Better than Beta.

This is way off topic but I have to disagree Pat. Although Betamax missed out in domestic video it was used for some years in the pro field as the first sensibly priced digital sound carrier in conjunction with the Sony F1 system. Vastly superior to VHS in my B) professional :lol: opinion. Far more versatile and much less prone to drop-out...think I might have one for sale somewhere if you're interested :D .

 

(Deftly back onto topic) loved that game, listened to it on the radio and had several heart attacks. Enjoyed the replay more though!

Early version of Video Cassette Recorders, both were in production until one bought out the other and decided just to manufacture one (VHS), which in turn Made all Betamax Tapes and Players Obsolete.

 

A bit like the CD PLAYER/RECORDER is now making the VCRs a thing of the past.

Not that bloody old Mark.

 

I remember when satalite TV was a new invention from America and CD's were on tomorrows world with a young carol vorderman telling us we would be able to buy them in a year or so.

 

Bet all you oldies have far more stories but its strange that in a few years CD / DVD will be obsolete and everyone will have a hard drive recorder at home with a memory stick containing all their music for direct plug in to your car or stereo etc.

I remeber when Beta got smashed by the VHs co-operative & you could tell the beta owners in the video shop, deliberating over the whole 16 tapes on offer to hire, whilst Vhs had a range of about 6,000 fekin titles...That was my bigegst Beta beef.

 

I do recall seeing Conan the Barbarian on beta when it was hot of the press.
