Outspoken games industry analyst Michael Pachter believes that Nintendo’s successor to the immensely popular Wii won’t be able to compete against Sony and Microsoft’s future offerings, especially if they can’t entice third party developers on-board.
"Pachter... need I say more?"
You can smell Patcher from a mile away.
As I mentioned in the other article (which means this is a dupe) "The article is titled as flamebait tbh. What he actually said was that Nintendo's next console will never be as successful as the Wii was. That doesn't mean it will fail!"
if he is really good he would have make tons of money on gaming stock. you can never doubt big company like nintendo. they've been around for years and well experience. I do agree nintendo can't really compete with nextgen graphical power but they have the best casual content mostly for the young. the 3ds is a great move, kids will love it and so am I. Nintendo is full of surprises.
I think Patcher must work for Microsoft.
how does he make money from these predictions? im actually being serious i don't really understand how this works who pays him his money? why do they pay him? what exactly is his job?
They pay him for the lulz.
does anybody listen to analyst? should anybody listen to them anyway?
Hilarious. It's funny how what he said can be twisted so badly. I watched the Episode of The Bonus Round where he said it will fail and he actually said the successor to the Wii will not be as successful.He never said it will fail!Big difference between not as successful to fail. Oh but the fanboys will eat this up.
I saw it too and he in fact DIDN'T say the word fail. But hey, whatever boosts a fanboy's confidence...
Yea, I watched it too and the world fail and not even a synonym for it came out of his mouth. I dislike Patcher as much as the next guy, but his words are indeed being twisted right here. All he said was that the Wii 2 wouldn't be as big or successful as the Wii.
the wii should have already failed sd game machine that cant play dvd's and majority of its top games are remakes. wii 2 i hope it does fail but it will probably sell millions
You couldn't give a rats ass about DVD playback.
And the sky is blue and patcher makes another prediction
c'mon guys we can say honestly that you know the wii 2 won't be as successful as the 1st was no way but any idiot can see that and the 3ds wont be big as big as the ds was i dont see it but doesnt mean they will fail. the problem with ninty is they now must live on gimmicks and sadly for them not every gimmick gonna succeed period.
I still don't think there's going to be a "Wii 2". I still believe Nintendo will keep support for the Wii to entice the casual crowd, and release the Nintendo Revolution as a hardcore gamer's platform.
i think he said the same thing about the wii, and look how that turned out
An analyst is like a guy who bets on black and red, breaks even and claims he's a winner.
The current WII was not supposed to be a succes... It almost doubled the other 2! For a console that didn't stand a chance (some have said). I think it's very good. As for the WII 2, who know's?
Wii 2 better have sex with me...>=(
Would come from a Nintendo gamer. I think most Wii owners are still praying that the current Wii will have sex with them.
My last played game was Mass Effect 2 on the PC... The ball is in your court.
for all i know the Wii2 doesnt even exist. And as long as the Wii keeps selling well i dont see why nintendo will release another console.
And a ton of other features gamers take for grated(Cough*Sony/Microsoft fanboys*Cough). The name "Nintendo" is as big as "Apple".What did you believe when Nintendo considered them to be the most threatening? In Nintendo's eyes: Sony and Microsoft are fighting for the "core" market, while Apple and Nintendo are battling for both!(Core & Casual). And enough with this, "(N)intendo(G)ot(P)awned& quot; stuff... Sony wants it to sound like, "Nintendo gaming portable".
Silly little boy. The Wii doesn't have features.
Yea it does? It can play music, videos, view photos, just like the HD consoles. It has Netflix, just like the HD consoles, it has an internet browser that is actually better than the PS3 one. It has backwards compatibility, unlike 95% of the PS3s out there. It has the Nintendo channel, where you can view vidoes on the latest Wii/DS games and news. I has Recommendations, where you can look up a game and see what people liked/disliked about it, how long it is, and the type of gamer that the game is for. You can boot downloaded games from an SD card. There's private chat rooms, just like on the HD consoles. And you can view the latest news and weather, just like on the HD consoles.
ANALYST AND PATCHER FAIL
Where's my check Wedbush? Check this prediction: Nothing with Nintendo's powerful name on it will fail to at least 2020. Make dat check out to Eagle21 and I will invest it all in Nintendo stock. See ya in da future! :)
WHO THE FUCK IS MICHAEL PACHTER?! Why does his opinion (which I can only ever recall as being a statement of the obvious OR completely wrong) matter to anyone? Why does his bullshit get plastered everywhere?
what a stupid childish fanboy rant hes suggesting that a Wii2 would fail on what grounds the only consoles that will fail are 720/PS4 as they will be just better graphics same games plus with Wii it has no HD no dedicated online its a moderate hardware ect lots more 4 a Nintendo gamer to look foward too i mean Mario Galaxy CGI/HD/3D no glasses is more appealing then GOW5 in super resolution
its like saying Apple will fail with Iphone5,Nintendo almost own the game industry i think its 66% Nintendo with 33% shared off others and Patcher thinks that Ninty will fail WOW im trying to see his logic as u would think that if Nintendo was to bring Wii2/WiiRS out in 2012 with N-Cloud a dedicated Online the rumoured Quad core armada 4x1.6ghz and Fusion APU,Shader model 5.0 ect it would gather more 3rd partys than any system before it period and sales would double the original wii think 40 million in 1st year as Ninty would corrupt the whole industry and would steal PS3/360 gamers as they are mostly the new age gamer and go where the Graphics are at so Sony cant keep playing wait and see then put something more powerful or what they think is more powerful as this approach is doomed useless at a certain graphical level because if Wii2 gets rumored GPU/CPU it will support DX11/SM5.0 and to try and beat that wouldnt be possible u could only equal it same with 3DS its 95% about as far as portable graphics can go due to battery and other issues as Maestro 2G in 3DS makes it so powerful its nonsense to claim psp2 is in another league when Crytek come foward with there 3DS game tell me its less powerful than psp2 Unchartered with zero action on screen.
