Pachter Says Wii U Is Just An Xbox 360 With A Tablet Controller And Not Next-Gen

Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter is firmly under the impression that Wii U isn’t a next generation console which leads him to boldly claim that Microsoft and Sony shouldn’t be worried about the console. Pachter describes the Wii U as an Xbox 360 with a tablet controller that “is likely going to come out at a higher price point than the 360 at the time.”

“…And again, I take a lot of shit for this: their next gen system is a current gen system… But people who go, ‘well what are Microsoft and Sony going to do to catch up with Nintendo?’, they don’t care. Microsoft especially is not afraid of the Wii U. They look at the Wii U as an Xbox 360 with a tablet controller and is gonna likely come out at a higher price point than the 360 at the time.”

“[Wii U has] complicated game design for developers, who can’t figure out if the Wii U will ultimately support only one or multiple controllers.”

“Nintendo is all but assured of limited third party launch support”.

    2. *Ehm* as stated by the people who put dark siders on the WIIu (can’t remember their name) they said that developing for the WIIu was as easy as the Xbox 360, this was posted on this very website sometime ago (maybe a month or 2)

        Anyway, they said that they got the game up and running on the Wii U in about 5 weeks. They got the game on the tablet controller with two lines of code and that was it.

        @No,
        “As easy as the Xbox 360″ means equally easy. Meaning development ease for Wii U is equal to development ease for the 360.

        Very much the same.

      Like

      1. I have researched the potential power of the Wii U. The CPU alone would run circles around the PS3s.
        IBM has a paragraph on their website that vaguely details the memory technology in the Wii U CPU. They say that this technology allows the CPU to have up to 3x the embedded memory without making the chip larger, or something like that. (can’t source it as i’m on my 3ds.)

        I can’t really guess on the GPU side of things though. I know it’s a custom AMD chip that is based on the R700 (HD4000 series) chip.
        (I personally believe that the graphics chip is modified to have features from the R800 (HD5000 series) chips.

        If one were to combine the powers of the PS3,360, and Wii, that would be the power level of the Wii U.

  18. LONG MESSAGE

    Sickr, are you just doing this to watch the hate flow? I really want to know.

    And Mr. Pachter, I’d like to take a minute to address you directly. Yes. I am calling you out. I’d just like to ask you a simple question. Just a simple harmless question. What exactly does the phrase “next gen” mean to you? No. I am not asking this as a Nintendo Fan. I’m asking this as a gamer. A person who plays video games. Does “next gen” mean better graphics? Advanced processors? Power, power, power? Because if that’s what it means to you, than I will not try in vain to explain why I think you’re wrong. But what I WILL do is explain my thoughts on the phrase, “next gen.” Next gen, for me, means opening up a whole new world of “POSSIBILITIES.” That is the key word here. Yes, advanced hardware is indeed one way to do that. So why must you hate Nintendo for wanting to be different? And don’t say you don’t. The only reason people would ever hate Nintendo now is because they pulled back on hardware with the Wii. You saying Wii U is not a next generation console, is undeniable proof that you are indeed biased against Nintendo.

    Also Mr. Pachter, you are not a video game designer. Please do not speak for them. Have they told you that game design has been complicated? Because to my knowledge, every developer who received a Wii U Dev kit would have Nintendo’s council on how to develop on it. And also, dev’s have also commented that the console is very easy to work with. 3rd party publishers will develop on this console, as there is no reason not to. The unfortunate lack of 3rd party support on wii, I can see 4 possible reasons for it. 1, no one wanted to develop a game on Ps3 or 360 and tone it down for Wii. 2nd, No one was interested in motion controls enough to make a wii original. (Perhaps the same reason the Playstation move hasn’t caught on yet) 3rd, Wii is generally considered to be a “casual console.” I guess having more violent games on it would not have great reception. And 4th, Nintendo would use the console to release their own games.

    If nintendo thought like it’s competitors, Video games would be boring, and they would all be the same. Just blood, guns, and shooting. Nintendo chose to be different. If you don’t like it Mr. Pachter, that is absolutely fine, but do not pass you’re opinion off as a fact.

Sony and Microsoft already did their job providing a console that can stand still in the market without a real need of new hardware. Now its up to Nintendo to show they can also do that.

  24. If you watched CES they had a lot of pachter talks and he actually seems like a pretty chill guy. But what he said. I agree. The specs are BARELY above what the 360 and ps3 use. So it essentially is a 360 with a tablet controller. Hardware wise. The key change here is the software and Nintendo has that. But as I said in the last pachter post, he’s right about the 1 or 2 controller talks. Developers won’t make multiplayer games unless they know how many damn people can play it.

    And as he said higher price than the 360. If its over 300$ it’s a rip off. I mean Nintendo builds cheap consoles but sells them at a high price.

    And don’t say “well the wii was cheapest of the 3″ well it also cost 50-60 dollars to make, and sold it for 250. That’s almost a 400% gain. Vs Sony and MS that sold their consoles at cost. Hell Sony up until last year, lost money on every ps3 sold.

    Like

    1. Is a company evil for selling at a profit? And also they didnt make that much. A lot of what was made went towards advertisement and development. But Nintendo was smart about it. They made a price point that was made more appealing compared to Xbox 360′s at the time price of $450 or $500 and PS3′s $600.
      But also if you look around, people are satisfied with the level of power that their consoles have. Only PC gamers are upset. Graphics aren’t going to get much better right now. Releasing a new console from Sony or Microsoft wont have the graphical leap that most people will justify a purchase for. Their Systems do everything they need to and most seem pretty happy with it.
      Nintendo on the other hand could use the jump. People who have picked up gaming from the Wii have moved onto the PS3 or 360. Nintendo is using Hardware thats a few years old. So what? Its still better than MS and Sony’s. And probably will end up being like the PS2 where it was decent for the generation, but not the best.
      Nintendo waits for prices on hardware parts to lower so they can continue to innovate and be easier on wallets. Whats wrong with that? So what if they make a profit. Taking a loss on each system would suck, but you’re viewed as a good guy for doing it? No. They’re doing it, because no one would buy it otherwise. Making a profit allows for bigger risks and a stronger business.

      I seriously dont understand why making a profit makes you the bad guy. I bet you if Sony and MS could, they would bump up those prices as well.

  40. This Pachter guy is a fucking idiot. Yeah, an Xbox 360. Just with a revolutionary, innovative tablet controller. Does anybody listen, or even care about Pachter’s bullshit “predictions”.

  41. Screw you Pachter! You seriously need to stop being IGNORANT!

    360 Is a Microsocks console and is bad because of endless reasons.

    Wii U is next gen as it has better graphics and a tablet.

    One more thing!: THANK YOU IGN FOR MAKING ME REMEMBER HOW TO SPELL IGNorant!!!

  45. Pachter’s full of shit and sickr you stop posting the words that come out of his ass he doesn’t know what he’s talking about. it is absolutely not an xbox with a tab controller. first of all, according to all my sources, it’s graphics are in fact slightly better than those of the xbox, secondly, xbox has no standard cam or gyro and xbox will NEVER have mario metroid or the sheer perfection that is The Legend of Zelda. Everybody claims that Nintendo sucks, based mostly on graphics and memory capacity, but they need to remember that Nintendo was the first to make a decent home console and Sony and Microsoft are wannabes. especially Sony. They will never attain Nintendo’s epicness. Also, theree wouldn’t “limited third party support” if third parties would GET THEIR DAMN ACTS TOGETHER AND START WORKING WITH THE FUCKIN HARDWARE CAPAPBILITIES. the past has shown that only nintendo and second party developers can actually make good use of Nintendo hardware innovations. Third parties should just plan for single play.

  46. Not that i think the wiiu wont support multiplayer that would be unthinkable but come in devers role with the fuckin punches if it looks like no multiplayer support make single player fuckin games and sorry bout the inaccuracy in last post (namely “slightly better than 360) but seriously third party devers make a few half-ass attampts to dev games for innovative nintendo system and just either ignore innovative features or use them as pure gimmicks then nintendo steps in and shows em how its fuckin done with a game such as super mario galxy or skyward sword or phantom hourglass or metroid prime 3 corruption. and ever notice how nintendo was actually first to make online multiplayer and microsof and sony jus built on it and acted like they were all that? and did the same thing with motion control, and, hey, HOME CONSOLES PERIOD? nintendo started with nes then other companies copied, copied, and copied more. sony only innovated games with discs (barely an innovation) and microsoft innovated absolutely dick.

    This guy call himself a analyst, he doesn’t even know something about hardware, what an idiot, I thinking he’s trying to take some attention, he only speak nonsense things.
    He hates Nintendo from the bottom of his heart.
