The PS3 wasn't great at first but got much better. I just wish they'd kept the PS2 backwards compatibility, but they ultimately felt it didn't add much to the experience for what it cost to manufacture. Valkyria Chronicles was the "killer app" that got me to get one. The PS3 had one of the strongest finishes of any console. Its last few years seemed to herald the start of a Japanese renaissance. I enjoyed the Wii U, however.
