The April 1990 issue of Zzap! 64 mentioned rumours of a
cartridge based C64 console in the news section.  Sadly, I
don't have another issue of Zzap! until the February 1991
issue, where the C64 Shadow of the Beast cart is given
glowing reviews - several ads in the magazine mention games
released for the C64 and C64GS.  I'd figure it was probably
released in mid-late 1990.
