unfortunately the market showed it was not promising. it was on the market long enough to show it was a poor product no matter how much of an apologist you want to be. They spent marketing dollars to show it was it's own console. The truth of the matter was the market showed no desire for it, Nintendo took a risk but being smart business men realized they had to cut their losses and prepare for the next gen for the long term health of the company. The fact you liked the console means nothing in the business world. The product was a complete deviation from the Wii strategy and it failed. Not even the Wii name could save it.
