Does know any good sources for my "Failed gaming systems" speech?

I have to do a speech for my speech class that has:

At least 1 book

At least 3 articles

No more than 2 websites

as my sources

Not a whole lot of books get written on failed systems. You might do well to get books on successful systems (Zap, Phoenix, How to Not be Mike Kennedy in Three Easy Lessons, etc...) and use them for contrasts to your points

I don't recall how well it went into it for a book, but David Sheff's Nintendo book that came out around 2000-01 when the Gamecube hit covered the full life of Nintendo. That should if I recall cover their colossal singular screw up until the WiiU trumped it, the Virtual Boy. I think there was a chapter on it or part of one. You could go up against that, plenty enough articles as well in other sources, and websites you could curry more informmation out of Planet VB the big source on Virtual boy anything as they'd even have probably copies of articles if not scans of the originals. People like to sponge of Nintendo success in the last decade so while Sheff was doing a nice service then, people love to just spit out the same crap and get paid for it, so more books on Nintendo history wouldn't be hard to get what you need for that console.
