During the early days of the personal computer there was a force to be reckoned with in the shape of the Sinclair range of computers, these were ideal for the home and many of us in those days learnt programming in order to make the little device do something, this was the start of the home computer revolution and Sir Clive Sinclair was there in the thick of it.
Today the market is dominated by a few big brand names, but the Sinclair is back and this time it is taking on the games market. The Sinclair ZX Spectrum Vega+ is a smart looking hand-held games console with a touch of the classic Spectrum look thrown in for good measure.
Sir Clive Sinclair says: “The present surge of interest in retro products inspired me to plan the Vega+ as a handy games console which can be played anywhere.”
This may not be the personal computer of the past, but it could be the next hand held games machine to hit the market, it plays classic games and so there is a market waiting for something like this to come along, but is the Sir Clive Sinclair and Spectrum names big enough to push this along? Sure they are and we should be seeing the Sinclair ZX Spectrum Vega+ going on sale by the end of the year.
The Vega+ is very simple to operate. Just switch on and start to play, either on the built-in colour LCD or plug in a suitable cable and connect it to your TV (PAL or NTSC). The 1,000 licensed games are easily accessed through a menu based system and load immediately and automatically, taking you directly into the game play mode.
The Sinclair ZX Spectrum Vega+ hand-held games console will come in three cool colours, red, white and blue, you can get your hands on one from just £100 while stocks last. For more details, news and other information on this little games machine go to the Retro Computers website.
