I just wanted to post some of the pictures I taken at last weekends retro gaming event showing parts of our hosts epic Commodore 16 and Plus/4 collection.
Chris has a copy every game ever released for the C16 & Plus/4,apart just one game which is a variant of an existing game he owns but was released in a larger outer box.
The collection contains all tapes, disks and cartridges.
Look at all those goodies! – I found quite a few of my favourites here and I even managed to locate my very first Plus/4 game purchase. At the time it was the most I’d spent on a computer and was one of the Five-Star Game bundles which included Blagger, Pogo Pete, Ghost Town, Tom Thumb and Defence 16. I remember most of them being pretty terrible, but seeing those game covers again sure brought back a lot of memories for me.
Chris also has a nic collection of hardware including Ram packs, custom cartridges, SID cartridges, Eprom Burners and addon mods as well as a nice collection of replacement chips.
I counted about 20 Datasette units. I guess you can never have enough!
Why oh why didn’t Commodore choose the Grey/White colour combination on all their hardware? It’s so much better looking than the Beige used on the C64 & Vic-20. Just look at how nice those peripherals look in high tech grey. Loving the 1551 and no RetroBrite required 🙂
I’ve mentioned before, but many thanks again to Chris for donating a Commodore C116 to Retro Computer Museum.
I’ve always had, and always will have a soft spot for the Commodore Plus/4 and so you can probably imagine my reaction when I saw all this lot! A superb collection and many thanks to Chris for allowing us the opportunity to have a good browse around over the weekend.
