Bit Museum #3: The Wizard of Odyssey

“No, mom! I said an Atari 2600! Look at the picture in the Sears WishBook! Come on, it doesn’t look anything like this!”

Sound familiar? Perhaps it was your own whiny lament on a Christmas morning some decades ago. But buck up! The Magnavox Odyssey 2 was a worthy contender to the Atari 2600, and while it couldn’t stand up against ol’ Wood Grain, it was still a moderately successful Generation 2 cartridge-based game system.

We take a quick look at the Magnavox Odyssey 2 Hardware, a couple games, and a brief history lesson of this weird but neat-o machine.

Also, check out our special guest.
