Oh! Hit Bit was a part of a series of "Oh!" Japanese computer magazines, published by Japan SoftBank.

It covered the Sony Hit Bit range of computers, peripherals and games. Unlike what is commonly assumed in the west this comprised more then just the Sony MSX models. As the Hit Bit brand was already established and used by the non-MSX Sony SMC-777, launched in 1983 before the MSX. the SMC-777 was a successor to the SMC-70 launched the year before, but that model did not carry the HiTBiT brand.

Similar magazines from Japan SoftBank:

  • Oh! MZ for the Sharp MZ, later renamed to Oh! X when the Sharp X1 came out
  • Oh! FM for the Fujitsu FM-Town
  • Oh! PC for the NEC PC-98.

They published a total of twelve Hit Bit issues from 1984 to 1987.
