Floppy disks were cheaper so it was an obvious choice. "Choice" being the key word. At least the computer was capable of game-cartridges if manufacturers bothered. It's no different to what Sega/Nintendo/Old-Atari were doing so how is it cheating really? It evens up the storage/loading side of things. I think it's fair.

Why would that matter if the motivation behind it is only to prove a specific model was as (if not more) capable than it's counterparts (Arcade/Consoles) had publishers chosen a cartridge instead of floppy.

(A500) That's all these discussions are ever about, usually.
