The Amstrad CPC story – Youtube video by Nostalgia Nerd

[ Octoate.de - The Amstrad CPC news portal ] The Amstrad CPC story – Youtube video by Nostalgia Nerd

Did you ever asked yourself how the Amstrad CPC was developed back in the 1980s? What was the intention of its design? Why did they change the main CPU from an MOS 6502 to a Zilog Z80 during the development? Why did they chose Locomotive BASIC instead of an other BASIC dialect? …
Nostalgia Nerd uploaded two great videos to Youtube where he had a closer look at Amstrad and the CPC development. Enjoy them!
