Hi,

I don't know if this book has been covered here already, but I could not find it on the forum.

It's the book "MSX - A História Completa Do Computador Ideal Para Jogos"
I think it was released in 2016.

It's a very nice overview of many MSX games that were published. Every year has its own chapter. The early years take up the most pages. Some games are given their own page. Most games have a short description and photo.

Knowing that there are not many books on MSX games, this is a great addition! I acquired it for around €30 including shipping to The Netherlands.

I also have The Legend of Konami book. Are there any similar books like these two?

I came across this book again and was very happy again about its content. There are not many similar MSX games books I suppose. The official description is "Old!gamer coleção consoles MSX vol.5".

It's in Portuguese, of which I can read most because of knowing Spanish. If you do not master these languages, it might be still worth it because of the pictures.

Here I list a collection of MSX books in PDF version, most of them are in English since it's a universal language and I know it Smile , some are in Spanish, Portuguese and Arabic (Arabic ones are scanned by me).

Thanks gents!

Who is the administrator of generation-msx.nl?
The book that I mentioned is not there.

"The Legend of Konami" and "Konami's MSX Legacy: The Unofficial Story" are also not on that list.
