It could be the weekend talking, but it seems to me no one here cares about piracy anymore? You are basically advertising a means to play pirated Famicom/NES games.

It would indeed boost preorders/sales, but I doubt it will go down well with Nintendo.

Also, since preorders started some time ago already, it's unlikely the 'concept' of the 1cm will change to include 'can play pirated Famicom/NES carts off a SD card'.

(btw should I include a massive 'Wink' here? Or have people matured enough not to feel the need to be insulted by everthing on the internet?)

better safe than sorry Wink

Why would it need to handle carts when it can emulate the circuit board contained inside every single NES and Famicom cart ever made? Such a thing would be extremely popular as no other single piece of hardware, to date, is capable of such a thing.It would also be extremely illegal Wink Tongue I'm sure there would be 5000 One Chip MSX orders if ASCII bundled every MSX game ever made with the One Chip MSX, but alas, things need to stay legal these days...

MSXA could offcourse could advertise it like can run different systems with additional codes.
Next just loby in the retro scenes about possible system.
I do see some options here however MSXA should play it smart when it comes to legal steps.
Officially they can not support the different systems because Nintendo won't go along with this one and other compannies won't.
But they could hint unofficial support is possible.
It's not the first time that I see some creative advertiseing like that.
But I think it's to late for that one and I don't think they will reach the 5000 with One chip MSX alone by themselves. But maybe I'm wrong.

DEAR ROBert (sorry, couldn't resist Wink), Unless ASCII/MSXA are in the same league as the (mostly China-based) manufacturors of 'unlicensed 3rd party accessiores, what you suggest is not going to happen.

Unless ASCII/MSXA don't give a damn about their reputation and just want to sell nifty hardware, that is Wink

I said play if they play it smart.
Really it's not the first time that a companny goes creative. (You would be suprised if you know how creative some leading multinationals can be !)
It's not just Chinese compannies. Really I have seen Japanese, DUTCH, English and Taiwanese compannies comeing up with some very creative advertiseing.

However MSX and ASCII are to late.
Setting up the correct formulation and getting it to a broad public takes more time as there deadline.
Because normally compannies that care about there reputation really take there time when they know that they are moveing on thin ice. A month is to short for setting it up and reaching the audience.
And withouth the proper time to set things up supporting it would be to risky if you care about reputation. (If they don't care then they can still launch it)
I agree on that one.

What you call 'creative advertising' seems (to me) not the way ASCII/MSXA would do business.
It's not just Chinese compannies. Really I have seen Japanese, DUTCH, English and Taiwanese compannies comeing up with some very creative advertiseing.
mostly China-based
Just read my post again, please.

...which would have been a nice short answer now I come to think of it Wink

Let me give you one example.
A combination of two very big european compannies reversed engineered some Asian compannies product then made a small change to it which wasn't covered by the Asian compannies patent and launched the product.
The Asian companny offcourse tried to take legal action. However they lost the case. Why there patent didn't protected this option. The european compannies allready filed a patent for there there product so the other party would be to late to block that one. by fileing a new patent.
Now you might think bad reputation. Well let me say this these european compannies are one of the leading compannies on that product worldwide and are european market leaders.
So much for bad reputation !!
However they took there time befor they launched there product to know that they just would be safe.

The only reason you said Chinese is because most attempt of smaller chinese companies are not that smart made. So there products will be problematic when sold outside china.

While most big multinationals and other big coperations are smart enough and do there research well enough to just pass true without looseing there reputation. Like I said this takes time.
Time which ASCII and MSXA don't have any more with the current schedule.

And that's the final comment from my hand about it.
