Playstation The Official Magazine (May 08') interviewed Michael Patcher, one of the premiere analysts for the video game industry, Michael was asked if the video game industry is recession proof. Hit the jump for his response...
"Playstation The Official Magazine (May 08') interviewed Michael Patcher, one of the PREMIERE ANALYSTS FOR THE VIDEO GAME INDUSTRY" LOL
I like to call him Michael(99.9% wrong) Patcher. A blind sniper with a patch over one eye, wearing bifocals with broken lenses, with dirt in his eyes has better accurecy.
I am also that harsh, but predicitng the future is a tricky game, and I bet you would do just as badly.
I bet my luck would be better with a dart board.
Pachter actually has a good amount of insight into the financial side of the game industry. His ideas on the development side of things...not so great. But his opinion seems quite accurate and it's good to see. With the state of the economy it's great to see the games we love won't be effected. Let's just hope we can continue to afford buying them...
I agree he is good as a financial analyst, but his opinions related to game development are another story.
