Telstar Arcade

Published: June 25, 2021

The Telstar Arcade was a first-generation game console that was released in 1977 in Japan, North America and Europe by Coleco. It is the most advanced home video game console in the Coleco Telstar series, based on the MOS Technology MPS-7600-00x chips series. Each of these chips is a full microcontroller with 512 ROM area. The console is formed like a triangle, and on every side are other game-specific controls. One side has a steering wheel and a lever, another side has a lightgun, and a third side has two paddles.
