One of only two home consoles to originate from the UK, the other being the BBC bridge companion. The GX4000 was Amstrad's short-lived attempt to enter the games console market. The machine was released in Europe in 1990. The GX4000 was actually a modified CPC 6128 Plus computer.

Initial reviews were favourable, the console had impressive enhanced graphics, a huge colour palette of 4096 (more than the 16 bit Sega Mega Drive), hardware sprites and hardware scrolling. It retailed for £99 and came bundled with driving game Burnin' Rubber.

Unfortunately, the console was not a success, it arrived late and with little software support, the games that did make it out were usually little enhanced CPC software, very soon the machine was being sold for as little as £29.99, it was simply outgunned by Sega and Nintendo, who were both moving into 16 bit technology, and already had huge success with their 8 bit systems.
