The original A500 proved to be Commodore’s best-selling Amiga model, enjoying particular success in Europe. Although popular with hobbyists, arguably its most widespread use was as a gaming machine, where its advanced graphics and sound were of significant benefit. In October 1989, the A500 was bundled with the Batman Pack, which was sold in the United Kingdom
