Hi !
I have a friend who is going to Japan in a few days. I asked him to bring me back a MSX2, but he doesn't want to, it's too "huge and heavy" for him Tongue
So I'd like to ask him a MSX USB reader for PC... Does somebody know where he could buy this ? And how much is it (in euro) ?
thanks !

I want to be the first one to say: bring one for me too, please.

you can't buy it in shops, you can only pre-order it at the ASCII store. <a href="https://ssl.ascii-store.com/corner/msx.cgi" target="_blank">https://ssl.ascii-store.com/corner/msx.cgi</a>

(sorry, no clickable link since this site requires https)
(hmm cool! msx.org makes a clickable link of this without using the URL tags Smile

I think my friend in Japan mentioned it to me.
I will have to check my mails.

I think he said that he could buy it for me if I wanted it.
Maybe I could get multiple.

Don't get your hopes up yet, thou.
I'll try to find out and reply here soon...

It would highly surprise me, since the Game Readers are not on sale yet. Only if more than 3.000 are sold in the pre-ordering stage MSX Association will begin actual production. However, there might be a pleasant surprise for us in the near future...

I'm not sure if it was about the USB cart reader, or some other hardware Smile

with only a few days left: maybe you should contact Ikeda about this. Not sure, but he might....

Yup, Ikeda can order such an USB-reader for you.
He needs the payment for it in advance of course...

See 16 november 2003 on the following page:
http://web.inter.nl.net/users/A.P.Wulms/Noframed/ikeda.html

The price for it including shipment from Japan is about 125 euro.
(You can find how to contact K.Ikeda on the above link)

Greetings.
