Surely a failure (and I love my ps3) as they spent so much money developing it and lost a lot of money on each sale for quite a few years. However probably not as big a failure as the 360 which had they huge write off of debt due to RROD. The only true home console winner of that generation was the wii at least commercially but for me both ps3 and 360 provided amazing gaming experiences and so both are huge winners for me personally. The wii on the other hand was hugely disappointing with only a handful of Nintendo games making it worthwhile.
