From a business perspective, depending on how much PS3 cost Sony in the end, it could have been one of the worst.
From my personal point of view, each system I've had has brought me many hours of memorable entertainment.
If you didn't buy the Goerge Foreman Grill for $600, but instead a Slim for $120, then it felt like a great deal because it had all the games you'd expect.
For me there was no problem with it.
N64 alienated a lot of third parties. But as an N64 owner, while I missed a lot of the rpgs and fighting games that went to PS instead, I still had a lot of unforgettable experiences with it. How Mario 64 and OOT subverted my expectations (because few such games were on the market at the time) is something that very few games since have been able to replicate.
Dreamcast also had a lot of great games, even though it ended up making Sega exit the console business. I didn't own one personally, but played on my friend's Dreamcast frequently. Oh yeah, I even borrowed it one time to play Sonic Adventure. Good times.

So I don't know which one I'd consider the worst.
Virtual Boy maybe?
