Yeah, IBM PCs were INSANELY expensive for a while, like I think the original was $3000 or something not even counting the price of the monitor? It's amazing they didn't price themselves out of the market when you could get Commodores for less than a third of that.

It's also funny looking at how long obsolete hardware stayed on the market. We tend to think of past years in terms of what just came out, but as a recent LGR video pointed out, they were still making brand new XT-class computers in 1989, and those cost $900, also without the monitor included. And of course the Commodore 64 continued to sell well into the '90s and even had new games developed for it.

it's not surprising some companies that tried to get on the market just flat out failed because they offered only the most basic software

if you spend so much on a computer, you want to be able to do more than a writing program and programming in basic

It still amazes me how they thought windows 8 would take off :-I
It still amazes me how Microsoft was a 100% sure Xbox would become the next home entertainment brand to the point they bet their whole console business on it and made apps called Xbox Video and Xbox Music that nobody ever used

I'd managed to forget about this but yeah, they tried to capture the video game market too on PC with their half-baked 'xbox' app that you could only get like 5 games on for PC. :-I

I demand microtransactions (for card skins), booster packs (for boosted XP gain) and an in-game currency that lets me skip the grind of solving Grandmaster decks


I also just realized that with the ranking system, XP and card skins already in the game these could all be very easily implemented. they already show you video ads between games that you can pay to get rid of. this universe is cursed

I have seen the xbox avatars get used once, and that was in the 'kefling' series of games where your avatar is your main character and you play as a giant helping tiny people make cities and stuff, kinda played like a mobile city builder game but without any microtransactions so it was actually way better than those games. :-I

Edit: Just found out they made a third game in the series for VR which... makes sense as a natural progression, but kinda came outta nowhere since the second game is pretty freakin old by now.

It is! They still have at least the second game in the series as one of the five games you can get for PC on the xbox app, so if that interests you give it a go!
