See the full list here: ZX Spectrum VEGA game list. Any of your favourites missing?

Manic Miner
R-Type
Chase HQ
Ant Attack
Bomb Jack

The Ultimate Play the Game titles are there though so fair play (not sure about Knight's Lore though... :o)

All things considered I do hope this Vega does well, I like the thought of a new Sinclair product.
It just doesnt appeal to me as I'm not an emulation fan. Also, I dont think it offers anything that can't be done currently for free...

Then again, I dont think I'm the target market.

I have absolutely zero experience with a Spectrum so this is interesting to me. With 1000 games and not being very expensive it's a great deal! I might get one at some point.
