People didn't like the MSX because it arrived just as the UK computer
industry was crashing badly - 85/86, and they also didn't like it because
it didn't offer anything new. I'd love to add that it was because it was
another attempt by BG III to take over the world but hey ho, his glory
would come later.
The longevity and price of the MSX can be seen by looking for the
following keyword: HX10
Of course, some MSX machines do sell well, but they're all MSX2 which
didn't really break out of Japan.
