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 JouéClub)... 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 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...
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...
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...
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...

KÖRTING Tele-Video-Computer TVC 4000
The Körting TVC-4000 is an exact copy of the more popular Interton VC-4000 system.See this entry for more info....
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...
Vectrex is one of the most inspired video game machines ever produced. Its point of distinction is the fact that it uses vector "line" graphics (as opposed to raster "pixel" graphics). This is the same type of screen used in such arcade classics as Space Wars, Asteroids, Battlezone and Tempest. The machine has a 9 x 11 inch black and white screen and comes with a built-in Asteroids clone called Minestorm. The games come with plastic overlays that slide over the screen to cut down on flicke...
NEC  TurboGrafx-16/Turbografx
Released in 1989, the TurboGrafx-16 was the American name for the PC Engine. Originally marketed as a competitor for the NES, it sold well initially, but never achieved the same success the PC Engine enjoyed in Japan. Games for the TG-16 came on credit card sized TurboChips, similar to the cards that could be used on the original Master System. TG-16 games have a distinct s...
GOLDSTAR 3DO Interactive Multiplayer
3DO Interactive Multiplayer is the name of a number of video game consoles released in 1993 and 1994 by Panasonic, Sanyo and Goldstar. The consoles were manufactured according to specifications created by The 3DO Company which were originally designed at the New Technology Group (which later became part of the 3DO Company) by Dave Needle and RJ Mical. After leaving EA Games, Trip Hawkins originally came up with the idea of the 3DO Multiplayer system. The consoles had very advanced hard...
What a weird system we have here! This must be one of the rarest and most original consoles ever produced. It only plays one game: Star Chess, a version of chess which takes place in space, for two players. The system itself looks like a box with a transparent plastic cover, revealing four silver controllers stored into the plastic case. Actually, only two of the silver oblongs are real controllers, attached by extendable wires to the console for 2 players. Another silver oblong opens out in...
The Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) was released in Japan in 1983 under the name Famicom. This was short for Family Computer. Hundreds of games were produced for the system and it sold very well. It had one of the most unique accessories too; R.O.B (Robotic Operating Buddy). It was controlled by flashes from the screen generated by the game itself. It couldn't do much except move around some discs from one platform to another. It was popular because it was something d...
EPOCH Super Cassette Vision
This nice system was built in Japan by EPOCH and sold in europe (mostly and maybe only in France, where it was distributed by the well known pong vendor ITMC) under the YENO brand. Successor of the Cassette Vision (1981) and Cassette Vision Jr (1983), units that never hit the european market, the Super Cassette Vision system was an unsuccessfull competitor of the Nintendo Famicom in Japan. In France, on the other hand...
INTERVISION 3001 - Home Video Centre
The Intervision 3001 is one of the many systems "software-compatible" with the Emerson Arcadia 2001. It is almost the same system as the Intervision 2001. In fact the differences are not yet known (help welcome!). Must be minor internal changes or strategic commercial decisions to use 3001 instead of 2001... This remains a mystery until now. Though the 3001 is entirely compatible with the 2001 (can use the same cartridges), some games were specificaly ...
COLECO  Gemini
The Coleco Gemini, not to be confused with the Telstar Gemini system released by the same manufacturer in 1978, is a clone of the Atari VCS 2600. It offers the exact same functionalities as the Atari system. Six switches : color/b&w display, on/off, left player difficulty A/B, right player difficulty A/B, Game Select and Reset. Apart from the plastic case, only the controllers differ from the original system. Colec...

ROWTRON Television Computer System
Just confirming that I wasn''t crazy remembering I got one of these in 1979: here''s an ad from the shop I bought it from in Basingstoke, dated Dec 1979.

Are those controllers wireless? Or is it just the picture?

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...

ATARI  Jaguar
No claim was ever made by Atari that the system was completely 64 bits across. This was the big contention that had people complaining about the ''bitness'' of the machine. It had the OPL((Object Processor Logic) not the POP) and the Blitter Chip, which were fully 64 bits across and used the fully 64 bit data bus of the system. The GPU core was a 32 bit RISC processor as was the DSP core, neither of which had any reason to be 64 bits wide. The idea was to use the GPU core to command the 64 bit parts. Unfortunately all too many developers used the 16 68k processor and choke the daylights out of the performance, hence the 16 bit looking games for the most part. The power was certainly there but the tools and the support were not. I believe there were at least 70 games plus not to mention numerous homebrews...which are still being made today.

VOLTMACE Database Games-Computer
I Have a fully restored Voltmace that powers on but as I have no games I have no idea if it actually works! Was very grubby when I got it but now it looks great.
Anyone got a few games spare?!! :)
