I mostly agree.
Although, had the payed CadTrack up front (and I think it's a bogus patent myself), it would have been less than $10M.
And Commodore was killing itself..
The question is, if that hadn't happened, would the CD32 release in the U.S. given them a new lease.
It would have been a year and a half plus lead on the Playstation. Much less expensive than the 3DO...
There was a spot in the market for it and there was potential..
I still lay money that Commodore would have messed it up somehow tho.
