It was mainly on Sega's leadership, but I would say the PlayStation. The Dreamcast couldn't even kill off the aging PlayStation and the PlayStation 2 killed the Dreamcast. The Dreamcast was discontinued only about a year after the PS2 launched in Japan, and about half a year or so after its launch in other major markets.

The Dreamcast had so much going for it, but bad blood between Sega and consumers and the sheer titan that was PlayStation killed the Dreamcast before the GameCube and Xbox even launched.
