I was about to say this one is quoted at costing half as much.

If it's as good as I hope it is I might need to pick one of these up. I never got too into the C64 growing up, mainly because I had some of the same titles on the 7800, but it's certainly worth my attention and this might be a fun way to play some of those games. "Might" being the key word.

The more I look at this thing, the more I suspect it's nothing but a Raspberry Pi in a fancy case.  We shall see...

It's tempting, but for me personally, I'd rather have an actual Commodore 64 - especially if I can get a Commodore 64C (from when Commodore revamped the looks of the 128 and 64 to make them look a bit more like the Amiga) like the one I used to have before a friend claimed his mother tossed it out when he borrowed it from me. (No bitterness: he bought me a good sized hard drive to make up for it. :)  )


Supernatural, perhaps...baloney, perhaps not.

His mother tossed it out???  Sounds a little fishy to me :)

 

C64c looks nice, but I've learned something interesting about them.  They used a later revision of the SID chip in most of them, and they don't sound quite the same as the older model.
