ODYSSEY 2 ('loose' version)

ODYSSEY 2 (hardwired version)



Magnavox is actually a visual and audio media company, not intended to be a primary videogame company like Nintendo, Atari or Sega, but their importance can't be denied. Because of Ralph Baer, Magnavox released the first videogame system intended for the home consumer market. In 1972 Baer came out with his Odyssey system, a simple PONG machine that materialized his vision that 'you should be able to do more with TV than just watch it.' While it wasn't a Magnavox invention per say, they did manufacture the product, as Baer had come up with it while working for the Military. From this stemmed a whole Odyssey series that didn't do anything except play more and more PONG. Then, in 1978 they Odyssey switched over to a programmable computer/console system.
