I could be wrong, but I remember an analyst, or maybe even Sony said they will never recoup what they lost this generation on the PS3.

I wouldnt say they "stole" a huge % of market share as much as they filled the void in the market. Sony only had that market share because there was pretty much no one else to give it too.
Coming off the NES, and SNES, the N64 was competition.
