Comodore europe went down in '92 cos the director couldn't be trusted with money. Commodore released the cd32 just before commodere europe went down i think. Anyhow CBM europe dragged down the whole of CBM in the end. The bastard that destroyed CBM europe obtained Escom and later commodore name + amiga. Ofcourse he once again used company money to entertain himself and friends in the redlight district of amsterdam. Over 8,000,000.00 US dollar. So Escom wich changed name to Commodore went down the drain as well. I have seen the warehouses were they stored their Amiga stuff (i worked for escom
) but they never did a thing with them. Till they went bankrupt they were just collecting dust. Commodere would be sold to tulip ( i never kept track of it so i don't know if that really did happen) Fact is that the a-hole that already destroyed 2 companies would get a high position in the tulip organisation. He got that position, but luckely he couldn't hold it as evidence of his misbehaviour stacked up. Hopefully he's a homeless drunk bum by now.
What happened to the brand Amiga is pretty much unclear. After Escom there have been several companies who owned it.
Commodore just as the tramiels made mistakes. I considder CDtv (amiga based CDI kind of machine), amiga 600 and CD32 as the biggest ones.
CDtv didn't get much support and was just an A500+cdrom. The A600 was a bad move as everybody was waiting for the A1200 and wasn't much better then the A500 (a bit of a STE compared to the ST although the STE had more improvements over the ST then the A600 over the A500). The cd32 although not bad was hardware wise inferior to the upcomming 3DO, Jaguar and later PSX, Saturn and N64. That and the fact that CBM had no heart for consoles must have led to failure even if they didn't went bankrupt.
The A1200 was like the Falcon a nice piece of hardware, but not offering enough new and better things compared to the older models. The PC hardware got cheaper, better (sound and gfx cards) and faster rapidly too. So i think they had no chance with the big public. If they could have made a fast and cheap 68040 based machine of it then it might have been possible that they were more successfull.
