You may recall when the internet collectively freaked out last week in reaction to an 82% drop in UK PS3 sales reported by Chart Track. Despite the fact that the stat apparently "didn't mean anything" the agency is now trying to track down exactly who let the commoners in on the secret.

Part of Chart Track's deal with those who subscribe to its information is that they won't publish the data for public consumption, a sacred trust that someone looks to have broken. Now, Next Generation is reporting that the group may have pinpointed the source of the leak; in fact, they've contacted the party they think is responsible. If that doesn't work out, we think the next step is obvious: Jack Bauer, a wooden chair and enough Sodium Pentothal to make Peter Moore admit those tattoos are fake.
