The C64 mini is going LARGE and feature packed! - Full sized version of the 80’s best-selling home computer (December 2019)


With the resurgance of retro gaming hardware enabling us to play old classics on big TV's with lots of built in games such as the NES Mini, SNES Mini, Playstation 1 Classic, NEO GEO Mini,PC Engine Mini and the C64 Mini you'd be forgiven in thinking there wasn't much else to get excited by the end of this year. Well The C64 crew have something to shout about and in a pretty big way, as they have just announced the full-sized version of ‘THEC64’, will be coming December 2019!


As noted by the post on Facebook... The full sized THEC64 has a full working keyboard, comes with an updated micro switch classic joystick which plugs into one of the four USB ports, and connects to any modern TV via HDMI. It features three switchable modes – boot straight into original C64 BASIC, VIC20 BASIC or switch to the Games Carousel and play one of the 64 built in games in 50Hz or 60Hz, with optional CRT Filters/Screen modes.


If that wasn't enough to get you excited, they also go on to say. As well as the classic C64 and VIC20 BASIC modes, the pre-installed games include such classics as California Games, Paradroid and Boulder Dash; with new additions like Attack of the Mutant Camels, Hover Bovver, Iridis Alpha, and Gridrunner; topped off with the recently released shoot ‘em up Galencia and text adventure Planet of Death to let you relive the glory days of true keyboard gaming... All loadable and saveable via a USB flash drive!
