We should invite Mr Nishi to (digitally) demonstrate his project at the Nijmegen fair. He should be able to answer a lot of our questions.

The 1chipMSX is not the Mr Nishi's project. He only participated in the financing as far as I know.

I am intrigued most by the release of MSX engine 3. The way I interpret this it is a follow up to S1985 (and S3527 before that). I imagine it is more like the Toshiba MSX engines so it will include Z80 and R800 and even V9958… well I can imagine anything of course Wink I hope we can see new MSX computers designed in Japan and Europe using this new engine…

It seems indeed that the MSX3 engine is a combined package. Very interesting to see if 3th parties are going to make their own MSX3 comp. I could image that companies like Adafruit, sparkfun, etc are going to create their own MSX3 focused on their IOT products. Which would be very beneficial for the support from the makers scene.

Where is MSX3 going 2022-01-19

We are developing the next generation MSX. We are designing a computer system that is compatible with 40 years ago, centered on a base of the same size as the Raspberry Pi using FPGA. Announced later this year, Amazon plans to sell three types of boards, built-in keyboards, and MSX cartridges around the world. It's unclear how it will be accepted, but tweeting on Twitter has received a lot of feedback.

It doesn't compete with Win or Mac computers, and it can't. It's a completely different world from iOS and Android. It's not an advanced game console like the XBox, PlayStation, or Switch. In the end, we will target the field of home-built computers for education and aim for a niche that coexists with Raspberry Pi and Jetson. I'm exchanging ideas with people all over the world on Twitter, and I'm grateful to many who have entered the computer world with MSX. I was very happy to feel that MSX was not a failure. It is a sad memory that the Japanese media repeatedly branded MSX as having failed because it was pushed by the NES.

Really looking forward to this. Will surely buy one and am very happy Amazon will sell them globally. Not sure if that means they will be available on all Amazon sites around the world or that Amazon in Japan will accept orders from all over the world (the last option may mean higher shipping fees). But surely someone will arrange a group buy Wink.

It is clear that I will buy this continuation of Standard MSX by its creator. It is not yet very clear obviously which versions will be available. Everything in a keyboard (Like MSX 2+) Mini Tower or others.
I obviously assume HDMI for TV or Monitor connection. For those who have left the MSX since 1994 and for new products, there should be a download system (games, software) Of course, the more Hardware sales there are, the more new software there will be, and even more peripherals (Joypad...)
Probably the most exciting MSX year for over 20 years!

Latest News from Nishi San:
Dear MSX3 potential users,

I have decided to include V9990 functions into new video for MSX3. It will look like 9958+9990 and 2K support.

I wanted to say: Woohoo but given the current situation my joy was very shortlived. My heart goes out to us all but most of all the people affected in the Ukraine.
