If I'm correct, ASCII is not only a book/magazine publisher, but a software publisher as well. Not only for MSX, but for more recent systems as well...

Geez, how come a keyboard doesn't react normally when you have had some drinks? oO

Indeed, many ASCII software titles were sold as well. As far as I know ASCII is only publishing books and magazines at the moment. No more hardware, no more software...

Unusual, yes, but remember MSX was Nishi's idea, who was working for Microsoft Far East at the time. Nishi took his MSX idea to ASCII later.

Ascii is a publishing company? That's funny! And what Nishi had to do with Ascii then?

IIRC, Nishi's uncle was president of ASCII and later he became president himself.

An interesting text about the contacts between Kay Nishi and Bill Gates :

The most comic is the fact that Bill Gates couldn't permit himself to go to Japan, but Kay Nishi had no problem to go to U.S.A. !!! :evil:
