      Qualcomm (who actually financed the Zeebo) lost about $200M, but they're so huge that they barely felt it, and didn't care much about it anyway. The Xbox One was much worse, considering that the Xbox brand was extremely valuable and it got tainted after that disastrous TV TV TV reveal.

        >$200M
        Oops, typo. The source actually says $100M.

    It started with the kinect and the dashboard update. This was the point of no return.

    E.T. on Atari. Basically stalled industry growth for like a year. Mattrick's pretty high up there but Xbox has managed to shamble along like a zombie in the decade since. E.T. knocked Atari flat on its ass and it's never quite been the same for them since.

      Xbone had much, much bigger problems than the name. That shit made George Orwell roll in his fricking grave.

    Stadia and even Wii U were worse. I'd say the biggest disaster in gaming history that isn't ET is probably the Virtual Boy. Shit was gone in less than a year and stores were basically giving away the console.

      Stadia's a good pick, no one's gonna put their full trust in cloud based gaming anytime soon after that. WiiU/Virtual Boy sold worse but neither fricked Nintendo's reputation beyond repair. The lack of success is a good point but the ripple effect isn't really there for either, they were just failed experiments.

          Yokoi's death was perfectly natural and you can't prove anything. Real talk though, he died on my birthday. Shit sucks, man.

        >neither fricked Nintendo's reputation beyond repair.
        I think Virtual Boy is important because it did show that Nintendo could be fricked with, and could absolutely fail if given the circumstances. It was the first huge commercial failure made by the company people associated video games with, and showed that anybody could realistically take the video game market.

          It's ironic that Nintendo published this ad dissing the 32X as a stopgap system, doomed to a short lifespan... and then they also released the Virtual Boy as a stopgap system when development of the Nintendo 64 was taking too long.

      The frick in that image pushed for the Kinect on the 360, revealed Xbone to be a dystopian nightmare, and when asked about Xbone's mandatory internet connectivity he dropped the shit that was heard around the world and is remembered to this day:

      To say he killed Xbox as a brand stone cold dead, with no chance of recovery in the early 10s is not an overstatement.
