Question Pong home console machine

While I was at my local car-boot today I noticed a strange looking pong machine. It was boxed and looked in fair condiion. In the end I decided against buying it. I wonder if I was right too. It's probably worth like Ģ300 or something.

Anyway I want to know if anyone knows anything about it. It was called Vision**** and had about three variants of the game pong. There was tennis pong, football pong and another pong game. It looked like it was from the early eighites and has a strange look about it. Anyone heard of this machine?

**** = unknown word

I don't think thats it. It's something like it though. I'm pretty sure Vision was the first word in the name. I don't think it has that sort of box shape. I remember it having a curved design.

Happy Excellent

Thanks for the link Belgarath. I think this is the one I saw:

I wonder what it's worth? Would anyone buy one of these? I've not spotted any on eBay. They might be rare.

This is really weird. I managed to get a similar console during the weekend but I couldn't be arsed testing it. I got it for free but there was at least one inch of dust on top of the box and the RF sockets was the Singaporian one so I have to buy an ordinary RF socket!!! I have to say that I love the controllers though!!!
