Epoch
TV Baseball

The Epoch TV Baseball is an early japanese video-game released in 1978. It is a stand-alone system, as it can play only one game: baseball!

Indeed, baseball has always been very popular in Japan. It was logic that it inspired first videogames there.

The game can be played by two players, one launching the ball and the other manipulating the bat. There is a detachable controller with only one fire button, and all the other controls are on the system itself.

It is interesting to note that this baseball game is apparently the same (?) found on cartridge for the Epoch Cassette Vision.

We need more info about this console ! If you designed, used, or have more info about this system, please send us pictures or anything you might find useful.
Please consider donating your old computer / videogame system to Old-Computers.com or one of our partners from anywhere in the world (Europe, America, Asia, etc.).


 

I recently got a boxed copy of this system, its in pretty good condition though quite dirty but an easy job with some soppy water.

Just wanted to tell you that the my copy still has the price tag on its ¥18,500 (¥29,298 with inflation) for the main system (that i got), the system uses 4 D-cell battery''s but the label also states you can buy a AC adapter (plugs in in the back) for an extra ¥1,500 back in 1978.

Hopes this helps someone!
