That means that releasing the A500+ alongside the A3000 would have meant much worse compatibility issues at that time, because the percentage of games not working out of what was already released would have been much worse. Commodore did send KS2 compatibility guidelines to developers in mid-1990 (and some basic idea of what not to do with what was then goign to be Kickstart 1.4 as early as mid-1989 - mentioned in an issue of Amiga Computing from that time), can they be blamed for developers ignoring them?
Well maybe the sceners can tell us what it was like when the A500+ was released and if sysops were nuking a lot of releases as they couldn't run on all Amigas?

If there is already a computer in the household, why do you need one of your own? Let daddy pay instead; you only need to convince him to buy a sound card or a CD-ROM so he can use Encarta or play his Naxos CDs, and then you can play Doom while he is not using it.
Most dads were happy to get PC maintainance services and advice from their kids for free. Son said he would add a soundcard to the PC? Well, that was probably a bit of compensation for those free services and something that could be a father-and-son shared interest.
