Forums - Gaming Discussion - Pacther: MS to pay Sony $150-$250million in royalty for Blu-Ray. Says he is right 70-80% of the time

Someone tell me how to embed this.

Some real goodies here

He thinks it's $2-$3 per Blu-Ray drive

He also thinks DriveClub will be free with PS Plus because Sony think it won't sell much (hello?? Motorstorm?). He fails to mention that the game is actually not the full version.

And: "My predictions aren't really predictions because I don't give a damn"

And: "The clients want answers now. They want to talk to me, because I'm the man."

Doesn't really matter if Xbone is going to flop.

why do people listen to this man?

Pachter is awesome. I'm seriously glad he's around just for the way people get so puffed up over him.

I'm a fan.

Well the man is a prophet. I mean sure he doesn't get his predictions right most of the time or really any of the time, but he'll eventually!

You seem pretty sure!

They are one of the owners of the format.

According to a new study; YouTube,, NeoGaf, N4G, VGChartz, IGN, GameSpot, GameStop, Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, All of Europe, FAMITSU, Japan, the rest of Asia and The whole of the Middle East among countless others are experiencing a Tsunami of people in love with Sony's gamings offerings.

Pachter is the man.

You missed how 70-80% of his predictions are correct - and honestly, in the big picture of things, I have no reason to doubt he's telling the truth - seeing what money he's making and for how long he's been doing that job, I'd say his clients are more than happy with him.

He is right, he is the man.

And as usual, this moron is completely wrong when it comes to numbers. It's not like you can actually look up the blu-ray royalty rates on the intenet. Oh no, wait......... (It's actually $1.25 for a pc with installed bd software, and XBox One is certainly registeres as such, and the consortium is about 15 companies, so Sony gets around 10c)

stealh edit: forgot the drive. So it's actually around 50c for Sony
