A new portable version of the classic Speccy computer will be released next month, with 1,000 games and a £100(ish) price tag.
After raising over £350,000 in crowdfunding from retro lovin’ games fans, the Sinclair ZX Spectrum Vega+ will be released on October 20, although that’s only for those that actually backed its IndieGoGo campaign.
Although it was supposed to be out in September, Sir Clive is promising that the Vega+ will be available to buy online for everyone before Christmas. There still isn’t an exact price for it, but it’s still expected to be around £100.
You’ll only be able to buy the ‘classic’ black version though, as the limited edition versions with red, white, or blue (do you see what they’ve done there?) bases have already sold out to backers.
The Vega+ is a portable console with its own built-in screen, and completely different to the original Vega – which we weren’t too impressed with when we gave it a test drive last year.
There have also been legal problems that’ve left it in doubt whether the Vega+ will ever be released, but that all seems to have been sorted out now.
