There is nothing delusional: he do same with Commodore 64 and it was right thing to do as you can see by Commodore growth in profit.
That was simply his business strategy which he, btw, repeat publicly in every interview: "I believe that my customer is smart enough and that he will buy computer in any store for best price"!

Yes, Federated Trade stores suck almost 100$ from Atari Corporation and was one of main reason for Atari (premature?) dismiss.
