GT:Pachter & Guests Define The Console War. Pachter also explains his controversial SXSW statement. Plus, a special guest stops by
Im sorry but Pachter is annoying. He's nothing but a fanboy with a voice in the gaming industry.
Thats your opinion and your entitled to have it. Not everyone will rub everyone the right way. As for me, I don't have a problem with him. I'd actually go as far to say that I like hearing about his thoughts on the industry, whether or not I disagree with him. What I do find curious is why people who dislike him devote so much attention to him.
Well I wouldn't go as far as saying I devote so much attention to him. He just clearly a fanboy. I listen to everything this dude says on the show,and its crazy at times. This dude actually said on the last Bonus Round He can not find one thing wrong that MS did this generation...LMAO. ARE YOU SERIOUS? But had a list of Sony mistakes.
"Well I wouldn't go as far as saying I devote so much attention to him." I wasn't referring to you specifically.
@logic no one devotes attention to him,these articles always appear of him say asinine things.
Pachter is poison to the gaming industry and should be fired. He doesn't give two shits about the games or gamers, all he cares about is that fat cheque being lodged into his account every week.
I didn't realize that "caring about games or gamers" was part of his job description. You seem to be misinformed. Pachter doesn't get paid to "care" about games/gamers, he gets paid to analyze the fluctuations of the industry.
Well I think his FluxCapacitors are way off on the industry. lol
lol and he still gets his six figures a year.
I think this episode is very accurate in regards to the WiiU.
Wii-U is in bad shape unless Nintendo can move out of the stone age features and support wise
Nintendo better do something for the WiiU and FAST! While I do not think they are doomed, they ARE in serious trouble. They have just released a little better than last gen console with almost no third party support just as the industry is shifting gears to the NEXT gen. The WiiU will not be able to run any of the stuff for the 720 or 4, it does not have a hard drive, and it does not have nearly enough RAM. They need to do something, and quickly.
^^This statement we know just isn't true and its not about trying to defend the WiiU. But delusion is very strong with many on this site, believing that just because Sony and Microsoft build it, everyone will stop what they are doing and come over! Now I'm not saying that the new consoles won't get the new multiplats coming out. But many here would be foolish to think that the PS3,360&WiiU can't run these games because of their specs. Mark Rein already stated that even the 360 could run an UE4 game if a developer chooses to port it. Most likely these companies will do just that for the next few years, because a 150+ install base is way to hard to pass up for some new consoles with decent specs...
Nintendo fan doesn't care about 3rd party games. Nintendo fan only buy Nintendo games.
And crying over spilled milk won't change Wii U's predicament either. Wii U owners need to buy the 3rd party titles that deserve sales, and Nintendo needs to supply them (by courting 3rd party publishers).
I agree with you and those 3rd party efforts should be applauded(especially Ubisoft,because they are doing a bang up job). Nintendo does need to show by E3 that they plan on getting major about this console and that they are serious in getting new 3rd party support. EA is a very big company and are important in the long run. But I'm more interested in Nintendo landing GTA5 and all of 2K games future releases or solidifying day 1 releases for the next CoD, Skyrim and FallOut games. Hell why not go to Crytek themselves and seek to publish the WiiU version of Crysis 3(if EA would even allow that!) Point is I'm sure Nintendo isn't just standing by doing nothing, but we won't know what measures they have been working on until they are ready to reveal them to the public...
Lets be honest if Nintendo was worried about anything then Pikman, 101 and the other games we are waiting for from them would have dropped already. apparently no one realizes that they know that they have to knock it out the box with whatever games they release. Also they knew that 3ds sales didn't take off from wacky games they had good quality software for the system. The proof is in reality look at Luigi's mansion people couldn't wait for it and it's selling. Animal crossing is selling. Games like that. People talk about them like they aren't aware but they are aware. I know we as consumers want them to stand up and show something but we also have to remember Nintendo policy with a bad game People remember the negative forever but if you put out a game that is critically acclaimed that games defines you as a company. @ HmongAmerican all my games I have purchased on the system are 3rd party I have owned all there systems the percentage of games bought are 60% 3rd party 40%.
I come to the comments to see what their theories were on pricing and all I see is useless bickering about Pachter. Typical.
