Pachter: Nintendo “dominate” handheld, make “great first-party software”

Nintendo Insider writes:

Asked as to whether the 3DS and PlayStation Vita will be the last handhelds from Nintendo and Sony, Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter has shared his thoughts (3DS, Nintendo)

Nintendo completely dominates the handheld market. Their games fit perfectly w/ the demographics for handhelds.

Agreed the 3DS is a beast! Too bad the same can't be said about their home consoles which in my opinion they need some new blood in the company. ;)

Yeah Iwata needs to's the only way they'll ever be able to push the company forward instead of roaming around in the past. Iwata is so fixated on sticking to tradition but some times tradition has to be broken if you want to keep up with everyone else.

Time have changed...I wish he realised that

I think Pachter is bi-polar.

"Nintendo iz teh stupid, Nintendo iz teh bestez, Nintendo iz teh stupidz, Nintendo iz teh best". He's such an attention whore.

They give just enough for everyone without getting too much into any one genre.

Lacking in sports games though and FPS.

Hopefully RPG's & more strategy games head the US's way.

It's not difficult to state the obvious
andrewer  +   860d ago

He says somthing good about Nintendo. Is the world ending?
solidboss07  +   860d ago
No shit Sherlock - I mean Patcher. Still, for those who like performance then Vita will be un touchable as a hand held device, especially when its Big Brother gets released. PS4 games playable on it, nice.

so when he trashes nintendo, pachter is full of crap. but when he says something good, hes the greatest analysts. you nintendo kids really need to take your naps.
dark-hollow  +   860d ago
When he says stupid stuff like how the 3ds was "doomed" only to be proven wrong then of course people gonna call him out on his shitty "analysis".

Now saying Nintendo handheld is doing great is like calling the water wet. No shit we already know that by his good the 3ds is doing right now.
TekoIie  +   860d ago
First off Im not seeing anyone saying "yeh go Pachter" here.

And secondly.... He is full of crap: http://www.escapistmagazine...

The 3DS has a pretty good lineup. I just prefer the games on the Vita. I feel that there is much more variety and the online is unprecedented for a handheld.
Darkfist  +   860d ago
with all the games the 3ds has, i was only intrested in 3 games
klecser  +   860d ago
This guy flip flops more than a politician.

A year ago he tried to convince people that the 3DS was the Anti-Christ and that it was coming for the souls of your children and your children's children.
zpoc  +   860d ago
someone should compile all his '3DS is doomed to fail' comments from a year ago or so. this dude is a joke.
TwilightSparkle  +   860d ago
3ds rocks I wish the would get more games other than indies then would buy one well at least I have pkenty of ps3 games : )
CaptainN  +   859d ago
The 3DS lineup of games is just to dominant and that's why its just crushing the Vita at this point. Games like Animal Crossing, Fire Emblem, Luigi's Mansion, Project X Zone are some examples of games that are just very good to have on the go. Plus games that have been out like Kid Icarus Uprising, Resident Evil Revelations,Castlevania,Super Mario 3D Land & New Super Mario Bros 2. And lets no forget the power of Mario Kart 7.

And with upcoming games Mario & Luigi Dream Team, Smash Bros, Legend of Zelda, Monster Hunter 4 and Pokemon X & Y, Nintendo is sitting in a real good position right now to keep an iron grasp on that sector for a while.
