Man i remember this console, though funnily enough it wasn't the first console I played with.

My cousin had this and he had a space invaders clone on it. Good times.

I will quite happily admit that this unit was before my time, but none the less, I can appreciate

First console I played with was the old atari...playing pong and space invaders. I had one of those homebrew style computers at the same time (TRS80 model 1)...although calling what it showed graphics was a compliment lol.

First console I bothered to buy though was the sega master system with alex kidd in miracle world built in....I think I had an amiga and an old 286 pc at that time.

sans titre

Used to have tennis, squash, soccer and handball.

Also remember if you were able to position the game selection button inbetween 2 games, you were able to play soccer with 3 bats instead of 2 (my first hack!!!!)

Ahh the good times on the old black and white TV!!!

The Hitex!

Granted, it's not as old as the ones you've posted, but it was indeed the first console I owned. Could play original NES games with an adapter.
