After reading this on nu.nl: http://www.nu.nl/news.jsp?n=342700&c=55 (DUTCH)
I visited commodore's website: http://www.commodore.net
Quite pathetic, imho... What do you guys think? This has nothing to do with a revival, right? Just trying to cash in on the brandname...

hehe I could do an easy chicken or egg joke now. There are quite some people who have comments on what's going on with the MSX revival, but the way Tulip is handling the Commodore brandname is completely rediculous. At least everything MSX Association does has actually got something to do with MSX ;)

Well, it might trigger a lot of Commodore jokes now indeed. And it always starts with one person to make one. Wink

Well, it can be fun to take with you if you have to travel on your own.
I bought a joystick with a couple of hundres NES game in it in Taiwan for US$ 25,-. When I am bored in the evening, I hook it up to the TV in my hotel room and play some games!
Could be nice to have something similar for MSX. The PocketMSX emulator works quite nicely, but playing games on my iPAQ H5550 just doesn't work so nice due to the fact that the buttons on that device aren't made for playing games...

It seems that commodore will release old games and emulators through there site.
Knowing the people behind I think we're getting something like Project EGG for the C64 games. How orriginal Smile

They are going to sell it at www.yeahronimo.com, but the main focus will be selling MP3 files. Which makes sense, as Tulip just released some MP3 players under the Commodore brand. Indeed, not very original...

Distributing games with emulators was not an original idea of the Project EGG. Charging that much for them YES.

You think EGG titles cost much? Check out RealArcade, they charge up to 20 euro for an emulated game Smile
