great stuff! eventho it's an experimental model, it looks great.
There's an textbox with a button, where you can leave your email and they will send an email when the reservation starts.
Might there be hope they will actually make this thing now! Smile
Suggested price is 19800 yen, if they reach 5000 reservations, which converts to aprox 122 euro (gwk.nl)
256KB ram, SD/MMC card interface, 2 cartridge slots, composite, svideo and vga output.
I'm getting pretty excited here! Smile

Reservation purchase beginning shortly.
When you input the mail address to the following form
I will transmit the guide mail at reserving receiving ..unsealing.. Hageme.

DETAILS

- Single-chip MSX(tentative name)

Quite new MSX machine finally put on the market. It is an upgrade to the "MSX2" corresponding as for the standard that is corresponding of "MSX1" in first "Single-chip MSX plan". It is a conclusive evidence with which efficient chip "Cyclone" made by the Altera company equipped with 12,000 one logic element and this "Evolving LSI" restructure MSX. And, it equips it with "Two cartridge slots" that the request was very a lot of. 'Gradius 2'Sal tree Ja' +' complete is reproduced by this.

- External memory

As a typical external memory of MSX, the easiness of a large capacity and obtaining was equipped normally and the MMC/SD card slot with generality height was equipped normally in single-chip MSX (tentative name) though cassette tape/floppy disk had been used. As a result, easily doing the cooperation such as reading the program made on other PC and MSXPLAYer becomes possible.

- Operation interface

Because the port of the PS/2 specification is prepared, the keyboard that can be used with the Windows machine etc. can be connected. The controller port can also use the device that became familiar with the hand at that time by the same nine Atari pin specification as the MSX standard as it is.

- Sound output

Even if the frequency modulation oscillator (MSX-MUSIC interchangeability) not included is built into the MSX2 standard originally to say nothing of the PSG sound source that is basic, and FM-PAC is not opened to slot 2, the charm of software for the frequency modulation oscillator is drawn out without reserve. In addition, an original enhancing WAVE sound source can be installed and a variety of music data of MSX be used. The voice output port is a stereo specification aiming at the future though the sound source of MSX is a monaural specification.

- Image output

Not only domestic televisions of video output terminal (RCA), S video, and the VGA output, etc. but also it is possible to display it in the monitor for the personal computer.
(There is a model that cannot normally display it by a part of compatibility. )

- Externals

It made it with the case made of plastic (clear blue) though it was a schedule of a simple main body of the substrate + case in the schedule at first to valuing the handling character and the installation. It is the situation to date and the compactest MSX machine.

- As a learning material

If the source program described by the VHDL form used to reproduce MSX not to mention an existing MSX language (BAISC etc.) is rewritten, the function of MSX is extensible in my hand. "Original MSX standard" that you thought about can be made. It might be also interesting that everyone thinks about dream "MSX3".

- Supply of game software

It is a sales schedule of the game software that can be executed by single-chip MSX (tentative name) in game general site "Amusement Center" that D4 Enterprises manages. It can enjoy using abundant MSX game properties.
