MSX games

From Sega Retro

The MSX is an 8-bit home microcomputer standard announced in 1983. Led by Microsoft of Japan (now ASCII), the MSX concept was to create a standard format for computers, thus eliminating customer confusion and compatibility issues which were ripe in the early 1980s.

There are hundreds of MSX compatible machines from numerous manufacturers, sold all over the world between late 1983 and 1995 with varying degrees of success. The format was most successful in its home market of Japan, where over 5 million units were sold, but also sold well in European markets such as Spain, with its design greatly influencing the market as a whole.
