It's me again, the newbie Tongue

I translated all the one chip msx articles i could find. Seems they target a price around 100$us (10000 yen). They talk of already having msx 2 + fm sound working on the one chip msx. They also talk of removing some connectors, which i hope doesn't happen as the specs are nearly perfect right now. Can't wait to see which kind of case they'll come up with.

Although onboard ethernet would be coul it's not an absolute necessity to me. One can always use an ObsoNet cartridge, right?

I don't think the MSX community will suffer from the MSX revival.. In stead, I think the opposite will happen

What makes you think the MSX revival will suffer from the MSX community?

I just found out on the Altera website that you can update the core of the FPGA using an USB cable, i think usb will stay. They seem to mention that the cartridge slots will support add-ons so my guess it's that the obsonet cart should work. I hope they don't reduce the cart slots to just one. Oh well, time will tell.

Seems they want to release it in spring 2005, some articles mentionned march.

In case anyone have doubts the MSX can relive, you should read up on the neogeo game system, which remained alive without any sort of upgrade for like 13 years. They just stopped making new games for it. A new king of fighters could sell in the dozens of thousands units for the home system (i think it could be twice that but i have no hard numbers so i'm relying on my memory).

"the MSX revival will suffer from the MSX community"
and
"the MSX community will suffer from the MSX revival"
are opposites, aren't they?
