Will the Wii-U sink Nintendo?

1 min read


I’m a fan of the Wii-U, I desperately want one but right now my finances can’t stretch to get one, but it looks like I may be in the minority on this one and some people even believe the Wii-U could spell the end for Nintendo.

Michael Pachter is famous in the gaming industry for publicly stating his predictions for the future of gaming but there is a reason behind that. Michael Pachter works for Wedbush Securities and his job is to predict the financial future of companies and often video game companies.

His latest prediction is posted by Gamesbeat

“I think they misfired on the Wii U,It’s just not that different from the other two [existing] consoles, and the gameplay isn’t as unique as the Wii. They made a mistake, it’s something they probably can’t recover from.”

That’s quite the claim from the longest standing videogame company still in the hardware race but then again Michael has never liked the Wii-U with him already stating that he expects it to fail

Here, Here and even here

So do you think Michael is right and the Wii-U will sink Nintendo or does he just not get the direction that Nintendo is taking with this new console?
