My argument was that Nintendo is one of the most respected brand in gaming history and yet it has had a couple of consoles that have performed worst than the X1. So that´s why I dont see the X1 like such a big failure.
The Nintendo brand has remained strong thanks to their popular IP and handheld performance. Outside of Wii their home console market had been poor in the 21st century so doing better than GC & Wii U doesn't mean much.
When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.
