A simple question:
Ascii wants 5000 preorders of the One Chip MSX to make it. So if it is achieved, there will be only 5000 units in the market and the people that have not preordered it will not be able to get one?

From an economically point of view, I'd say, they cross their break-even point if they sell 5000... Everything beneath that would make them loose cash, which is commercially not affordable...

I recon that once the 5000 are sold (*if*), there might come new series in the future, as long as there's demand from the customers (see the Sunrise hardware, which is still being made/sold if there are enough people who buy)...

But let them reach the 5000 hits first... It's quite a number...

The thing is. As soon as they reach the 5000 units and the product itself WILL be produced.....Things will flow automatically, I'm convinced!! Reaching the 5000 will be quite something, though. I think.

you mean to say they're waiting for the first 5000 orders before they produce?

yup its to expancive to produce less than 5000 if they only sell 2500 the price would be €400?

its very expancive to hire a production line to produce 1 chip msxés.

since its based on smd to machines have to be programmed to produce those PCB's

yes; even with Bazix jumping in, it's gonna be hard. There's only so much media attention you're gonna get as a new company.

well... if one has faith in its product, one should invest and not wait for a number of orders to come in... If this would've happened to MSX in 1983 / 1984, there wouldn't have been an MSX in the first place...

That was a different marketing strategy... Look at the prices... They earned back the infestments with high prices... Later on they dropped...
