I'm a guy with an opinion, Pachter is a highly paid industry analyst. You would have thought that with his track record he would have been fired by now.
Thats exactly the misconception i'm trying to get rid of. Pachter is a STOCK analyst. he is paid to predict and advise investment comapnies into what video game company stocks to invest in. He is not paid to send emails to internet blogs and im pretty sure he isn't paid to appear on game trailers either. As you said, you are a guy with an opinion, so is Pachter and so am I. he doesnt have any more knowledge about the VS than we do so we can take his prediction for what it is, the thoughts of a guy who knows a lot about the industry. but then so do a lot of forum goers. We need to get rid of the whole 'why are people paying him to say stuff that I already know' because they arn't and 'pachter is a HD fanboy/wii troll' because he isn't
As an intelligent and knowledgeable guy I can respect his opinion without having to agree with him. I believe that whilst it does look kinda weird judgement is best reserved until we see compatible software. I think the claims of some people VS will automatically push hardware because 'its from nintendo' are just as stupid as dismissing the device out of hand
nintendo fanboy, but the good kind
