The Commodore 64 or C64 was released in August 1982 by Commodore Business Machines. It was the best-selling single personal computer model of all time. The Commodore 64 became well known primarily as a gaming and home entertainment platform with well over 18,000 unique game titles. The company did not develop video games itself, but depended on third-party developers. The Commodore 64 was discontinued in April 1994.

The "64" in the name Commodore 64 refers to its 64 KiB of RAM.
