Aftermarket ZX Spectrum Vega Returns To IndieGoGo To Crowdfund Plus Model

ZX-Spectrum-Vega-Plus-on-IndieGoGoIn late 2014 Sir Clive Sinclair of ZX Spectrum fame returned to the gaming industry with the aim of reviving the famous British computer. Taking to IndieGoGo, Sinclair and his team managed to smash their fundraising target and release a portable version of the computer with countless games pre-installed. Fast forward to today, the ZX Vega team are back to seek funding for a handheld version of the Vega.

The first thing to note with the Vega+ is the arrival of a LCD screen on the device. Although not aiming to rival the likes of the Sony Vita or Nintendo 3DS, the Vega+ is hoping to provide nostalgic gamers with more access to the classics on the the go. This has seen the console lose a lot of its hard edges from before, casting aside the design which was a nod to the past. Having said that, the handheld still sports the familiar branding and colours from the gaming era we all know and love.

Like the Vega before it, the plus version of the console still features over one thousand licensed games - all of which housed in an easy to use menu. The handheld is still capable of outputting the action onto a TV too, while those hoping to play on the go can make use of a headphone slot with volume controls too.

The Vega+ is available to back on IndieGoGo right now, with pledges of £100 securing a colour of your choice. More generous perks bring along all kinds of goodies, all of which going towards the team’s flexible target of £100,000.

Initially I thought this was more junk, but actually its very cool, sure you can emulate this on everything, but this is dedicated and kinda neat, being from the original people and all UK made is great... If this was a C64 one I would be all over it, Speccy though was never my thing, though I am still a little tempted to be honest :)
