If you are looking for something well and truly obscure look no further than this View Master Interactive Vision console (of sorts) that recently appeared on eBay. And it's the complete thing too, coming in its original box with all the required bits and the VHS tape/game Disney's Cartoon Arcade. Seller is only shipping within the United States.
As for the console itself, it is a properly odd thing that utilizes a VCR and offers a quasi-interactive, FMV-like experience mainly focused on kids; as an added bonus it looks utterly unique and not unlike a toy.

A console is only as good as its games, and Nintendo has always been a company to fully understand this simple truth. Case in point: the Nintendo 64. An offering that felt a bit behind the time, but one that managed to provide with an amazing selection of exquisitely aged classics.
Interestingly some of the best (and best know) of said classic cartridges come bundled with a console, 2 controllers and the Expansion Pack in this lovely (NTSC) Nintendo 64 auction. As for the games, well, there's 11 of them including Super Mario 64, Goldeneye, Star Fox 64, Super Smash Bros, Mario Kart, Zelda: Majora's Mask, Ocarina of Time and Banjo-Kazooie.
Seller ships to the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Denmark, Romania, Slovakia, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Finland, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Estonia, Australia, Greece, Portugal, Cyprus, Slovenia, Japan, China, Sweden, Korea, South, Indonesia, Taiwan, South Africa, Thailand, Belgium, France, Hong Kong, Ireland, Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Italy, Germany, Austria, Israel, Mexico, New Zealand and Singapore.

One lovely, boxed CompuMate home computer expansion/keyboard thingy by Spectravideo and 20 sealed games (mostly copies of Berzerk, admittedly) for the venerable Atari 2600 console can be your via this eBay auction. Provided you have a US address, that is.
Oh, and did you know that the CompuMate, besides offering a membrane keyboard, also allows you to connect a tape recorder to your console in order to store and read data? Well, it does, and even comes with a built-in version of BASIC, a music synthesizer app and a drawing program.
