Don't tell Yoshida, it's bullshit time again!
I must remind you that the PS3 was an inferior product as well not only due to the high price and late release, but the performance issues that did affect gamers. Add to that the fact that the error was using the wrong type of adhesive in heatsinks and it was dead. It was a production issue. In use it was superior to the PS3. Also, it didn't surpass the Xbox 360 until after the generation was over, so it's technically considered a loss.
Now off your bloody high horse and at least show some respect for the guys who didn't think twice before shelling figures out to fix the mistake someone in the city of Shenzhen had made!
Blah, blah, blah and poor excuses were all I got out of that post. But, hey, you can always try next time.
