Michael Pachter: Nintendo Will be In “A Distant Third”


Highly controversial Video Game Analyst Michael Pachter has said that Nintendo will be in a far third. Here are his exact words:

“The publishers are pretty excited to support the Xbox One and the PS4 – they really didn’t say anything about the Wii U. And we know EA has no games in development for Wii U. If Activision pulls support; if you see Ubisoft , you see Take-Two pull support, the Wii U is a Nintendo-only gaming device which is what they were back with the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1985. They’re not going to sell a lot of consoles if they don’t have games like FIFA and Battlefield and Call of Duty and Grand Theft Auto. Due to that, Pachter asks a simple rhetorical question: “Why would anybody buy a Wii U?”

Lemme give you my take on it. Michael Pachter is the same guy who said that the PS Vita was going to destroy the 3DS, yeah, that didn’t happen. I’d going to hate saying this though, he’s got   a point, here is the problem though. He isn’t on the right track! He is attacking Nintendo on the wrong things. He said the the Wii U is $50 dollars cheaper than the PS4. WHAT!?!?!? That’s the Deluxe Bundle man, it has a game, and a few peripherals. PS4 Basic V.S Wii U Basic.

Xbox One – $500                                                                                                                             Playstation 4 – $400                                                                                                                                       Wii U Deluxe Bundle – $350                                                                                                                        Wii U Basic Bundle – $300
