This is a real funky french pong system! It is orange and very round in shape. It doesn't look like any other pong system ! Its two round paddles are also quite unsual. They are identical to those of the OC5000 sytem.
This system includes the AY-3-8610 chipset from General Instruments. That explains why there are joysticks instead of simple sliders, since with this chip, you can move your paddle horizontally and vertically (whereas with the more comme AY-3-8500, you could only move it vertically).
The system offers 8 games, hence its name (TV8 Sports). The two shooting games of the AY-3-8610 are simply not implemented on this system.
We need more info about this pong ! 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.).
This was also sold in France by an obscure company called Galaxica. While The Sauft Leclanché was in orange, the Galaxica is in off-white. Also the paddle knobs of the Galaxica are slightly different. Pictures can be seen on my website.
