"Pachter also believes that Super Mario Odysssey will be outsold by Call of Duty WWII and FIFA 18."

Wow you don't say? You can add Star Wars Battlefront 2 to that Captain Obvious

LOL he needed something to say about Nintendo so badly

Petebloodyonion59d ago

Did he?
Oh yeah, you didn't read the article and jump to the comment section like the usual fanboy of this site.
Here's the quote from the article
“Well, Super Mario Odyssey will be the most successful first party game by a lot, it’ll have a 1:1 attach ratio. And if Nintendo merely does its 10 million forecast, so they have 10 million Switches out there, they’ll sell 12 million copies of Odyssey, so that game will be phenomenal.

“But as far as overall sales go, I think Call of Duty WWII and FIFA 18 will both outsell it…just not on the basis of single platform sales.”

Talk about bad mouthing Nintendo!
Damn Pachter!

You just got busted for being a fanboy without even reading the article.

Not to mention, I'd like to see your argument on how you're NOT a Nintendo fanboy.

Except if yall had good reading comprehension you see that I didn't say
"he needed something bad to say about Nintendo"

Of course you guys switch the words around and your mind took it as if I was saying he talking bad about Nintendo which I never said.

I want Patcher's job. Getting paid to state the obvious and make silly predictions would be good.

Also, how would Halo and Gears cause Microsoft to lose market share? Like this makes no sense. It takes a lot of effort to make a game do that to a console. This only makes sense if you look at the totality of one library to another. It can only cause a platform to gain market share and another to lose it indirectly. For example, we could say that Sony's 2017 releases thus far have caused them to sell more consoles than the competition. and that Microsoft's lack of releases caused them to sell less - but its impossible to say that Microsoft lost market-share by releasing Halo Wars 2. That doesn't add up.

He's saying that relying on "the same old franchises" won't lower their market share, but it won't increase it either.

Hasn't Pachter been promoted to Admiral Obvious by now?

sd1159d ago (Edited 59d ago )

I predict red dead redemption 2 to outsell mario within a month of is release.

Wow, WTF is this Pachter smoking?

"Xbone won't gain market share but won't lose any either"??

He's a market analyst but doesn't he know how stupid his claim is sounding right now? The market share is 100% and with the Switch coming into the mix, either the Xbone or PS4 will lose some market share while the Switch gains some of it. So, for the Xbone to not lose any of its current market share, it has to outsell the PS4 heavily so the Switch's gains becomes the PS4's loss while the Xbone stays the same. Sorry Pachter, but the trend says otherwise. The PS4 will likely not lose any market share while Xbone will lose it's market share to the Switch.

I thought he said they wouldn't lose any due to halo and gears. So they'll still lose some overall but more due to switch. Also he was talking purely market share between PS and xbox, he was saying Sony would maintain a 2:1 advantage over MS.

rainslacker58d ago

If Halo and GeOW won't increase their market share, then it doesn't mean they can't lose market share. All that it would take for them to lose market share is for Sony or Nintendo to sell more consoles in relation to how many MS sells. If Nintendo manages to match MS own sales going forward, and Sony and MS remains constant in sales, then both Sony and MS lose market share while Nintendo gains some. Sony and MS own consoles sold will go up, but the actual market share percentages will be shifted.

Market share is just a percentage of the whole, not a measure of total sales when looked at in a bubble.

True at this point I agree with this F●●●●

niko0459d ago

The reality is Microsoft loses market share every month. Sony is outselling them globally 3to1 month after month. And now Switch is outselling them 2+to1 as well.
