|[Rant] AmigaAnywhere isn't AmigaDE ?||ANN.lu|

The AmigaAnywhere pack apparently can't run AmigaDE content. People who spent $30 or more on the "Entertainment Pack" can only run the four games included with that pack. They also can't run those games from a non PocketPC system.
Amiga Inc says that it intends to eventually write a Player application for PocketPC, and then PocketPC owners will be able to buy this additional software (the desktop equivalent costs $20) on top of the Entertainment Pack and any extra games. The Entertainment Pack itself remains a "sealed unit". There is as yet no ETA or price information for the PocketPC Player.
What do developers think of this? Were you expecting to generate sales based on AA Entertainment Pack purchases, or did Amiga warn you that PocketPC owners wouldn't be able to buy your games ?

It seems Amiga wants AmigaAnywhere to be "write once, run anywhere" for developers, but doesn't want "buy once, run anywhere" for end users.
