Analyst Says The Nintendo Wii 2 Will Fail And Other Rants

Outspoken games industry analyst Michael Pachter believes that Nintendo’s successor to the immensely popular Wii won’t be able to compete against Sony and Microsoft’s future offerings, especially if they can’t entice third party developers on-board.

"Pachter... need I say more?"

You can smell Patcher from a mile away.

As I mentioned in the other article (which means this is a dupe)

"The article is titled as flamebait tbh. What he actually said was that Nintendo's next console will never be as successful as the Wii was. That doesn't mean it will fail!"

if he is really good he would have make tons of money on gaming stock.

you can never doubt big company like nintendo. they've been around for years and well experience.

I do agree nintendo can't really compete with nextgen graphical power but they have the best casual content mostly for the young.

the 3ds is a great move, kids will love it and so am I.
Nintendo is full of surprises.

I think Patcher must work for Microsoft.

how does he make money from these predictions?
im actually being serious i don't really understand how this works

who pays him his money? why do they pay him? what exactly is his job?

Ducky3794d ago

Hilarious. It's funny how what he said can be twisted so badly. I watched the Episode of The Bonus Round where he said it will fail and he actually said the successor to the Wii will not be as successful.He never said it will fail!Big difference between not as successful to fail. Oh but the fanboys will eat this up.

deadreckoning6663794d ago (Edited 3794d ago )

I saw it too and he in fact DIDN'T say the word fail. But hey, whatever boosts a fanboy's confidence...

Shok3794d ago (Edited 3794d ago )

Yea, I watched it too and the world fail and not even a synonym for it came out of his mouth.

I dislike Patcher as much as the next guy, but his words are indeed being twisted right here.

All he said was that the Wii 2 wouldn't be as big or successful as the Wii.

just_looken3794d ago

the wii should have already failed sd game machine that cant play dvd's and majority of its top games are remakes. wii 2 i hope it does fail but it will probably sell millions

ChickeyCantor3794d ago

You couldn't give a rats ass about DVD playback.

Stealth20k3794d ago

And the sky is blue and patcher makes another prediction

k-dillinger3794d ago

c'mon guys we can say honestly that you know the wii 2 won't be as successful as the 1st was no way but any idiot can see that and the 3ds wont be big as big as the ds was i dont see it but doesnt mean they will fail. the problem with ninty is they now must live on gimmicks and sadly for them not every gimmick gonna succeed period.
