The translated headline reads: "Commodore as first love." The small column talks specificly about kids still getting excited about playing c64 games and then the writer used the two boys playing vividly on a "Commodore" as an example. Maybe the writer does not know the difference between the c64 (often referred to as "The Commodore" despite the existance of other (less) popular Commodore models like the c16, VIC20, etc) and Amigas...

Reminds me of a guy I once knew who bought an A500, an extra 1.5mb of RAM (one for the trapdoor, and one for the sidecar) and an AMAX emulation dongle - and never touched the Amiga side. I asked him why he'd done that and he said he'd simply wanted a cheaper Mac! :)

Retro isnt only in, but on the rise.
Its come to the point, where you can find articles on the Commodore 64 and Spectrum in magazines in your newsagent.
There are even retro magazines now, which means at least 20,000 people in the country must be really into retro computing and like reading about it.

What a year 2004 is turning out to be.

@ shoe and paulsamiga (HEY I SPELT IT CORRECTLY FOR ONCE!)

Not only is retro in, but a number of magazines are helping create this. Mags such as GAMEStm run retro sections at the end of the magazine (fairly sizable section too). There was also a Retro magazine which came out a while ago... don't know what's happened to it though (at least here in Oz)
