THE iconic 8-bit Commodore 64 is being re-released – again.

A miniaturised version of the computer was released last year, but this year’s model will boast a full-sized keyboard.

The computer will be released by Retro Games in December, just in time for Christmas, and will have a price tag of US$199 (AU$285)

It will come with a full-sized keyboard, joystick and an assortment of classic games.

The original version of the Commodore 64 was released in 1982 and went on to sell in excess of 10 million units worldwide, with some estimates as high as 17 million.
