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.

For once every millionth, I hope he is right!!!!!!! :)

Geobros1233d ago

Me too!!!!!!!! Its very rare for him to be so optimist about Nintendo and I hope he is right.

gaffyh1233d 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).

vishmarx1233d 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.

mikeslemonade1233d 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.

secretcode1233d ago

Do not believe anything coming from a guy who should have been Hokage already seriously it's been what, ten years?

ZombieKiller1233d ago

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

A broken clock is right at least twice a day

Debaitable1233d 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.

SuperBlur1233d ago

He was right , for the canadian lol

we pay 69.99 + tax which amount close to 80 hehe

JetP06191232d ago (Edited 1232d 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.

SilentNegotiator1232d ago

For Nintendo's sake, he'd better be right. They have the most to prove with their home console.

Benjaminkno1233d 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.

randomass1711233d ago

Same here. I'm getting a Wii U either way. Gotta have me dat Kart and Smash.

AKissFromDaddy1233d ago (Edited 1233d ago )

"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?

Metallox1233d ago

"C'mon. Am I right?"

Who knows, there is no supporting evidence for what you say either. Let's just wait.

AKissFromDaddy1233d ago (Edited 1233d 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.

BoneBone1233d ago

"Nintendo won't have the most content. First, there is no supporting evidence for this. " -

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.

AKissFromDaddy1233d ago (Edited 1233d 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 ^_^.

secretcode1233d ago

...Isn't Mario Kart out weeks before E3? Of course we'll see something for it by E3.

coltlokk1233d ago

It's out like 11 days before E3.

AKissFromDaddy1233d 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.

SuperBlur1233d ago

They should call him Tony Hawk because Pachter is doing the sick 180.

Chrono1233d ago

I thought the Nintendo fanboys hate him.

Metallox1233d ago

Has anyone here stated that?

SpiralTear1233d ago

I thought everyone hated him.

randomass1711233d ago

^Yup. Everyone seems to hate him for his work. He's not a terrible guy though from what I've seen.

BattleN1232d ago
