Yes, I heard Bil say on one of his videos that it was simply due to space constraints. The regular connectors wouldn't fit.

Hello! Since I have just bought a C116 with some games, a question popped in my mind that perhaps Bil would be able to answer. What was the rationale to change the joystick and tape ports to mini-DIN in the 264 machines? Was it to save space on the small backplanes (especially the C116 is tiny)? Or some other reason?
