Just joined this forum with the hope to recover from a recent disaster. I am a big fan of 80s retro home computers and games and 80s in general and amongst other computers I had a Commodore 64 in great working condition with joystick, tape player, disk drive and lots of disks, tapes and a few books. There has been a horrible act - by mistake- and the lot was thrown away never to be seen again . I am still in shock but nothing can be done
I am based in Athens, Greece so preferred payment method is Paypal. Looking to buy a breadbin C64 version 2 or C64 version 3 in good working condition with a commodore tape player and commodore disk drive 1541 , joystick. Power supply, cables, users manual needed. All must be in good working condition and also want to have games ideally on disks. I have lost over 300 games which is very upsetting .
If anyone has such a set for sale and/or games , ideally on disks please let me know. I need to revive my Commodore sessions.....
Once I get all this I look forward to join the forum as well, look amazing !!!

Sounds Ruff. I guess you could start by looking on ebay as there is always a C64/joystick for purchase there. But if it was me and starting fresh, I would look into getting a Ultimate64 (ultimate64.com/Ultimate-64-Elite) this way you can download all your software to a USB, Plus all the features built in (Super CPU, Swiftlink, Ethernet Port, HDMI)
It is a very tempting idea but i want to start with the basics that were so dramatically lost. I am too impatient to buy piece by piece etc . though i might have no option but to go down that route, i will wait for a while to see if anyone in here has such a bundle for sale and if not then will start buiding
how easy will it be to obtain disks with lots of games , i sure want to have no less than 300 games on disk and disk for sure as the 5 1/2 disks remind me of so many nice things so i want to stick to old technology I guess
I am very interested! Please sent me pics of the lot you have and thanks! Only interested in the original stuff at the moment. Hopefully you have some game disks as well ? Please sent pics and info to firstname.lastname@example.org
