    Default Identify A Pong Unit (Clone)

    Is there a website that has a large collection of pictures of different Pong units? I know there were literally hundreds of Pong clones, but I'd like to find a picture of a particular one. It's the one I had as a kid.

    In my mind, it's shaped almost like an Atari 2600. It seems like it was tapered at the bottom like a 2600, then came up and was almost the same size/shape (not one of the smaller ones), and then the back tilted up like the 2600. Maybe I'm getting my memories confused.

    This one was beige or off-white. I remember the controllers were removable, and I think the knobs were silver. The knobs weren't like a spinner knob (like TRON), they were more like ... I don't know, "tapered"?

    If you guys know of any places that have pictures, I'd be glad to search through them. I could also sketch it out on paper, although I'm pretty sure I'm remembering some of it wrong.

    I know that we had it Thanksgiving Day of 1977.

    Hah! This place never ceases to deliver (or amaze me!)!!!

    Yup, that's the one! If you ever plan to part with that one in particular, let me know.

    This wouldn't have helped Flack as it turns out, but Pong-Story is a pretty good Pong resource if anyone else is looking for one. The Museum of Home Video Gaming has a few Pong unit photos as well.

    Awesome!!!!

    Sure,I will let you know if I do..

    I've come across this one a few times at flea markets..I didn't buy them because of the vendors high asking price ..(I didn't haggle though)
    (I usually just want to pay $5.00 for a pong system at a flea market or garage sale)

    But,I'll make sure to keep an eye out for one for you now and haggle harder..
