The C64 Mini is Coming
The phrase "Take My Money" can be slightly overused but in this case we are screaming it from the rooftops.
We've already seen a Mini-NES and more recently the Mini-SNES (Super Nintendo) and both were recieved quite well.
Now though, Retro Games have announced a mini version of the home computer/gaming system the Commodore 64.
Reports tell us it will be available in early 2018 and will be half the size of the 80's version.
Expect it to come with a wired joystick, charging cable and HDMI port.
Ironically the console will come with 64 preinstalled licensed games, making the list some of the greatest ever built for the machine:
AlleyKat,Anarchy, Armalyte: Competition Edition, Avenger, Battle Valley, Bounder, California Games, Chip’s Challenge, Confuzion, Cosmic Causeway: Trailblazer II, Creatures, Cyberdyne Warrior, Cybernoid II: The Revenge, Cybernoid: The Fighting Machine, Deflektor, Everyone’s A Wally, Firelord, Gribbly’s Day Out, Hawkeye, Heartland, Herobotix, Highway Encounter, Hunter’s Moon, Hysteria, Impossible Mission, Impossible Mission II, Insects In Space, Mega-Apocalypse, Mission A.D, Monty Mole, Monty on the Run, Nebulus, Netherworld, Nobby the Aardvark, Nodes Of Yesod, Paradroid, Pitstop II, Rana Rama, Robin Of The Wood, Rubicon, Skate Crazy, Skool Daze, Slayer, Snare, Speedball, Speedball II: Brutal Deluxe, Spindizzy, Star Paws, Steel, Stormlord, Street Sports Baseball, Summer Games II, Super Cycle, Temple of Apshai Trilogy, The Arc Of Yesod, Thing Bounces Back, Thing on a Spring, Trailblazer, Uchi Mata, Uridium, Who Dares Wins II, Winter Games, World Games, and Zynaps.
Let's hope it does away with the extended load times of the original system.. especially the games that came on tape.
