The new Sinclair Spectrum Vega is bringing back all those legendary games you enjoyed on the ZX Spectrum in the 1980s! It has simplified the original keyboard into a rectangular gamepad and comes preloaded with 1,000 games for the Spectrum. What’s more, you can use an SD card to load up old Spectrum games you still have lying around, and the company behind the project, Retro Computers, promises to iteratively release more free games once the console is out.
The price of the ARM-based Spectrum Vega is £100 ($150), and deliveries of the first 1,000 units are expected to begin in February of next year, provided the funding campaign goes to plan. It’s all very geeky and soaked in nostalgia, but there’s one unforgivable flaw to the whole thing: the £20 “Byte” funding tier is only four times the size of the £5 “Bit” funding.
