Let's remember that the PS2 had the weakest hardware of its generation...

And it ended up selling the most units. Food for thought.

Weaker than the Gamecube? I don't believe it. I'll have to look into this.

Actually the WiiU is the weakest console of this generation and it's not selling well either.
You have no argument.

Let's remember this thread has been made a billion times and doesn't really account for the numerous advantages Playstation 2 had that made it a runaway success before anybody ever cared about it being weaker.

Playstation had something no other weakest console does. It was a Playstation.

I'm saying hardware doesn't matter. Microsoft is failing to leverage their brand. They lost whatever it was that allowed the 360 to succeed for the first 4-5 years of its life, and made bad decisions with the XBone reveal, from which they never really recovered.

However, I see a lot of people talking about how hardware is the reason that the XBone isn't doing well. No Joe Schmoe on the street knows how many TFLOPS the XBone does in comparison to the PS4, nor do most consumers even know that most games on the PS3 and 360 didn't run at 1080p.
