Pachter Believes Nintendo Will Have The Most Announcements At E3 This Year

Online gaming publication Gamingbolt has conducted a lengthy interview with famed analyst Michael Pachter which covers a number of topics. Interestingly, Pachter believes that Nintendo will have the most new announcements at E3 this year out of the big three. Pachter also mentioned in the interview that despite Nintendo’s struggles with the Wii U and declining Nintendo 3DS sales he very much doubts they will ever go third-party. (3DS, Nintendo, Wii U)

For once every millionth, I hope he is right!!!!!!! :)
Geobros  +   637d ago
Me too!!!!!!!! Its very rare for him to be so optimist about Nintendo and I hope he is right.
gaffyh  +   637d ago
Yeah I don't think he would say this if he didn't know something, because he normally is very negative towards Nintendo because he believes Iwata is an idiot (and he's probably right there).
vishmarx  +   637d ago
pokemon 16.78 million colors,
super mario rpg,super mario bros.super mario a-z,

seriously.this guy is an idiot,LETS HOPE NINTENDO PUTS ON A GOOD SHOW,thats it,without the comparisons.
mikeslemonade  +   637d ago
Nope. Sony Will have the most annoucements and the they will have the most annoucements that actually matter.

Do not believe anything coming from a guy who said Next-gen games would be priced at $80 even when Sony said they would be $60 before.

Pachter is an idiot imo. Everything he sais isn't accurate or true.

Yeah Im not a fan of Patcher because he's full of shit.

A broken clock is right at least twice a day
Debaitable  +   637d ago
What he says is just opinion & not facts. No different than anyone commenting here.

With so many studios closing left & right last gen, I for one was expecting a price increase games with next gen so studios can stay afloat.
SuperBlur  +   637d ago
He was right , for the canadian lol

we pay 69.99 + tax which amount close to 80 hehe
JetP0619  +   636d ago
@ secretcode, Naruto doesnt need to be hokage, if you read the latest chapter with kakashi. He mentions Naruto surpassed that Kage stage. anyways back to topic. I doubt Nintendo would have the most announcement considering they would be only doing nintendo direct again (NOT A LIVE E3 STAGE demonstration but a recorded video for everyone to stream) and it has less airtime than the 1:30- 2:00 Show of the Ps4 and xbox one. Pretty sure xbox will show a lot of games but Ps4 will steal the show with first party ips, addition of new killer indie titles, project morpheus, extended support for ps3, PSNOW and a batch of new upcoming games for vita.

my predictions for nintendo:
new nintendo family game sort of like nintendo land or wii sports.
New footage of that new xenoblade game
New Zelda announced
New footage for smash and mario kart
a new Fatal Frame game for wii u
probably a new Sku for the wii u as well

I do too. Nintendo should be able to compete more with the others.
SilentNegotiator  +   636d ago
For Nintendo's sake, he'd better be right. They have the most to prove with their home console.
Benjaminkno  +   637d ago
For a console that's been out for almost a year longer, and gobs of indie support; That's an easy guess there Mike. I'm keeping my expectations low. It's going to be a great e3 though.

Im already set as far as Nintendo is concerned. My list solid.

I'm more interested to see what's new with everyone else.
randomass171  +   637d ago
Same here. I'm getting a Wii U either way. Gotta have me dat Kart and Smash.
AKissFromDaddy  +   637d ago
"Thinking" and "Believing" are not equivalent, in my opinion
"So, basically, you said that Nintendo will have the biggest content based announcements at E3 this year, especially compared to Sony or Microsoft.

Michael Pachter: Yeah, I "think" so. I mean, I "think" we are so overdue for some Smash Bros. and/or Mario Kart, I "think" we’ll see them, I "think" they’ll be playable, and I "think" they have to have them out by this holiday. I mean, if they don’t get these games ready soon, then you can just forget the Wii U."

Nintendo won't have the most content. First, there is no supporting evidence for this. Second, Pachter is agreeing to the word "biggest" but this "new" title reads, "Pachter Believes Nintendo Will Have The "Most" Announcements"

Pachter even cast aspersions on Nintendo in the following sentence:"It’s like, come on: how many years does it take after launch to have one of your core, highest selling franchises out?"

C'mon. Am I right?

Who knows, there is no supporting evidence for what you say either. Let's just wait.
AKissFromDaddy  +   637d ago
Ahhh, that is truly funny. Kudos.

However am I wrong? "Let's just wait." As we all wait, is there supporting evidence as of now that Nintendo will have the most games or content to show at E3? That's all I wrote.

If yes, I'm not above being corrected. I just haven't seen the supporting evidence. I'm sorry if I offended anyone in the least. I apologize.

You seem to have the supporting evidence which you're keeping a secret?

Dude, sit down down and keep your brains warm... roll another doobie while you're at it.

Welcome - to N4G.
AKissFromDaddy  +   637d ago
"You seem to have the supporting evidence which you're keeping a secret?" That's the issue. I don't have any evidence that Nintendo will have the most content at E3. I'm not above you sharing any sources that will inform me though. I'm very open to being corrected with sources.

"Dude, sit down down and keep your brains warm... roll another doobie while you're at it." I always sit down when I type and I don't smoke but I play videogames if you're interested. I don't mind playing.

"Welcome - to N4G." I've been here since 2010 or 1337 days ago. I'm familiar lol ^_^.

It's out like 11 days before E3.
AKissFromDaddy  +   637d ago
To add onto Coltlokk comment, Mario Kart 8 releases May 30, 11 days before Nintendo Treehouse E3 Live Stream.

I don't believe Nintendo will show Mario Kart 8 at E3.

coltlokk  +   637d ago
It's all perspective. In the end, it comes down to which kind of games you like more, not how many big announcements are made.
randomass171  +   637d ago
Personally I think that Sony will do best too, but I think that's just cuz I'm a fan and I'm excited for Sony the most lol. Nintendo comes in close second in my book. But hey, maybe I'm wrong. For all I know Ubisoft will have the best conference... or not.
Realplaya  +   637d ago
They always win it?
Haki1112  +   637d ago
They always win??? What about when ps3 price was shown at E3 for the first time? 599 US Dollars!!! *Silence*
AJBACK2FRAG  +   636d ago
How? By showing pc footage and calling it a PS4 game? Lucky you! It's my opinion the the Sony conference is always a snooze fest!
The 10th Rider  +   637d ago
I WAS excited for Nintendo's E3.

EDIT: Lol, at disagrees. I was joking. I am still excited, but everyone knows Patcher's track record. I honestly think Nintendo will be bringing a lot to E3 this year and it's good to see Patcher recognize that.

DynDasE  +   637d ago
But the lack of stage presentation is still the biggest let down. Videos are just lacking of the chemistry between presenters and the audiences :<
Realplaya  +   637d ago
The presenters suck it's not like your watching a concert of your favorite artist. They will actually be on a bigger stage live. With a great game you can play.
N4g_null  +   637d ago
Seriously? Apple kills all in presentation. I still won't buy apple lol. The video game companies generally suck at presenting. Only game footage bails them out. I hate being sold to.... just give me the goods... I don't care about presidents and ceos!

This guy is an idiot, wish he'd just disappear. Anyone of us could make better predictions them this guy...
mike32UK  +   637d ago
They might have the most, but they certainly won't have the best. Not for my personal tastes anyway
Sly-Lupin  +   637d ago
This is silly. Nintendo is the only developer on the planet that literally produces a game for -every- taste.
mike32UK  +   637d ago
Please name an exclusive game on the wii or U like the Last of Us, Titan fall, Uncharted, Alan Wake, Sunset Overdrive, Heavy Rain/Beyond.... Not to mention the lack of GTA and other multiplatform big hitters
N4g_null  +   636d ago
Alot of those games suck though.

Last story, xenoblade, fatal frame, perfect dark, I know that is not there's any more... killer instinct was good when they had it also.

I bet nintendo could help those sony games not suck as much though.

Face it sony needs nintendo really bad. I mean which of those game do you replay monthly or every year... years after the hype...
BABY-JEDI  +   637d ago
I think Nintendo are run by a bunch of complete idiots. They really should have got their act together (this gen) by now
randomass171  +   637d ago
VGChartz aren't a great source to cite, but Amazon also said the game's pre-order count is pretty dang high. I'll be very surprised if this game doesn't hit a million within the first month.
BABY-JEDI  +   637d ago
If your trying to make a vague point then you have achieved that. But it would be better if you explain yourself.
; )
Also, the rest of the chart says Hi, your competition is here a lot more than you now.

They certainly -need- to have the most announcements.
Activemessiah  +   637d ago
I believe Pachter is and always has been an idiot.

There, anyone can do these predictions too.... but I hope he's right on this one, excuse me while i take a shower.. i feel dirty.
The 10th Rider  +   637d ago
Actually, if you want to be technically correct...He is already wrong. Nintendo will probably have very few announcements AT E3. Lots of game demos to play and some great tidbits from their roundtable discussions, but most of their actual announcements will happen at their digital media event which isn't technically at E3. Should be awesome, nonetheless.
coltlokk  +   637d ago
It's not AT E3 the physical location, but the Digital Event is obviously associated with E3.

But you get the point. Most people will refer to the digital event as part of E3 anyway.
Demarco156  +   637d ago
i like when nintendo was the company that make best looking and original games with new characters and world, now they just do what they did before

everyone loves patcher when hes greasing nintendos wheels.
ocelot07  +   637d ago
I believe Nintendo will announce at least 2 new titles. Can I have some money now? I mean this is what Patcher does right? He gives predictions and gets paid. So there is my prediction where my money?

MYDEATH21  +   637d ago
Would be nice if Nintendo enter with a new console. No bs just games. They need something that's really going to pull new devs in.
paulcek  +   636d ago
A new console right now would actually make devs angry. How many indie titles are developing on Wii u right now? How many third party developers are actually working on a wiiu title? If Nintendo drops the Wii u the very few third party studios that support the Wii u would get screwed. Take sonic boom for example...those guys have been working on sonic boom for 2 years...if Nintendo enters a new console they'll be pissed.

Pachter, it doesn't matter whether you believe it or not; Nintendo themselves have stated they'll never go third party.
You just didn't want to believe them up until now.

I hope both Sony & Nintendo have a huge I own PS4, PSVita & Wii-U......
I'm pretty sure Sony will have a kickarse show, in regards to PS4, as they seem to be catering to my gaming needs....BUT, as for Vita & Wii-U.....I'm not too confident.... Vita seems to just be getting a lot of sub-par handmedowns (or in some cases great handemedowns, but handmedowns none the less), & Wii-U seems to be just rolling along to that Nintendo beat, of EVERYTHING Mario...I am not a fan of Mario Tennis, SSB's, & even the beloved MarioKart is starting to wear thin....& with Mario World 3D being a damn dissapointing 2.5D game, instead of a Mario64 killer, I am a little dissapointed with Nintendo's ethos.... Maybe it's time they grew up, & started knocking out some mature themed inhouse games, AS WELL as the usual suspects... Imagine what Miyamoto could do, if given the free reign to develop a totally new, less Nintendo controlled IP for that doesn't contain the name or characters of Mario, Zelda, or would be epic, & Retro Studios could still fire out a Metroid for Wii-U, as Miyamoto gets the other teams onto some new IP's.

I give it a week before he contradicts himself and really points a finger at Nintendo for "not bringing it" to E3.
Ck1x  +   636d ago
I Don't want Sony, Microsoft or Nintendo to just come out and announce games that have no release date in sight! Please announce games that are coming this year and next... This is where Nintendo will probably shine, on the games that are coming out sooner than later.
