the holidays are madness when it comes to sales people snatching things up left and right

if they have enough units on shelves i can see people snatching em up that new red wii is supposed to be releasing in time for the holidays

Finally he says something that is interesting and not just logical.
But let's see.. I believe that the PS3 will outsell the Wii because of Move, Black Ops and GT5.

Xbox, I don't know. Will be interesting to see how well Kinect will do. If it's ads and marketing will succeed.

But it will be interesting to follow the sales trough christmas.

during the holidays ps3 outsell the wii because of move?
i don't see that happening

this is the holidays were talking about if people just want motion controls then they are just gonna buy the cheapest and most appealing the wii

If I didn't already own a Wii, I'd have definitely purchased the red one.

The numbers this holiday season should be pretty interesting, with Kinect and Move in the mix, and the possibility of a pre-Christmas GT5 release.

I still think it's likely Wii will dominate.

The Killer2851d ago

if patcher says wii will dominate, then 99.9% wii will come out last after 360 and ps3!!

thank u patcher for the hint!

LOL at Pachter!

when he predicts..... the exact opposite happens!!!

He said Red Dead Redemption will sell a few hundred thousand units yet it sold 5 million.
He said PlayStation Move will sell a few ten thousands yet it sold 2.5 million.

The only correct stuff he said were not a prediction but fact: that Microsoft is all about sucking money from Xboxers.

Or he may be playing safe with predictions knowing that the Wii still appeals to a lot of different people. Then again with the PS3 and 360 hitting affordable prices the Wii might not be as appealing.

You beat me to it...
Pachter says Wii is going to do well - then bet the other way...
This guy is a joke...

Baka-akaB2851d ago

tacosRcool2851d ago

n4f2851d ago

but dont worry yeah i understand what ur saying i just did this on purpose

knifefight2851d ago

Picking a consistant high-seller to sell high. What a bold move! This is real news!

Trunkz Jr2851d ago (Edited 2851d ago )

Patcher = Male Sylvia Browne

I can make 100 predictions and eventually one will come true.

AceofStaves2851d ago

From now on, whenever I see pics of Pachter, he'll be Sylvio Browne to me.
Thanks for that, lol!

Lazy_Gamer2851d ago (Edited 2851d ago )

Isn't the Wii already ahead anyway? So it won't be supsising to take the lead during the holiday season. Wow, this guy is an idiot. Still, since Patcher said that, Wii better watch out! Patcher is like a weather forcast except that his predictions turn out the opposite lol.

OSU_Gamer2851d ago

he just means during the holiday season, not overall
