Everyone's favourite video game analyst, Michael Pachter, tells us why 3D gaming hasn't evolved.
What a revelation!
And yet Pachter was praising 3D when Sony first pushed it (then he hushed up when it didn't sell) and he praised it again when the 3DS pushed it (and hushed up when it didn't sell). When will people realize that Pachter is paid simply to try to influence the market?
Absolutely! This is what people seem to overlook. Shareholders are the only people he's trying to influence
He has no power over consumers this guy no matter how hard he tries. Spit on Nintendo because there is no COD and spit on 3D now after he was juicing in his pants over it 2 years ago he's nothing but an incompetent hypocrit.
Incompotent or not, he's still made a living and a name for himself. A lot of what he says is just common sense to begin with. Of course Sony were the main backers of 3D, they sell hardware that supports it. What's the next headline, Sony now supports cloud gaming because they want to support Gaika?
3D Vision on PC is awesome. TVs look like low quality garbage.
Sony pushed 3d, the people who bought got cheaper 3d counterparts like vizio, lg or hi sense. As Homer Simpson would say D'oh.
that pretty much confirmed what i've been saying all this time, this patcher guy is a clown.
Yeah, I don't even care anymore when someone gets his name wrong. He's just that irrelevant to me.
Yeah pachter is full of it he kept saying the gears of war franchise was coming to Sony platforms,....eehh!!...wrong not only did they not come those dorks from epic said it would never ever happen. Ever. So pachter shuts up for a couple months, then sure as shit another statement pops up "Epic salavates at Sony's ser base for gears"". No it doesn't even cross their minds because Microsoft owns the gears brand, epic says they own the IP,...yeah right they'd have to be retarded to alienate ps3,ps3,vita, wiiu and PC.
The next thing he'll tell us is that Sony is heavily invested in blue-ray.
stop spreading your lies!
Patcher: The sky is blue "See guys! Patcher is not ALWAYS wrong about what he says :DDDDDDDDDDDD"
Shocking Sony, just shocking...
"Everyone's favourite videogame analyst, michael pachter" lol by that reconning activision is everyone's favourite developer!
and this kind of insight is why pachter is such a respected voice in the industry. o_O
The fact this joke of a man actually makes more money than me makes me a very sad panda.
3D sells only because its now included as standard in most mid range TVs.
Great analyse of Pachter this guy is a genious ! I was always wondering why I had to buy tooth paste on top of buying tooth brush. Now i know why and ONLY because Pachter talked! *facepalm*
Did you know supermarkets sell games cheap so you buy a loaf of bread
i prefer Pasta :D

I choo choo choose you
Nothing gets chocolate out. See?
obviously. it is funny though because most of the pro-sony-anti-microsoft brigade used microsofts 'eh' stance on 3D as proof that the 360 wasnt as powerful as the PS3, when in reality it was just that Microsoft didnt have anything to gain by pushing 3D unlike Sony. microsoft made the 360 support 3D from the same day the PS3 did, but they didnt focus on it. most of us already knew the reason why sony focused on 3D was for their failing tv business, and said as much 18+ months ago. Pachter, well im not even going to bother saying anything about him.
It was a huge investment to say the least. 3-D was also a big reason we got a Spider-man reboot instead of a proper Spider-man 4. Sony was pushing 3-D and Sam Raimi didn't want it to be in 3-D.
Spider-Man 3 was garbage. I'm glad Raimi didn't get chance to make another. Spider-Man 2 left the series on a high point, only to be brought down by its terrible sequel.
Spider-man 1 and 2 Raimi had full control of, with Spider-man 3, Sony had a lot more input and forced Venom into the movie and it was basically Sony's fault why the movie wasn't up to snuff. Sony wanted even more power and say with a Spider-man 4, so Raimi said no thanks. I haven't seen The Amazing Spider-man, and I don't plan to. As a comic book fan, I get tired of seeing origin stories over and over again.
The sun rises every morning True story!
You should be a sun analyst! You're very talented.
Reminds me of that one episode of Robot Chicken when they made fun of M.Night Shyamalan... WHAT A TWIST! In case Pachter doesn't know...Movie theaters endorse 3D movies because the tickets are more expensive...
YO DON'T SAY! Who pays this guy?! 3D is a bucket of fail, man. I don't want anything coming between me and my gaming or me and my movies and movies made with 3D in mind are shot corny as hell with shots deliberately coming at you and doing stupid things that distract from the experience. Its whatever...let me find another article.
