Start your CPC collection here

CPC 464 home micro

What you see above should really be a nice start in your Amstrad CPC retro gaming career, whic, trust me, can be most fulfilling. Of the thousands of CPC games released, this eBay auction gives you one whole hundred, complete with a CPC 464 micro, a colour monitor and five joysticks to enjoy them with. Seller ships only within the UK and your average colour 464 usually sells for a bit more than 20-25£. This one could go for more than 40£ though. 

Ah, and non-UK residents that would like to try some classic CPC gaming could follow this link to the frankly amazing and happily freeware CPCGamesCD.

After all, the Gemini is nothing more than an Atari 2600 clone manufactured by Coleco. Oh, and apparently -if you live in the US- this working Coleco Gemini eBay auction might be of interest.
