That video was great. Excellent job and good research. I have always found it odd that people say it wasn't a thing here in North America. Perhaps they were too young to remember or weren't born yet? Or perhaps they look at the sheer amount of Euro demos and assume that meant that there was no market in NA. I am not sure but having lived through the 8-bit and 16-bit eras at the time and not just as a kid, but as someone that paid his own money for the stuff it always bugged me that they thought that. Thanks for doing this video.
One thing that people bring up a lot too is those sales figures from Amiga Format in the UK. 700k total Amigas in North America? That has to be way off. Only 4.5 million total Amigas in the world? That sounds odd too. That means the C128 outsold the Amiga. I find that hard to believe. I remember reading a figure of 1.3 - 1.5 million estimated A500s in North America only. I suppose those could be wrong too. But that does not factor in the A1000, A2000, A3000, A600, A1200 and A4000.
Is it logical to think that all these companies started selling hardware and software in North America for a less than 1% market product? Why would they bother with such a small user base when the PC clone market was growing by leaps then? Why would there be so many magazines and disk pubs every month for such a small market? Doesn't add up.
