Celebrating the upcoming 25th anniversary of MSX, D4 Enterprise are currently selling the last 250 One Chip MSX computers from the initial batch of 5,000 at 25% discount. As a result, sale price (in Japan) is now 15,590 Yen (at current rates about € 85,-) ex. shippnig and VAT. Needless to say, the offer stands for residents of Japan only.

Well.. I am getting more and more doubtfull about ever seeing a "western version" of the OCM. And of course th 25th birthday is a nice excuse for the 25% off, but I guess they just can't get rid of those last ones anymore? Whe else take 25% off?
Maybe it's an idea to see if someone cat get his hands on a few, to sell the the Western people still waiting for the OCM....

I think OCM Western Edition is coming out right between Phantom Game Console and Duke Nukem Forever video game

Maybe they are giving a discount because they are about to release the OCM 2.0 . Wink

More likely they are giving discount because they are siting on a relatively small stock of 5000 units for almost 3 years, and whoever invested in production run is anxious to recover at least some money...
