Did anyone else have a pre-Atari gaming system?
Did anyone else here have a very early gaming system, pre-Atari?
When I was a kid, my parents bought a Coleco Telstar Arcade. This was a pretty unique system, and one of the first (if not the first) to use interchangeable cartridges to make it play different games. With the included cartridge, it played Pong (the staple back then), QuickDraw (a shooting game, with included light gun), and a pretty cool "Night Driver" style driving game, with the included steering wheel.
We never did get any of the add-on carts for it, just the basic one. But it held us until we got an Atari a few years later (I remember that Christmas distinctly, we opened all our gifts, and my dad pulled out the Atari after we thought it was all done...)
Here's a link to some info on it: http://www.pong-story.com/coleco_arcade.htm
Anyone else have anything like this?
