Everyone’s favourite industry analyst Michael Pachter has told Electronic Gaming Monthly that Nintendo “just doesn’t get it with Wii U.” Pachter says that while Nintendo struck it lucky with Wii U, he has his reservations about whether they will repeat the console’s success with Wii U. He ended off his tirade by stating that he personally doesn’t think the Wii U looks all that great.
“Nintendo is partying like it’s 1985. Their strategy is ‘We got lucky with the Wii, so if we just try something different, we’ll get lucky again. In their vocabulary, the word ‘lucky’ doesn’t exist-substitute ‘brilliant.’ Unfortunately I don’t think it [the Wii U] looks brilliant.”
