After years anguishing as a ghost of gaming year’s gone-by, Commodore is looking to get back into the market with it’s line of high-end custom gaming PC’s, going head-to-head against the likes of Alienware, Falcon Northwest, and Voodoo PC.
Bala Keilman, CEO for Commodore Gaming, commented “The all new Commodore range of PC’s will allow gamers of all levels to enjoy the best that PC gaming has to offer…We wanted to bring something new to the market, in the spirit of our Commodore heritage, and have worked hard to design a fully personalised product.” Indeed, each machine is uniquely painted and customized to the customer’s desire. Styles can range from the buyer’s own submitted artwork to photography, graffiti, or game art (like Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2, pictured here).

Officially called the Commodore xx, the new flagship system will be based on current off-the-shelf components.

The Commodore G system will ship with an Intel Core 2 Duo processor running at 1.86GHz, 2GB of memory and an NVIDIA 7900 GS.
Despite hopes that the new Commodore system will ship with a brand new version of Amiga OS, the Commodore PCs will ship with Windows Vista Ultimate. However, Commodore indicated that its systems will ship with a Commodore64 emulator with more than 50 classic games preloaded.
