Pachter disputes superior Xbox exclusives claim

1 min read


Video game industry analyst Michael Pachter  has disagreed with Microsoft’s recent claim that because of its first party output, it has the best exclusives. Instead, he argues that the house of Mario, Nintendo’s first-party titles are "vastly superior.”

"Dennis is a great guy, and is paid to be loyal to his Microsoft family” he said to Industry Gamers. “ I think Nintendo’s first-party content is vastly superior to either other console manufacturer’s, and don’t think that either Sony or Microsoft would really dispute that."
"As far as who is better,” he surmised “Sony or Microsoft, I’m not sure why anyone cares about my opinion. I have all three consoles, and love Sony first party titles like God of War, Gran Turismo, Uncharted, Little Big Planet and the upcoming Twisted Metal, and I love Microsoft first party titles like Halo, Forza, Fable, Alan Wake and Gears.”

"I’m sure that there is a scientific way to determine who is better, but that’s like arguing about whether Ford is better than GM or whether Wal-Mart is better than Target. They’re both good, and people have different tastes."

This comes in response to Microsoft CFO Dennis Durkin who claimed that “I think our first party performance in terms of quality bars and units per title this shift has been superior to our competition’s."

For once, I actually agree with Michael Pachter.
