How many of us here are old enough to remember the Commodore 64? Well it appears that Commodore are making a comeback and are ready to make a splash back into the computer world with a new gaming computer that will be shown later this month during CeBIT in Germany. Specifications on the soon to be released machine are sketchy at the moment, but if you can believe the hype surrounding it – Commodore PC are going to bring the Commodore brand back into the gaming industry.

According to the source, our European bretheren will have access to the new Commodore’s upon release. The company has not ruled out a launch in North America and Asia. Commodore expects to make more more announcements soon.

The problem with a Commodore comeback is that the gaming market today is nothing like the one that the C64 entered 25 years ago — Alienware and VoodooPC are two of the top tier companies already producing gaming PCs. Also, the Microsoft Xbox360, Sony PlayStation 3 and Nintendo Wii are all strong competitors of PC gaming, with 41% of U.S households reportedly now having video gaming consoles.
