High cost of the hardware did kill it. Compared to the low cost of pc hardware at the same time. Want to upgrade an amiga one add-on hardware board, you could buy a pc for the same price. The amiga users i knew back then all wanted cheap pc hardware also for their amiga, but was not possible.
Sad but true. Even at present day it is impossible to build a decent "old" Amiga System (A1200 with 68040 in a Tower with 32/64mb, to use WB 3.1 and WHDLOAD Games) without spend a lot. Even new Amiga platforms are too exensive, and many people (not me, I know the "new" Amiga aren't "classic") don't like them because you have to use UAE anyway to play old games.
