Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter has dismissed comments by a fellow analyst which suggested that Nintendo's success will have a negative effect on third party publishers.
Speaking to GamesIndustry.biz, Pachter described Mitchell's comments as "naive".
"Going forward, the publishers are all trying to be largely platform agnostic. The success of the Wii and DS means that virtually every mainstream title will appear on both platforms," he said.
"If consumers have a choice of all games on the Wii and DS, and Nintendo's offering remains constant, Nintendo must lose share. That is a good thing for the third party publishers."
