The past is coming soon

So, on March 25, the A500 Mini will be available from its official name. At €129.99 with us, the mini microphone will come with a gamepad with a design inspired by the popular Amiga CD32 console, but also with a vintage cream white two-button mouse of the best taste.

As usual with micro-controllers of this type, the A500 Mini will allow the use of case backups, but also to switch from a 60Hz or 50Hz display frequency to the most demanding European coils. There will also be a display filter that mimics the look of last year’s CRTs.

However, don’t be fooled by the pictures: even the mini console case reproduces on a very small scale the original keyboard of the 1987 bike, it has only pure aesthetic function. Retro Games Ltd came under fire for this choice when it released its first Commodore 64 mini console a few years ago… before introducing another model with a functional keyboard. It wouldn’t be surprising to see the manufacturer do the same with the A500 Mini in the future.

If 25 games are included in the device immediately, it will also be possible to add more via the USB port. The A500 Mini is therefore compatible with WHDLoad, which will allow the installation of new Amiga 500 titles – but also the Amiga 1200.
