Bets Being Taken By UK Bookmakers On Next Console To Suffer From "Global Glitch"

UK bookies Paddy Power doesn't have much faith in the state of console gaming. After the PS3's spectacular shitstorm of a failure this week, they're putting odds of 11/8 on it happening again. The Xbox 360 meanwhile has 7/4 odds.

Sweet, innocent little Wii, which never hurts anyone with downtime—just a few broken plasmas when it first came onto the scene—has odds of just 2/1. They're taking bets now, with the next console to suffer a "global glitch" that gets reported on the UK Sky News paying out bigtime for those in the know. [Paddy Power via MCV]
