Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Pachter: Switch on track to sell only 8 million systems this Fiscal Year

https://nintendosoup.com/michael-pachter-believes-nintendo-switch-will-fail-to-sell-20-million-units-this-fiscal-year/

For reference, Nintendo aims to sell 20 million this FY, and last FY they sold 15 million.

And this guy actually gets paid for his predictions.

That is an interesting one for sure.

Now, if you switch "Switch" for "Wii U", he might have a point, but, well... wow. At this point he's basically become a meme with how... let's say interesting, his predictions are, lol.



So, Michael Pachter thinks the Switch will fall off the cliff? :P



Why he having big influence in game media ?

I mean its certainly possible they miss the 20 million forcast but worst case should be around last years numbers.

For a professional he surely doesnt know anything.

Pachter has been right with MOST o his predictions for the past 10 years I've followed him. Sure, he's not right 100% of the time, but he's usually accurate, so this seems likely.



Title needs to be updated as he only mentions that the Switch is tracking towards only shipping 8 mil this fiscal year, which is basically just saying that the first quarter was awful, which it was. Nintendo needs stronger quarters than that if it hopes to come even close to shipping 20 million this fiscal year.

Quickrick is Pachter confirmed and this guy ^ his sidekick.
