Have you heard?!!!

The ZX Spectrum is to be re-released as the ZX Spectrum Vega and will come preloaded with 1000 ZX Spectrum titles!!

I spent many a miss spent hour playing on a ZX Spectrum when I was young (yes I am that old!!)

To be released with only the keys you need to play and only for £100!

Think I am gonna pick one of these up for pure nostalgia!!  :pimp: :yes:

Heh, the Spectrum was my second computer (after a ZX81), it's really tempting to get a chance to play stuff like Manic Miner, Jet Set Willy and Jetpak all over again, but there's also a part of me that worries that the rose-tinted glasses attitude might be preferable to reality ;)

I still occasionally run a spectrum emulator to play Ranarama and there are plenty of games I'd still put in my top 100.

I've never heard of this thing before.
I like to stare at the sun.

Ranarama was awesome, still have fond memories of playing that whilst listening to Afterburner by ZZ-Top back in the mid 80's :D
