Even if I'm a MSX Fan since 1986 and until the MSX Turbo-R, I like Japanese computer or game machine... I like play these days with friend on Nintendo Switch
But that's funny the old come back :
Famicom or Super Famicom mini yesa already but....

Maybe more difficult to see one day a new MSX with by example few software or 200 games inside because MSX was a standard not only ONE company...

Kinda, and it was ahead of most other platforms, but it didn’t come bundled with games unfortunately so it wasn’t really something you’d pick up at the toy store for some easy nostalgia.

In that sense, Konami would be the best candidate as a publisher since they’ve been responsible for the majority of the top MSX titles. With the 1chipMSX the platform is already there. But the PC-Engine is more widely known in the US so they’ve picked that as their throwback console.

Aren't you just many years too late, and got the wrong Nintendo console?

"Nintendo announced MSX compatibility on September 19, 2006,[8] announcing on February 23, 2007 that the MSX titles Eggy and Aleste will be released in Japan." from https://metroid.fandom.com/wiki/Virtual_Console

There is also mention of games available on Nintendo's eshop according to this Salamander (MSX version) mini review: https://japanesenintendo.com/2016/08/11/salamander-msx-versi...

Anyway, I don't believe it's a good idea to get a new MSX and then you can get games inside. The Spectrum tried this and it was just a disaster. The C64 mini also only have very small amount of games.

Thank you for your answers. Of course I thought a real computer of a real brand. But can we consider this project as reliable and interesting?
Sounds serious (although a lot in Spanish, and how to use?)

Although owning a Panasonic MSX Turbo-R FS-A1GT, I am super pleased with all the initiatives since 1995 to make Hardware. I unfortunately missed the MSXPC made in Japan.
I have a question a little stupid perhaps for this computer: Who would not have any more of MSX software at home, can buy this computer and operate (via internet access) for example File-Hunter or WebMSX? Or, download games (from PC) and then run them on this computer?
Thank you for your clarification (since indeed 2 friends who sold everything on MSX, could buy it but they have more games).

<--- The SX-mini is maybe the smallest MSX until. You can even build your own designed MSX out of bricks.

When we watch videos with this MSXVR we have the impression that it is idling (music games) I wonder if It's in real speed 60hz or if like between 1986 and 1990 I got caught with my Philips in 50hz ...
