I still don't get why Pach was so adamant about Nintendo releasing a "Wii HD".. why? What would the purpose have been? To play games that are already visually barebones like the Wii (insert theme here) games, and to split the userbase between HD and non-HD games? Like say Wii HD came out by 2010 as he predicted.. .so games like Galaxy 2 and DKC Returns would have ONLY been for the Wii HD and not for the millions of people who owned just a plain vanilla Wii? That's ridiculous!
Pachter is on the payroll of several major Western third parties. A Wii HD (originally predicted to release in 2008) would have enabled third parties to port their games with little effort, because they were unwilling to adapt to the market.
When Sony was bleeding money like mad with the PS3, Pachter's advice for them was to cut the price even further. This wouldn't have done Sony any good, but third parties would have had a bigger addressable market.
