What kind of job does Patcher have? I'd love to pull random thoughts out of my ass, express those thoughts and get paid for it.
While they might be random thoughts pulled out of his ass, he is right many times, the man knows the business side of the industry.
Pachter is not bad, it's just that gamers can be an unpredictable bunch. Does he play games? It would probably help if he did.
His job isn't to predict the future like an oracle, but rather to bring forward potential strategies and potential outcomes. If he was right all the time, he would be an investor and make millions, not report his ideas and thoughts of the future. It's a risk proposition.
Is like one of those guys, that start the rumor within the Gaming industry
What about Wii HD? He said in 2010, but Reggie denied.
there is only one suffer girl and no carbon copy can replace her/him/it.
Who is Pachter anyway? He like HHG, but a little less wazoo with his reports and nostradamusisms.
Pacther is a gamer I believe. He was talking about getting a MW2 360 to replace his other one as he wanted 250GB HDD. His kids play the Wii. I think the reason why people (me included sometimes) rag on him is because he seems to pull things out of the hat without explanation.
I got a job at Wedbush Morgan. I had decided that stealing candy from babies for a living was too hard.
"Pachter on 2010: No Next-gen Announcements" Xbox 720 confirmed
I am expecting at least one new console at E3 2010 and there is no denying that PSP2 is coming and there is something else coming as well. I can't say exactly what it is, but its likely someone will have something else there as well. We all know that OnLive, GaiKai, OTOY, Playcast, and others are going to be trying to trow stuff together for E3 2010 as well. I know OnLive wants 2010 launch. I don't know if you could consider it a next-gen platform, but it certainly does have some potential when the broadband speeds are right. I don't expect that to get right for another 5-10 years or so though. There is also talk of Nintendo Zii and Apple TV. Something like Apple TV could work as a console or a device like a cloud gaming service. All they would need to do is partner with the right company and they would be set with new games coming in.
He's said like a million times the Wii HD would be released in 2010! He just said it again recently after Reggie said in regards to Pachter's Wii HD predictions "How firm do we have to be? There is NO Wii HD coming!" What a tool
No really, the next-gen announcements will be in 2011, 2012 at the latest.
Wow pulling random thoughts out of your ass and getting paid for it. Sounds like the life to me. I'd be a millionaire by now.
The greatest dumb ass in gaming history Pachter the intellectual moron, also known as the fandroids greatest supporter and the highly admire gaming mesiah, Quoted "PS3 suck a pachter.com".
more of this guy?
why is this idiot geting 3 news articles on the front page?
Because it's Patcher himself who is submitting the newsitems.
that the wii will sell a lot. Oh man, he's right! Give him a raise!
if patcher was a wather man "sometime in the next 12 months, it will rain in one place for more than 2 days at a time, quote me on that"
That means that the next-gen consoles will be revealed next year!
Yes it will finally able to have HD graphics!!.
but still no wifi lmao
The new Xbox should have been announced already and should be released Holiday 2010... Ps4 should be out by 2011...but people are such freakin tightwads....." wahhhhh, I simply can't spend 4 or 500 dollars on my most favorite hobby in the world. Seriously what freaking posers. Think about what any other hobby costs...snowboarding, hunting, sailing, sk8boarding, golf....shoot, I spend 600 dollars just in the summer on golf green and cart fees alone, and do you notice the trend with all these other hobbies, for most people, you can only do them a certain season of the year. You can game all freaking year for a minimal investment. It's cheap as*es like this that hold the industry back. We need new consoles every 5 years minimum, I'd prefer every 4, or a cycle of different platforms, where a new console would come out every 3 years. It's lame having only 3 serious platforms to choose from (yes I'm discounting the wii, and the PC will always be the BEST platform). Come on people, cry out for new tech.......Scream for it.
Expect a PSP2 announcement at E3
Maybe pachter should patch his own predictions?
This will be epically hilarious if this "Nintendo Zii" thing turns out to be a next-gen announcement that's truly revealed in 2010.
when do i get paid now? also the sky is blue and the grass is green.
