Pachter: Zelda will help sell 10 million NX consoles “pretty quickly”


Game industry analyst Michael Pachter has been a vocal critic of Nintendo lately, especially the way the company is run by its management. But he’s certainly a fan of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

“I think everybody who buys an NX will absolutely buy it, and I think it will sell them 10 million consoles pretty quickly. Zelda looked great. I mean, it really looks like a good game.”
