Analyst: The PS3 is in race against time photo



It sounds like a cheesy Wells novel, but this is exactly what a Kobe-beef-eating analyst said about the wobbly future of the PlayStation 3. I suppose money people are finding it hard to ignore reports the 82% decline in demand for the console in the UK post-launch. I'm personally more worried about Squaresoft's alleged wobbly commitment to them, but I guess that's more of a symptom of the greater problem. Here's what Captain Obvious said about Kutaragi's contraption:

It's a race against time," said Hiroshi Kamide, an analyst at KBC Securities who covers the $30 billion video game industry. "They must increase their users or it won't be commercially worthwhile for software makers to support it."

Think Sony's people are shaking in their pants? Nah. After that incredible GDC keynote, I'm sure they're all on a cruise ship drinking Alize from the chest cavities of blondes, midgets, and blonde midgets. This sounds all but too familiar to some:

Back in 2000, Japanese developers complained the PS2 was complex and too difficult to develop for. There weren't good titles available for the PS2 in Japan," Macquarie analyst David Gibson said. "In fact, Japan sales in the first year disappointed people. This all sounds familiar," he said.

Destructoid analyst Niero thinks you can't buy a better Folding@Home console anywhere right now; I'm not sure what all the fuss is about. STFUAJFAH! Other mumblings included that Gran Turismo's HD release would save the console, as would giant meteors hitting Redmond. The full release is on Reuters.

All I gotta say is LittleBigPlanet. Believe it.
