Michael Pachter is a figure who’s usually at odds with those who love Nintendo, since he typically has terrible predictions for the company. It’s his job to weigh in on the video game industry for investors, so while he may often be wrong, sometimes the things he says make a lot of sense. In a note released yesterday after Ubisoft announced delays to Watch Dogs and poor sales for new titles, Pachter says he believes the delay was caused by strong holiday competition.
I believe it was a high selling point for a lot of poeple moving to next gen.. but yeah november is a huge month, when it finally releases (hopefully these months fly) the consoles will be even bigger and the game its self will presumably be even better <3
November is always a busy month, wise decision to push it back in my opinion. They will hopefully polish it some more too.
As disappointing as it was... I think Ubisoft was smart to pull Watchdogs from holiday launch. It has a chance to be a big seller but would have suffered sales wise had it stayed in November.
Im getting Watch Dogs on my Wii U. I believe it was smart to do this since they dont have to compete with AC and Spring is a slow season.. This way Ubisoft can fix some bugs and make it a better game and get some sales.
