The Amiga was stuck in the past. People were unwilling to upgrade, and games companies were unwilling to release anything which actually required a decent machine.
The Playstation was a major factor for the demise of Amiga, Megadrive and SNES. Here was finally a machine that could do it all.

Its why Psygnosis pretty much rush released all the last of their Amiga games in 1994 because it was full steam ahead for Playstation.

Ironic really that when you look back over some Playstation titles and some Amiga titles, the Amiga ones generally have aged better, with no reliance on blocky bitmapped vectors!
