The CD 1200 was originally planned to allow the A1200 to use CD-ROMs as well as having CD32 compatibility. Sadly enough the CD 1200 was never released because of Commodore’s bankruptcy. Commodore shut down Amiga and filed for voluntary liquidation in April 1994. Escom purchased Commodore International in 1995, but Escom overextended itself and declared bankruptcy on July 15, 1996. The CD 1200 was expected to go on sale in Germany during May 1994 for DM 500. This would be followed in September 1994 by its release in the UK.
