Magnavox Odyssey

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

I'm new to this forum and i'm trying to get myself around to posting :) I live in australia and it is completely impossible for me to find a Magnavox odyssey without paying 300-400 on ebay for one. I understand it would not work on a PAL tv set, it would be for collecting purposes. Does anyone here have one they would be willing to sell, boxed preferebly!

 

Thanks :)

Hi, I know a few things about the Odyssey, but I don't know if it would work on PAL or not. You can get some less expensive ones if you're lucky. A few I've seen on eBay go from about $100-$150 US. (Australian Dollars and US Dollars are very close, I see.) For info on "cheap" Odysseys (and I use the term loosely), sometimes I update my Odyssey page: http://www.atari2600land.com/odyssey/ with some eBay offerings. Since you live in Australia, hope you're not offended by my Captain Bruce game I'm working on!

By 'complete' do you mean you'll have every console ever made??

Nice score on the Odyssey on Ebay. I was going to bid on that myself but Alas I forgot. As for if they work on pal I beleive they do. I have a rare export Odyssey that was sold in Australia (mine came from New Zealand) and the board inside the system is the exact same as the US Odyssey. The only difference is the one sold in Australia has no AC power input so you have to use batteries. So I would think you should be fine.

 

If you have any questions or need any thing(such as extra games or a cord to eliminate the switch box feel free to ask. I often have extras laying around)

I have had alot of luck finding the rarest Odyssey stuff. Maybe because I use all my spare time hunting through the internet. :)

 

If you want to see some of my collection it can be seen here http://www.atariage.com/forums/topic/158274-njb12287s-100-complete-odyssey-collection/

 

I hope you get it and it works well. If not I can help you with setting it up to work correctly and help you with any other stuff. Im sure youll love it. there is no gaming experience quite like the odyssey
