For the 70s or early-80s American kid, their earliest memories of video games at home are linked to systems like the Atari 2600, Intellivision, Colecovision, and the Commodore 64 computer. But for our counterparts across the pond, the ZX Spectrum was all the rage.

Now, the system that yielded UK hits like Elite, R-Type and Manic Miner is returning in a new svelte form. Dubbed the Sinclair ZX Spectrum Vega, this is an all-in-one controller and console combo that will surely appeal to the retro vibes in any British Gen Xer or gaming enthusiast. And we use the word ‘enthusiast’ because with a whopping 4,000 potential games (it comes preloaded with a whopping 1,000), this could take decades to explore.
