The Magnavox Odyssey 300 is a 1976 home Pong console developed by Magnavox. The Magnavox Odyssey 300 is the successor to the Magnavox Odyssey 200.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The Magnavox Odyssey 300 features 3 variations of Pong: Hockey, Tennis, and Smash; each can be played on 3 difficulty settings: novice, intermediate, and expert. The in-game paddles are controlled by a single knob located on each side of the console, that control the paddles movement vertically (i.e., up and down). All three games are two-player, with the right knob reading Home Team, and the left reading Visiting Team. The Magnavox Odyssey 300, unlike its two predecessors, features a built-in scoring system instead of a manual score slider, physically built into the previous console's chassis.
