Red "Victory" Zemmix

The rarest of the rare, the "Turbo" Zemmix. This one is MSX2 compatible. If you have this, you are God.

 

This is one of the holy grails for classic game collectors. Information on this machine is pretty sparse on the net so if I get something wrong then feel free to taunt. This machine is basically a scaled down MSX computer, released by a Korean company called Daewoo (that makes mostly cars and DVD players nowadays) first in 1983. There are at least seven models, possibly more. Should work fine with all MSX compatible games and software. Later models have more Ram and are MSX 2 compatible. There are also keyboards, modems, disc drives, etc. all made for this system, as well as a Famicom converter that allows it to play Famicom games. Most of the games made for this system are hacks of popular Famicom games of the time, although there are a few original titles as well.

From what I understand this thing is pretty common inside Korea but virtually unheard of anywhere else. Damn it's cold in here. Anyway in the last five years I have never seen one of these up for auction except once, when some guy had his entire videogame collection up for like five grand. Very, very rare, although other people with game-related websites all seem to have one (this is where I slam my head into the wall and curse existence.) Did I mention I have an extra car I'm willing to trade?
