I challenge that RIM was ever a great company. I worked for a company that worked with them in the late 90s, they stunk. They got their position in the smartphone market mostly by not having a lot of competition.

I’ve never forgiven EA Sports for abandoning the PC market. As I was winding down from being a gamer Madden and NHL were the games that kept me playing, then they left the PC. I understand that market had gotten small, but it still bugs me.

Sony isn’t a surprise, I always thought HDDVD was going to beat BluRay just because Sony has such a long history of screwing up clear market advantages. So listing them as losing in spite of winning is pretty much par for their course.

We always knew eventually the so-so tech behind the Wii was going to cost it market.

The security features keep me coming back to Black Berry. I’m on my third one.

I don’t buy that. What’s costing the Wii market is complete and utter saturation, plus building a quality console that doesn’t fail reliably, forcing you to buy replacements every so often to keep the investment in a game library and accessories usable.

We’ll see how small the PC gaming market is when Diablo 3 comes out next week. EA didn’t dance with the “ones the brung ya” and now reap their just rewards, anyway all their games now have consolitis.
