As Nishi said in the conference, MSX has been updated every 2/3 years, not like the C64 or the big failure C128.
Amiga updated better, but it was an extremely closed platform, out of any standards. Same story for the Apple PowerMac with its 68000 and its slow GUI in the 90s.
It was clear that they were no-way-out computer systems. MSX contributed very much to the Multimedia PCs, inthe 80s it was far ahead from all.
And today, all the MSX3 project is very interesting to me, it's the natural and advanced upgrade up-to-date of the MSX, the best that we could expect on this system: supercomputing, transcomputing, IoT, HD audio and video, easy programming, an upgrade for the past 8bits.
I think I will buy all devices I can, starting from the MSX0 to the MSX3 and probably the D4E device.
I don't like the crowdfunding, but I have no other option to support this project: I trust Nishi.

The V9998 and V9999 names for the FPGA VDP in the MSX3 (Engine 3) do imply it will provide V9958 and V9990 compatibility; anyone got more info on that besides the - great - Brazil interview and the 2 Japanese links ?

In 2023 the first official MSX hardware since 1994!
I would prefer MSX0 Pro or MSX3 with keyboard (separate or not), MSX Turbo-R compatibility, MSX cartridge port and HDMI (TV) because I need it!
But I trust the creator of the MSX.
Mr. Nishi San said that MSX0 Pro will be released in the 2nd half of 2023 and I will also buy it.
In the meantime, I will buy MSX0.
The game and software download system is a good idea (Project-Egg). Maybe an MSX Magazine Mook will appear.
(Can non-crowdfunders also buy it directly from Amazon or elsewhere when it's released?)

So it's an emulator on an existing handheld device. Interesting. But I'll stick with my money for now.

Finally some information of what it is. Information has been sparse even in Japanese and about non-existent in English outside these forums. I saw one English article about the MSX0 (https://retrododo.com/msx0/) but the author doesn't even seem to be aware what an MSX is.

So it's basically a module for the M5 Stack microcontroller-based device, emulator and download service. It seems it only plays cartridge ROMs? No mention of tapes nor disks.

The MSX0 Pro do seem more interesting considering it's supposedly FPGA-based instead of using software-based emulation. I would like to be able get access to some I/O and hook up MSX joysticks and other stuff, and I doubt that's possible with the M5 Stack MSX module.

If the regular MSX0 can be used like a normal M5 Stack it should have many other uses besides MSX emulation though I guess.

Here is your MSX0.... It's M5Stack Faces and Nishi put an MSX0 logo on it...

Here you can already buy it:

Why does it say EOL = END OF LIFE at that shop page X-)? Already obsolete?

Well, that fits! MSX has been obsolete for 35 years as well ^_^

LOL Tongue. Seems it will come with upgraded core 2 screen module with a touch screen... Anyways, this smells to me too much of an attempt to make something that is already more or less available.
