Michael Pachter probably knew cardboard would eventually be a thing.. but Labo isn't a box of cardboard... it's way more complex than that. But keep being narrowminded, humanity has been that way for the longest time, so I really don't care..
I guess this Pachter stuff flew way above your head.
People give him shit for lot of things, especially for wild mispredictions and alegged Nintendo hate (though in reality he loves Nintendo games), so it was hilarious when someone dug up his statement (I saw it first on EG) about cardboard box with Nintendo logo on it as his "good" prediction.
It actually has nothing to do with quality of Labo as a product.
mmm... i'm not so sure...
i can already feel the astroturf writting the names they're gonna call this..
you think "waggle" originated from gamers, and that it was grassroots? ..think again... Labo is gonna be called something, and if it were legitimately from the audience, it would have happened already. there's gonna be a really detracting name for this, and it's gonna come from viral marketing dollars...
fortunately or not, people are gonna eat it up..this is the kind of thing people will love to hate.. but the public is actually too stupid to come up with a campaign themselves..
just wait a little bit more, you'll see..
