Step back in time to the early days of home gaming with the Interton Video Computer 4000, released in 1978 by Interton Electronic GmbH

The Interton Video Computer 4000 was a home gaming console released in 1978 by Interton Electronic GmbH, a German electronics manufacturer. The system was similar in design and function to other consoles of the era, such as the Atari 2600 and the Magnavox Odyssey 2.

The Video Computer 4000 featured an 8-bit processor and had 2 KB of built-in RAM, which could be expanded up to 6 KB with a memory module. It had a custom sound and video chip and could display up to four colors at once on the screen. The system was compatible with both RF and composite video output.

The console was sold in Europe under several different names, including the Interton VC 4000, the Hanimex Rameses, the ITT Tele-Match Processor, and the Voltmace Database.

The Video Computer 4000 had a library of around 100 games, including several clones of popular arcade games of the time, such as Space Invaders, Pac-Man, and Breakout. The system also had a built-in game called "Robot Killer", where players controlled a robot and had to navigate through a maze while avoiding enemies.

Despite its relatively short lifespan, the Interton Video Computer 4000 was an influential console in the early years of home gaming, and it helped to pave the way for future gaming systems that followed.
