If you look at market share before the 360 came out, then the PS3 can be considered a huge failure. They lost a huge chunk of the pie and Xbox gained a far larger market share.I mean ps3 sold more than xbox 360, I would not consider that a failure. Maybe to Sony’s standards.
Of course people will look at ps3 vs 360 sales. But considering the numbers that came before, more or less selling the same as 360, or a little more, was poor indeed.
