It is a modern version of the Commodore 64, which was one of the most popular home computers of the 1980s. The C64DTV includes an emulator of the original Commodore 64 hardware, which allows it to run most software written for the original computer. The C64DTV is essentially a Commodore 64 computer on a chip, pre-installed with 30 Commodore 64 games. It features a built-in joystick controller and a composite video output for connecting to a TV. The device was designed to be plug-and-play, meaning that it does not require any additional hardware or software to use. The C64DTV was not as successful as the original Commodore 64 and it was only produced for a short period of time, it was released as a nostalgia product and a limited edition item.
