    Hey, great page I’ve never seen most of these. Thanks for the pics – I’m going to make a collage out of them on my 70s video games page. It’s very easy because they have a white background! 🙂

    I have a old Ping Pong game consoles that I’ve tried to find any information about. On the front it only says MASH and it uses cartridge where you can choose 8 games (no color), where it only have 1 line each side and a ball that moves around the TV. Any ideas?

    Needs more wood paneling.

    On that note, I grew up with an Atari 2600, since my folks owned one. I still have nightmares about ET the video game.
