#1357607 What if Atari and Commodore merged?

Posted by kevin242 on Thu Aug 23, 2007 11:16 PM

I don't think an Atari/Commodore could of hoped to compete with PC's or consoles but they could of created their own niche. The ST's already were used in the music world and Amiga was popular in the desktop video scene before non-linear video. In the end Commodore floundered around with the too little too late AGA Amiga's and Atari put all it's eggs in the Jaguar basket, but neither company really had the resources to release a competitive product in either the computer market or video game market but if both platforms were merged and a super ST/AMIGA hybrid was made perhaps there would still be something left today.
