With 1,000 games preinstalled you won't wait around an age for games to load, as you did with the original. You can also play almost any ZX Spectrum game (that you have downloaded or personally programmed) via the Vega's microSD slot.
The ZX Vega is connected to a TV using video and audio outputs, plus a USB connection for power. The console itself has ready-mapped buttons for all included games, and allows you to use a virtual keyboard. Also see: UK home computing timeline.
