RCA STUDIO II

The worst Game system ever made

 

 

 

Ok, the only reason RCA can be forgiven for the existence of this console is that it was only the second game console that took cartridges ever made. It has no controllers. You use the numeric key pad to play the games. It's in black and white. The sound comes out of the unit itself, not the TV. There is no way to turn the volume down. It has games like Math Quiz , Connect Four , and TIC-TAC-TOE . Wow, sounds like a HELL of a lot of fun. This thing disappeared even before the 2600 arrived on the scene. This is probably the one game system in the universe that I am just not interested in collecting. Maybe if I find one in a dumpster..

There is some interesting baloney going on with this system. The processor is the same one used in the Voyager spacecraft. Also it appears that the system was supposed to be in color and use detachable joysticks but was rushed. Still a piece of junk system best left forgotten.
