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All capacitors have been replaced by new ones as described here.
The is the biggest difference from a normal C64C PCB – the Expansion port has been replaced by a version which enables a vertical insertion of game cartidges.
This is the outside of the machine:
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.
