Amiga brand won't sell ANYTHING anymore...
On the other hand old-time Amiga hits can sell a lot...
About the 2nd point: I'm not talking about emulating... If you read correctly, I'm talking about two things:
.Beast (or whatever) based on original graphics and sounds
.NEW Beast using today technology: Radeon/voodoo graphics, maybe 3D ?, Alpha blending, 16bit soundtrack...
The goal is to:
.Give interest in Pegasos/MorphOS
.Give a reason for people to buy AND (unlike today) use Pegasos/MorphOS
.Take over the World ;) (nah: just kidding ;))
I understand quite well that your didn't ment emulating. I dind't meant that either (just reread my post). It's just that pushing the Pegasos into the retro corner is not too good IMO.
And if you say the Amiga brand won't sell anything, so the Beast will not either...
To conclude my statements: It is for sure that some nice games will have a positive effect to the Pegasos market. But some game would just be another some game...
Even one or two decent jump'n'runs will not bring many customers to the Peg. Really.
There is some more needed. Reread my previous posts. The HW must be available, MOS 1.5 (i.e. an enhanced MOS) must be available and some standard applications (office, net). Everything else is a nice idea but will have no real success.
If the above is done then it's surely nice to put a BeastNG into the Superbundle. But it will not be the major selling point.
Whenever you're sad just remember the world is 4.543 billion years old and you somehow managed to exist at the same time as David Bowie.
