Wii sales decline 'runs deeper' than supply constraints, says Pachter

Following the disappointing February sales data, a number of analysts weighed in on the results. While sales were expected to be down, it seems the final tally was a bit lower than expected. Part of it has to do with continued declines in the music games genre, and another major contributor is the drop-off in Wii sales.

Things are always the opposite of what this guy says. His new name should be Mr. Opposite Man ;)

According to this idiot Wii is already dead and nobody ever bought one to begin with leaving Nintendo in last place.

The only people that listen to him or want to hear from here are clueless fanboys. They don't care about the source, they only see something negative about Nintendo so it must be 100% true.

The only thing pachter knows is that pachter doesn't know diddly.

to be honest, the last month was very hard to find a Wii anywhere around my closest cities.

For real? I'm really starting to wonder who bank rolls this guy. And still scratching my head to find a reason why he's relevant or quoted as frequently as he is. He's a tool.

He'll say anything to make a headline.

Hey there is an article about the stock market being very very involved in the hd market. So we arE dealing with some thing far worst than fan boys wait till you decide to deal with day traders and the prefolio men lol. A while back a lot of investors got pretty mad at Sony. That's why their was a shake up.

Check out gamasutra for the details. There was so many looking for a job at gdc and countless more looking for deals. I think every one is about to go the agent way pretty soon. It's really too bad we don't have a draft or develpment league. The resession is looking even worst right now. Scary stuff but we will survive.

E3 is going to be hillarious. Normal mapped Zelda in the wings?

you know Patcher says a lot of things...

I should apply to be an analyst! :D

To his credit, he has predicted some things that have come true, tho.

@below: ain't that the truth. haha
