Amiga and America

Why didnt the Amiga take off as much in America as it did in Europe? Or at least as much as the C64 did? Its something thats always mystified me...

I.e, why did Americans go on using their C64s and crappy NES's when 16bit machines like the Amiga (and even the ST) beat it hands down?

Is this a reflection on the American market seeing games for consoles and apps/business for PCs? - Which as we know is how the rest of the world has now also thought since the early nineties... was the "home computing" age merely a European phenomena only? (Sure feels that way)

So if our American members could explain this it would be much appreciated...
