    Planet Commodore XX Gaming System

    I am planning on buying the Commodore XX

    Commodore xx: Learn more!

    It has very good reviews, for example in stuff.tv

    Commodore XX review - Gaming PC reviews and videos from Stuff.tv - the gadget guide

    Plus, it's a commodore

    The only con is that it is a bit expensive but again, it's a Commodore and it'd be cool to have a computer with the Commodore logo on it once again. Plus you can have cool skins for it.

    Was wondering if anyone has already bought one of these and how did they like it?

    I own a Commodore GX not as spiffy as the XX allthough i did take the upgraded cpu and only 1 gfx card acc to my budget.

    in a few words, i just love mine.
    It runs everything at max settings as an avid gamer its really is great not to mention to nice looks (retro c64) for the the nostalgic feel.

    I have a weak will when it comes to the Commodore Logo I would've bought one of those... IF I hadn't just recently gotten a new computer.

    Still the new Commodore systems look pretty nifty. Haven't run into them in retail stores in the US, I guess they can only be ordered online here?

    I have friends who are also Commodore 64 Fans but they never heard of the newer Commodore gaming systems, because they never saw them in stores or anything. So I think it's good that they're building them in the US, but they should market them in stores as well, not just online. So that people can see it. It's not like Dell that everyone knows about their computers. If people see the Commodore computers, with the logo, in stores I am sure theyll be tempted to buy.

    There probably is lots of interest in theses systems. I myself am planning to buy a Commodore gaming system when it hits the local stores (I don't have the cash to buy one anyway right now )

    I agree, there is lots of interest in the Commdore Gaming Systems. And let's face it, we have a whole generation of people who were kids in the 80's and grew up with the Commodore 64, and now they should be in their late 20's or early 30's and actually have the resources to buy such systems, and their loyalty/sentiments to the Commodore 64 would influence them to buy the new Commodore Gaming Systems.
