This work celebrates the Commodore 64 home computer, launched in 1982, still the best-selling single PC model of all time. With 64k memory and 16 colours it was deemed state-of-the-art for its era. Also state of the art is Dubai’sMeydan theatre – home to the largest cinema screen in the Middle East, giving me a fully immersed experience when I went to watch Hubble 3D recently.
Jim’s memories of the Commodore 64 are fond ones, though looking back it’s hard to believe that we could have been so enthralled by such a comparatively poor gaming scene – at least when you stop and consider how much video gaming has evolved in such a short period of time. Today we’re spoiled with a world of Xboxes, Playstations and Wiis, as gaming moves on so quickly it’s hard to keep track!
