Can't wait to see what Leo has to say about this...
I won't comment, because you pretty much said it all in your OP. Welcome
You know people have been being warned for similiar comments.
Anyways anyone who thinks like this is narrowminded. Sure companies want marketshare... but why? Because more people means more money. But trust me business really don't care if someone's install base is higher. They don't say "whoops nintendo is beating us... let's just drop out because its useless" But they will have meetings and say "How can we increase our earnings"
And you can't judge success by previous events. You are just setting yourself up for failure.
It's like me judging Imagine by John Lennon to Love Me Do by the beetles.
