Quick review: Arcade joysticks with Sanwa parts
A few months ago, the ArcadeForge shop startet offering Joysticks with a Atari/Commodore compatible connector that are built from high-quality Arcade parts manufactured by Sanwa and come with a case design that somewhat resembles a Competition Pro.The cases for these input devices, which are sold at 75 Euro, are made of wood, acryl and aluminum.

In the German forum on OpenHandhelds.org, a customer posted Im Forum von OpenHandhelds.org a quick review of the device. His photos clearly show several sharp edges and the individual parts of the case have been assembled with not enough care, apparently. The user also complains about the vendor's reaction to his objections regarding the product quality. (cg) (Translation: cg)

AmigaOne X5000: customers can "register interest" with A-EON
Using a form on the A-EON website, customers can now register their interest to order a X5000 system or motherboard (quote) "for the specific purpose of reserving an AmigaOne X5000 motherboard or complete system for a future order."

The site doesn't list any information regarding the scope of delivery or the price of the product. Meanwhile, users are sharing pictures of a promotional poster for the X5000 and a screenshot of a website that was or will be used for ordering a X5000 in IRC and on Facebook:


In both cases the price for a (undefined) 'complete system' is listed as 1415 UKP plus taxes. That would be roughly 1700 Euro. (cg)

Demo party: Evoke (Cologne, 12.08. bis 14.08.)
In August, this year's edition of the demo party 'Evoke' will take place in the AbenteuerHallenKALK in Cologne. As usual, various demo, graphics and music competition will be held. There are no categories planned for retro computers, but 8 or 16 bit productions can be submitted to the 'alternative platform' competition - this might require supplying proper hardware for playing the demo though. Competitions for pixel graphics and Protracker modules are available this year.

The crowd-funded documentary 8-Bit Generation: The Commodore Wars will be screened during this year's Evoke. (cg) (Translation: cg)
