This is what Atari should've launched.
I want this. Do you still have to type Load"*",8,1 to play a game?
I spent so much time playing Commodore 64. Soooooooooo much time.
The games list is very underwhelming. And no Space Taxi. I demand Space Taxi.
Very nice, but I like to see a add on or interface that you connect a real C64 to a HDMI screen.
I have still my old C64 with dualSID,JiffyDOS with alot off stuff, but it is a pain in the ass to get a nice picture on TFT/HDMI screens.
For the ZX Spectrum/Amiga there are HDMI interfaces available to get a nice picture (with scanlines) on flat monitors
I'm curious to see what this actually is, though. Will we be able to load our own roms on it? Can it be hacked to run Amiga games? Atari? I wouldn't mind to have one of these things dedicated to run the computer games of my youth, but I really don't won't 4 or 5 'mini' classic computers taking up space. That sorta defeats the purpose them being 'mini'.
I love how companies are all jumping aboard this bandwagon despite what others say
it would be cool to have a miniature version of every old computer or console
im just hyped for the CDI mini
The Commodore DTV from 12+ years ago was way more interesting since it was basically -meant- to be hacked up and act like a full C=64. I'd be hyped for a revamped version of that with some of the more complicated mods added on to it as a board revision.
I'm more interested in this than the snes mini
they really have found a good way of making money one these overpriced piece of plastic
I'm sure it will be able to run all C64 games you *ahem* manage to *ahem* obtain *ahem* through other means *ahem hem*
Like converting them bit for bit from the original cassettes, of course. What did you think I meant
Another company copying nintendo?
Had to be expected
Next, we will see psx hd or something like that
wait, the first old console to come back with modern specs like hdmi port was the nes classic, no?
Technically the Analogue NT (100% NES compatible, HDMI, wireless controllers) came first, but it's not an emulation machine and it's not small
Also the Analogue NT is $500 and the appearance has no nostalgia value.
64 games, not 20 like (S)NES
PS2 classic when?
64 games of nothing, SNES mini has GAMES with thousand of the best gameplay of the world. THis is the difference!
They say it's fully licensed, but I can't help noticing it doesn't have "Commodore" or the Commodore "C" logo anywhere on it...
Good luck selling your emulator shitbox for £69.99, idiots. Nice pricing, too.
US - $69.99
UK - £69.99 ~ $92.85
EU - €79.99 ~ $94.04
Why would anyone want this instead of a third gen Raspberry Pi? And you need a USB keyboard for a device pretending to already have one? Ridiculous. But hey, producing useless buttons is what must have driven the production costs up. This is disgusting in so many ways. Every single one of these mini-wannabe-consoles is such a total cash grab.
If you have money to burn, spend it on the real deal. If you're in it for emulated games, get a Raspberry Pi with a case. Even with additional cable and microSD card costs, it's nowhere near that ridiculous price-tag.
I'm getting nauseous reading posts like: "Cool! I want an Atari ST one, too!" "Super cool! I want a ZX Spectrum!" "And I want a BBC Micro!" "My pop had a gazillion of these! He'd love to have an overpriced mini version pretending to be one of the computers he got rid of because he didn't care anymore!" Jesus. Please, stop.
