A new quote by Philips Media HQ: "Another curious thing here in America. There were actually 2 different sales organizations as the Phiilps guys in the US were completely uncapble of selling software, so they sold the players and ultimately a new group controlled out of LA sold the software. But neither group was qualified to the do the job. You can not imagine how frustrating it was to produce great titles only to not see them promoted and marketing properly. Indeed, in Europe I found a great haven for CD-i development as the US developer community reacted to the poor marketing of CDi and basically could even be bribed after a while to do titles. That was fine with my as we took our development budget to England, Belgium, Holland and France and got some great product.Indeed, in Europe I found a sales organization so thirsty for more game titles that was almost intoxicating."
