Ballblazer and Rescue on Fractalus are worth the cost of a machine alone. I've got a 576NUC+ with FujiNet on my desk right now, been using it for BBSing and an IRC terminal when I'm using my main monitor for work during the day.

The whole machine was absolutely mindblowing in '79, nothing even came close for several more years. The fact that they managed to keep selling it until 1992 is a testament to how solid an architecture it is.

not sure how well this sold in the states but this bong Defender clone "Dropzone" was superb

It's always funny how many great computers they make but barely make any games for them and then they take pride in consoles witch are mostly Japanese made and call everyone weebs

That's a low bar and you know it.

I was going to mock it and call it a dollar store C64 but then I read this >>9152827

Well done Burgers

Commodore 64 says hi

The 800 and 400 were released in '79, and that architecture was almost wholly unchanged beyond the CTIA --> GTIA revision (which happened before the XLs were released), additional RAM on the XL/XEs, and some minor BASIC revisions until 1992. The 400/800, 600/800 XLs, and 65/130 XEs are all nearly identical, it's one big, happy, compatible family. The XLs and XEs in particular are basically just a case redesign / cost reduction.
>>9152984
The VIC-20 was the actual competitor to the 400/800 and it was pretty laughable in comparison. Not to mention the VIC was designed in Japan, and so is not American, and since the C64 was based on the VIC, the Atari remains red, white, and of course, blue.
