Was just clearing things up since your post suggested that it wasn't. I feel Nintendo's success is contingent on their ability to innovate. Nintendo knows they can't keep up with Sony and Microsoft in an arms race; they need to stand out if they want to maintain any share of the market. Do you not think the Wii U was innovative albeit lacking in storage? That being said, personally, I think the main attractive aspect of Nintendo is the quality of the games offered on their consoles not the console itself. I know several people who purchased the Wii U just to play Smash and Splatoon.

Well, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi thought people were happiest in a state of what he called "flow". He defined flow as a "state of concentration or complete absorption with the activity at hand and the situation." In his book "Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience" he actually goes into depth about flow and how it explains the work paradox. Work provides a platform for people to dedicate their focus and achieve flow. At home, flow states are rarely achieved because leisure is often comprised of activities that don't require much attention or focus. This would explain why people complain about work all the time but have poorer moods and are more anxious during leisure time. Personally, I feel that the response to the work paradox shouldn't be believing that work is absolutely necessary in order to be content. I think it just means we should pay much more attention to how we spend our leisure time.
