Commodore64 Joins Retro-Gaming Revival with C64 Mini

The C64 mini connects to a modern widescreen television through an HDMI connector. It also has two USB ports which allows for firmware updating. Of course, gaming is not the only thing the C64 can do. Users can also program their own games and run BASIC just like the full-size original. That is what sets this console apart, as it might be able to attract some of the DIY homebrew types.

Pricing and Availability

There is no definite release date set yet, however it will be out sometime in 2018. It seems to have a fair price tag too at $69.99 USD, which includes one joystick and HDMI cable.

    Pity that the keyboard is apparently just for show. If it worked, I’d have likely bought the Mini.

      How do you think people will do this if the keyboard is just for show, doofus?
