The C64 Mini is finally here. Loaded with nostalgia, the lil’ console sports some modern niceties as well, and a roster of 64 games.
It’s kind of hard to not like this new trend of ‘mini’ consoles. Not only do you get a cool looking little replica of a classic, but you also get a bunch of games to sift through. There’s no Nintendo-branded mini coming up this Holiday, but we do have a few others filling in that blank. The C64 Mini is one of those, and it’s a pretty sharp looking piece.
The Mini includes:
- Pre-loaded with all the Retro Faves: THEC64® Mini comes with 64 classic titles already installed, including: California Games, Winter Games, Impossible Mission II, Boulder Dash, Jumpman, Pitstop II, Speedball II: Brutal Deluxe, Street Sports Baseball, Summer Games II, Temple of Apshai Trilogy, Uridium and more.
- USB Ports: The unit comes equipped with two USB ports – perfect for adding an extra joystick for multiplayer games or plugging in a keyboard to create your own programming masterpieces.
- Customized Visuals: The unit features high definition output at 720p and 60Hz via HDMI, 4:3 ratio, US/Europe display mode options, and a CRT filter for that classic look.
- Back to the Basics: Plug in a USB keyboard and use as a fully functional home computer with C64 BASIC.
- Don’t Forget to Save: For the first time, THEC64® Mini allows you to easily save your progress in games.
- Always Optimized: THEC64® Mini supports software updates via USB flash drive so players have continued access to improved and enhanced programming.
You can get one starting today at GameStop, Wal Mart, Amazon, and Costco for $79.99 USD.
