    So yeah, Michael Pachter, everybody knows who he is. If you don't, he hates Nintendo. And by that, I mean he excludes facts to make them look bad. Even when they're successful, Pachter says they're in trouble. He's basically the leader of the Nintendo Hate Wagon.


    Anyways, his prediction was that the WiiU sold only about 80k in February. Which, let's be honest, isn't that surprising because besides a few eShop games (Bit Trip Runner 2 <3), there were no games released at all. Legends speak of a platforming game that was supposed to come out, but who knows if that was true or not.

    I do wonder if he's ever tired of being wrong about stuff. And for those of you who don't know, he's wrong more often than he is right.

    The world that never was
    80k for a console that just launched a few months ago with near to no games is bad considered to two consoles that launched years ago with a huge games catalog behind? Pachter logic for the win!

    Michael Pachter isn't Nintendo hater, he is a video game industry hater. He loves only mobile gaming, wich means that he loves only crap games.

    Look all the shity he has on mind:
    “Zynga is broadening the appeal of their games by including more genres (bubble shooter, puzzle games, word games, drawing games, Sims knock-off) and somehow people think that isn’t innovative enough." (Forbes)

    ...but he was right this time around - the WiiU did sell poorly and a price cut would help (however games would be better).

    That's fucking hilarious, but honestly, I wouldn't doubt android devices surpassing WiiU specs over it's lifetime.

    I would. Mobile GPU's aren't all that strong - the ones we're using today match those we've seen in the Dreamcast/PS2, maybe slightly surpass them but that's that.
