    I don't think this thread is going to be of good nature.

    He sounds really biased against Nintendo.
    But whatever.

    I think Nintendo, with its 100+ years experience and 25+ Billion in market cap, knows more about its future than Michael Pachter.

    The only part of his lunatic comments that i can somewhat agree with is the statement that Nintendo have driven their market into the casual gaming sector in a massive way, which may be a problem in retaining core followers. The number of times i've seen families where the kids all have DS's/3DS's and play them as they wander around.....it's a cheap babysitting tech and it's not necessarily the market that Nintendo should be focusing on.....although it's solely theirs as the smart phone market and Sony's market aren't really appropriate for under 10's which makes it a nice cash cow.

    If you look at all of Patcher's predictions over the years and then compare them to what actually happened you would wonder how this guy still has a job as an analyst.

    That statement alone shows that he knows nothing.

    If this guy is predicting it, bet money that the exact opposite is going to happen. So Nintendo is going to hit it big with the Wii-U.

    Not that I doubted it, the Wii-U has all the right check marks this time around for it to do well. I knew the Wii was going to do really well but to be honest I had the market figured for more of a 3 way tie then what actually happened.

    So, the Wii U will be a huge success.

    Pachter is full of shit, has always been full of shit, and always will be full of shit.
    He's probably one of the biggest trolls in the gaming industry, other than EA.

    I think the question we all have now is...

    Who is worried about predictions that Pachter has said that were "positive", given the opposite of what he says seems to happen?

    He's absolutely correct. Another viable source, my Magic 8 Ball, has confirmed this. Although it did want me to "Ask Again Later" a few times.

    Magic 8 Ball: "Ask again later."
    Magic 8 Ball: "Ask again later."
    Magic 8 Ball: "Ask again later."
    Magic 8 Ball: "Oh for Pete's sake! I said later."
    Magic 8 Ball: "Screw it! Signs point to yes! Now, leave me in peace!"

    Seriously though? 4GB? Fuck that shit. Game consoles TODAY should come with at least 160 GB of interal storage or GTFO. I hate how Nintendo makes us buy "External Storage". Wii U will come with Internal Storage of that capacity or they can just fucking go bankrupt.

    That isn't going to be the price...
    The Blue Ocean thing already happen, unless... oh snap!

    Seriously tho, If you are talking about that, it more of a statement then a prediction.

    Yep, I almost think he try to have the reverse thing happen on purpose.

    I seen this and hoped it wouldn't come to gbatemp. I was disappointed...

    Over internal storage? Well touchy...
