Critical Gamer: Michael Pachter Interview

Critical Gamer Writes: Getting an interview with Michael Pachter wasn't easy. Luke and Patrick had to last ten rounds with him in a UFC cage fight in order for him to agree. They did it, just; it was as though Pachter could predict their every move.

During the interview, he preceded each answer with 'I knew you were going to ask me that'. It turned out he'd written a list of answers before we'd even prepared the questions…

CG: Do you ever feel that, being such a high profile analyst, you sometimes shape trends rather than simply predict them?

MP: I don't think I've ever shaped a trend. The only thing I've done that has had any impact at all is to become a lightning rod for the hatred of 16 year-old boys, all of whom know more about everything than I do, and each of whom could perform my job more professionally. I suppose that by attracting their venom, they are less likely to kick the dog, so that's a good thing.

For a grown a$$ man he really is taking to heart what some people in forums/comments sections say about him. Comes with the turf man. You've been making so many predictions and I can't recall you getting one right. So when you say Live is going to be 10 bucks a month you don't exactly get much credence from people.

Good interview. MS peripherals are a rip off, and it's about time something was done about it.

Somnipotent2892d ago

Nice, well I was always curious about his background, A Lawyer, and CFO\COO very impressive it explains his nature a lot.

I personally like him, I think hes a solid speaker and of course hes wrong from time to time, and stop thinking he gets paid just to do guessing you idiots, he belongs to a company that does much more than just guessing.

Dont be naive and short sighted fools
