The ones who care really are us forum goers and we would complain with any marketing because we would complain of the specs.
For these consoles corps, there's no way to please us all as it is, let alone please us and the larger casual audience. They need to please us just enough to create a strong base, while doing whatever's necessary to bring in the big numbers through casuals after that. The bigger the casual audience becomes, the more it tends to benefit the hardcore as the gen goes on. Most of the time anyway. On rarer occasions it can lead to the Wii, Wii U, and XB1, which were too casual overall. It's a fine line to straddle.
