The Odyssey 500 (Model 7520) dedicated console was released in 1976. The console is essentially the same as the Odyssey 400

The Odyssey 500 had one unique addition: instead of displaying vertical line "paddles", the console uses special graphics that actually resemble simplified versions of human players.

Three different graphics were used for the three different game variations (Tennis, Hockey, and Smash); Magnavox marketed the 500 as having a fourth game (Soccer) by using the squash player graphics with the hockey playing field.

The console offers automatic serve, displays digital on-screen scores between plays, and provides settings for ball speed control. Power is delivered via an included AC adapter.
