Commodorepc The Commodore brand name, once the most well known in the games business, has officially returned after the firm launched an online store selling its own line-up of branded PCs.

Commodore Gaming has begun selling its new range of PCs to gamers in the UK and Ireland, and they will later be made available across Europe from May.

The website offers two high-spec models, notably the Commodore gx, selling for £1,759, and the Commodore xx, at £2,899.

Two lower spec, lower cost PCs named the Commodore g and the Commodore gs will be available via traditional retail outlets.

Those buying a PC from the firm will be able to fully customise both the interior and exterior of their machines, selecting their own choice of components and specifications.

"This marks a new chapter in the history of Commodore, opening our webshop to offer great gaming PCs that are as unique as they are customisable," said Commodore Gaming CEO Bala Keilman.

"We're extremely excited and proud to offer our range of exceptional gaming machines and since PC gaming and online gaming is about instant entertainment, this is what we intend to deliver with machines that will satisfy everyone from the casual gamer to the professional."
