|[Rant] AmigaAnywhere isn't AmigaDE ?||ANN.lu|
|Posted on 01-Jun-2002 16:36 GMT by NoBeForMe||16 comments|
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 ?

|In reply to Comment 1 (Marcus Sundman):|
Is this surprising?
My impression from the first was that this is a pack of four games to
run on PocketPC devices. Nobody said it was a universal player for
other games or devices.
It seems to be designed as a trial run more than anything.
