From the live stream:

  • Approximately 400 units preordered
  • The amount of units paid is inferior to the minimum needed to start production but Alberto has 100% confirmed that the project will go on and the computer will be produced
  • A second batch is not guaranteed. Alberto has confirmed that they will produce a bit more units than those paid (there will be some stock left but not much)
  • Preorder and first payment period will be extended one month (throughout October)
  • Most chosen colour of the case: red, black and blue (in this order)
  • Most chosen colour keyboard layout: 80% grey/black, 20% rest (black, white)
  • "Anti-ghosting" keyboard

Probably all of these will be customizable:

  • Type of Cherry MX keyboard switches: blue or brown
  • Design of cursors keys: PC or MSX alike (Sony HitBit)
  • Colour of the cursors (they can be different from the colour of the case)
  • Colour of the cartridge slot covers (they can be different from the colour of the case and even transparent)
  • Security fuse??? (clarification from the MSXVR team needed!)

He is still speaking... LOL!

  • Raspberry 4 is completely discarded (lots of issues) and will be not used for the MSXVR
  • Preorders coming from everywhere (mostly from Spain, The Netherlands and Japan)

Checked. No subtitles. That makes it quite hard for the non spannish to understand what the guy wants to sell.

Spanish auto-generated subtitles which you can auto translate to English which is quite a mess.
If they want a bigger audience and more sales, they will have to realise that the biggest part of the world doesn't speak/read Spanish.

Ivan, what does this mean? Im sure the first payment has been chosen so production can start from this money. Does it mean 400 pre orders are not enough? Or does this mean people have pre ordered but then didn't pay for their pre order? Is that even possible?

400 paid pre-orders give a big leap of faith.
Now I hear that the reservation phase is one month longer than announced. I welcome this, but does that mean that production will start later?
For non-native Spanish speakers I would also like to see more transparency. Either a newsletter or an info mail would be great!
