Nerd prayers have been answered and the Commodore’s C64 Mini is making its way to North America just in time for the holidays. Here’s everything we currently know on where to find it, how to pre-order it, which games come with it and more!
The dork in all of us couldn’t be more excited if we tried. If you remember the Commodore 64 from the early 80’s you’ll remember how awesome (and realistic) you thought those games were. It wasn’t until years later (hello Nintendo) that we realized just how bad off we were. Still, there’s something so comforting about it all. #Nostalgia
