Grandstand 6000 Colour

Colour Video Sports Centre with 10 exciting fun games including Basketball Practice, Practice, Tennis, Basketball, Squash, Hockey, Football, Gridball, Rifle No.1 and Rifle No. 2. One of the early colour TV games but still the same set of PONG like variants.

This console used joysticks rather than the rotary paddles which meant the bats could move in two dimensions.

Manufacturer: Grandstand
Date: 1978

This exhibit has a reference ID of CH31304. Please quote this reference ID in any communication with the Centre for Computing History.
