Magnavox Odyssey²


While everyone else was kicking it with their NES and Ataris back in the day I had a Magnavox Odyssey². I had everything for it, including some protoype carts. As far as I remember everything is still in the original boxes as well. I'll include some cheesy 70s commercials for some of the games as well.

  2. Whoa. Crazy retro. The first games console I had was a Sega Megadrive (or Genesis for you americans). I can still remember spending hours on it.

  3. Yeah, my next console I got was a Super Nintendo, which I still have as well as the Odysessy². My cousins had the Genesis and the Game Gears, as well as other systems including the N64. So whenever I was at their house I'd be playing Sonic or Goldeneye almost nonstop

  4. I also have a PS2 and 360, but I definitely enjoy my old school systems a little bit more

  5. I got rather lucky on getting the Odyssey² as I have relatives that worked at Magnavox back when this was made. Its also the reason why I have prototype carts for it

  10. Wow that's ancient. I still have my Atari somewhere at the attic but it no longer works and just keep it for nostalgia purposes.

  14. Yeah, this bad boy came out in 1978. We found it in storage at my maternal grandmother's house and I ended up with it in the early 90s when everyone had stuff like the Super Nintendo (which I also have)and the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive were around. Supposedly my dad and his siblings had an Intellivision (circa 1979), so I'm gonna try and see if its still around as well.

  15. My friend had Atari and I had NES. Then I got Genesis and my other friend got SNES. My plan was variety, rather than buying the same system so we could share games. I'm getting a free NES from someone that is stil in the box. Not sure if I should keep it or sell it.
