The Commodore 64 Is Coming Back And We Need It

- Page 1

The retro gaming renaissance that has been going on lately is continuing to grow. We have seen the Sega come back, the original Nintendo, the Super Nintendo, and now we will have one more retro system to add to our collection: The Commodore 64.

The Commodore 64 is actually a Guinness World Record holder for being the highest-selling computer of all time. Estimates say that it has sold somewhere between 10-17 million units. It was more affordable than a lot of the others on the market, and it also had some pretty awesome games made for it!

The new system will be a similar plug-and-play technology as the Nintendo versions. The C64 Mini is an exact replica of the original, just scaled to 50% of the size. It will feature the keyboard you know and love, the joystick that you need, but now it will attach to your TV with an HDMI cable. You can also play multiplayer with two USB ports that will allow you to attach more joysticks.

The system is expected to cost around $70, but there is no definitive release date. The one thing we do know is that there will be 64 games installed on the system for you to chose between so your old favorites are bound to be on there!

Check out this list to see if your favorite is on there!

Sears Wish Books were basically the best thing ever. I think we can all agree that when we would receive them in the middle of summer we would immediately start planning our Christmas lists.

We have already shown you a few other Wish Books, including 1983 and 1990, but what did Christmas wish lists look like in 1991? Wish Book WebYou've got to be excited if it is in the Super
