SPOnG still remembers the heady days of the ZX Spectrum some 30 years ago - so it's with an excited mess that we hear plans of original games developer Elite to relaunch the console.
According to the Telegraph
, the studio - responsible for a lot of hit ZX Spectrum games - is looking to release a wireless replica of the classic all-in-one keyboard computer. Rubbery keys and all. No idea how it would connect to a TV screen, but the newspaper is speculating that connection with an iPhone could work out. Hm. Think we'll take our chances with a more sane theory.
On top of this, Elite has also been re-releasing many titles from its back catalogue onto Apple touchscreen mobile devices. There are supposed plans to develop for Google Android platforms as well as consoles like the Xbox 360.
The ZX Spectrum will see its 30th birthday in 2012. Let the cashing in on the classic craze commence!
