Blackcornflake mentioned: How did the PC market manage the feat of making people upgrade in order to be able to play a game?
Answer: PC's were built soon as new hardware came out, and branded as new. Therefore any new PC's bought will have been equipped to play most games. Many hardware companies were involved with the pc, and with the Amiga had too little, if any major enhancements after the A500 :-/ If the Amiga kept releasing new models all the time (instead of releasing many A1200's, of the exact same model), for example, if a CD drive was equipped as standard, aswell as 4mb ram, and ever increasing as the prices dropped with hardware, I sense the outcome would have been different
Still - AB 1 for me :-) classix are teh win
