PERFECT CATALOGUE - X68000

G-WALK



 

The thirteenth installment of the acclaimed series "Perfect Catalog," renowned for its in-depth analysis of home retro hardware from both hardware and software perspectives, focuses on the X68000 following the MSX, diverging from home gaming consoles.


Released by Sharp in 1987, this 16-bit machine, with the slogan "Beyond the Dream," bundled the arcade-level game "Gradius," astonishing not only computer enthusiasts but also gamers of the time. This comprehensive catalog thoroughly explores the development history of the X68000, from its inception to the social context of the era, embodying the dreams of various individuals who were captivated by it during their childhood, offering a nostalgic rediscovery of the charm of that hobbyist computer.


Presented in a large B5 format spanning 192 pages, this Perfect Catalog is an invaluable resource for discussing the X68000. It provides a complete introduction to X68000 hardware specifications, including detailed information on CPU, graphic capabilities, sound functions, and communication features.


Additionally, it showcases over 750 domestically released game software titles with screen and package photos, and includes a convenient alphabetical list at the end for easy navigation. The catalog is divided into two chapters: the first dedicated to the hardware examination of the X68000 series, and the second presenting an exhaustive catalog of over 1,400 game software titles released in Japan, arranged by release year and manufacturer. An appendix includes a database listing of X68000 hardware and game software available in Japan.
