Seems gaming research analyst Michael Pachter doesn’t appear to be gaining any Nintendo fans as friends these days as he once again insults them.
Watch the episode http://n4g.com/news/1058132... He is clearly joking and not being serious.
Pachter is one of the best guys in the industry, unfortunately anything he says is spun into a negative light and taken out of context.
I agree he gets a bad rap cause what he said us either taken out of context or spun around. I find him funny and informative when he does pach attack.
I agree with Pachter. Fanboys are bad in general but Nintendo fanboys are the worst. They lack intelligence and are narrow minded. They have no problems buying the same rehashed franchises generation after generation and they enjoy not having new IPs. They think that having their first HD system 7 years after we all learned what HD means is innovative. They think that lack of voice acting in Zelda is "cool and mysterious". Nintendo fans.... I salute you and your stupidity. We need you guys otherwise we simply wouldn't know how smart we really are. And before anyone states the obvious: Yes.... I am a Sony fanboy.
People here are sooo gonna bubble you down for trolling lol. fanboys in general suck major a$$ that's y i don't deal with them much comment wise.
Yes, well, at the very least, i still have money in my pocket, you all-knowing-self-riteous... Bubs down for immaturity
I'm sure you see the irony in your own statement?
"They have no problems buying the same rehashed franchises generation after generation and they enjoy not having new IPs." You mean like 6 God of Wars, 15 SOCOMS, 25 GTs, 3 Uncharted's (this gen) Ratchet and Clank 45, Singstar 942? Every game Sony now has accept for maybe Last of Us has a number behind it. Sony is just doing what everyone else is doing.
@ puddle your acting like a fanboy yourself does that mean your at the bottom of the gene pool? lets face it all M$, Sony, Ninty fanboys are complete idiots imo. i know amp personally and he's far from a Sony fanboy lol. he like me own all consoles and he just does stuff like this for sh*ts and giggles just to see the reaction of people here lol. Fanboys is what ruined this generation imo, people with nothing better to do with their time. look how some people took pac's comment so seriously you'd think he punch them in the face lol. people need to relax.
Prime example of the bias on this site. Mine is gone for trolling yet his is still there for all to see. Yet people will argue this site isnt ran by Sony fanboys. If it isnt why is it you can openly troll Nintendo and its fans with personal attacks but say something negative about Sony and they go out their way to make sure its never seen by anyone.
Nintendo fanboys are stupid, and yet you are the one agreeing with a man that's wrong all of the time. I suppose you believe that 2 + 2 = 7, right?
Sony/Nintendo > Microsoft.
I don't think he is. In the past he's made his thoughts clear on Nintendo and it's fans.
I can't stand this guy and i've stopped watching him long time ago.
You could replace "Nintendo" in Patcher's statement with "MS" or "Sony" fanboys too. The most committed fanboys (and girls) are absurdly detached from reality and develop crazed associations and relationships with a brand. He does need a proper handler though, the man rarely checks himself before he speaks.
I have never seen or heard of someone that blindly buys anything MS or Sony, but I've seen a ton of people who would buy anything Nintendo.
How have you never seen someone say they're buying it because it's Sony. On N4G of all places.
you must be new here...
Patcher Patcher Patcher ...
Well that was really rude. How can you bash an entire fan base for supporting Nintendo because you don't think they are good enough for you?
Patcher is stupid. If your a fan of Nintendo of course your gonna buy their products just like if your a fan of Sony you will buy anything that says PlayStation/Sony same logic applies to Microsoft and apple.
If you're... just saying. You're right though, fans are going to buy their favorite brand no matter what.
This was really taken out of context, he was referring to how Nintendo has revealed little info on the WII U and expecting it to sell 4 million then he said this like he was talking directly at nintendo. Takin WAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYY out of context.
so if im wrong can someone tell me why, cuz i thought i was right.
Such a comment is a waste of bubbles. People are gonna disagree. They have that right, you know. And I don't know if you've noticed, but you have unlimited agree/disagrees, but VERY limited bubbles. People tend to use their bubbles more wisely because they have so few of them. As such, no one who disagrees with you is in any way obligated to tell you WHY. If what you say is true, then Pacther was, indeed, taken out of context. Then again, with the reputation he has, someone misunderstanding him isn't all that unsurprising, as he's not very well liked within the gaming community, in my estimation. In any case, complaining about how many disagrees you get- whether justified or not- is a waste of time; don't expect your second comment to get any more agrees or less disagrees than your first.
This guy is a clown, who the heck listen to what this guy has to say anyways?
Considering he still holds the position he does where he does, I would say a whole hell of a lot of people care to listen to what he has to say. Besides, he is funny and he was wearing shorts and a collar shirt! That makes him automatically cool.
I thought gaming was supposed to be competitive? He is an analyst people not the President. It's amazing what little freedom we have these days. It used to be that another's persons freedom and rights ended when they infringed on another persons rights or freedom. You can't say anything anymore.
How is challenging his statement infringing on his rights? According to your statement, people also have the right to verbally respond however they see fit. Freedom of speech applies to everyone here as well. Nobody is questioning his right to make statements! He's wrong all the damn time, and still has his job. Pachter is hardly the victim here. When your claim to fame is making "bold" statements/predictions, then you should prepare for "bold" responses.
Trying to stay relevant at its best!
Amphion!!!! bubble up you made me laugh so hard lol
Of course he did... That kind f a joke would appeal to a fanboy troll like you...
Somebody should patch some common sense to his brain. Haha, see what I did there...
It's paCHter. Not Patcher.
He is just trying to keep himself in the news... Nothing he says is funny at all or relevant! The best Bonus Rounds are when he's not on it and they have real guest that talk about the gaming industry and actually play games.
I don't like the guy but I don't hate him either and ill say it again some of you guys take what he says way too seriously. Also he must have really hit a nerve because some of you Nintendo guys are really getting worked up calling him all sorts of names, which just proves Amphions point. ;)
I agree that Pachter is indeed an idiot, but I must say, I enjoy his Pach Attacks. I'll give him that.
it wouldnt surprise me if patcher is being use by sony and microsoft like one of their fanboys...cause wiiu is a beast of a system and nintendo has all the right third parties on board....nintendo is doing things right....the sales are going to be crazy for this system
"So, you're a fan of beastiality I presume?", Wow, what an idiot, you really made my day :)
It's funny because the same people that are defending Pachter, are the same people who are constantly whining about the Sony financial articles. When Sony gets the bad press (bad press that can be proven), it's unfair. When Nintendo gets bad press (some loud mouth "analyst" that's always wrong), then "he's just doing his job". You guys should take your comedy act on the road. When you go on tour, it's okay to sell your tickets at a loss. You'll be "fine", just like Sony.
Great comment!! Bubbles for you,sir... "When you go on tour, it's okay to sell your tickets at a loss. You'll be "fine", just like Sony." LMFAO!
How is buying a box with a legitimate logo any different from buying a poster? Would Microsoft or Sony fanboys be stupid for buying a poster which relates to either of the corresponding companies? Is it stupid to buy posters? What if it was signed? Would you not pay more for a signed poster than a regular poster? Isn't a signature just a name?
Hey pachter....analyze my middle finger
Here comes Captain Yabhero lol slobbing my knob lol hahahahahaha coming to defend Nintendo universe. Of course you would be monitoring the forum to see my posts and make your little blind and faithfull (to mediocrity lol)defense of the Mario universe lol
Classy... I wasn't following you're posts just happened to notice your trolling sticking out like a sore thumb...
