The Commodore Amiga CD32 is a 32-bit game console released in September of 1993 in Europe. It was also released in Canada, Australia, and Brazil. Initially, the system sold well in Europe, and managed to gain a 50% share of the UK’s CD-ROM-based market. Later, 30,000 CD32 units, that were produced to be sold in the US, were seized in the Philippines due to a lawsuit. This was devastating news for Commodore’s fragile cash flows. The console was discontinued in April, 1994.
