The Odyssey² (known as Videopac in Europe, and simply Odyssey in Brazil) was a video game console made by Magnavox/Philips as a follow-up to the first generation Odyssey. The problem is that the hardware was really low-grade, even for that time. Also, the console was big and clunky, having a huge keyboard that served no real purpose. Now, it did enjoy some success in Europe and Brazil, where it arrived before the Atari 2600 juggernaut. Nonetheless, it was already pretty much dead by the time the Great Video Game Crash of '83 happened.
It didn't have many games, but most of them were exclusives... although they were all mostly rip-offs of other famous games of that time.
