Here’s a video I stumbled upon on YouTube. It shows the factory where they made A1200’s back when Escom had taken over the Amiga. 🙂 The factory was located near Bordeaux in France. Interesting to see so many years after! Have a good weekend and hope you’ll enjoy the video.

Hi there! Thanks for letting me know. I was not aware of that. I’ll exchange the films. Thanks!
Cool, nice find.

Thanks. 🙂 I remember having hopes for Escom back then. When my Commodore Amiga 1200 died, I actually bought one of these Magic Packs. 🙂 So now I know here it came from! 😉
Yeah, I remember that heart-breaking period during the mid-90s when the Amiga was getting passed around by different companies following the demise of Commodore. Each time I hoped the new proprietor would be the Amiga’s saviour, but it seemed that no one who acquired the IP really knew what to do with it. I guess by that point the PC had become too dominant and far more affordable, while the Japanese consoles were starting to take control over the gaming market.
