Philips Videopac G7000 (Magnavox Odyssey 2)

This is another interesting machine I picked up a little while ago but hadn’t gotten around to updating the website.

This console/computer was released in 1978 and was named the Magnavox Odyssey 2 other in the USA (They got a much cooler name!). Many people refer to this as a console, but with it having a full qwerty keyboard and its own programming language, surely it’s a computer? Although the keyboard is absolutely awful so full respect goes to anyone that actually wrote a program for this thing using the assembler cartridge.

The system came in its original box which is in pretty nice condition, along with a selection of games to keep me entertained for a few minutes. The system itself is also in very good condition and seems to be working perfectly. Such a strange design!
