Get your slanders right first: VIC-64 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Commodore_64)
And all that rubber doesn't make for a good doorstop? Could have fooled me...

I don't really think it helps to make your point to quote a Wikipedia article that contradicts it for anyone that can be bothered to read past the first paragraph. It does, however, help me make my point, that the C64 owners on here seem to be miles ahead in the talking-utter-cr@p leagues.
P.S. From another comment, it cost an extra twenty quid to add two joystick ports to a 48K Speccy. That hardly compares with the extra two-hundred and twenty-four quid to buy a C64!

Mayhem wrote:As I recall, the 48k version of the Speccy launched at £175. So that's a difference of £175 maximum for the C64 at the time of launch, and my research showed many places doing it for £300 by Xmas 1982.

That thread was entertaining and informative.
This one is just tragic.
