    It is unknown if there was a Studio I.
    After RCA let the rights to Odyssey go to Magnavox, they scrambled to get a gaming system out.
    It did not sell well.
    Unlike competitors, they failed to get licenses to manufacture popular arcade games.
    RCA only produced nine games.
    Half of the games were programmed by one person (Andrew Modla of Tekla Inc.).
    The games require instructions, even to know which keys to press to start the game.
    It was monochrome.
    Because it lacked color, it seemed primitive compared to the competitors Atari and Fairchild Channel F.
    Although the games were written in color, the system could only show them in black and white.
    The graphics were large blocks.
    It used a numeric key board with the game paddles affixed to the console.
    It did not have an 'on' switch.
    They bragged 'with the Studio II, you'll transform the TV set in your home into an electronic entertainment and educational center for the entire family.'
    It was the second console to use fully programmable cartridges (Fairchild F was first).
    To get parents interested, they released an educational software.
    The used their own exclusive processor, the RCA COSMAC 1802.
