History[edit | edit source]

The Amiga CD32 logotype.

The Amiga CD32 was preceded by the unsuccessful Commodore CDTV.

The Amiga CD32 was launched in 1993.[1] The CD32 sold decently at launch.[2] The CD32 was met with cautious optimism and skepticism of a future for the system by some reviewers at launch.[3][4]

The system was unable to be launched in the USA due to a legal issue,[5] which further reduced the ability of the CD32 to gain a significant marketshare.

The production of the Amiga CD32 was cut short in April 1994 when Commodore went bankrupt.[1]

Technology[edit | edit source]
