I hate to break this to you, but we're not as nationalistic as you think we are. If that's the case, we wouldn't be embracing multi-cultural attitudes the way we are now. It applies to more than just video games, you know.

For example, ever wonder why Ford is so popular in Europe, but not exactly that much so in the U.S.?

Second of all, Commodore's marketing was a very good reason why the Amiga never managed to hit with the majority of U.S. consumers. Although for some odd reason, they managed to sell a lot of C64 units in America, and almost nearly took over IBM and Apple in the U.S. at one point.

But then again, that's also due to marketing. They did a better job selling the C64 in America than they did with the Amiga. I sure as hell don't remember any Amiga ads when I was a kid.
