Spectrum Vega is going into production
We told you about the new console being made by Sir Clive Sinclair a while ago, and now, we can confirm, it is going into production after a successful crowd-sourcing project.
The Spectrum Vega is a little different to the old ZX Spectrum - the iconic rubber keyboard has been updated into a retro joypad. There'll be no tapes to load up either, as that would be magnificently stupid in 2015.
Instead of being a thing designed to get you interested in home programming, the Vega is a joy machine, meant only for playing classic Spectrum games. Of course, there's a load of online emulators that you could have, but they're not as nice as the Vega.
The machines are going to be built by a company in the UK (SMS Technologies, if you're interested) which is something Sir Clive was very keen on.
Bob Pitchford, SMS Technologies' sales and marketing director, fizzed: "The original Sinclair ZX Spectrum is a gaming product that we all remember, so it is very exciting to be working with such an iconic brand."
The Spectrum Vega will have access to a huge collection of classic games, which is good news for all.
