This saturday the annual Spanish MSX meeting in Madrid, MadriSX, will be held. It looks like it's going to be a very crowded edition this year, as MSX Power Replay have teamed up with RetroMadriDC to create a larger, retro-oriented meeting. Apart from that, MadriSX is celebrating its 10th anniversary. The following groups will have a stand this year:

  • Ceinsur - Demonstration of several retro computers, sale of retrogames, competitions and several other activities
  • Computer Emuzone - Several spectum games and extensions on sale and display, demonstration of Stratos for MSX (their entry to MSXdev'04)

  • Martos - Keeps what he is going to do a big secret
  • MSX Power Replay - Organization of the fair and its official competitions, demonstration and sale of products from MSX groups that can't visit the fair themselves, MSX cassettes, joysticks and convertors, sale of this collection of retro hardware
  • Museo 8 bits - The best items of their massive 8 bits collection on display
  • Oldcomput - A large variety of retrocomputers such as MSX, Commodore, Atari, Amiga and Spectrum on display
  • Potato Storm - Demonstration of Bombaman, perhaps with some new levels and an Xbox running 16 different emulators on display
  • RetroMadriDC - Organization of the fair - In a separate section of the fair, they will pay attention to a wide range of retro computers and the scenes involved with these systems.
  • Retro Reus - Sale of many imported games for various platforms such as Neo Geo AES, PC Engine, MSX, Sony PSP and Sega Saturn
