We have just closed the second poll related to the announcements of the One Chip MSX and Bazix in which we asked: With the One Chip MSX1 announced and Bazix taking the MSX Revival worldwide, the MSX Revival will...

The restults of this poll show that 76% of the MSX Community expects the MSX Revival will become more succesful than it already is, 18% of which think that will only happen in Japan. 8% of the voters think the revival will have a bad influence on the MSX community. About 16% of the voters expect the MSX Revival will end here. The full results of the poll are:

  • 1. Become relatively succesful (31.68%)
  • 2. Become a huge succes (25.74%)
  • 3. Only be succesful in Japan (18.81%)
  • 4. End here (15.84%)
  • 5. Have a bad influence on the amateur scene (7.92%)

101 people took the efforts to vote on this poll.

Our new poll is the result of the MSX in the Media Challenge we started on May 2nd, 2004. After a megapoll of 4 rounds in our forums the time has come for the grand finale. Which was the coolest attention to MSX in the Media from May 2nd to November 2004?

Was it the Spanish TV Station TVE2 reporting about the MSX computer on Navarparty? Was it the Brazilian Newspaper O globo who reported on MSXRio 2004? Was it the One Chip MSX getting attention on the cover of (and in) the Japanese Weekly ASCII Magazine? Was it the One Chip MSX appearing on several VNUnet websites like PCMweb? Or could it have been the Dutch computernews portal reporting about the One Chip MSX? You decide! If you want to have a close look at the final nominees first, check this forum thread. You can find all 80 nominees of the MSX in the Media Challenge over here.

Please keep us informed when you get or spot MSX in the Media, as a new MSX in the Media Challenge was started on December 5th. More information on that Challenge and the 'awards' you can win with it can be found over here. Happy voting!
