So non withstanding Patcher comments, there are actually people on this site that think that WiiU can recover and reach something like 50 million units sold lifetime ?



look at PS3, Good system Did terrible in its first 3 months while Wii was killing it! Did it look like PS3 could recover? For most people no, but like i say, you cant judge intill its at full capacity! Anybody with a brain can see Nintendo is doing bad cuz of no software and PS3+X360 have much cheaper price tag/bundles and over a 7 year game library! Michael Pachter is retarded and is only used for comedy and to piss off Nintendo gamers!

Sony and Microsoft command a more stable portion of the gaming audience than Nintendo. Microsoft cut off a share of Sony's marketshare during the PS2 era and they now collectively sit at over 140 M plus and will reach the 150 M (Sony's PS2 sales) before the next consoles launch. After Sony broke down Nintendo's fanbase when they went with the third parties they've consecutively ran off with a little over 30-35 M+ per gen. If some new gamers stick after the Wii gen, which most definitely wont with the Wii U's current structure we're looking at a 10 M console hike for Nintendo overall (being generous) for Nintendo if they cannot hook casuals majorly. They forgot exactly what made the Wii so special and its that they gave casuals something they had never seen before and made gaming accessible for casuals who don't really like a major challenge that demands major learning.



it does suck for nintendo, Since millions of users were casually, but still waaaaay to early to determine anything imo. Wii started with Wii Sports, maybe Wii U can do the same no? Bowling on the wii u with Wiimotes and the gamepad for personal info like a real sport? Nintendo can do many things but as of now intill at least July/August nothing appears tobe good for wii u except pikmin 3 but thats just for that audience(which is large,but not really). At least 3DS will have the best year, nothing will come close to half of wat its gonna get!

Its not dead, it just wont have the same effect as the Wii on the casual market. Microsoft will take more of that crowd with the Kinect 2 and legitmately take over the living room with casuals. Nintendo tried the tablet gimmick, when casuals already have tablets. Wrong move.

There is a common misconception that somehow the PS3 did terribly its first three months. While it's true that the Wii completely dominated global sales, and the PS3 wasn't doing so hot, there was a reason for that: accessability, aka it hadn't come out in Europe. When it did, it sold more than half a million its first week, and went on to match the Xbox 360

The cases aren't even remotely similar. The Wii U hit the biggest three markets within a few weeks, but the PS3 took almost 4 months to cross the Atlantic. If anything, it makes the Wii U look more shaky; it's not even able to beat the PS3 globally even when the PS3 wasn't being sold in its biggest market.



I believe in honesty, civility, generosity, practicality, and impartiality.

How??? Is a car dead cuz it didn't get its engine installed yet? You cant judge, just like vita. Its doing bad now, but it can make ahuge turn around if done right! Dont sell Wii U short, especially since only one major game came out.

I don't know honestly. The short term seems to indicate it will reach Gamecube levels; however, regardless of one's personal perception of Nintendo, the Mario Kart, 3D Mario, Super Smash, Zelda and Pokemon franchises are much more popular and have reached a larger audience compared to the Gamecube era. Consequently, I believe Wii U will eclipse 50 million, however not by much.

The market has changed since 2005 and sadly Nintendo is still living like it was in 2005. Nonetheless, I believe Wii U's strongest market will be Japan, much like we are seing with the 3DS. Nintendo foothold is incredibly strong this generation and will most likely be the system of choice for many Japanese publishers. I see the Wii U reaching over 10 million in Japan - bold I know.

Nintendo's weakest market is the U.S. hands down (Nintendo actually sells very well in Canada). I don't see that changing anytime soon. Microsoft erupted into this powerhouse with the Xbox 360. I see Sony and Nintendo both underperforming in the US going forward and Microsoft being the platform of choice.

Hence, they have an uphill battle to climb and will they be successful? I don't know; however, as many have said, never bet against Nintendo.



I used to not like Sessler, then I started watching his videos.

I used to not like Pachter, then he was on some of Geoff's videos.


I like Michael Pachter. Most people don't like him because sadly they are fanboys. "Oh no Pachter thinks Nintendo/Sony/Microsoft are in trouble. He's such a troll since I love Nintendo/Sony/Microsoft." Heck I remember when he said a few bad things about Vita and my initial reaction was "who the duck does this guy think he is? Vita is a console from God almighty!" Don't succumb to your initial reactions guys.

Pacther makes a valid point about the current market forces Nintendo is facing. Mobile phones and ultra books and tablets are eating up there market share, denying it and calling pacther a troll is silly, he's a paid analyst not a fan boy.

Pachter gets paid a decent coin to provide a clue to current state of things to those without clues but who have money.  He knows industry stuff.  BUT, on the prediction front, he is pretty poor.  If he got paid for his predictions, he would of been let go a long time agon.

As far as market forces go, do people see Microsoft and Sony are more immune than Nintendo is?  Of course, I doubt Pachter could start talking about this, because his prediction would be: Videogame industry is DOOMED, move your money elsewhere, and he would be out of work.
