The title should be "Don't trust Pachter or IGN when it comes to ANY gaming related news".

True! But this focuses on the Nintendo side of things.

Nah it's cool man lol, I was just joking. (Well not really, they shouldn't be trusted, but still...) :]

Bah, I clicked on this article just so I could post a comment like yours..

I'll just say Ign are shit and future rearranges itself to ensure patcher is wrong

Edit- Hey, yellowflash...Madara would rape you

Madara would rape me? What happened the last time Madara and I fought? Yeah, he ran like a little bitch. LOL

So this is some guy's underhanded attempt to crap on the Vita? I'd be interested if the title reflected the content of the video, but the creator has just grouped himself with Pachter and IGN as far as I'm concerned.

Theyellowflash301853d ago

Did you read the first thing the video says?

Baka-akaB1853d ago

Don't Trust Pachter or IGN period

knifefight1853d ago

Done and done.
You won't have to tell me twice.

Patcher sucks at his job, IGN sometimes are okay sometimes they are idiot nvm most of the time they are idiots lol

That really depends on how Pachter is used. If people hire him to do the opposite of what he says (which is typically right), then wouldn't that make him good at his job? Perhaps he's something of a comic or maybe they hire him to patch the first idea at meetings so no one will feel stupid.

Their literary skills is that of a college drop-out, and in addition to that, their rating skills is that of a child; is this title good, NO, they didn't pay us to give them a good rating.

You know Francis, respectfully, you are totally blind when it comes to Nintendo. Nobody is suggesting that Nintendo is about to go out of business, because we know that Nintendo is profitable.

The question is whether or not Nintendo has made a bade move with the WiiU by releasing it first, and by releasing a console that just simply isn't "next gen" in terms of technology. Theres no question that Nintendo will release some good games that will appease their fanbase, but the fact is that the WiiU is going to struggle, and I would predict sales of less than 40 million for this console when it is all said and done.

I think that Nintendo will refocus their business to maximize their profit. It may not happen for a couple of years, but I strongly believe that Nintendo will continue to be strong and successful in the handheld market, but I think that they will become a third party developer at some point. If Super Mario games were to be available on PS4, XBOX 720, STEAM, Android, iOS and 3DS, they would make way more money from their software sales than they currently do. Nintendo's popular franchises would match, if not surpass Call of Duty.

The WiiU is a huge tactical error on Nintendo's part, and I think the failure of this console will change the game for Nintendo. Lets remember that there are shareholders that need to see gains on their investments. I think you're so in love with Nintendo that they can do no wrong in your eyes. At some point, I'm going to say that I told you so.

You know BattleAxe, respectfully, you sound just like Michael Pachter.

Replace WiiU in the above post with any other Nintendo console name and you pretty much have exactly what any Nintendo detractor has ever said about any Nintendo product.
