    That means that Nintendo will be fine, going by everything that this guys turns out being the contrary.

    Pachattack ya'll, but seriously I agree with his analysis. Nintendo has to compete with the mobile market, if they didn't have their first party exclusives and the DS series be the success it is they'd be in worse shape I reckon.

    i still kind of find it pointless. His viewpoint is moot because hes saying that basically all gaming is dipping in sales because of smart phones and tablets. Does not matter if its nintendo or sony or MS...that are all, according to him, not going to make as much.

    so really he said almost nothing...

    By now I've learned to take everything Patcher says, and store the opposite in my head for future reference.

    well he said “I'm paid to advise investors, and none have made a profit owning Nintendo stock. I don't think that many will make a profit over the next few years, because I don't think Nintendo's strategy will return them to profitability.”

    Yeah big deal, it's the same guy that said the Wii was a fad and it could lost momentum in the second year, it turns out to be the longest fad in video-game history.

    Michael Pachter is a douchebag. Everything that comes out of his mouth is pure shit. Litterally, there is shit coming out of his mouth every time he talks.

    so hes saying to not invest in the one company that actually took a big leap up in hardware sales last gen? the DS and wii being (correct me if im wrong) the 2 highest selling consoles of all time...that tells me he might have been a terrible adviser. Nintendos inhouse games still sell like crack, some games more then ever, and apprently the 3DS is starting to sell faster then the DS.

    i just dont see why hes saying that. But this is coming from an old guy who only likely plays angery birds on his iphone.
