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?
Whoa..the NES was not crappy, it was a console and could not be compared to the same market as a computer market and lets face it, Nintendo marketing was superb. CBM? Well we all know about that. When America moved on to 16 bit..we chose the Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo.
16 bit computers did well here, from Atari to Amiga to Apple.
