Odyssey 2

While perhaps not a aesthetically striking as the sporty yellow Odyssey 300, you still can't deny the retro-hi-tech styling of the Magnavox Odyssey 2 from 1978. With a 49-key alphanumeric membrane keyboard, it may look futuristic, but the lacking graphics and power of this cartridge system were considered "primitive" even by late 70s standards. The Atari 2600 pretty much wiped the floor with this thing.

Still, we here at Junk Pirate are always keen to caress any retro game system, particularly those that used cartridges and joysticks.

If you somehow still have unanswered questions about the Odyssey 2, you will find them all answered, and many, many, many more at the Odyssey2 Homepage.

Aww, heck. I just can't resist throwing in a picture of my Odyssey 300. It's just so pretty:
