Michael Pachter, the widely known video game analyst from Wedbush Securities, post a weekly videoblog called Pach-Attack, where he answers questions from viewers. This time, he takes on a few questions about the Nintendo Wii U. Specifically, Pachter comments on why Nintendo seems to be holding back on the Wii U system specs, to which Pachter’s answer is probably accurate: Nintendo isn’t sure about the final specs of the console, but things like CPU, RAM etc. are finalized because developers need those specs in order to start working on games. Another subject Pachter touches on the launch date of the Wii U, which he believes will be sooner than we think. Pachter think that Nintendo will launch the Wii U in late October. This is contrary to previous reports of a late-November release date.
