The 'original version of Pong' was an arcade game. Since you can't download hardware, you won't have much luck there. Why not just get one of the few million freeware clones for your system?

As I said, you can't download an arcade machine from the 70s.

This... is some kind of joke, right?

I say: "You can't download it."
You say: "And where can I download it?"

For the unlikely case this is not a hoax: Please have a look at the attached picture. That is the original version of Pong, released in 1972. As you can see, it's a pretty bit machine. You insert coins into it to play. To sum this up: it's special and huge hardware! Asking where and how to download it is like asking where to download a PC, and Mac, an Amiga, a C64 or a SNES. The answer is always the same: you can't. Downloading hardware is not possible. There is no way around it! You can only download software, and my advice is to follow the link Tapuak posted.

I think he's trying to say "Where can I get a version that can be played on a computer"

If that is the case, I unfortunately have to point you we know absolutely nothing about Tiny's computer, so it's pretty hard to point him to a fitting version. Through the power of assumption, I'd still suggest Tapuak's link, though...

I could either send you a live topless dancer via e-mail or phone you some pictures of nude women.

Is there some kind of emulator I can get, because I followed the guys link, and the file I donwloaded worked, but nothing looked like normal.

And I am not dumb, I know you can't download hardware.

No, you don't need an emulator. What's you problem? Does it run or not?

The link actually doesn't work for me at all now that I tried it. The page which opens only opens another page which for some reason is located on my hard drive (temporary files). The download link then points to my hard drive, too, with the file not being there of course.

No, it doesn't work. Do I have to run it in MS-Dos mode?
