Commodore 16 The Commodore 16 was the follow-on system to the VIC-20, and the companion system to the Plus/4. It shipped with 16k of RAM and used the same basic case design as the VIC-20 and C-64, though in this instance the case was black in color. It used the same peripherals as the Plus/4 as well, meaning that it was incompatible with existing peripherals for the VIC-20 and C-64. The system shipped with the main unit, power supply brick, adapter box to connect it to your television set, and the 'C-16 Tutorial' program cartridge. All peripherals intended for use with the C-16 or Plus/4, regardless of whether they worked with other Commodore systems or not, were also of the same black color. The C-16 seems to have been produced in relatively small numbers and was a failure.

On April 29, 1994 Commodore International shut it's doors. Early in 1995, German PC-manufacturer ESCOM bought Commodore, though they themselves would go into receivership the next year.
