Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter has said that he expects the delay of LittleBigPlanet to have a negative impact on the number of PlayStation 3's sold last month, but feels the game will contribute to a spike in hardware sales for November.
We already knew that.
don't tell Patcher that. Let him keep thinking he know more than gamers. He even stated that he don't play games.
prepare for 100+ comments now all saying how wise, enlightened and knowledgable michael pachter is.
"Now what they're gonna need to do here is score the most points. If this plan falls into place then they should win the game. " Ok so he didn't say that but you get the point. Hope fully I made it OBVIOUS enough :]
There is also a good chance that the games will have Sackboy on the cover
I stopped listening to this guy months ago. POint is I can make predictions and be correct as often as he is.
My mum could have come up with this.
LBP is a flop due to poor sales for a game which was hyped so much and if sales don't pick up soon i'm afraid LBP will soon find its home on Xbox360.As everyone knows developers can guarantee to make profit from games on xbox360 but on ps3 its 50/50 developers hardly make a profit on ps3.
1) Here noone talked about Gears... so it seems you're a "bit" OT. 2) LBP a flop? Wow, i'd like a lot of flops like it, you gave a new meaning to this word 3) LBP will find its home on xbox360? Dream or get informed at least. 4) You're the perfect M$ fanboy
he is not a 360 fanboy!! he is an xbot or xrat both implies to him
Shinno, he's not worth it. He lives in his mom's basement and gets a rise out of talking crap. He's a childish human being. He keeps talking about Gears 2 and yet he's not playing it. He doesn't have a 360, trust me.
Lets talk about flops 1. XBOX 360 console = RROD FLOP 2. NXE = FLOP ripped of menu from XMB 3. Too Human = Mega Flop 4. 5 time price drop or something = surely a flop console if price needs to be reduced that much. 5. Price drop = FLOP, because PS3 is doing better anyway 6. Fable 2 = FLOP 7. Gears of War 2 = is the biggest flop of all, after playing the first game on the 360 i thought it was going to be something different.. the game is overhyped like GTA IV. 8. Lastly your BRAIN is a FLOP. If LBP did come out on 360 i bet you would be one of those people that would buy it, you 2 faced dik.
Gears Of War 2 (FOTY 08) AAA CONFIRMED Flop of the year. Even my friends who own a 360 say that GoW2 is sh1t.
he cant predict crap so he states the obvious gg patcher
he states the future
I think this one got approved for the comedy factor of it. It's like a monthly event - "Let's all laugh at Pachter!"
Uh, isn't this obvious? I hate Pachter.
im sure many of us here do.
pachter, I don't even know what role he has for sony, and if you tell me that it is mentioned in the full story, well yeah I didn't read. He's not worth it!
He's nothing to do with Sony. He's an analyst who gets paid to say obvious things like "Wii to outsell PS3 & 360" and of course this crap.
talk about waste
...This guy needs to drink a cup of stfu and stop predicting things when most of the time, he's WRONG!
unless LBP sells millions in the first week, it didnt limit anything.
it not the fact that he limit anything. I just this guy keep stating everything we already know, but he get paid for saying it. Everyone on this site can do a better job than him.
LBP was Delayed because of some Nobody C**T off the internet!!! :-/ I f**king hate the internet!!! Anyway!!!;) I had a 2 player game of LBP with someone off this last night!!! ;-D It was SOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH FUN!!! ;-P The game Oozes QUALITY!!! ;-P Unlike the xBox 360 which Oozes FLOPS!!! ;-D
How much this clown get paid for stating the obvoius? I want his job.
I think Patcher reads N4G and hears all the little kiddies screaming LBP is a flop. I think this is his direct response to them. You can call him names and say he is just stating the obvious, but in reality SOMEONE had to say this to get it through some thick skulls. For a "flop" I think I have seen everyone of the people on my friends list playing this game.
I for one, and I'm sure there are many people like me - was all excited to get a copy of LBP and then it got delayed.. In that time, my mind wondered into finding something else to buy with that money I set aside for the game.... now 3 games later I have not even thought about LBP again, or coming back to it. That may have happened about 500 hundred thousand times and guess what, there goes your sales.. For crying out loud, game companies whatever you do, make sure you come out when you say your coming out. Trust me, this affects your sales big time.
Good to see him earning his wage :/
for once I kinda agree with this asswipe, but everyone knew this already....
i dont think LBP will sell 1 million in a week. Thats just being honest. The game is AAA but for reality i dont think it will reach 1 mill in week 1.
and everyone is back on this guys nut$ again. it always happens.
We're on his nuts because he's either consistently wrong or just states the obvious. Normally whoever he expects to sell more units per month is wrong, it's got nothing to do with console allegiance, it's just that the guy is just an idiot who has a probable highly paid job and completely sucks a$$ at it.
He isnt wrong on who he picks to win. He goes with Wii all the time and gets it right. He just picks PS3 to be last most of the time and sometimes it isnt so some people get upset.
OFF TOPIC: Hows dose it feel to get beaten by hull city then u beat man u!?!?! Lets be honest ur not wining the title this season.... XD U beat man u but west brom is gonna beat u :(hahaha)
This guy is so clever, GIVE HIM A MEDAL!
me thinks for game of the year.
Everytime I see article I can also predict the reponses I will see from gamers whic are normally..."Why is this guy an anaylyst , he's already statting the obvious"...same responses from gamers to every different prediction from Patcher.... Ne ways wow Patcher like everyone didn't already expect the delay to hamper sales of the PS3....that's what a recall do to producs in generall...
I don't have Little Big Planet yet :(
100% FUN! :)
