Commodore Gaming Machines Are Back?

Commodore Gaming MachinesWho would’ve thunk it? Commodore is looking to get back into the computer business by creating a line of gaming machines, looking to compete with the likes of Alienware or Hyperion and others who make custom gaming rigs. They will debut the line in Germany on March 15, 2007 at Cebit, and attendees will get the first shot at trying them out. They also promise some surprises.

“25 years ago, Commodore launched the best selling personal computer of the late 20th Century, the C64, and defined the early computer games experience for millions of people worldwide,” said Bala Keilman, CEO for Commodore Gaming. “We are privileged and excited to bring the Commodore brand back to the gaming community and mark a new chapter in its history with this exceptional machine. We’re sure that it will deliver what gamers need and want.” Source: Commodore returns with new gaming PCs

I don’t know how good they will be, or how well received they will be, but it certainly is interesting, I myself never owned a Commodore 64, I had a few Atari computers instead, but, I will certainly check one out the first chance that I get. If someone at Commodore wants to send me an evaluation unit, I will certainly try it out.
