Commodore 64 Games System image of LED

Commodore 64GS

This is my copy of the Commodore 64 Game System (C64GS). The only modification I have made to the system is replacing the capacitors. I even left the cardboard RF-shield inside to keep it as original as possible. The motherboard is a Version E PCB (Assy 250469 Rev. B) with the modified Expansion port so cartridges can be inserted vertically.

The inside of the machine:

The ROMs are different from the standard C64C as there is no support for a keyboard. If no cartridge has been inserted in to the machine, an instruction of how to load the system with a cartridge game is displayed.

All capacitors have been replaced by new ones as described here.              IMG_4280

The is the biggest difference from a normal C64C PCB – the Expansion port has been replaced by a version which enables a vertical insertion of game cartidges.  IMG_4273   IMG_4268

The power LED color is green.

I broke the warranty seal in order to see what condition the PCB was in. It’s always a choice to break an untouched machine….

This is the box that the system came in:

The system came bundled with a Cheetah Annihilator joystick of horrible quality.

The original game cartridge for the C64 Games System completed the system.
