Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Michael Pachter: "Switch is tracking to sell 13 million this year"

"Switch sales under 20 million: A+, tracking to 13 million this year"

I mean, how can he congratulate himself with an A+ after saying that the Switch was tracking to sell 8 millions this year, and then saying "oh it will sell 13 millions" ?

I've seen him make bad predictions before but this one takes it a whole new level.  And he gives himself and A+ for this prediction too.

I bet he hates to do it.

I'm sorry, really sorry.. but.. This guy feels he can say these things as a professional, and still be taken seriously every time because he probably has deals..

We have to do something people, this has gone way too far. He's basically just trolling...

It's a sign of how poor games journalism is. Even a site targeting developers and industry professionals over fans and hobbyists doesn't call out Pachter's bullshit or his terrible track record. Instead of just repeating these self-assessed predictions, GamesIndustry should do some independent verification. Whichever way you look at it, Pachter's wrong on this and he's wrong on the Elder Scrolls 6, too. It's absolutely laughable that this stuff is printed by a professional website without comment or challenge.



This is too far even for Switch haters

Well i will make up my own predictions based on nothing but an uncorrelated statement.

By end of 2019 Switch will be at 42million units sold as 42 is the meaning of life. Must reach this exact number no more or no less or the world is doomed to end and there be no 2020.



 

 

There is a simple process to interpreting Pachter's forecasts:

Step 1: Ignore Michael Pachter.

18 Million. Now let's see who is a better analyst, the guy pulling numbers out of his ass or the guy who gets paid to make predictions

The answer might surprise you!



"Sony skipping E3 2019 is bad"
"Switch will sell just 13 million units in its 3rd year"

Nintendo and Sony are in for a hell of great year then!



                                                                                                             

Switch will actually be at 50 million by the end of 2019.
