Anyone remember why the 'old' Cartridge design for Console games was finally ditched... I do, lol. It wasn't just because a newer medium had come out and finally became feasible to switch over to (i.e. cd), it was that, and the cartridges were expensive to make, 'and' mainly (imo) because the overseas market had made a living by copying and distributing black market cartridges in colossal numbers. I'm not sure if that'll revive the PC Market at all though seeing as how Piracy isn't slowing down any time soon.
Pegasus was huge in Europe, cheap NES knock off.

Windows 8 the next big failure, right after Windows ME
