Generation MSX is an attempt to catalogue all software that was released commercially for the MSX system.
Most software in the database are of the boxed, commercial variety but there are exceptions:
- Shareware, freeware and general Public Domain software are generally not present but they may be added.
- A number of unreleased MSX games are referenced. The status of these games varies; some exist in a near-complete or demo form while others never progressed beyond the announcement stage.
There are no downloads of the games in the database as Generation MSX is solely concerned with providing information.
