I have to agree with you Galahad. I too, have a PS2 and also wait until games are cheap as chips. I don't play games as much as I'd like to these days with so many other projects on the go.
I also do agree that the release of a new stand alone Amiga would have to be something special to get itself back into the top slot again. Something that would be extremely difficult and costly to do. Anything that was ever likely to be released would still effectively be an Amiga with PC architecture in order to compete in todays market.
Strange thing is though.... contradiciting myself here...I'd still probably buy any new Amga as I'm a true Amiga fan like all you guys!
