    Just wondering if anyone had seen this console before and i thought as there are quite a few people with large games collections they may be interested.

    It may be one of these cheapy deals you get on markets.
    Like those ones that brag "over 100 games!" but it's really just 10 games renamed many times. I've got a few mates that in the past came accross this in their dissapointing purchase. :p
    But, who knows.

    i thought that but then again, it is from 1977 (apparently) and wouldnt that be a bit early for those crappy, plug in your tv and play tetris type things.

    Also hes selling an intellivision and a copy of sonic for the 32x so it sounds like he wouldnt have a system like that

    It looks like one of those things that would be great fun for an evening if you have a like-minded retro friend, but then would not be touched again.

    Well it's fairly cheap at the moment, it may make a nice addition to a collectors collection of retro consoles.

    Reminds me of those pirated '96 games in 1' Gameboy cartridges you see being sold in market squares. Where they have 'World Tennis Championship', 'Tennis', 'Tennis Pro', 'Mario Tennis', 'Racket Fun' etc. which are all just the same damn game. And overall there's like 5 games on the cart.

    And I got one that is near impossible to take out of the GB, it just gets stuck.

    Note: I didn't buy this, I'm not that stupid, It was a presant from spain or something.

    This was the console world of the 70s!
    There were hundreds of companies who built a similar console.
    Most featured nearly the same games (Pong, Tennis, Football, etc.)
    All in the same graphical style as Pong (two lines (in Football four lines) as players, a square as a ball...)

    Looks a bit crap to me (50 million variants of tetris - block wars, save the blocks, block hunter, blockman.... etc .etc.).... and WHY has the main body description got the picture of an MB Vectrex? A MUCH superior and sought after machine, btw.....

    actually, i have a 96 in one gbc cart in which each game is individual.

    Unfortuanately, the saving is dodge, and sometimes your saves dissapear.

    If it is possible to put so much more stuff on once cart, why didnt nintendo do it?

    Your problem is probably all the carts using the same SRAM (or whatever it's called) ... which is unavoidable, really.

    WWOooooooahhhhhh...... I won one of those suckers......suck being the opertative word. It features a few variations of pong, and a variation on "Duck Hunt" for the NES. The Duck Hunt rip off didnt have any ducks or charachters of any type, just a big white square about quarter the size of my tv screen bouncing around. Also, the light gun was so shoddy that shooting anywhere in the room resulted in a hit.
