The Spanish files

Following the same example as shown earlier with the Dutch files newspost, now is the turn of the Spanish archive. As we know, Spain was one of the main MSX markets in Europe where Sony, Philips or Mitsubishi heavily invested in their respective advertising campaigns.

You need only search a couple of the most important and oldest Spanish newspapers, La Vanguardia and ABC, to confirm this. This MSX implementation program in schools and a programming contest both by Sony or a full page color advertisement by Philips are clear examples.

On the other hand, revising their archive, we can also find interesting articles about MSX and PC and other technical information or games reviews even a job offer for an analyst programmer with MSX-BASIC knowledge.

Again, we wish you a lot of fun with this time travel!

I still remember when I saw it on the newspaper, back in October 1988. It talks about the beginning of computer games, and it even mentions some Konami games!!

It's wonderful to see Game Master, Nemesis & Nemesis 2 so big in the paper!! And I still have the original page, stuffed somewhere!
