ZX Spectrum Vega+ Indiegogo campaign announced

zx vega plusThe ZX Spectrum Vega+ is looking for retro gaming fans to back its campaign.

Last year Retro Computers unleashed the ZX Spectrum Vega, with the backing from Sir Clive Sinclair no less.

It seemed to be a success, launching with 1000 ZX Spectrum titles including such names as Skool Daze, Sabre Wolf, Atic Attack, Jack the Nipper, Auf Wiedersehen Monty and Horace Goes Skiing all pre-loaded.

History is to repeat itself, or so hopes Luton-based Retro Computers, as the ZX Spectrum Vega+ has launched its Indiegogo campaign page.

zx spectrum vega plus gamingThis time not only is it portable, but it’s been designed by Rick Dickinson, who created the industrial designs of all of Sir Clive Sinclair’s ZX computers, so it looks pretty special too!

The Vega+ is a new low cost hand-held games console with a colour LCD screen and 1,000 licensed games already installed.

The Sinclair ZX Spectrum Vega+, to give the product its full name, is based on Sir Clive’s hugely successful Spectrum products that originally landed in the early 1980s. Me and my brother actually owned a ZX Spectrum +2 after our Vic 20.

You get all the features of the ZX Vega and more, including stereo output so that you can immerse yourself in all those gaming sounds and music of yesteryear.

The ZX Spectrum Vega+ is the only games console that exists with 1,000 licensed games already included and with both an LCD for anywhere use and the capability to connect to a TV for home use.

Currently the chance for this machine to exist is in the lap of Indiegogo right now, with a number of perks available to anyone that wants to support the Sinclair ZX Spectrum Vega+.

These start at £5 and go all the way up to £1050 – you need to chip in at least £100 to get an actual console but they are available in a range of colours.

You can back this project by visiting the Indiegogo page.

The original ZX Spectrum Vega is still available to buy from Retro Computers.
