    The thing was crap- no good games, and the cheaper version forced you to endure adverts all the time. I wasn't surprised when I find out it flopped.

    And If I remeber correctly one of the company heads was a crook and was caught drunk driving.

    It could have been a big hit if they only had great games

    It needed better games yes, but also Brand Name reconition killed it as well. But got to hand it to them, takes guts to try to run against Nintendo and Sony. Thats why the Xbox was successful, it already had enough Brand Name reconition and people trust spending money on the console because of it.
