3,000 One Chip MSX computers sold

Tema: MSX Revival
Idiomas:

On May 20th, ASCII started taking pre-orders on the new One Chip MSX. On July 10th, Bazix started taking pre-orders as well, whilst on the same day 2,000 One Chip MSX computers were sold. As of today, the 3,000 pre-orders barrier was passed as well. However, there are only 5 days left to sell another 2,000 One Chip MSX computers to make commercial production of the One Chip MSX possible.

At the moment, it is unknown what will happen if, on August 20th, the 5,000 pre-orders barrier has not been passed, but certainly announcements by ASCII, Bazix and/or MSX Association are to be expected during the coming days. An exciting week awaits us.

The announcement will be that Bazix now co-owns Chiquita. When the 5000-mark isn't made, the people who pre-ordered will get 189 euro worth of bananas! LOL!

From the FAQ:
The One Chip MSX will be delivered with the VHDL code that is used to achieve MSX1 compatibility. At this moment it has not been decided yet under what form of license this code will be released. We plan to announce this information in the near future.
Bazix, could you please clarify the license before the pre-order period closes? Since playing with the FPGA code is one of the main selling points for the One Chip MSX, I think such an important question should not remain unanswered.

Does the counter on https://www.ascii.co.jp/1chip/ include the pre-orders made through Bazix?

No Arjan, it's only ASCII's pre-order count.

When there's news about the msx2 being the standard 1cm-config, pre-orders might rise ..

Let's say, the more the product migrates to the specs the scene is moaning about for months now, the better the chances are ^_^

(just don't mention the cas-port again :S )

Nishi will spend hundreds of thousands dollars on buying OCMs ?
Maybe he is a very rich man.

cax - in fact Nishi is quite a wealthy man indeed. At MSX World 2005 he joked that he would buy the remaining OCMs needed to make production possible with some 'pocket change'. ^_^

snout, of course I do remember about this Nishi's promise - I read your article about Japanese MSX fair and proofread it's russian translation. I wrote my message because I did some calculations, got number > $200000 and became sceptical about his promise.
