Magnavox

Magnavox Odyssey is a first generation home game console made by Magnavox in 1972. It is widely regarded as the first home game console ever. The Megnavox Odyssey uses a box like controler with two dials on either side. One moves the retangular object on string vertically, and the other moves it horizontally. Each game was numbered, and came with an overlay for the TV, and assessories. All Odyssey games are two player games.
