Hardcore gamers drive the market, casual users are fickle and often just along for the ride. The Wii is probably the greatest example of that.

Remember when the Wii came out and everyone was wondering why Nintendo was selling it at a profit while Sony and Microsoft were selling their consoles at a loss? At the end of the day the Wii sold more consoles than either of the others and Nintendo made money on every one and made money on whatever games were sold for those consoles. Call it what you want but that seems like a net win for Nintendo. Plus they have somehow convinced their idiot fanboys that digital purchases should be tied the the console they were purchased on thereby making them buy the same games over and over again. And dumb as it may sound, it does happen.
Yeah, but Nintendo failed to capitalize on it, and has seen their sales plunge. MS and Sony have seen much more consistent growth.
