C64 mini

A CDTV clone? Or something else? Any idea?

Nope, it's just an ARM-based system with an emulator... It's being produced because they couldn't make the funds for the full-size "THE64" and the "THE64 Handheld".

The handhelds have be postponed indefinitely (unlucky for the backers of that product, they get to choose to wait forever, or get a different product).

It's also from two of the guys who were involved with the Speccy VEGA+, and there's been a whole mess between them and the remaining VEGA+ team.

Here's a topic on the original setup

Well, if you still fancy more, there's a thread on the Pyra forums, which has a lot of information (amongst the cruft)

had phoned today with Media Markt and Saturn and nobody has it in.stock! Talked to the people and they sayed we where another Generation so it's not the biggest seller.Amazon had 9 in stock for 100 bucks,kochmedia says it is only 79.99.amazon is too expensive.

Honestly I don't get the big fuzz. The firmware doesn't allow full compability of double-sided discimages,
none functional (both+revisions) sids, etc.
It's in my eyes not a finished product.

I'd say the emulator and the real HW still stands the game. This.. well is for children... And it's kinda neat.
And I still don't understand why they didn't choose the best joystick ever, Suncom Tac-II instead of that retard joy.
I bet it has those sucking cups to stay safe on the table,
we used to have a saying about those: It's for kids with velcro shoes.

Afaik it's an Allwinner A20 SoC (Dual-Core 1GHz Cortex-A7) running VICE. I'm unsure if it's x64 or x64sc, and which version it's based on, but x64 v3.1 seems like a safe guess.

Try these on it http://csdb.dk/search/?seinsel=all&search=Box+check

The Sprite one fails on x64.

Glorified emulator. Sucks ass. The DTV is far more interesting, but nothing beats the real old hardware.

I bought one.. nice little ornament and hey, it can play games too..

Look on the bright side..

It will probably make a considerable amount of people feel nostalgic and enjoy some long forgotten games.

It potentially might just spike the interest from a few guys to remember there once was a scene, and look on google to find CSDB

And just very maybe, it will draw some new scene blood.. you never know.. the DTV managed to do it a little too.

so.. YAY!

I must admit that that mini C64 looked very cute on my desk (even with fake keyboard), although I've returned it without regrets.
