8×2 SCART Switch from GamesCare

A Brazilian company named GamesCare has just announced an 8×2 SCART switch for R$ 689.00 (about $170).  In my opinion, the price point sits nicely between the $220 (fully featured) gscartsw and $60 (basic) Otaku switch, offering a good option for people.  I’m not sure if they have plans to sell a cheaper 4×1 version, […]

Info on the Amstrad GX-4000

Here, I wanna present you the GX-4000 from Amstrad. This console was released in September 1990 only in Europe.
