Tell me you don’t want one!
I ordered the Recreated ZX Spectrum and it’s in the mail, can’t WAIT to try it out! (I was one of the Kickstarter backers.) The ZX Spectrum (thanks to Sir Clive Sinclair) was a MAJOR boost to my career and it’s awesome to see it being brought back in a really smart way. (It’s a Bluetooth keyboard so you can touch/feel the original device, but it will run any game instantly through an emulator on all mobile devices.)
The device is here:
The games are here (remember this is INCREDIBLY retro stuff):

I’m amazed how the Internet Archive continues to grow. They even have the PC Aladdin Video Game in there. (I programmed the Sega Genesis version that it’s based on.)

NOTE: The Emulation was a bit slow/jerky on my PC.

Happy to see articles like this, that are starting to reveal the potential of cloud gaming
I had our resident fighting game expert Jeffrey L. Wilson play King of Fighters 13 over PlayStation Now. He plays the game often over Steam, and offered the best sense of the game’s responsiveness when streaming: He said it looked and felt like it was a local, console version of the game. He even executed some of his favorite combos without issue. For fighting games, when frame counting and reaction times are key, this is impressive.
