Once again, game analyst Michael Pachter is predicting the demise of Nintendo and its Wii U console.
Nintendo will ship 3 million Wii U consoles by Christmas 2012, and they'll all sell out, according to game analyst.
Nintendo expects to sell 5.5 million Wii U consoles by March 2013, but analyst Michael Pachter believes this is unrealistic.
The flip-flopping continues: this week, analyst Michael Pachter doesn't like the Wii U, apparently.
Analyst Michael Pachter believes Nintendo will manufacture 3.6 million Wii Us in 2012, and up to 1.5 million will go to the US.
Pachter is impressed by Nintendo for securing Bayonetta 2 as a Wii U exclusive.
He believes Nintendo will limit Wii U manufacturing to 12 to 15 million units in the first year.
Wii U will sell 10 million in the first 14 months, which will be half of what the original Wii sold.
Pachter believes Nintendo will make 1 million Wii U consoles per month, and they'll all sell out into 2013.
Wii U needs to be $300 to be profitable, and $200 in order to sell well to the mainstream crowd, says analyst.
"Nintendo is partying like it's 1985", says Pachter in his latest anti Wii U tirade.
New rumor suggests a Wii U launch date on October 25.
Claims Nintendo fanboys will "buy any box that says Nintendo on it"
If Nintendo charges $50 for Wii U games, it would signal that it's of lesser quality compared to other consoles.
"Nintendo gives no information, and want us all to proclaim that their consoles will sell record numbers.", says Pachter.
In order to get Call of Duty on the Wii U, Activision might have forced Nintendo to release the Wii U Pro Controller.
Nintendo got lucky with the Wii, says Michael Pachter, and that won't happen with the Wii U.
