Posted in Retrogaming by Squirminator2k at 23/04/07 6:37pm CEST

Commodore Gaming's online store has gone live today, albeit in the UK and Ireland only for the time being. a European opening is due some time in May. No word on a US opening so far, which means I may not get my swanky new Commodore PC after all Sad

From the press release:

"The online store will supply the higher specification models Commodore gx and Commodore xx, while the Commodore g and Commodore gs range will be made available in retail outlets. Commodore Gaming machines are priced competitively for such high spec components and hand-finished build quality:

Commodore gx - £1759 (inc VAT)
Commodore xx - £2899 (inc VAT)

(Above prices include buyers choice of C-kin case artwork)

Commodore Gaming has also confirmed that customers will be able to customise aspects of their gaming PC, offering a customized interior and exterior. All components can be selected to build a personal specification on each machine.

Commodore Gaming now offers over 100 unique "C-kins" designs in their online store, each case being artistically painted using a patented dye process (unique to Commodore Gaming) and individually finished with a scratch proof surface usually reserved for the automotive industry.
"


I'm glad to see the Commodore brand alive and kicking again.

It's not the real Commodore though is it?

Just some brand whoring name borrowers.

And their machines are overpriced.

Bizarrely Ash, that doesn't bother me. I'm usually against that sort of thing - Infogrames whoring of the Atari brand irks me to no end - but there's some perverse pleasure in knowing that there are computers being manufactured with the Commodore logo on the case.

Go for the new Amiga instead - at least it's built by real Amiga people.
