BTW it's interesting to note RJ Mical (co-inventor of the Lynx, Amiga and 3DO) is working on PS3 projects. He's also in the Uncharted 2 credits. I love it talents like him get enough resources from Sony to realize their aims and flourish their talents.
You say he was the co-inventor of the Lynx and 3DO, isn't that kinda speaking against his talents?
Technical talents. He's an engineer.
The Amiga was the technically most amazing computer ever released for its time. The Lynx and 3DO were very advanced consoles, but great technicals mainly enhance potentials. To realize optimal market potential you need good managers, resources and advertising in addition to technical talents.
