MAGNAVOX Odyssey 2000
The Odyssey 2000, released in 1977, is almost an Odyssey 300 with one more game (practice, for one player). In fact, and as opposed to previous Magnavox Odyssey systems (except the Odyssey 300), the Odyssey 2000 uses the famous AY-3-8500 chipset from General Instruments. This chip offers 4 black & white pong games: Tennis, Hockey, squash (here called Smash) and Practice (squash for 1 player)....
MAGNAVOX Odyssey 500
The Odyssey 500 was released in 1976, and was very advanced for that time considering the technology used. It was in fact the only system of its kind. As a matter of fact, the white paddles representing the players were replaced by simple color graphics: two tennis players with their rackets (TENNIS game), two squash players (SMASH & SOCCER?), or two hockey players holding their sticks (HOCKEY). On the control panel, one can find two switches: one to select the playfield (a wall on the left, ...
MAGNAVOX Odyssey 400
In 1976, Magnavox released the Odyssey 400. It played the same games as the Odyssey 200 and used an additional Texas Instruments chip to display digital on-screen scoring (it was the first Odyssey system to display digital on-screen scoring). On-screen scoring was quite well designed. As a matter of fact, the scores were large and were only shown when the ball was lost, and a large 'W' letter was displayed on the winner's side when the games were over. L...
MAGNAVOX Odyssey 300
After both Atari and Magnavox released their first pong systems (Odyssey 100, Odyssey 200, Pong) in 1975, Magnavox continued with the Odyssey 300 in 1976, which was one of the first system to use a single game chip containing the major circuitry of a PONG system. This system was Magnavox' answer to Coleco Telstar, the first game to use the GI A...
ATARI  Ultra Pong Doubles (Model C-402)
Ultra Pong Doubles was the ultimate pong console released by Atari (in 1977). It offers 16 pong games (32 variations) mainly based on original pong and hockey games, for 2 to 4 players! DESCRIPTION The plastic case show only one button which acts a Game Select and Reset. There is also a power on/off switch, but that's all for the interaction. The list of the 16 games along with their screenshots are printed on the case front. On the rear side, one can spot an external power su...

NINTENDO TV-Game 6 (model CTG-6V)
An early pong system from Nintendo offering 6 pong games in colour. This is in fact the first home video game system produced by Nintendo. As they lacked the technology to develop their own microprocessors, they struck a deal with Mitsubishi Electronics and the two companies developed the Color TV Game 6 in 1977. It was a big success in Japan, and sold over a million copies. The system is fairly simple. Two dial controllers built-in the system, so two players can play simultaneously. Some swi...

This chip offers 4 black & white pong games: Tennis, Hockey, squash (here called Smash) and Practice (squash for 1 player)....
MBO Tele-Ball II
This is a nice looking system from MBO, a famous electronic brand from Munich. It doesn't look at all like the other pongs. An original shape for both the unit (quite triangular in depth) and the remote controllers which are largely curved. The best part is that it has absolutely no switch, only buttons to select the different options. This system was sold in Germany as all the texts on the box are in german. It is a classic pong system which uses the GI AY-3-8500 chipset, thus playing the 4 ...
KÖRTING Tele-Multiplay 6000
This German pong offers 4 ball games and 2 shooting games thanks to its TMS-1965 Texas-Instruments chipset. Paddles can be moved verticaly with the sliders found on each controllers. There are also apparently two dials/knobs on these controllers. The case of the system looks much like the Palladium Tele-Play SR one. It's quite possible that Körting sold a Palladium pong under its own brand. The latter Körting Tele-Mul...
BLAUPUNKT TV-Action
The Blaupunkt TV-Action pong console is one of the few video games system not to use a standard TV Video output. This way, the TV-Action is only compliant with a short range of TV, all designed and created by Blaupunkt : Jamaica, Riviera, Nevada and Columbia series. Some other companies, such as Grundig, had the same politic and created some system that were only compliant with their own brand’s TV sets. It’s important to notice that, on this system, no external power supply is required, as i...

COLECO  Telstar Marksman
After the release of the first Telstar (the first "dedicated-chip" pong system) in 1976 which was a big success, Coleco conceived a whole range of pongs. The focus of the Marskman is made on its gun and shooting games, though the system in itself is not very different from the other pongs of that time. Basicaly it is a Telstar Colortron with two shooting games. The system is powered by the General Instrument AY-3-8...
SOCIÉTÉ OCCITANE D'ELECTRONIQUE OC 4
The OC 4 is a nice and funky handheld pong produced by the French company, Société Occitane d'Electronique. Like most pong systems of its time, it uses the General Instruments AY-3-8500 chipset, which offers 4 paddle games + 2 shooting games not implemented here as there is no connector for a light gun. Each player hold one of the paddle. Player 1 paddle holds all the main electronic of the system and this is where game selection and options are operated. The other paddle (player 2), holds...
SANDS 3000
Little is known about this small pong system made in Hong Kong. It seems to be a classic pong system with 4 pong games. Games selection is made through a small dial in the middle of the case. Switches are used to choose different functions. The two controllers (sliders) are detachable. ________ Contributors : Grant Meredith...
A10 Telespiel 9010
One more system which looks like the Markint 4A system or the Novoton Video-Sports. It is in fact a classic pong system powered by the AY-3-8500 chipset and thus offering 4 different games (Tennis, Hockey, Squash and Handball). The system is very large. The middle part looks like a common system but it feels like two additional parts (colored differently) had been added on each side. The paddles can be inserted in these parts which allows the players to p...

ATARI  SUPER PONG (Model C-140)
I love this system. I got mine from deep in the basement in 2015 and I LOVE this thing! Its a real classic. The power cable is broken so I have to use the batteries but it has a surprisingly good battery life. All in all this is a solid system.

GAMATIC 7600
Hi I have one of these lovely old consoles.

It was in a very sorry state when I got it, but its been cleaned up, resoldered where required and broken parts fixed.

It works really well and its just so refreshing to to play a simple yet addictive game of pong.

"On the black version, the controllers are two big dials, whereas on the wooden model, the controllers are two vertical sliders..."
Mine was a black SC Eight Thousand with two controllers, but these had vertical sliders, not dials, just as the ones seen in this picture of a black four-controller version:
