    The CD32 could fairly be categorised as a console nobody should’ve gone to in the first place.

    All of them. PS4 with its PS4, MVS and JAMMA titles is just about gaming perfection for me. Rose tinted specs and all that. I really care not for anything else nowadays.

    I do have a hakchi2 Super Famicom Mini that I play quite a lot though. That's about as nostalgic as I get.
    Kept you waiting, huh?

    Yet it outsold the Mega-CD in the UK. MADNESS.

    That's not a shock, the Amiga had a huge following in the UK it even outsold the Snes in the UK. CD32 was a nice system on paper at a decent price (for the time), just never really used and made on the cheap

    i generally can't stand anything pre-16bit. i grew up with the 2600, amstrad cpc 464 etc but those systems are garbage to me now as the games haven't aged well. the only retro systems i still play are snes, MD, neo geo and N64...for me, the 4 systems from the true golden era of gaming! .

    Wouldn't disagree with that! Only purchased it as it was cheap, and even by 1995 many of the games were being sold of for a fiver by Game. But, yeah, Amiga games, and I didn't play my Amiga for action games once I'd gotten a Super NES.

    Did so fairly heavily for a while, if I recall. Which seems rather odd to contemplate these days. No prizes for guessing which of the two I'd rather own these days, though! (Still have a small pile of Mega CD games in jewel cases I acquired for nothing in 2002, but never got round to getting the hardware!)

    I've always felt that CD32 was a very good console name.

    To be fair Commodore UK was pretty on the ball the way they handled the Amiga. Shame the US operations weren’t as savvy. David Pleasance’s book should provide some fascinating insights once it is published.

    Just in case anyone else was wondering like I:

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...e-inside-story

    It is with great pleasure that I present you this opportunity for the very first time ever, to get a genuine insider's view of what happened to Commodore on a worldwide basis during the tumultuous years from 1983 (it was shortly after this time that Jack Tramiel was unwillingly ousted from the company) right through to 1994 when Commodore International declared Bankruptcy and to August 1995 when Commodore UK finally ceased trading.


    During this period many products which nobody asked for were produced, and products which were desperately needed were canned mid development.


    30 bucks for a book is a tad steep and that option is sold out anyway, I assume that you will be able to pick this up online once its published correct? Or is it a "No Homers" kind of thing?
