Michael Pachter predicts Duke Nukem Forever sales to disappoint | Warp Zoned

Warp Zoned writes:

"Industry analyst Michael Pachter is shoring up his sales prediction for the highly anticipated Duke Nukem Forever, and it’s not good. Originally expected to sell roughly three million copies in its first quarter, The Pach is now tempering that expectation to 1.5 million. While that would be a respectable number for most games, it’s seen as quite underwhelming for a series with such a legendary place in gaming, not to mention over a decade of hype. The lukewarm critical reception seems to be responsible for a lot of the game’s troubles."

"Hey everyone, the next Uncharted game and the next Gears of War game and the next Zelda game will all sell over 2 million units each, can I have a job?"

This guy gets way too much attention.

Maybe if this guy spent less time saying stupid shit and appearing on gametrailers like some hyper-value mascot then maybe he'd get the opportunity to actually play some games.

This is the guy who said RTS games are difficult to market to console players because they're turn based and mostly singleplayer experiences. It's like somebody asked some random stock broker or corporate analyst to analyse the games industry and after six months of playing on his daughter's wii he thinks hes ready to go.

He's either saying complete and utter bollocks or he's telling us that the next Halo will sell well and CoD is going to get a lot of attention.

Pachter is how you spell his name.

Although I doubt anybody cares ;P

Him being a fucking fool, is actually very good for rigid capitalist rulers,.. I think he is actually smart enough to realize that,.. or maybe he is retarded by default,.. Either way he a happy mofo,.. Sometimes being a stupid fuck, pays off in spades, even in relatively longer term in so corrupt capitalist systems we have,..

Guys this is so lame,..I have to beg.... but please someone give me bubbles because I really want to discus some topics sometimes,.. this bubble system is shit,..

Honestly, anyone could have guessed that. Why do we need his input again?
