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.

Ziriux3627d ago

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.

IdleLeeSiuLung3627d ago (Edited 3627d ago )

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.

darkequitus3627d ago

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
