The CD32 was a sucky system because all of its games consisted of Amiga ports. I'd rather play the originals on the Amiga 1200. It crashes less.
Yes thats true partly, i dont think commodore wanted it to be expanded into a A1200 even though the public wanted it, they did start to do one that sat underneath the CD32 but never got released due to Commodore US going belly up, i'm currently doing a cd32 list (and will restart my ngcd one!) that will give all details of exactly how many A500, A1200, CDTV ports it had with what cd32 extras were added and the CD32 exclusives - not too many of those, but even look at the jaguar that had ports of amiga games no one moaned at those even at Â£50 a game!That's so shortsighted it hurts. The CD32 _is_ an Amiga, so the games weren't ported (unless it was from other platforms)... The concept behind the CD32 was to be a low-cost alternative to an Amiga 1200 designed just for playing games, but you COULD expand the console to a full A1200 with an expansion module called the SX-1 (if I rememeber correctly).
