Philips Videopac G7000

Philips Videopac g7000The Videopac G7000 by Philips (a.k.a. Magnavox Odyssey 2) was released back in 1978 and was rather successful in Europe -especially in Holland- and Brazil. Find out more about this lovely 8-bit console over at Old-Computers.com, Wikipedia and this place. Apparently the Odyssey 2 Homepage might be of interest too.

For a chance at such a glorious console, do try this Videopac G7000 eBay auction that comes complete with all the cables, 2 joysticks and a few games. Seller ships worldwide. The Videopac G7000 usually sells for 10£, 19$ or 13 euros.

  8. Wow - you do a Google search for your name, and you never know what you will find. I am Greg Paula, and two anonymous posters here have mentioned playing the Odyssey 2 with me. I did indeed have an one. (I have it no longer, sadly.) Though it was never huge (at least in America), it was clearly superior to the Atari 2600, which was its rival at the time.
