Pachter on Nintendo's Delusion

"Michael Pachter, popular video game industry critic, had some harsh words to say about Nintendo and the Wii U. According to Pachter, "I think that they are still in denial about the Wii U failure. You keep seeing this stat so we're up 82 percent – yeah, 40,000 units went to 70,000 units. Who cares? You're still trailing the other guys by a mile."

Apparently, we are still having this discussion. Still talking about how Nintendo has screwed themselves over with the Wii U, how Nintendo cannot survive without third party titles, and how Nintendo should just bow out now and move all resources towards a new, more powerful system."

Pachter misleads a lot of people.

i don't think anyone questions nintendo's ability to put out decent hardware. the questions are always aimed at what about everything else? third party support non-existent meaning people only buy it for exclusives which also means most have another system they play games on. that narrows down your audience quite a bit but maybe nintendo doesn't care outside of their loyal fans. then there is the hardware, always built to be cost effective. that's fine for nintendo games because they play amazing (many at 60 frames per second) but again not enough to compete with the other guys and therefore lack of outside support but more importantly the hardware is designed for nintendo games. most just gimmicks because they have to be different to stand out.

nintendo will have a new system by the end of 2016 and will not be super powerful.

Where was he when Nintendo was apologizing over and over about its lack of immediate success?

He does that to create a false image of "fair criticism" around himself.

There isn't a sane gamer alive that doesn't know he finds particular joy in slamming Nintendo.
Heck, he even personally went after the fans a few times with slam articles, when they posted logical rebuttals to his rants, on social media channels where they could be argued, because he couldn't handle being proven wrong.

Most of those rants of his against fans were probably taken down, by now, to protect himself.
But the internet remembers.
Screencaps never die.

Pachter is wrong about a great many things, but someday he should wake up and realize that consumers matter when they buy the games that keep clients like his in business.
