The web-site 8-bit Magazine Rack hosts an impressive overview of retro computer mags from the years before. Printed magazines converted to a digital variant on about every gaming and computer system you can think of. And yes, that includes the MSX system as well.

A while ago, MRC user CopperPod set out to make a site about Danish retro magazines, which quickly evolved into an attempt to present a complete and comprehensive overview of about all 8-bit retro magz that had ever been released. And so he begun collecting files and links to be published. At the moment of writing, the covers about 900+ international Retro Computing & Video Game Magazines.

It sure is an interesting feed of retro magazines that are displayed. Mags like Zzap64, Atari ST review, CU Amiga, ST action, MCCM, MSX user, and Mean Machines are just a few to mention. Systems like Atari, Commodore, MSX, Sinclair, Altair, Nintendo, Sega and all the others. Impressive, to say the least, to see all these mags in one rack.

If you're a fan of old skool mags, or are in need for read, have a visit at the Retro Magazine Rack and experience the pioneering days of home-computing through a selection of magazines published in the 70s, 80s and 90s. It's free, without ads, and in houses 11 different language prints.

@ro
Thanx a million for the mention Big smile and to all readers for your interest.

The RetroMagz.zapto.org is a shortener, sorry, I just thought the google sites address a bit long.
I will find a nice REAL domain shortly (the above links will be kept active too, just in case).

I still have a bunch of magz to add, when I have time, and you are all welcome to write me with suggestions for whatever I've forgotten or if you have better sources. Murdoch

Cheers to all.

MSX is the best... I just bought a Talent TPC-310 MSX2 (not cheap) and recently got my hands on a very cheap (£17) SoftCard module, so now I'm just... Running Naked in a Field of Flowers

P.S. For the most MSX magazines, naturally, you must "journey" to Spain (+Argentina), Brazil (PT), the Netherlands, Italy, and France, Smile
I will be adding Japan at some point, I was just being selfish adding languages that I had a fair chance at understanding. Murdoch
