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 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...

NEC  CoreGrafx II
Exactly the same as the CoreGrafx apart from a redesigned case. Taneli Lukka from Finland comments: Core II is the console where NEC's PCE department seems to lose their heads. There just are no explanations why it was released shortly after Core I. As a whole NEC's game console business is a horrible mess. The original PCE, Core I, Core II and two diffirent CD-Rom drives seem to have been manufactured side by side. New mode...
TELE-PARTNER Giochi Televisivi (Mod. G)
The Tele-Partner is an hybrid video-game, something between a classic pong system and a more advanced console since it does not only play classic pong games (tennis, soccer, squash & practice) but also two shooting games (via a light-gun) and four motor-cycle games (drag race, stunt cycle, motor cross, enduro). Conceived in Hong-Kong, it was sold by Tele-Partner in Italy. It uses the same plastic case as many other europeans systems of that time. With its 10 games, this must be one of the mos...
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...
SEGA Wondermega
The Wondermega was released in 1992 as a joint development by Sega and JVC. It is similar to the Multi-Mega, being a combination of a Mega Drive and Mega CD, but with the added ability to function as a karaoke machine and improved sound thanks to JVC's new DSP. The system shipped with four karaoke programs and a compilation CD of four games. Two microphones can be connected to the system so users can sing along with CDs, or, thanks to a button on the machine...
NEC  PC Engine Duo
The launch of the PC Engine Duo in 1991 marked the beginning of a new era in the console world. Containing a PC Engine and a Super CD-ROM² unit which were unified in a single case, along with the Super System Card integrated on the motherboard, it was the first stand alone console able to play CD-ROM games. Like its predecessor the PC Engine, the Duo was very popular in Japan, selling well and establishing a large fan base. With the same internal hard...
ROLLET Video Secam System (4/303)
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 hardwired controllers with one analog joystick and one fire button each. The control panel is composed of 10 orange buttons to select the different games offered by each cartridge (10 being the maximum). Dif...
MBO Tele-Ball VIII
The Tele-Ball VIII is one of the many Tele-Ball systems from MBO (a famous electronic german brand from Munich), though this particular model is one of the last (maybe the last) from the range. Early Tele-Ball systems were pure pong machines, whereas the Tele-Ball VIII offers 4 pong games (tennis, soccer, squash, practice), 2 shooting games and 2 car racing games thanks to its F-4301 chipset from Universal Research Labs. Of course these car racing games were the main marketing asset of the Te...
T.R.Q. (TALLERES RADIOELÉCTRICOS QUEROL) H-21 Video Computer
Few information is known about this obscure system... It is software compatible with the Interton VC-4000 and "clones". This doesn't mean that it can use the Interton cartridges, as they certainly won't fit, but the internal specs and software are the same. The CPU is the 2650A from Signetics and the Video Controller is the 2636 from Signetics as well. About 40 cartridges has been released for the Interton VC-4000, but we can't tell how many were availabl...
SEGA Master System III
The Master System III was released in 2003 by Brazilian toy manufacturer Tec Toy. It is exclusive to the Brazilian market where it is still a popular system. Externally the console is the same as the Master System II apart from the colour, which is a very light grey instead of being dark grey. In fact the Master System III is still on sale to this day. The current version, Master System 3 - 120 Super Jogos Na Memória, comes with 120 games built in....
BANDAI Pippin @World
The Pippin @World (black model) is the US version of the Pippin Atmark (white model), which was sold in Japan. Apart from the different colored case, both systems are identical. In the early 90's, several companies tried to market videogame systems based on their computers' technology as those were not selling as much as they should have to. Apple was one of them and designed the Pippin upon the hardware of their second generation Macintosh, like Commodore did with their CD32 based on the Ami...

CONTINENTAL EDISON / SABA Ordinateur Video Jeu JO 1450 (JOPAC)
Kind of looks like an Odyssey 2 that happened to be ran over by a steamroller. I wonder if it''s also compatible with that console''s games as well.

As a keen collector and fan of this system, I have produced a fair number of video''s about the GX4000.

VOLTMACE Database Games-Computer
Awesome. Had this as a nipper in the 80s. Lived near Baldock so might explain why! I remember going to a local games "shop" / voltmace merchant (swear it was someones garage or house extension) and there was always the one shifty database title amongst the vast array of sexier looking atari 2600 games. I wasn''t interested in hearing any "compatibility" nonsence - i just wanted the spiderman game with green goblin on the box (it was packaging perfection ). Were voltmace and all the other UK cart machines 2600 inspired / direct clones anyway?

SEGA Master System II
Never liked the controller for the Master System. The D-pad felt way too imprecise and mushy for my liking, and the buttons just didn''t feel good when you pressed down on them. Thankfully, you can use a regular Genesis controller instead.

ATARI  VCS 2600
Have you played Atari today??? If not, then you should stop what you''re doing right now and fire one of these bad boys up.
