Commodore 64: Don't Call It A Comeback...

Posted by Dan on Jul 16, 2003 @ 4:01 PM
Tulip Computers, which owns the Commodore brand name, plans to relaunch the brand to take advantage in an upsurge of interest in the obsolete Commodore 64 (C64) computer and its 1980s-era games, the company said in a statement Friday.

I find this announcement by Tulip Computers to be interesting. There are a ton of C64 emulators on the market already, so it's interesting that they'll be licensing an official software emulator.

It'll be interesting to see what kind of hardware emulators they ship. Are they looking to do some kind of PDA form factor device? I wouldn't mind playing some of my old C64 games on a small portable device. I think I need to dust off that old C64 of mine... :)
