But even so, it didn't matter that much, because computers and consoles have always been different concepts, even though they shared some of the games. Back then, I didn't want a NES, Megadrive or SNES, simply because I wanted to be able to do computer things and play computer style games. And for that Amiga was an undisputed Queen, circa ~1987 - 1992, before PC finally came down in price and up in gaming capabilities. When I first saw Defender of The Crown & Lost Patrol at some computer fair in the late 80s I knew the 8-bit era is over and I just have to beg/steal/borrow to get on that crazy 16-bit train. For the ground-breaking memories from that heady period it's still my favourite micro ever. Currently have an A500 with Gotek & ACA500+. Pity they skyrocketed in price during the Covid era, especially the A1200...

Quote from: Shaun M. Neary on 14:52, 28 January 22For you maybe, but for a lot of the consumer market by the time 1990 rolled around, they wanted to game and that was it. Why do you think Amstrad attempted the console market?Also the Amiga's were skyrocking pre-Covid as well. I got my A500 in 2018 I think and the prices were starting to soar even then.
