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.

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!
