ZX Spectrum returns… as a retro console

The best and worst thing about the internet is that anything and everything can be remembered – and, with enough effort, recreated.

In that vein, the Spectrum is coming back.

That’s right, the ZX Spectrum — the 1980s gaming and computing platform whose squeaky tape-loading shrieks ruled the bedrooms of Britain until Amiga and Nintendo came along to ruin gaming by making it fun and accessible — is back from the dead.

We kid. Sir Clive Sinclair’s machine was flawed, but it was also magical, coming at a time of unrivalled invention and progress in games and home computing.

The new machine – the Spectrum ZX Vega – is designed to celebrate that history, and hopefully find a new audience for its greatest moments.
