Just a side note: Amazon offers the book for about 35 euros. It *is* possible to buy the book for 25 euro's through Amazon's website, but you will be buying from another shop...

But it looked like a fun book to have, so I did order one Smile

They're not directly related to MSX, but I also recommend this one:

The Ultimate History of Video Games

and this one:

The Illustrated History of Electronic Games
