Aussie based Five Star Games has announced the resurrection of the C64 – a working half-scale version of the best-selling computer of the 80s.
Developed by Retro Games, the C64 Mini console is half the size of the original C64 and is a fully functioning home computer that connects directly to your television and comes with two USB ports for a joystick and a keyboard.
The cost is A$149.95, and delivery is due at the end of March – no it’s not an April Fool’s Joke although the keyboard is just for show. A full-sized version with working keyboard is planned for later this year.
