Mini-Disc (1991)--custom disc format, and used ATRAC audio compression, which is proprietary.


 


 

Absolutely incorrect. Extremely, and I mean EXTREMELY successful in Japan.

 

By that logic, the Xbox 360 failed because it has 2/3 of it's market share in one region. 



"Naturally the common people don't want war: Neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, IT IS THE LEADERS of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is TELL THEM THEY ARE BEING ATTACKED, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. IT WORKS THE SAME IN ANY COUNTRY."  --Hermann Goering, leading Nazi party member, at the Nuremberg War Crime Trials

You forgot their CD format.  What a failure.

it's not "absolutely incorrect" seeing that it did fail in other countries, though I know it did very well in Japan (i know many people that have them).  It's been dying because of i-pod and mp3 players though.

I'm genuinely surprised Betamax is absent from this list. It is easily Sony's biggest flop format. Then again... UMD fell hard and fast.

Ok, ok... although the topic within here is valid enough, the title is flamebait - and too many of the posts are as well.

If it was up to me, I'd give warnings to GranTurismo, AllAll & gebx.

@GranTurismo - at 38 posts, you don't get many chances. That was some very blatant trolling. Please stop.
