The MSX Player Mini


The MSX Player Mini is a device to play original MSX cartridges on The MSX Mini Replica. It works in a similar way to the classic MSX Game Reader by ASCII. It can be connected to the MSX Mini Replica trough any of the USB ports of the computer.


How to order 

Please consider that this is a totally fan-based development. For the moment, we can't accept further orders because we need to find a new affordable provider to print the circuit boards. However, if you are interested, send us a message and we'll contact you when we'll be able to order a new bunch. Our intention is that any MSX Player Mini should not cost over 90 Euros per unit.
