[Editorial] Guess what’s next on I ❤ Old Games! – 08/09/19


Hello guys,

I’m back from a week of sea, relax, and a lot of reading. In these days under the sun I almost managed to catch up with my backlog of unread Retro Gamer magazines. Now I’ll try not to leave any mag behind and read them in time. I regret only one thing : I haven’t put my hands on the C64 that Unieuro was selling at a bargain price of 6,99€. It isn’t a console I have always wanted actually but when I saw it on shelves at that ridiculous pirce I tried everything to buy it but, as you can imagine, the scalpers were already out there and they cleared all the stock selling it the day after at three times the price. In the meantime I’ve preordered the Mega Drive Mini, coming out in Italy on October 4th and the PC Engine Mini that will be out next spring. Now I only need a TV with 325986 HD outputs since mine has only three I’ve already transformed in 9 thanks to three switches. Next step will be buying two super switch with 5 ports each in order to have 17 total ports.


Ciao a tutti,

Sono di ritorno da una settimana di mare, relax e tanta lettura. In questi giorni sotto il solo ho avuto modo di recuperare quasi tutto il tempo perso negli ultimi mesi e sono quasi in pari con i numero id Retro Gamer. Solo di una cosa sono dispiaciuto: non essere riuscito a mettere le mani sul C64 Mini che Unieuro stava scontando selvaggiamente a 6,99€, Non è un pezzo che abbia mai desiderato più di tanto, ma quando ho visto che era in vendita a così poco ho cercato in tutti i modi di comprarlo, ma come si poteva immaginare, i bagarini hanno fatto piazza pulita di tutto rivendendolo il giorno dopo al triplo del prezzo. Nel frattempo ho preordinato il Mega Drive Mini, in uscita in Italia il 4 Ottobre e il PC Engine Mini che uscirà la prossima primavera. Adesso mi serve solo una TV con 325986 uscite HD dal momento che la mia ne ha tre che con gli switch sono già state trasformate in 9 che è il limite massimo. Il prossimo passo saranno due super switch ha 5 porte ognuno così da avere un totale di 17 porte.
