The Null Device
The latest in minimalist video gaming: a console that plays old
ZX Spectrum games
. The device attaches to a TV, has a controller modelled
on the Nintendo 64's, contains 36 old games and will retail for £9.95
in the UK (which is around A$30). No idea what's inside it, but I'd bet on a
Speccy-like device with custom firmware.
All in all, sounds like a clever idea; old games often have gameplay equal or
superior to contemporary titles, and can be had cheap (or free, in the cases of
some generous copyright holders). Wonder if it'll catch on.
