QuoteOcean Software's Gary Bracey recalled how Sugar was certain that Amstrad could take on SEGA and Nintendo - and beat them. "He was confident that the products we had were world-beaters," Bracey says, adding that Sugar had a "bullish attitude"
Quote from: Skunkfish on 16:02, 17 May 21I can't imagine that £20 million marketing budget is a real figure.... Or if it is, then they must have only spent a fraction of the budget.

Quote from: ComSoft6128 on 17:06, 18 May 21I found the article when I was looking for info on how many GX4000/Plus computers were made but all I could find was the entry from Wikipedia:"The GX4000 was both Amstrad's first and only attempt at entering the console market. Although offering enhanced graphics capabilities, it failed to gain popularity in the market, and was quickly discontinued, selling 15,000 units in total.Not the same thing - does anyone have a (very) rough figure on the production run?
