GT:Is Nintendo’s stake in the console market in jeopardy? Pachter gives us the rundown, no punches held. Plus, what’s the sitrep with Gearbox’s Aliens: Colonial Marines?
the more of these articles get approved, the more of a goomba this schmachter will sound. Especially once Nintendos REAL wiiU games get shown . . yesS! and also him saying . i THINK this and i THINK that, i GUESS this I GUESS that = unsure of what flies out of his mouth = faiLure . and plus, this man prochter THINKS the wiiU is making 5-10 dollars profit . . lets say the wiiU was making 1$ dollar profit, and the systems sells 100,000 units = how much intake?, off of just one dollar? . um hmm . . ah eh ohh . what a schmuck
Pachter is a pundit and his opinions are motivated by personal loyalty and financial obligation.
was he sort of defending Alien colonial marines? I know it's far from over for Nintendo to stop making consoles business. Pachter kept talking about Nintendo's formula is not working as well anymore. it's still working!
I don't agree because look what happened to Sega once they quit the hardware business. They went downhill and so did the quality of their first party games.The Dreamcast was an amazing system that showed Segas' ability to make great hardware. I hope someday they will return and make the Dreamcast 2
Sega is making more profit by being software only.. Its doubtful they will ever return to the hardware market again because of the loses it brings..
No doubt that is true but I miss the days when Sega had an big impact on the industry. My ultimate dream is for them to announce Dreamcast 2 with Sonic Adventure 3 as a launch title made by the original members of the Sonic Team from the 90s(mainly Yuji Naka,Naoto Ōshima,and Hirokazu Yasuhara)
You have to blame Sega for their own downfall. They were riding high but made so many bad decisions that you have to wonder if the person was even competent. The 32x launching months before the Saturn? The Saturn getting a surprise launch while 3rd party studios didn't even know. Sega of Japan limiting Sega of America with knowledge of the Saturn and it's tech. Mere months after the launch of the Saturn the announcement of the Dreamcast. And Ps2 coming with DVD playback. Sega murdered themselves and I haven't even listed all the reasons. There should seriously be a documentary on the colossal f*** up that Sega did.
HAHA I laugh hard reading these mistakes. But I think the arcade mentality of bringing new machines to the table was the influence they had, this is pretty much how arcade gaming was back then. New machine for this racing game and that fighting game, boom announce something else for the future shortly. Sega was treating there console almost completely as a world to it self not even nintendo can compare with them when it comes to anti third party.
Pachter puts his money where his mouth is, you gotta respect that. He gets it spot on most of the time too us much as you guys like to pretend otherwise.
LOL what world are you living in?
Holy crap, no. I can't remember the last time Pachter got any of his "predictions" right.
He does get a few predictions right. Just like we can get a few right. But most of his predictions are wrong. The interest is the reasoning and explanation he makes behind his predictions. Sometimes it sounds right, other times it sounds ridiculous.
If you're hoping they'll go third party you're going to be massively disappointed.
Nintendo's not even 3rd party, and yet i'm still disapointed with them. Nintendo hasn't been relevant to core gamers in about a decade. Ever since Iwata was made prez during the gamecube era. All the man knows how to do is stick mario in every new game, shun 3rd parties, and use gimmicks (like the dumb e-card reader gimmick for gamecube, the wii-mote (which was very inacurate), the wii weight scale, a billion rehashes of old franchises, the Wii U controller (only single-touch screen instead of multitouch), using outdated tech in new consoles (thus alienating 3rd party devs who want to port to other higher spec consoles), a weak online infrastructure, and so much more. The only reason their staying afloat is because of nintendo's excellently-run portable division (which runs mostly independantly from iwata). Now, Iwata wants to combine that division to the console division in hopes that they can clean up his mess. In actuality, it should be the guys running the portable divisions who should be running the console division. The ds and 3ds ALWAYS got 3rd party love, had decent tech, and innovative features. Iwata is why nintendo utterly sucks now. Hell, the fool even lost the one hope nintendo had--the casuals. Nobody knows who the hell the Wii U's demographic is supposed to be. That dude's gotta go if nintendo is gonna survive the next gen (and the one after that). Iwata got lucky with the Wii gimmick and now he thinks he's special. But it was a lucky gimmick that worked on casuals. Now kinect stole the casuals, leaving nintendo with no clear demographic.
His long, rambling answer to this question is basically "no, but I think they should cause I think then they'd make more money". ..Sega is awesome though, why would anyone not want to be more like Sega?
Beats me... But, like I have mentioned before Patcher has more insight of what goes on in the gaming business than anyone in here, regardless of what they say. ;) As for Nintendo well, they need some major improvements because if things keep going the way they are now, then they might just end up down that road.
so you know everyone in here? ah eh oh LOL_WUT!? ha haa
i loved playing NSMB U and being able to play it on the gamepad. I know that if nintendo keeps a good stream of AAA titles coming the wii u will be a success. Of course sales have dwindled there has only been one game worth having in my opinion in 3 months. I will not buy enhanced ports of games I have on other consoles
>Nintendo the next Sega Not unless the massive amount of money they have disappears and they start making bad business decisions repeatedly. Why do people honestly listen to Pachter anyways? he's always kinda come off as a bit too cocksure in himself and his 'predictions'.
Yep, WiiU bullying for profit is "Immature" Exactly, my point. Trying to destroy a consoles future so that you can make money once it goes 3rd Party is "Immature". After (Edit:4) 3 months and declaring WiiU dead- given Nintendo's track record- is "Immature". That was the point of my comment. And if it is not "Immature" it for dang sure is "Premature" ;) PS I apologize for saying anyone's Mom is like SEGA. If someone had said that about my Mom... I'd be like "What?" (DejaVu) ;)
