Thanks for that link
Thanks op. Heat added
I still have my C64 and the first game I ever bought, Attack of the Mutant Camels by Jeff Minter at Llamasoft.
Nice one
It’s kinda disappointing that the keyboard doesn’t work also cheaper elsewhere.
As an avid C64 fan this seems a little limited, i wonder if this will become hackable to install other games/crack intro demos etc?

Also this doesn't have anything to do with Commodore (they went under in the 90s), thats why they have called it the C-64

That said it's a nice introduction to anyone wanting to get the feel of what a real Commodore 64 would be like , nothing will come close to having the real thing tho with real SID chip sounds and 1000's of games (which are still made to this day with kickstarter projects).

Will you be able to Peek and Poke it or will have Simon's Basic?

Can you reset it with a bent paperclip on pins 1 and 3 of the cartridge slot to enter these?
Commodore Amiga and I'm in!

Still hot though.
I was thinking of a mini Amstrad CPC 464, but then I remembered a certain someone...

I loaded an Atari st emulator and one of my favourite games from the time. It was better as a fond memory.
Another joystick?

Another joystick?


Hell yeah! 2 player Speedball 2 anyone? (Ballblazer, Bruce Lee, Exploding Fist, Spv vs Spy, Gauntlet or maybe Ikari Warriors). Ahhhh...happy times.
Hopefully they'll sell the joystick separately. No interest in the console but I have wanted a PC compatible version of that joystick for a while.
I am buying this just for Uridium!!
Like many on here, I’m too young to have ever touched one of these. Is this a good introduction to the console? I know it’s much loved, I’m curious to find out why
Is this site using auto hot-voting bots or something?

It's already been pointed out twice in the comments that this is available cheaper elsewhere and has been for some time.

...actually, go and play on your PS4 for 20 minutes while a game loads. It'll be worth it!"

I thought this was strange. I hate wailing on someone’s deal. But this is neither in stock now or the cheapest price. It’s just not a “deal” let alone a good one.

Grannies Garden and Frak if I remember correctly were my games of choice on the BBC
not many games included, I bet they could have fit 1000 on the memory without breaking a sweat
Smyths have it on pre-order also
This is the coldest hot deal ever.
Bubble Bobble was better on the Atari, then ported over to PS1 (even better) and now I still play on my PC! 😬

There will be no waiting with this because the games are all built in and instantly load.
But I did once try and play a PS4 game, and had to sit through all the introductory scenes while the setting and the story were explained and then all the choice of equipment and stuff, after 15 minutes still no actual game play, so gave up

Proper old me.
