Bazix (pre)sells 50% of OCM stock

Topic: MSX Revival

Just 10 days after Bazix started taking pre-orders for the brand new One Chip MSX the stock-tracker on their website shows they have already 'sold' more than 50% of their stock. When asked how many units this would actually imply the answer was: "Enough units to make a special RoHS and CE compliant version feasible, but fewer units than would have been required to sell them for the price we had initially hoped for."

According to an article published in issue 50 of the British magazine GamesTM we're talking about something in the order of 500 units, leading us to believe Bazix have managed to sell 250 units in just 10 days. It looks like those 500 units won't last long indeed...

No, what they meant is that originally they wanted a lower retail price. This wasn't possible because of the added cost of making it RoHS and CE compliant.
