This box contains new (and improved) versions of the songs or are just the same songs we can hear using our msxes or with a emulator?

The first Game Legend box contained original MSX recordings, but was recorded by connecting an extra audio out to the circuit of a turboR computer (blasphemy! Tongue) resulting in very neat recordings with significantly less noise than an ordinary MSX setup. Needless to say, so far the sound quality of the real deal is unrivaled by emulation ;P

Well, if it is just the original songs played by the original hardware, I don't see the point of buying this collection. You can always hear those songs by using a MSX or at least with a good emulator like OpenMSX or BlueMSX.

@snout: your message scares me a bit. I mean, are sound effects recorded as well? I really hate when that happens. Best is to have just the music and maybe sound effects in a seperate audio track.
