With the Tokyo Gameshow only just started, RetroPC have already published a report, photo shoot and video of the booth that probably interests us MSX fans the most: the booth of D4 Enterprise.

As we had announced earlier, the brand new One Chip MSX is on display on the D4E booth, revealing its new power-button, reset-button and transparent MSX logo as small changes on what appears to be the final design of the casing. Although the pictures are sometimes a bit on the dark side (as no flash was used) and the site is a bit hard to reach at the moment, the photo shoot is certainly worth having a look at.

As they're all @ TGS right now I can't confirm that, but as Project EGG/EGGplus are on display as well, the gamepads are likely to bring back the retrogaming-feel for emulation (e.g. MSXPLAYer) users. It would not surprise me at all if this joypad was one of the first things to be supported by an OCM upgrade though Wink

4 fire buttons, Start & Select.

Think is not an MSX only stand, is the D4 stand, Proyect EGG,with PC games, Emulators, etc..

in fact, several Microcabin games for MSX had support for 4-button joypads...

I would be interested to know which games, and who manufactured those pads.

Since you have 2 output lines in the joystick it can be used to select the function of the 6 actual buttons, so you can make an msx joystick with 24 buttons or a multitap with 4 actual 6 button joystick.

Prolly a tad more, since VAT is a bit higher here than it is there, plus some importies duties, customs fees and shipping & handling are to be paid as well.
