I agree the Sharp X68000 was a killer when you see some of those arcade identical games. Despite its technical achievement i really dont believe it would have succeeded as a game machine outside the asian countries. $3000 USD at the time was way beyond what ANY reasonable person would pay for a game machine$ games were great but not that great. Granted the X68K system was capable of more but at that time home computers had to be IBM compatible or you were dead. Lets face it, people were getting their fix from significantly cheaper NES, Sega, and even cheap IBM Compatibles with VGA graphics.

The Sharp X68000 was the top dog in it''s day of 68k based home computers and it better be since it was hella expensive. One could purchase a few Amiga 500s for the price of one entry level X68000.
