In 1972 Magnavox introduced ODYSSEY The world's first ever commercial home video game console. It featured no color graphics. No 3D graphics. No sound. And no digital processor. All analog engineering. The following is an actual screen recording of the game "Table Tennis". Again, no sound. No color. Just simple game play. This is how the video gaming revolution began over 40 years ago.
This video features gameplay footage from 100 different games for the Magnavox Odyssey 2 and Philips Videopac consoles.
The MP-1000 or also known as the M-1000 was released in 1978 by APF Electronics. Special thank you to Stu for this system and games for me to review.

Classic Game Room was the FIRST classic video game review show on the Internet in 1999. Returning in 2008 with new episodes, Classic Game Room breaks out a review of SPEEDWAY! for the Magnavox Odyssey 2 video game console. The O2 was called the Philips Videopac G7000 in Europe and Speedway was called Race or RACE! and came bundled with 2 other games on the same cartridge called Spin-Out and Crypto-Logic. This game is really old fashioned and if you're a hip, dope down retro gamer you know it be from all the way back in 1978. Play with your Magnavox Odyssey 2 joystick and rock out to the soundtrack of cars driving and crashing into each other. How does this compare to Gran Turismo 5, Forza 2 and F1 Championship? Well, not so realistic. However, I do like it better than Ridge Racer 7. There's no irritating chick telling me I'm "SLIPSTREAMING" every second. "Shut the F up!!!" Yes, Speedway is comfortable and familiar with its old school silece, and I love it for that. It's a game that can be enjoyed by children and adults alike, assuming you have a working Magnavox Odyssey 2. I don't think it has racing wheel support. I doubt you'll see it on the Playstation 3, PS3, PS2, Xbox 360 Live Arcade or Wii any time soon either... sadly. Do you collect old games from back in the day? Well get this one and shout it out loud, SPEEDWAY!!! Classic Game Room was the original classic video game review show on the Internet in 1999-2000, now on DVD. The reviews on the HD series are reviewing PS3, PS2, Genesis, NES, Atari and Xbox 360. XBLA. videos review reviews show
