The Wii didn't target us. Seems to me that the "bottom line" intent for that design was to accomplish two goals: offer a counterpoint to the "couchpotato fat gamer kid" meme that was huge back then so parents could feel good about buying their kids a game console, and an attempt to crack the adult female market via all the exercise "games" (which they're still making today). Sure, they wanted to sell games to gamers as well, but it really seems to me that all the design decisions that make up the Wii revolve around a marketing strategy that simply didn't pan out that well.

Sorry. No pearls of wisdom in this oyster.
