If the PSP has sold 10s of millions of units worldwide, does that still make it a "dead on arrival" console?
Pachters' predictions are "Dead On Arrival"
What I don't undestand is how consistently he gets these soap boxes to stand on....
Because his name is marketable... people see his name then have to hear what crazy stuff he has to say this time.
"I think the PSP was dead on arrival" - pachter psp just sold 326,00 consoles last week in just japan http://www.neogaf.com/forum... how many years later and it it still selling hundreds of thousands of consoles (in one week)... dead on arrival??!!? yup.. pachter, the guy who puts the anal into analyst
He feeds people with controversial statements, that's enough. And any talk about him rises his popularity, he knows what's good for him.
What I find most amusing, are those couple of people who actually "believe" is predictions. All those 3, 1, or 2 disagrees. Are they just blindly following this guy? Haha.
Guys this is good, this means PSP2 is going to be smashing hit. Since mathematically proven: Pachter saying something = 180 degrees opposite
Then I hope that he predicts that tomorrow he won't land face first into a bear trap
I think I know how he makes such claims. He drives a truck over a box of doughnuts and every time the doughnuts are squished, he has to lie. Every time the doughnuts are not squished, he tells the truth...unfortunately for him, the doughnuts always get squished.
Idiotic senseless article.
Actuality, ..GR goes through great lengths to bash Pachted's assessment of the PSP as well as hand held gaming devises. Check out the article again. Its a good read.
Patcher's assumption is the PSP2 will just be more of the same. But it's foolish to think the PSP2 will be modeled after the PSP without consideration for new market trends/conditions. If Sony's been paying attention, which I'm sure they have been, then they know the touch and it's small ap market is a problem for the traditional hand held sytems. And they also know they will have to compete/offer something similar to the 3DS. So, Patcher's right, if it's not positioned to take these things on, it will be dead on arrival. But why wouldn't it be? Here's a thought, how about we see the system first.
Patchy, an idiot on arrival oh and waiting for December release of GT5 like he said....oh wait
i want to know from Pachter if the world will end in 2012 cause i know it wont lol
no,it won't in 2012,now its 2016
lol They're just gonna keep pushing it back. Sorry people the world is not coming to an end, we have to keep putting up with this shit storm.
I got used to delays
...most of the times I just wonder why this guy exists. First time I heard about "Pachter" I thought it was like a software thing that "patches" or fixes things up. I wish he was a "Patcher" instead...After reading all about his revs, bold claims and overconfident this and that, I think this guy was "Rotten on Arrival". "Sony said the game was coming out before the holidays, and repeated that to me a week ago, so I don’t think it’s slipping. Look for a mid-December launch."....wait what?? FACTS: Date: December 7th 2010. Current game in my PS3: Gran Turismo 5. The verdict? You sir are one blind prick...but you do bring a smile to my face every time your predictions turn out to be nothing but pure shit.
Were you expecting an exact time and date from him? He's not fucking psychic. The game came out before Christmas didn't it? When will you guys realise that pacther isn't some sort of god. You all take him too seriously and then get worked up about him.
A) You need to lighten up. B) No one takes Pachter seriously. C) It's a joke so, lighten up (Step A)
Sorry, my bad. It actually didn't sound like you were joking, or maybe it's just me. But people do take Pachter too seriously, otherwise they wouldn't be moaning about him constantly, like the guy who wrote this article. It really pisses me off seeing articles almost everyday like "Pachter: *insert out off context quote from bonus round*" or "Why Pachter is an idiot". I mean he doesn't get payed to make predictions, he just does it for fun when he's on Bonus Round, y'know like the other guests. Phew rant over. Again just thought I'd apologize for my previous outburst at you earlier, you don't see many people doing that here.
see step B again dude
..the guy's just fuc*ing clown shoes, BUT... ..he's annoying clown shoes. That's why he gets on peoples nerves.
Pachter the PSP phone looks full of win. Android and proper controls. http://uk.videogames.games.... Watch the vid.
- He is never right about anything. - It's his job to talk BS - He is a clever man. As a matter of fact, we are now still talking about him even we know that it's useless and not worthy.
Uh oh. Somebody has got sucked into Pachter's words and now are beginning to doubt. Pachter Victim Count: 1
if people dont get what i mean, i meant somebody is believeing what pachter is saying :/ who would?
I don't see the PSP2 doing as well as the 3DS. For me handhelds have all ways been mehh and Unless there is a huge graphical leap in the PSP2 I just don't see it doing that well.
He's got less credibility than Nostradamus right nao xD
"Dead on Arrival" After Steve Jobs said this every idiot Apple fan boy says that now.
handhelds have been more sucessful than consoles this gen in terms of sales and units sold. According to his logic lets get rid of consoles
N4G needs a Pachter-filter.
Maybe if this hack sees what everyone thinks of him he will finally get off his high horse. Gametrailers is losing my respect as a site promoting this clown.
They dick ride him so bad. You seen how Keighley just bumlicks him on Bonus Round? It's basically Pachter Round. Need to get Ngai back on that show, jesus christ. PSP dead on arrival? If 60 Million + units sold worldwide is dead on arrival then PS3 and Xbox 360 should be out of circulation by now. What an idiot.
Completely agree. There is so much flaw in much of the stuff he has said there. To sell 60 mil on your first attempt on a handheld (especially when competing with Nintendo) is a great accomplishment. As for PSP 2 its just stupid because we know nothing about it besides what rumours say. Sony are apparently planning a huge launch for it and given Nintendo's lineup both should do well. Handhelds are over? I don't think so Pachter. They are just getting started. Next gen will never have been a better time to own a hendheld if the rumours are true.
The PSP 2 IMO will be the FIRST handheld gaming device to do FPS and Third Person games the "right way" with 2 analogue nubs. virtual nubs are still MEH atm (high end cellphone FPS). It will eventually get better maybe with some fancy azz haptic feedbacks or "resistance". I hope Pachter at least knows how a lot of people who played the PSP yearned for it and how TPS and FPS shooters quite dominate sales as of lately.
how can i get onn that show and call pachter out!!!???
I feel this guys got a lot of love :D
oh and btw this weeks sales from Japan are in for PSP via Famitsu 1. Over the week, PSP sold 326,639 hardware units (not including PSP go) 2. MH3P sold 2,146,467 units so what I'm trying to say is, STFU Patchy
Patcher is like the Glenn Beck pundit of the gaming world. You gotta take what he says at entertainment value. Never take him seriously.
This dude is like gum stuck on the shoes of the gaming world. Can't we just scrape off the patcher, and keep on walking?
