    Heck, remember the wonderment and amazement of people gathered around the brand spanking new Pong machine at Patrick's Lounge watching that little grey ball on a black screen bouncing up and down, back and forth as a player tried to keep it in play, at the time it was amazing, and I think Pacman was out not long after, they even got the table top version when it came out "made drinking and playing easier".

    i had a "pong game", made by some other company, can't remember the name, (i am thinking Univision..??) black and white as well.

    i just looked up the name, of the game maker, can't find it.

    i had this one, a few years later, Intellivision.....and some hamburger game, with several levels
