They don't sell it in my country, we have to pirate/emulate the games.

I loved the Commodore 64 ran a BBS for 3 years. Great memories of the days gone by. But in todays light I dont think many if any of the games on the 64 could stand the test of time. Sometimes memories are far better remembered than brought back.


Getting Older doesn't mean it's GAME OVER
It's a better idea to buy games for your PS4
Than to buy a New Console for your PS4

I'm sure those games are at least slightly better than the zx spectrum games I have on that app on my phone, which I mostly got because I'm nosy about all things gaming, particularly the stuff we don't get in NA. Funny thing is, the ZX Spectrum Elite Collection has been discontinued for legal reasons, so I actually have an app that no one else can get now. The games aren't that special IMHO. They're too archaic for my tastes, though I'm glad I at least got to see for myself what the zx spectrum was all about. From what I've seen, commodore 64 is a slight improvement, though it still looks archaic. I highly doubt those games would make their way onto a console or handheld, unless Ninty decides to add them, because they're the most likely to do something like that, though I doubt they will either. Maybe you're best off looking for an ios/android app.

Why?

Those games are so old, the developers no longer exist, in which case there is no longer any existing copyright owner. So in essence.... the games are free.

Furiously Chaosing

@gR3yGh051: Actually, as surprising as it sounds, you're incorrect. The reason why the ZX Spectrum Elite Collection was pulled was because the devs behind the games in the collection weren't happy. The games aren't quite old enough to be considered public domain, so Elite was infringing on the rights of those who own the IPs. As far as I know, the Commodore 64 is slightly more recent than the ZX Spectrum, so I think the same deal applies to it.
