@DrF

Today's X-Box 360 & PS3 are just CDTV & CD32 glorified ideas, one of the developers from the CDTV team ever works on the X-Box 360.

Commodore died in the same way sinclair, bbc micro, amstrad, oric, tandy, nec all went....... They didnt produce computers that could keep up with changes in technology. They all made computers and the hardware was built in. In a few months the hardware was out of date and commodore couldnt just make a new computer every few months. PC have new hardware virtually every month and remember......Microsoft JUST make the OS!!!

As I said not much of a market when the CDTV was new though was it, nobody wanted a all-in-1 everthing in your living room thingy, I think the image of computer systems has changed from geeky, lonely people in a bedroom with no life into something with a more accepted image.

I think the CD32 was the right product at the right time with quite possibly the worst marketing, that said if I remember the Christmas 93 season the CD32 did VERY well.

Well I wanted 1....

Yeah but the cd32 was just a basic A1200 in a box, which didnt do anything the megadrive (or megaCD) couldnt do and that was a 1990s console.........

Kill all UFO fanatics. Amiga fans are annoying at times, like any fanboy, but UFO fans need to be killed.

Are you sure your not quoting "today's" technology turn around time?. The hardware wasn't out of date within a few months back then, it cost more to produce chips and radical chipset designs were far out of reach for the average persons budget so they needed to hold back, but "today" we are seeing a turn around time of a few months.

You "are" right, but not in the terms i have mentioned.
