X68000 Hardware

Here is a list of hardware produced by Sharp. This list is taken primarily from the X68000XVI manual, and from bits of information from the Internet. It doesn’t include all of the plethora of third-party hardware available. For instance, the X68000 can use MSX joysticks and some games (notably Street Fighter II’) came with additional hardware to allow the connection of Nintendo Super Famicom and Sega Megadrive controllers.

The System SACOM X68000 MIDI boards require a propriety cable for connection to a MIDI synth, or you can make an adapter yourself. Details are on this site.

X68000 Models


Here is a table of the different X68000 models Sharp released over the years. This table is adapted from one which appears on a Japanese computer history website, located here.
