Although it may be hard to believe today, there was a time when local newspapers were a major source of information and mass advertising. So it was during Odyssey²'s heyday, 1978-1983. Yes, people actually decided which video game console to buy while reading the daily paper!
The following is an archive of Odyssey² ads, pulled from digitized sources like Google's Newspaper Archive. Links to the original issues are provided where possible (click ), but a few are no longer available in Google's archives.
Content presented here was pulled from high-contrast sources and was retouched to restore a "newsprint" look.
