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!

Xyphoe, well known for his great Amstrd CPC game videos on Youtube, just uploaded a new video in which he celebrates the 30th anniversary of the Amstrad CPC 464. This one hour video features Darran Jones, Larry Bundy Jr. and Steve Benway, who altogether look retrospectively back at the history of the CPC 464, the CPC games, the competition with the Commodore 64 and the Sinclair and the actual development of course. Thanks for this great video Xyphoe!

pushnpopnews_thumb.pngPush’n’Pop published an article about the community Amstrad CPC projects for 2014 and 2015. You will find a lot of software here and see that the Amstrad CPC users are still active :). There are some new demos on the way, there are some games in production and you can expect some new hardware, too. Toms and Hicks try to keep the list up to date, so if your project is missing, you should write them and change that.

You can find the list in the articles section of Push’n’Pop.
