Yeah in a way, but only at first. The fact they didn't give up on their project, it's not a failure. A failure is when you abandon the ship, then watch your ship sink into the deep ocean from afar in a lifeboat. There's nothing wrong in filling up the holes with wood at first then reinforce it later with metal after the storm. That's what sony did and that's the reason why PS3 is doing so well right now.Commitment.
