Commodore Power/Play was one of a pair of computer magazines published by Commodore Business Machines in the United States in support of their 8-bit home computer lines of the 1980s. The other was called Commodore Microcomputers. The two magazines were published on an alternating, bimonthly schedule.

Power/Play was targeted at the home computer user, emphasizing video games, educational and hobbyist uses of the Commodore 64/128 and Commodore VIC-20 models.[1] Commodore Microcomputers initially served Commodore's business customers using the PET and CBM lines but as the business market segments standardized on CP/M and later MS-DOS, the coverage of the two magazines essentially overlapped, until the November 1986 issue, when both magazines were switched from a bi-monthly to a monthly schedule and retitled Commodore Magazine.[2]
