It’s a debate that has been raging for three decades – which is better, the Sinclair Spectrum or the Commodore 64? To mark the 30th birthday of both these marvellous micros, on Saturday at 2.30pm, Play Expo will endeavour to answer this most thorny of questions with the help of four men who should know.
Advocating the Spectrum we have John Gibson, whose programming credits include Zzoom and Stonkers, and Ste Pickford, one half of the Pickford brothers, the pair behind such Speccy gems as Feud and Amaurote.
Making the case for Commodore will be Andy Walker, whose Taskset software house gave us Super Pipeline and Jammin’. He’s joined by Jeff Minter, the hairy coder behind Llamasoft and such hits as Revenge of the Mutant Camels and Sheep in Space.
Come and quiz the experts, vote for your favourite machine and finally settle those long-running playground spats.
