Well what made people buy into XBox when it first came out? It was heralded initially as going to be the biggest waste of time and no-way could it compete with the likes of Nintendo and Sega!
And it lost somewhat around 5 billion $ when all is said and done - baaad example. PS1 would be a better one, but the success still also depended on Nintendo f**cking up, which they excelled at.
Actually I think PS3 could get the closest to a "new Amiga" if its Linux-Distro is easy enough to use and to code for - I primary think of a lean&mean C-Interface and without all that autoconf-horror regular Linux has to deal with. We gonna see...
