What's this then? 'Later this month it will show off a "new breed" of gaming PC.'

Just a souped up PC or the basis of something more? What a shame the Amiga rights are not in the hands of CBM - I never thought I'd say that!

I wouldn't be entirely surprised if this didn't end with some kind of joint venture with Amiga Inc.


I'd welcome that GET IT DONE and out the door management attitude thats for sure!
Wish THEIR management would use a defibrillator on Amiga to get some action.

Tip my hat to C= !

I'm saying that it is probably just a standard (high end) PC.

You can get excited if you want.

Maybe they could by the rights to GEOS and release GEOS x86-64...

Launch a new OS on affordable hardware...what a concept...

Maybe they want to collect much money with that highend PC-machines and parallel to that they release a new amiga. Like Commodore did in the past, but into the other direction (first amiga, then pcs).

I just read an interesting article on the new Commodore computer on Joystiq..

http://www.joystiq.com/2007/03/06/co...nd-gaming-pcs/

At the end of the article they even made a little update too!

"[Update 1: The Commodore army has risen and chanted in unison: "don't forget the Amigaaaa" and promptly sally forthed.]"

and pointed to this link..

http://www.pro-g.co.uk/news/06-03-2007-4930.html


Lots of interesting opinions and views on this, and it certainly sounds like many people want to see Amiga come back with this new Commodore venture..

It's being launched at CeBit on March 15th, and...

"Commodore Gaming will be making further announcements at the launch, and the company promises there are some 'very exciting' aspects of the product still to be revealed."

I doubt the very exciting aspects will be that exciting for the Amiga crowd, but you never know.

I'm not usually posting to the forums, but when I read this news item I remembered something. I was in Salta, in Argentina a few weeks ago and I saw a guy coming out of a big electronics shop with a cardboard box in his hand with the commodore logo all over it and text saying 'Commodore high-end Multimedia Computer' or something. It also had some pentium or AMD logo on it if I remember correctly. What was that all about I wonder? At that time I thought it was just someone who had bought the brand and started making PC's under that name...

@Logicalheart

Not much different C64’s use of Microsoft’s Basic (used as a form of OS).

Ready made PCs with DFI built motherboard would be nice.
