Went and picked up this item that I ordered, today:
Amstrad CPC 464 with CTM 644 Colour Monitor, 3 joysticks, a lightpen, the instruction manuals & around 90 or so games!
Been playing around with it briefly today. I'll probably be spending most of the weekend on this thing. 😎
As expected with age, the joysticks are in need of some cleaning and tlc. I already have plenty of joysticks & controllers for these 8-bit micro systems though, so nothing major.
I'll probably purchase the disk interface, SD card reader & 512KB RAM upgrade at some point this week, for faster game loading and the ability to use CP/M!
Nice pickeup! I've just recently discovered the Amstrad scene is pretty vibrant and has some impressive releases. Makes me wish I'd kept my 6128.
I'd love to try those games on real hardware 😀
I just received a DDI5 From Zaxon at "Sell my Retro" 2 weeks ago, has 512k ram, USB and floppy interface, and an OLED display, and 3D Printed case.
Overall very happy with it. It's the only way You can get the most from these machines.
Only problem He includes no documentation whatsoever, but a bit of research or asking for help on cpcwiki will get You running quickly.
