Everything is relative
The competition of the Wii which launched a week later than the PS3 has destroyed the Sony box in the marketplace.
Licking wounds the Sony team claim they never wanted to beat Wii and its irrelevant.
Now the Xbox 360 has floored them with a price cut that makes the PS3 sticker price even more eye watering.
I guess 20 million units sold isnt bad considering everything that has gone wrong for Sony but it certainly isnt anything to crow about.
