I'm not a fan of video game analysts as they are usually wrong. However, in this case, it seems that Sebastian has it right. The first indication of this is the phone call I got from Babbages last night saying that I didn't make the cut, even though I was 6th in line for the preorder. They took twelve pre-orders...that was the conservative estimate for how many they'd receive. Now, they're getting five 60GB and two 20GB models. That's about half in my book. Also, there is a report that the second shipment of PS3s for Japan will come in at 30,000 instead of 100,000.
What's that sound I hear? Oh, Sony going bankrupt.
