TRIVIA

The Videomaster Sportsworld, model VMV5, was released around 1978 and featured ten games in color. It used the General Instruments AY-3-8610 game chip. This model was the last attempt to use a dedicated game chip. The Colour Cartridge model came next and allowed playing more games using cartridges (which all contained a dedicated game chip). The Videomaster Sportsworld is not rare (especially in the UK) and has a quite cheap-looking design. Two versions of this console exist because of players' bi-directional motion: one with joysticks, and one which has different controllers with two knobs (one for each direction). Obviously the former is easier to play with.
