It's one of the great miseries of our time that the "next-generation" follow up to the Odyssey², the Odyssey3 Command Center, was never released. Well, not outside of Europe, anyway. In Europe, a near-equivalent console known as the Philips G7400 actually made it to market, along with a handful of enhanced "Plus" games. Unfortunately, if you want to play "Plus" games in the United States, it's not a matter of simply importing a G7400 and plugging it in. You have to have an appropriate video monitor, some way to deal with the European power plug, and most importantly, you have to know the right kind of G7400 to buy. Overall, successfully importing a G7400 can be more than a little confusing. This guide is here to help.
Please note: I've researched everything in this section and it's as complete as I can make it, but there still may be some gaps (for example, I still haven't been able to locate a source of 8-pin DIN RGB cables). If you can contribute to this guide, please contact me.
Step 1: Buying a G7400
Step 2: Modifying the Console
Step 3: Plugging It In
Step 4: Hooking It Up to Your TV
One final note: The G7400 power switch is notoriously prone to failure. Luckily, it is possible to replace broken switches, though not exactly easy. If you need to replace yours, detailed instructions are available on this site.
