Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Pachter Says “Why Would Anybody Buy A Wii U?”

Controversial Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter believes that Nintendo is currently in a world of trouble. Pachter cites the lack of third-party support for the company’s latest home console, coupled with the looming release of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, as a problem that Nintendo doesn’t seem able to fix. Pachter genuinelyquestions why anyone would choose to buy a Wii U at this point in time.

“The publishers are pretty excited to support the Xbox One and the PS4 – they really didn’t say anything about the Wii U. And we know EA has no games in development for Wii U. If Activision pulls support; if you see Ubisoft , you see Take-Two pull support, the Wii U is a Nintendo-only gaming device which is what they were back with the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1985. They’re not going to sell a lot of consoles if they don’t have games like FIFA and Battlefield and Call of Duty and Grand Theft Auto. Due to that, Pachter asks a simple rhetorical question: “Why would anybody buy a Wii U?”

Predictions for LT console sales:

PS4: 120M

XB1: 70M

WiiU: 14M

3DS: 60M

Vita: 13M

Because Zelda

because they like nintendo games?

'Video games are bad for you? That's what they said about rock-n-roll.'
-Shigeru Miyamoto

Roughly 75% of the game I want in the future are exclusive to either 3DS or WiiU.

That is why I own both. Every single game he listed as must have, are not on my list of games I want. I wouldn't even play them if someone gave them to me as a gift. I would return them and get different games.

The less time people spend talking about Pachter's opinion, the less time we have to spend listening to his nonsense. I wish everyone would ignore him so that he'd just become irrelevant already.

because the box has a Nintendo logo on it?

Patcher says a lot of things, but how cares?
