Today Sir Clive Sinclair announced news of a new low-cost games computer based on his successful Spectrum products which were released in the early 1980’s.
The Sinclair Spectrum Vega uses a low-cost micro-controller and a clever piece of software that enable the Vega to run all of the 14,000 games that were developed during the years when 5 million of the original Spectrum were being sold.
The Sinclair Spectrum Vega is simple to use but far less expensive than previous products. It plugs straight into a TV so the user does not need a computer monitor, and comes with 1,000 games built in, with the user being able to download additional games free of charge on the web.
The Sinclair Spectrum Vega will cost under £100 and will be available from the company’s site.
