Thats not bad considering it was released in 24 physical stores and on their website.

Wheres the Microsoft that threw themselves in the Gaming market, loosing billions initially, knowing what they really needed to do was win the customers hearts and minds, and the money would follow. This cold water shit is the reason companies can't "break into" emerging markets. Apple and samsung took bets, and every year they refresh and improve their designs.
