic Super Mario World the console proved an instant hit in Japan, selling out within hours and going on to outsell Sega's Mega Drive. Between them the Super Famicom and SNES acheived combined sales of almost 50 million units world-wide. With well over 750 games released, owners certainly had plenty of choice. One of...
SOUNDIC Soundicvision SD-200
The Soundic SD-200 is a low-range console with rather simplistic games. It was released around 1983. It is one of these cheap systems produced in Asia for people not able to buy more expensive systems of that time. The Soundicvision is exactly the same system as the Hanimex HMG-7900, and though different in shape, is internaly the same system as the Rollet Video-Color and the ITMC SD-...
APF M1000 / MP1000
The APF M1000 was released in 1978. It's a Video game system cart based, comes with 2 non-detachables joysticks with a numeric keypad on each ones (look likes a mini-calculator with a joystick), has "Reset" & "Power" buttons on the unit. Only could be played on a Color TV only. This system seems to have been the pack-in unit with Imagination Machine. The APF MP1000 was released in 1978. This system is basically the same as the M1000 model and both syste...
WORLD BOOK Tutor Vision
In 1989, INTV Corp. signed a joint business deal with World Book Encyclopedia to manufacture the Tutorvision. The Tutorvision was basically just a modified version of the original Intellivision Master Console except it's exterior was gold coloured, the buttons on the keypad are bubble-style and not flat like the INTV III version, it featured a power-on LED, the original two circuit boards were now merged into one with the chips all dated 1988-90, and the lo...
EPOCH TV Block
This funky pong is the japanese version of the Atari Video Pinball C-380 (and the Sears Pinball Breakaway). It plays seven games: Flipper pinball 1, Flipper pinball 2, Racket pinball 1, Racket pinball 2, Basketball 1, Basketball 2 and Breakout. All these games are in fact improved pong games. All the games are controlled by the big white dial placed on the right part of the system, except the two flipper pinball games which must be played with the two...
BANDAI WonderSwan
The WonderSwan was developed by Yokoi Gunpei (known as the father of the Nintendo Game Boy). A low price point and extremely low battery consumption is considered to be the original vision of Yokoi. Sadly, Yokoi died in a car accident before seeing a completed WonderSwan. Most of the games for the WonderSwan were based on Japanese Anime series. The system had no success outside of the Japanese domestic market, mainly beacause it was not ditributed and marketed efficiently. One of the system'...
NEC  PC-FX
With the innovative design and power of the PC-FX, the face of videogaming has changed. Sporting a 32-BIT V810 processor, millions of colors, and one of the highest quality FMV in any home video game system, the PC-FX is definitely the system to get your hands on for some great gaming excitement. It all started with the joint collaboration of NEC Home Electronics and Hudson Soft of Japan that spawned the PC-FX on December 23, 1994... The PC-FX is one of the most unique video game systems ...
WORLDS OF WONDER Action Max
Action Max from Worlds of Wonder (WoW), released in the US in 1987, was a unique, if simple and ultimately unimpressive game system that used special pre-recorded VHS video tapes for software. The original package came bundled with the base unit, light gun, television sensor, headphones, connection cables, documentation and one game, "Sonic Fury". Batteries or a power supply were not included. After connecting the components to the base unit and the base unit to any standard VCR, the player i...
SEGA Nomad
Released in Japan and the United States towards the end of the Mega Drive's life, the Nomad was basically a handheld version of the popular home console. No games were ever specifically created for the Nomad, limiting it to the back catalogue of the Mega Drive. Not that this was really a problem, as by this time there was already a significant number games available. However, due to the power requirements of the Mega Drive hardware and the backlit 3.25" L...
MISC Arcade video games
Arcade video games have always played a major role in video games history. Technologicaly in advance upon home video game systems, they have inspired generations of game developers. Indeed most of the computer/consoles game library was directly copied from Arcade games. At least until the 90's when home systems began to match arcade systems performances. This was the beginning of the end for the Arcades....

NINTENDO Nintendo 64
The description here is very biased and makes it sound as though the N64 was a complete flop. Actually it was very popular, selling almost 33 million units and had a game library of almost 400 games.
The durability and speed of carts and the fact that with the speed of the N64''s cpu you could compress well over 64 megs of data to a cart made it far from a failure.

This is a great site, but a terrible description. Also btw what the heck is up with the first paragraph about the name change? They changed the name, so what, and you could later get ports of those games for the N64. Get someone less biased to rewrite this description. (and keep up the otherwise fantastic work)

ATARI  VCS 2600
I had a Sears version of the 2600. Sears actually sold the same unit under their own name. I found that if I pulled out the cartridge just a tiny bit and re$ed it again very quickly, It would sometimes go into a weird mutated version of a game. Very strange things would happen. I mainly remember doing this with the original Battleship game. I have many fond memories and have often considered buying one of those Atari "Flashback" consoles.

I picked up one of the "Darth Vader" systems with 6 games all cables and a controller for 30 $ and I can say it was well worth it. Too bad on of the games was E.T. the extraterrestrial...
