Pachter's Podium: Nintendo Won't 'Advance Technology At All' With Wii Successor

It's time for the final edition of "Pachter's Podium" in 2010.

"Pachter's Podium"? Do you get first place for predicting it will be cold in Winter?

rroded2923d ago (Edited 2923d ago )

still sad they havnt put out wii hd like you predicted wrongly so many times...

if so one can only imagine the hard on he must pack for sony outselling all his estimates year after year...

Nintendo is not in the position to "advance" technology. Sony and MS are. Where nintendo is concerned is in advancing enjoyment of games made for their various platforms. That includes if the Wii2 is better than the original wii, the games for that platform will benefit from the advancements made to that platform.

This isnt the "lets outdo the other guy" way of thinking for nintendo. They are really trying to outdo themselves. Like they have done with each of their platforms. NES, SNES, N64, GC, Wii, Wii-2, ???

Each one better than the last. If it is perceived that what they do is better than the other guy then it is by people like him. Sony/MS can bicker (or at least their respected fanbase) about technological advancements.

Nintendo...its all about the entertainment value. A measure to which EVERYONE will have a different opinion on.

He needs to be knocked off!

I hope Pachter is wrong. I don't want Gamecube 3.0 from Nintendo :P
But in all seriousness, I really do want the next Nintendo system to beef itself up a bit.

"Do you get first place for predicting it will be cold in Winter?"
Don't be silly; you get first place for predicting that it will be cold until it becomes cold (See Pachter's "PS3 price drop coming soon!" predictions...all he did was "predict" until it happened, LOOOONG after).

Why still no one ever smack this guy on the face ? I wanna see if he can predict that :/

eagle212923d ago

Nintendo + consumers = WIN

Nintendo + Pachter = N/A

Nintendo owns his soul and he continues to be wrong. :)

Interesting one, probably only time that he makes any sense. ( is suggest anyone read it first before complain)


well actually only wii and DS if you compare with they competitor

most of them either par or slightly advance in they generation

Kalowest2923d ago

Finished reading it and yes he does make SOME sense this time, but aren't all of Nintendos consoles like that, one gen behind.

firefoxprime2923d ago (Edited 2923d ago )

Actually no. Both the Gamecube and the "xbox" were grahically stronger than the ps2. And we all know how that Gen turned out...

Graphics = 100% Success?


XANDEO2923d ago

No just the Wii, but i expect them to be on par with this gen with there next gen console

trevonn952923d ago

@firefoxprime that excuse for a disk is y gamecube was a gen behind

hoops2923d ago

Actually Nintendo's game systems in comparison with Sony's systems were always more powerful with the exception of the PS3.
And a consoles power never determines who"wins a generation"
Never has.
Look at the history of gaming and you will see this.
