The modernised model, simply called The C64, features updated technology, but the design will largely stay the same, manufacturer Retro Games has revealed.
The C64 will include 64 pre-installed games, including California Games, Paradroid and Attack Of The Mutant Camels. The console will have a USB connection that allows players to install additional games or programs, which can be downloaded from the C64 games archive.
At a price of around US$140 (RM579), The C64 comes with a joystick that can be connected to one of the four USB ports, and it can be hooked up to a TV or monitor with an HDMI cable.
The C64 will go on sale on Dec 5. – dpa
