AMSTRAD GX 4000

The console version of the Amstrad CPC 6128+ computer and possilby the biggest log in the history of video games. System is compatible with most CPC 6128+ software. While the computer version was very popular in Europe this game machine was out of the stores something like a week after it's release. Same thing that happened to the Commodore GS, nobody wants a scaled down computer for the same price as the real thing.

So I managed to get one of these off Ebay for the amazing low price of 1 British Pound (not counting the rediculous shipping price from overseas.) For some reason it took six months to deliver (only after repeated bagering of the seller with threatening e-mails I might add.)

Now I have it, but I haven't tested it out yet becasue I'm too cheap to pony up $30 for a converter for that wierd two pronged European plug thingy they use over there.

Fun fact: The two companies responsible for the games on this machine were Ocean (Now Infogames UK) and US Gold (who eventually became Edios, of Tomb Raider fame.)
