Philips Videopac G7200

I've always wanted a Philips Videopac G7200, even though I always knew this bit of retro gaming tech can be far too expensive to both grab and ship. Take this Philips Videopac G7200 auction for example: the bidding starts at £600 and the seller ships only within the UK. Then again, the lucky winner will be getting the console boxed and complete with two controllers, manual, a game, a poster of the available games and them coveted poly inserts.

The Videopac G7200 is the computerised version of the G7000 (Odyssey II) and sports a lovely black-and-white monitor and, obviously, a keyboard.

  1. I've never heard of this thing before. Being in The Netherlands, I'll keep a good look out for it in the future.

    1. You will most probably discover one. I do distinctly remember seeing a G7200 in a small Amsterdam retro-shop only three or so years ago.

  2. The most beautiful console ever made.... Got one in near mint condition without box on Marktplaats last year. The Netherlands is actually one of the better places to find one. It was made by Philips and it found its way to many employees back in the days since it was too expensive for the masses.

  3. Oh, and try Ebay.fr There's tons of them there since it was built in France.
