My initial concerns about the limited edition were how on earth they would get disks for this, let alone roll out a huge number without some poor soul spending weeks with xcopy. Sounded a bit like a political campain promise - good idea, but how could it be possible?
So it doesn't sound that far fetched that they had an idea of doing so, but couldn't due to technical limitations. I might be too mild on the guy, but after decades of being an Amiga follower, I'm not betting the house on anything - promises that doesn't fall through has always been a part of it. But granted, he haven't exactly a flawless reputation.
I'd love to get an amiga version of the game, but i do have a snes and putty squad - and I have to say i prefer the original game anyway.
