The Odyssey[[superscript:2]] was Magnavox's successor to the [[UsefulNotes/MagnavoxOdyssey Odyssey]]. Unlike the Odyssey, and like later consoles such as the {{Atari 2600}}, it had a [[UsefulNotes/CentralProcessingUnit CPU]], and was fully programmable. It was released in 1978, after the 2600, and was technically inferior to it. The Odyssey[[superscript:2]] had a couple of unique features, though: a keyboard, making it somewhere between a console and a computer, and a speech synthesis unit.

Known outside the United States as the Philips Videopac G7000 or the Philips Odyssey.
