Michael Pachter just won’t give himself a rest will he? The analyst everybody loves to hate apparently enjoys being hated by the masses, or maybe he’s just having fun. Either way, the man thinks PS3 is better than the Xbox 360.
didn't patcher use to diss the PS3 all the time or something? either way its his opinion but still why doesn't he just keep his mouth shut and actually be a good analyse for once @Kaveti6616 yeah that's true, i say we should just let anything article related to pachter to die, but that's not gonna happen
Well, he's still saying the obvious. /jk But I agree with the kaveti below. Pather's a b*tch and what he says depends on trends and what's going on in the market.
exactly hay. He just wants to be liked by the masses, so that includes saying things people want to hear. and the obvious overnight success of the ps3 has him saying he loves it. I still hate patcher though. Hell i can predict better then he can.
I dont need patcher to tell me what is obvious
Michael Patcher is still stating the obvious as always. Lol :D
Not that I like to defend Pachter (even though he finally got one right), but as a market analyst, what you said "what he says depends on trends and what's going on in the market." is pretty much his job description. Thats what he supposed to do. Awesome job huh?
I tend to favor my PS3 and so agree in this case. But just out of curiosity does anybody know if this dude even owns a gaming system? I'm really just curious. If this guy is truly an industry expert you'd hope he'd actually spend some time with the medium. With some of his (past) comments you have to wonder... He strikes me as a guy who gets decked out in leg warmers for Wii bowling (his fav game). Hardcore.
i thought the consensus was that patcher is wrong about what he proclaims. So in this case he is all of a sudden right? He he being serious or sarcastic. I can never tell. Many view him like vgchartz. Only right when the view is favorable to what people like. Has he ever dissed on the wii cause I cant remember. It seems to have always been 360/ps3 from what i recall.
He always gets his predictions wrong, but at least he can analyze current situations, heh heh.
Pachter is a fanboy. LOL!!! He does do some attention-whoring, but he's still an above average analyst, at least in my opinion.
Firstly what pachter said is true, secondly he still don't know sh*t about games, stick to spread sheet's and pie charts you middle aged tool.
He's being sarcastic. Hes proly scrolling this thread right now and laughing is ass off at us bickering like rodents lol. Don't know why people hate on him, they have no reason to. "or maybe he's just bought uncharted 2" Oh please...u people are truly delusional. He was cleary being sarcastic. This is the full quote btw: "To all the fanboys out there, thanks for joining us on Pach-Attack and I have to say, I really think the PS3 is the most awesome console ever – it is far better than the Xbox 360.” LOL, hes making fun of fanboys and they don't even know it.
or maybe he's just bought uncharted 2
what you say about Pachter.. But I agree that PS3 is better - I have grown tired of my 360. Sorry, no flamebait intended, but only Gears3 might make me use it again in the nearest future. My 360 is great but noisy. My PS3 ig great, silent, will have 3D support for games anf blu-ray, has free online and boy..I have enjoyed their exclusives so much.
This is the first thing Pachter has ever said that i fully agree with
I'm also a fan of the playstation brand and i too have had a bubble taken away.
Pachter: -"PS3 Is The Most Awesome Console”, "It Is Far Better Than Xbox 360" Random guy: -"You Idiot, that's Not a Prediction, That's a FACT"
@spydiggity- Exactly. PS3 fanboys are being made fun of to their faces and there praising the very person whose making fun of them. Best example of N4G stupidity right here folks. WOW just wow. I'm so happy these people only exist on the Internet because if people were ACTUALLY this stupid on a 24 hour basis, the future of the gaming world would be very scary. Edit: Spydiggity its cool dude. We hear ya. Its not worth it. Wasting our breath on these children is useless.
@deadreckoning666 spydiggity Comment is BELOW this one dude @sikbeta "You're such a PS3 Fanboy, I hate you, you hurting my feelingz by saying that, Waaa...Waaa I'm going to disagree Waaa... Waaaa...." lol kids, Take It Easy....
before this blows up, i wanna throw this out there. watch the video and the way he says it. there is a very clear undertone to his statement. this is an insult to the ps3 fanboys. not an insult to 360 or ps3. he isn't stating an opinion against one console or the other. he is making a very obvious statement that "if i said this the other way around, the fanboys would be in an uproar, but i don't think they're intelligent enough to understand what i'm trying to do so i can mostly get away with it." 360 fanboys, calm down...he's not actually insulting you (as much) and he's not favoring ps3 or 360. it's solely a dis on fanboys of the ps3 variety. let it go...this really doesn't deserve any press. the translation goes like this; "To the ps3 fanboys, i love the ps3 but don't like you, and i can't say anything that isn't praise for your system or you'll slander me all day in the comments under my videos. so i'm saying that i love your system better than the other one to make you happy. i know that saying this will likely piss off a few 360 fanboys, but since they aren't the majority of the fanboys, the payoff will be worth it. the audience to which i'm trying to appeal (the non-fanboys) are probably smart enough to get what i'm doing here, so there you have it. and on top of that, i can probably get the support back from the idiot ps3 fanboys in one simple, bs statement. fanboys are morons, and i'm appealing to the larger portion because they will NEVER understand that deep down i'm actually criticizing them more." and he's right, fanboys (on both sides) are complete idiots and do nothing but hurt the community, but if you're going to single out a specific group within the fanboys, it might as well be the largest (and therefore more irrational and outspoken) group. need proof? watch how many disagrees i get and how many bubbles i lose. EDIT: need more proof? how come the articles that you always know are going to become to hottest and get the most comments the fastest are the ones that deserve no regard? this isn't news, this isn't interesting discussion. it's just fanboy vs fanboy. it's like christian vs muslim...they're both F*CKING tools!
Na, no disagrees from me, I'll just tell you my thoughts on your comment. "You Assume" Trying to make light out of darkness. if you have no Idea what I'm even talking about then oh well.
EDIT Gah, leave me out of this. Idiot PS3 Fanboys are getting laughed at and they think they're laughing with Pachter. -- !READ SPYDIGGITY'S COMMENT! -- ----------------------------- -- Love for both the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360. NONE FOR THE WII, THOUGH!! Right? Right? Right! Now for some good, quality Wii Sports!!
Patcher is more inclined (to skip the word and not saying Fanboy) to MS and Xbox 360. That's a fact, and there are evidence. That comment about PS3 is just sarcasm (just to hear the way he pronounce the whole comment). That's all.
"In fact, I think it's required to live" *claps* I think no one would know the obvious if it wasn't for you, Pachter <3
Everyone should be so lucky to have a job where you get paid for being wrong most of the time.
Tell us something we didn't already know.
Puts popcorn in the microwave.
Hell yeah. Now somebody who has been playing demon's souls give me some advice because I'm just about ready to trash my room in frustration. @nitro: Pachter is a patsy who follows a trend rather than analyzing it. When 360 was up he was on 360's nuts. Now PS3 is up and he's on PS3's nuts. We all know this. Edit 2: @ Nitro I'm trying to be real careful, man, but sometimes my line of sight is blocked by an entrance wall and when I walk in to a castle door the bastards jump out at me and I can't target them fast enough to block their attacks well.
yeah when you see the people back in the nexus don't go off and killing them even though you get allot of points for it (lol its what i did). I think the only guy worth killing is the blue guy thats just sitting around. gives allot of demon souls. Also farm allot, and get better equipment before you rush to fight a boss
Haha, try summoning people to help you..it helps out A LOT.
@kaveti6616 For Demon's Souls, I went for the Faith/Dex build, since it was the easiest and most efficient way for me. I mainly used the Blessed Mirdian Hammer +5, Regen shield +5 (forgot name) and regen ring for stacked regen againts the bosses, but near the end, when I got my Dex higher, I switch to using the Sharp Katana +5 w/ Cursed Weapon spell for boss fights. This site is really good to go by for the game if you need help: http://demonssouls.wikidot.... But back on topic, he probably said this to stir up the websites and what not. Still funny watching people's reaction to it though lol.
If you have a shield, use it! Always! Keep the damn shield button taped down! Walk with that shield up until you know the level Don't Run through a level, walk! It's ok to die, but try to watch HOW you die so you know the attacks of your opponents. Then you can role / side step, block, or interrupt attacks appropriately Only listen to the highly rated messages, and don't feel bad about leaving the "Please recommend this message / This is harsh" lying around Get Blue Phantoms to help or reroll a Royal. They start off with powerful ranged magic and a ring that replenishes magic quickly without spices. You can farm Blue / Red eyed knights with a Royal if you're smart Hope that all helps! Good Luck! :)
has he been asleep for 3 years? as for ps3 fans running this site, if thats the case why do i only have 2 bubbles? i've had nothing but nice things to say about ps3.
I should have like 30.
people don't bubble based on whether people make good or bad comments anymore (or did they ever) it's all about fanboys and their pathetic multiple account debubbling adding bubbles to their own account
Pachter assessment of the exclusivity of Agent is inaccurate, I think. Sam Houser said himself that it is a game Rockstar has wanted to make for a long time, there is no way it was conceptualized in 2007. I wouldnt be surprised if it was already in pre-production actually.
In the interview one of the Houser brothers mentions the limits of DVD and I think that might be one of the reasons it's exclusive. It sounded to me like he felt restrained by DVD. Maybe with Agent being exclusive to the PS3 and therefore Blu-Ray they feel like they have more room to work with.
Then why no pc version?
Sony has money to ya know, :)
you can tell he was being sarcastic.
It is. not sure why ppl are disagreeing w/ you He said something like "for all you fanboys" “Yes, PS3 is the most awesome console"
I think he just teasing with us, lol. Playing with our mines.
playing with our mines?, Isn't that dangerous?
He's just a slave to trends. That's all. Or he's being sarcastic. I don't know. I wish websites wouldn't put so much importance on what he says.
when i come back i expect 200 comments. this will be fun.
Wow, NeoGaf predicted someone would be stupid enough to take that statement seriously, and here we are. smfh
I bet that "someone" feels all warm and fuzzy inside now huh? If you post or read the comments on N4G you know how it goes. Sometimes I wish some people would have a little more restraint and stop commenting on obvious flamebait articles. You and I and that "someone" already know that's not going to happen.
I don't put much attention what Patchers says. This analyst and his predictions, well, especially in the predictions never is right.
When i watched the episode i thought 'will some website make an article out of this? no surely they can't because it's obvious he was being sarcastic...' seriously, for anyone who watches the show they'll know he gets a lot of critisism from ps3 fanboys saying he's bias so he said this sarcastically as a joke. He's an analyst ffs and said countless times how he enjoys both consoles lol
Well I've always preferred the PS3 from the beginning, but now I'm starting to think maybe I bet on the wrong horse. Hmm...
Finally!!!! Patcher says something that makes sense…
proud moment for him
Pachter's been accused of being a 360/MS fanboy for years and he's just throwing it out there to fuck with people.
you made a perfect flaimbate article.
Way to 'fast' edit there, buddy.
this just in fish can swim
I seem to read nothing from this site but cut up quotes from Pachter.
Soon another website will have another headline that has another portion of the interview. Then another website will have the whole interview. At least, that's what I think.
indeed. i quite enjoy watching 'pachattack' but each week i watch it and think 'ffs, N4G will have a few pointless articles based on quotes from the episode'
Why don't people just ignore this idiot? He never has anything real or constructive to say. He's like Howard Stern, just trying to get a rise from people.
You are all morons, hes making fun of you.
Better is subject. I play games, not consoles.
...he would lose a 'Bubble' for saying that!!! ;-D
The PS3 would be a nice system if it would let me activate more than 1 PSN account on a PS3 >_>
He got that one right.
And this passes for news? More like FACT!
even the fanboy Patcher hates fanboys.
