\also, you could buy a console backup unit back then and swap genesis and snes games no problem (you think SMD and SFC files were created for emus? PAH!)
An Amiga console would have rocked. Actually the original design had a slot for cartridge software. I am sad that it was canned! MSX computers had gams both on disk and carts and they were great.
I think carts that would hold 1-4MB (typical uncompressed game ??) were probably alot more expensive then disks at that time the A500 was released.
