SOCIÉTÉ OCCITANE D'ELECTRONIQUE  Société Occitane d'Electronique
OC 5000

Apart from the chipset, this pong is 100% French made, with an original design. The name 5000 must be because of the AY-3-8500 chipset used in this pong, as the OC-6000 must be named after its GI AY-3-8600 chipset.

The paddles are fairly simple...round and cute. The cosmetic design in general is very typical of late 70's french productions...

This pong is equiped with a robot function that allows the player to play against the system. You can even adjust the skill level of opposition with a knob, from 0 (always miss the ball) to 100 % (never miss the ball).

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 or one of our partners from anywhere in the world (Europe, America, Asia, etc.).



I find it ! The first console I have ever played with ! I was six at this time, but i can remember it with precision. And one thing I remember is that the light gun newer worked. I was wondering if this gun was only a gadget never designed to work or if it was just a disfunction of the console (maybe the link between the gun and the console ?).

btw, I am so happy to have found it :)
