I never knew Sony made a cyberdeck
Good god I want one so bad!
I can’t believe this is the first time I’ve seen one.
@requiem I’ve know about them for a while, never seen one in person though.
@vertigo why rip out the VDP when you can already slot in a Sunrise #Graphics9000 or #Tecnobytes #V9990 #Powergraph; both expansion cards based on the #Yamaha #V9978 VDP?
This expandability was one of the beautiful things of the #MSX standards.
Precisely because it's a cartridge. That makes the hardware prone to breakage, and blocks the port from other peripherals you might want to use. The VDP sits at a different I/O location, so system firmware can't talk to it. Etc.
Replacing the VDP internally fixes two of these three issues (and a ROM swap the third).
