Microsoft’s ‘Got Some ‘Splaining to Do’ to Gamers, Says Wedbush

Wedbush Securities‘s video game analyst Michael Pachter was on CNBC‘s “Fast Money: Halftime Report” with Scott Wapner and company a short while ago to discuss how Microsoft (MSFT) fumbled the “E3” video game conference in Los Angeles this week, in his view. (E3, PS4, Xbox One)

Well this is actually good news for micro, Pachter is a terrible analyst, so expect the opposite.

That line is from "I Love Lucy". I don't know where you got Fox News from...

You just ruined 50+ years of the line by associating it with Fox News.

Patcher is so bad at what he does.. He could probaly analyze his future wife and she would still end up being a man on the honeymoon. lol

You know Microsoft's future is bleak when this info pops up:

"On the latter point, Pachter observed that it will take years before downloadable content takes 30% to 40% of the overall game software market. “I think those guys have a lot of years ahead of them,” said Pachter, as disc-based games continue to represent the larger percentage of games sold."

So this leads me to ask, due to the fact Microsoft have said the Xbox One is built for the downloadable future, where in the hell did they get their facts/research from???

Pachter was right that it will take a few years, M$ simply tried to force it to happen fast rather than let it all happen naturally.

Microsoft wouldn't do that due to all bad press so your better off asking their employee. luckily for me i've a friend working for m$ studio. here is what he said about 10 account sharing and resale of xbone.
*Account sharing works like this one main account other are sub account all these ten can only be formed in same xbone as the main account.
*Main account can be transferred to another xbone but will be disabled in original xbone. sub account can't do this.
*Xbone resale, while it works you need to sale xbone but m$ retailer act as middleman and this is easy step.
*if you tried to sell without m$ as middleman then the person who buys your xbone it will stop working after 1week as xbone detect change in gps location and non-login by main account user as main user face is recognized by kinect. This was made by m$ as lot of xbox360 was stolen and users wanted a way from m$ to prevent theft, relocate and retrieve the xbone.

I dont think M$ even knows what to do at this point other than beg for a chance to make things right.. Theyve dug themselves so deep that theres millions who have jumped ship in their minds & arent looking back

No, they've already explained what they think of the gamer and the consumer.

We needed clarification after their May 21st reveal event, but their press release since then went on to confirm the horrible rumours and when you get an executive explaining things like this to your dedicated consumer base: there's no going back.

They've basically stuck two middle fingers up to their entire gamer demographic, but are still trying to act like they haven't. There's nothing MS can actually explain to gamers to make them feel any better about how they've designed their console with restrictions in mind, and focused less on building a dedicated gaming machine for the sake of "broad-entertainment& quot ;. They've tried the damage control with "the magical cloud", and "you'll see the value in having your consumer rights torn from you".

There's nothing they can do to withdraw from it either, cause at the end of the day that company was willing and stubborn against anti-consumerism for a long time, and honestly, why would you support a company like that?
