nosy ;)

That's my...GX4000! https://mechafatnick.co.uk/2015/05/14/fatnick-has-a-gx4000/

Sadly it doesn't play anywhere as epic as it looks. I have some scores up on here if you want to see it in action

Yeah. And you can still buy them from some spare stock sellers. All new and boxed:

I always want to click it as it is fairly cheap. But with just one game included and not even 30 available..... Even with a flash card (don't know if that exists)....

yep yep! There's a flash cart available. 

In fact, there's a relatively healthy scene for it - they've hacked a load of CPC games so that they work without a keyboard. It's fun, for the price.

Certainly: http://www.retrocollect.com/News/c4cpc-flash-cartridge-for-amstrad-cpc464-plus-6128-plus-gx4000-now-available.html

 

It's very small scale - you have to get in touch with a guy called Gerald over at the CPCWiki Forums. That's not quit as dodgy as it sounds: http://www.cpcwiki.eu/forum/
