Its a pity the plus, and gx, fetch such silly prices on ebay otherwise I'd have got one of those instead of the cpc 464 I did get.

For what it is I think it is. It has a very limited software library and cannot play other CPC software you might want to run on the ROM thingy unless they are joystick only.

464+ and 6128+ I rate highly, but poor sales means they are now expensive.

This is an awesome add on as it's almost impossible to get most of the GX library anymore.

Yeah its nice to see the GX400 get a flashcart, i wonder if any programmers will get some CPC software running through it, obviously games that don't need a keyboard!

It's already happening, lots of games are being "ported" (hacked/modded) to allow joystick only operation.

Anyone know what's happening with this? I'm having the itch to buy another GX4000 (god help me) but this would save me a fortune on games.
