Flop Or Not

With Nintendo's superiority in this market you may find it strange that they have 3 products making the list. Granted, there are not that many handhelds in existence, so it's understandable. I'd hardly call the GBA 1.0 a "flop", however, although I can see where they are coming from (the SP was so superior in my eyes that it does look like an archaic piece of equipment in comparison) but I'm sure Nintendo sales figures wouldn't agree. I do think the Micro is a bit of a luxury item, and with the release of the DS (especially the shuper shexy Lite version) it has and will struggle.
I don't think the PSP deserves to be on the list (or at least that near the top spot), but again, it depends what you call a flop. It's hard to comment to much as I haven't even seen most of these products in action in the flesh (including the PSP - video footage only), so I'm basing what I consider a "flop" on how well they have done in the market, not on the hardware capabilities or support.
Take a look, and tell us what you think about the choices? (Oh, and if anybody has a Virtual Boy that they don't want, let me know - I want one, flop or not! )
