Michael Pachter shares his thoughts on the launch sales for PS4 and Xbox One.
He might be right this time around.
These groundbreaking and incredibly bracing predictions Pachter makes is why he gets paid the big bucks!
lol, Right... i had a Hard time putting my finger on this one, how Does he do it?? an incredible man he Is i must say.
My predictions: - PS4 to outsell Xbox One at launch and in lifetime sales by around a 2:1 ratio - PS Vita to sell an average of 10 million units per year as of the $199.00 price drop. - PS Vita TV to outsell PS4, Xbox One, PS Vita Handheld, WiiU and every other set top box/microconsole on the market once it releases in the west. Sony's Internet TV service to be the center piece of this new console. - PS3 to sell like hotcakes, surpassing 100 million in lifetime sales within the next two years
Nice stealth troll georgenoob.... And some complain that sony fans are bad.
Its not stealth trolling... Its common sense.. Lol Most of us rational people know $100 difference almost guarantees more units sold.. that was never in question Is it 4:1? God no... 3:2? Maybe.. 4:3 is getting closer imo
@Georgenoob, because it is less expensive, it doesn't mean it has less quality. Can I use the current generation of consoles to justify what I'm saying or are you arguing that the 360 is trash?
Of course the price point is a big draw for consumers. But even when the ps4 was priced at $460 it sold out in a day at no.1 on amazon. And yes, making it seem like the ps4 is in some way lower quality and only popular because of price is trolling.
M-I-C-H-A-E-L P-A-C-H-T-E-R that's correct, right? cause I want to write it in here; http://vublex.com/wp-conten... I WANT HIS JOB! make dumb statements, wrong predictions ALL THE TIME and predictions even Captain Obvious will be proud of and still make money!
@georgeenoob sony have the price (fact), the better hardware (Fact), and the quality
@George - Sony has both the lower price and the higher quality.
So George, you're saying ps4 WILL in fact outsell Xbone, as well as people only bought X360 over Ps3 because it was cheaper? Is THAT what you're saying? Can I quote you on that?
I am getting tired of you guy putting down Patcher, he has proven to be a great predictor./s
Misconception he gets paid to predict.
no [email protected] and the sky is blue.
In other news, Water is wet
LOL @ goerge with his can of worms...
Did any of you bother too look at the actual video or did you just read this article and decide to spew hate ???. Michael Pachter was asked a direct question about how many units would be sold, and he answered it....Big Deal.....effing lemmings on this site
@andibandit "effing lemmings on this site" Yet here you are. OT: You don't have to be an analyst to know this. Sony has the cheaper price point, more powerful hardware, positive press and (IMO since the 1st 3 are facts and this is my opinion) better 1st party studios.
one thing though , Can Pachter predicts when he will stop predicting ?!
The PS4 is leading in preorders so that was kind of a no brainer.
@ georgegreenbob: I'm not saying you're butthurt, but... http://24.media.tumblr.com/... At any rate, this is kind of a given since a lot of votes and opinions went towards the PS4 that I've seen.
"Price always comes before quality in the eyes of most consumers, it's not that hard of a prediction." -georgeenoob lol Funny how these Xbots talk about it's just the price making the difference not the quality. When the Xbox 360 is selling cheaper than the PS3 and doing better just in the US, it's the other way around and they say it's quality. Ignoring the RRoD fiasco and blindly not acknowledging that it's in 3rd place worldwide. Idiots... "Most of us rational people know $100 difference almost guarantees more units sold.. that was never in question" -n4rc That's not the case with the PS3 outselling the Xbox 360 in worldwide sales. Playstation always had the better quality for the price thus selling more units and in less time. And right here ladies and gentlemen is another case of Playstation doing better than Xbox for a 3rd time.
Big deal. My dog could have made that prediction. Give him 100 000$ per year. lol They are paid to be precise, not random. You just need to look at VGChartz and see the tendency.
I might have to side with georgeenoob on his remarks,only because a lot of gamers chose price over quality last gen.Though the difference this time is lower price will still buy you quality.
Thats not really the case. America was the only country where the 360 outsold the Ps3. The Ps3 had a slight lead in Europe and dominated the 360 in Japan with the higher price. This gen there are other reasons. MS did a terrible job of communicating to the public. MS pissed off alot of gamers with the DRM and retarded restrictions. As soon as Sony said they weren't doing any of that crap PS4 preorders were through the roof. MS priority with the xbox 1 isnt games. All they talked about was TV and sports. The first xbox 1 ad was about football they didnt show any games. The only reason the xbox 1 is more expensive is cuz of the camera. Which MS already confirmed that you don't need it to use the console but they are still forcing it on you anyway.
Lmfao this might be the first time that he will be right lol
This is the man who only a few months ago predicted that XB1 would wipe the floor with PS4 stating they would easily win the next gen console war. Glad I don't pay this guy's wages!
M$FT will slide him a bill or two to say the opposite before Xbone launches. Pachter: "My powers of deduction tell me teh CloUd and Kinect with an NSA launch title will boost the XBone's sales lead over PS4".
PS4 is cheaper and 50% more powerful, Xbox fanboys be mad.
In Sony fan boys dreams ? Name me one game so far coming out for ps4 can beat Ryse on graphics bf4 even looks better on Xbox one guess what I played it on actuall Xbox one console at London have u got anything else to say ?
Infamous ss destroys ryse graphically and it's an open world too. Now tell me.. Oh wait, You only have 1 Bubble...
Its not 50% more powerful... That figure was pulled out of a bloggers ass... It has advantages in some areas, yes.. But thats it.. There is no 50% across the board and zero evidence in the games themselves.
^ The GPU is literally almost 50% better in all aspects. The ram is also better in every way. It is significantly more powerful then xbone in all regards.People can nitpick and argue the finer % points but it doesn't matter, it's way, way more powerful in the end.No matter how much spinning, theories and outright lights certain xbox fans try to spew.
Thunderhawkxbox killzone shadow fall looks better than ryse god of war QTE edition and keep sayin that xbox games are better looking lol i wanna see you face once the leagues of naughty dogs studios will unleash their games in 2 years from now
F**CK the 50% rumour that rumour was "johnny said to this guy which said to this guy which said to me and it might be 50%" Seriously, stop taking rumours as facts or you will be severly dissapointed. Buy the console for the exclusives, the third party games are going to be identical (both consoles have good eclusives, PS4 has better thou in my opinio)
Now he's just staying the obvious, trying to get that win:loss ratio up.
Just in... Christmas Day to be on December 25th this year.. Patcher predicts!
he was answering a listeners question, but nevermind, hes damned whatever his answer
You are spitting out the obvious, Pachter.
He is fooling himself. A couple of month before He predict just opposite what he is saying now.
I remember that, apparently Skype was the killer feature that was going to take X1 far above in sales compared to PS4.
That wasn't very hard to predict considering the mess Ms are in with the Xbox One .
Really? No s*** Pachter!
FLASH!!!! this just in: OUR TOP STORY IS: cloudy with a chance of meatball 3 details at 11
Pre-orders were 124 PS4's for every 64 XB1's at Gamestop until they ran out and then started taking more pre-orders. I would assume that if PS4 sells 2 million consoles, XB1 will sell 1-1.5 million
He would be pointing out the obvious though.
@ n4rc. Is that what happened with the 360 and the PS3?
because stating obvious requires analytic skills.
All of a sudden Pachter is right. He used to be full of crap....apparently....
He's still full of crap. Just because he sometimes states the obvious doesn't make him any less of a tool when it comes to predicting. Love how folks always wanna try to play that card you just pulled, completely ignoring good sense in the process.
Common sense? On this site.... Right! Either you say PS4 is almighty or go home. Anyone who gives a good explanation on why they like X1 is hammered, no matter how valid. I myself like gaming, so will have both, but tired of the backed up Sony fanboy crap.... Its gone too far, unchecked.... Saying it was the other way 8 years ago does not cut it....
Its funny how he gets payed for predicting these.
yeah...I would rather he shut his mouth as he's gonna jinx it with this!
Patcher is always predicteding something lol
Well it is his job...
I predict Patcher will predict again [puts head down and walks away,ok not really,i'm still at the desk typing]
OOOHHHHHHHHHHH! now i see how the site works.nowwwww Patcher is on point. LMFAO!
Yeah, we agree with him when we think he's right, and disagree when we think he's wrong. Why is that unusual? That's not this site, that's everyone in the world. Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.
mr pachter, one console is 100 dollars cheaper than the other. It isn't too difficult to make this prediction..
Dam it. Now the opposite will come true.
you know what that means... They both will either sell the same or the XB1 will outsell it.
I just come to say lolwtflmao
Mr.Pachter,he is the Master Of The Obvious. lol
noooooooo...really? this guy must be a genius. I'm pretty sure anyone could predict this
Ooohh that was a hard-hitting prediction! Money well earned Pacther!
patcher ... again predicting the unpredictable
What was his first clue?
A raging clue perhaps?
My 72 year old grandma could have predicted this lol it's completely obvious , there are only a set amount of stupid enough ppl to buy an xbone. The ps4 has about double the console allocation and the cheaper price along with a better rep and better more powerful hardware it's a no brainer.
