Pachter Claims Nintendo “Just Doesn’t Get It” With Wii U

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.”

Thanks, Fezzy

      1. I agree with him!
        I will buy Wii U day one, but I really doubt that it will reach the same audience that Wii did.
        I don´t see many casual gamers talking about it, and when they see they don´t care about, like it was with the Wii.

        I am a nintendo fanboy, but I am really worried about the future of wii u.

        1. Have faith, Savino. The future will be brighter with Wii U. The developers take time to make a great Wii U title no matter type of genre the game categorizes.

          “…Wii U game developers have been optimizing their games and getting more out of the hardware over the past few months. New software updates from Nintendo to the Wii U SKD, engine improvements, etc. have reportedly helped developers to increase the frame rate of their games. All while the visual quality of the games has improved as well. According to the source (rumors), developers now have a better grasp on the system and are able to get more out of it.”

        2. you agree with patcher ???? the man who stated the psp would outsell the DS 3:1 and the vita would crush the 3ds . and the 3ds would never exceed 8 million units in its entire life , which it reached 20M after 1 year ???

          the man knows nothing about gaming.
          the wiiu will 100% definately be bigger than the wii . why?? because the ‘wii’ branding is a household name now . the original wii came off the back of the low selling gamecube. the wiiu is coming off the back of the high sellin wii. guaranteed huge success.

Yeah mr patcher predictions have for the most part been wrongbut thats becuase heunderestimated the sheer stupidity of nintendos fanbase. To put things into perspective its like somebody predicting shamwow would fail because of how obvious it is of a scam just to be proven wrong becuase he forgot to factor just how braindead the american public is. Heck american are so fucking stupid that they get scam by nigerians heck sometimes three times lmfao thats why the poor little americunts need laws to protect them from themselves. Mr patcher just goes by logic reasoning on why some piece of shit would likely not fail but forgetting o factor in the sheer stupidity of the bible believing nation. Mr patcher is a classy and may i add very sexy lookng guy for his age.

        1. Yeah its not nintendo it mr patcher that doesnt get how gullible and stupid a fanbase can get. Point in case the wii theres no logical reason that it sold other than cheap gimmicks as one of the answer. The wii had all the making of a failue. It had a ratio of 20:5 annualy in the shovelware to good games chart and thats meager amount is mostly nintendo 1st party offerings. Next was basically a gimp up gamecube with crappy browser,low memory space and a shitty flash support i mean my god my iphone could log into almost any site that the wii struggled with. On the positives it was the cheapest netflix player available. Most of their 1st parties were an embarrassment to the company. It takes brass balls to relase crappy first party titles like kirby epic yarn,metriod other m,excitebike,mario party,mario 25 anniversary which ironically was free on the nes and a few otber considering that the majority of its revenoues depended on their first party offerings. Thus wii had no games, very weak third party support,horrendous browser among other things and unlike other companies it did everything wrong and succeed even flat out lying to their consomers. Where was earthbound that mr iwata promised at e3 2006, where where the support of third party hmmp and yet ya critize mr patcher for predicting based on where logic should apply wrong mr patcher in the world of video games things get bizzaro its a world where being cheap,outdated,treating consumers like tools, blaming lack of 3ds sales onthe consmers stupidity amd lying a good company makes how ridiculous but painfully true in the world of video game market.Stay amd rong mr patcher you have supporters

          1. Explain to me when Nintendo ever said that the 3ds launch was the buyers fault. They have said so many times that it didnt sell well in the beginig because of the crappy line up. Which is obviously not the case with the upcoming WiiU. I mean not only do they have great first party titles like Super Mario U and pikmin 3, but they also have great 3rd party games such as Assasins Creed and Batman. And also just because the new Earthbound never came out does not mean he lied. Games like that get canceled all the time, But also i just watched the whole E3 2006 nintendo and it doesnt ever mention a new Earthbound. Another thing, how does Nintendo treat consumers as tools. All of there items are a whole lot cheaper than either microsoft or sony, plus they dont charge for internet that you already have (microsoft). You should really think before you talk. Just sayin

  6. Nintendo got “lucky” with thr Wii? Thats says a lot about this analyst person. Nintendo made money, people had fun with the Wii, its time for something new. Whats so hard to understand about that?

    They are not trying to copy what Sony is doing. In fact, they kinda tried that with the Gamecube and that didnt go well at all, so now they trust their instincts much more than ever. Sony, on the other hand, keeps doing what Ninten-does, and makes it “cooler” for the older demographic that wants to feel less bad about still spending time and money on gaming. (Not that theres anything wrong with the PS3, I own one.)

    So lets just let everyone be, stop the flame wars, and go back to what this is supposed to be in the first place: A fun, harmless hobby.

  7. It’s incredible to call the Wii’s success “luck”. Nintendo always stated what was their rationale behind the console: to attract a bigger audience to gaming and they did it. Nobody believed in them, but they did it anyway and it pay off.

    Once again Nintendo has stated what they want: to bring asymmetric experiences to consoles. Again there are lots of non believers, but they are doing it anyway. They are not betting on “luck”, they are betting on a vision they have.

  8. I really don’t like to say this, but he could be right in some aspects. The Wii U probably won’t be able to get as successful as the Wii. The concept of it, the moving in front of the TV and the kind of interaction with the game was something new, that’s the reason why the Wii is so popular. The idea behind the Wii U isn’t bad at all (and something new aswell), and I’m really curious how people will react to it. I’m pretty sure the Wii U will be a success, but I don’t believe that this idea is enough to make the same success. Well, let’s see what will happen, they said the same about the Wii. :D

In all honest, basing on the stupid on the human race, im not expecting the WiiU to sell as well as the Wii did, or at least not in the same ratio, next gen may or may not selling more consoles overall like it normally does with each gen. We’ll probably have a xbox vs playstation proxy war, over who has the better graphics, because that pretty much all they can base an arguement on, and just like this gen, they’ll pick one or the other then buy the WiiU for the exclusives. Nintendo play its incredibly safe, either way its going to sell a ton, just based on exclusive first party games ect. I hope Microsoft bomb hard though, they dont care about gaming anyway, just the profit, and then Sony is still making dumb money draining decisions, like 4K -.-

  10. Nintendo’s only goal is to make a damned Entertainment system. That’s why their entire focus is on an innovative new controller, use of the Wii Remote, and an online social atmosphere. They’re not for the hardcore market, they don’t do things just for advertising, and they do prefer to stick with developers who make quality, entertaining games for their systems. This is also why they’re making a new controller already, because they decided they wanted to expand their horizons.
    I hope people in the industry grow to respect the Wii U and support with more games, but that’s up to them. If they want to take the cheap route and use pre-made gaming engines to dole out another mindless shooter, let them and keep it away from the real gaming console.

Just let the sales of the WiiU and the games show the truth for themselves instead of listening to ppl who can only speculate.

  20. If history has anything to do with it, Nintendo will repeat theirs like they always have. Staying one step behind everyone, they are lucking out in Japan and in general, mainly because children just don’t know any better and parents don’t care to either.

    I mean every child in my household owns Nintendo products, every ones one of my friends little brothers or sisters owns a Wii or other Nintendo products. I do not just make this up that literally their main buyers are children or parents buying for children.

    I am sorry but I honestly don’t have any faith in the Wii U, not when the only titles I hear anyone mention being worth buying the system for are a zombie game (jeez another one). Yes I have seen it and it honestly is nothing amazing, I know for a fact it is over hyped and people will end up bored with it just like mostly every zombie game that has been released.

    Regardless it seems the Wii U will suffer the same short fate the rest of it’s consoles have. Sure they may have had their short lived terms of great sales but realistically we all know they never lasted long. Wii U really doesn’t look to be any different, it literally is a Wii with a different controller and finally better graphics matching that of current gen consoles (which honestly should not be a selling point for anyone, the PS3 is six years old.)

    Sadly Nintendo’s main selling point for this new console has been “They are finally trying to accommodate all gamer’s, not just kids and grandmas. Sadly this can’t be true Nintendo consoles have always had very poor online experiences. So if this is anything like the last console it definitely will not appeal to hardcore gamer’s with common sense. If you noticed another huge selling point of the Wii U, is that you can finally play all those games you have already played on the Xbox360 and PS3 on the Wii U (again why would anyone with half a brain buy a console to play old games?)

    I just don’t believe it will be enough to make a huge impression, sure it will have a few good games but it won’t have enough just like every console/handheld they have made. Hell I have had a 3DS forever and I seriously cannot find any games to play on it that aren’t crap or kiddy games.

    Hopefully for the sake of those wasting their money to play on a system that finally has caught up to what gaming should be in this current age get the results they are looking for out of this release. In my opinion I think those who have such faith in this system to be upset in seeing how similar it will be to its failing counterpart the Wii (sales don’t mean squat when nothing but kids buy your products, the Wii truly sucked just like the Gamecube. Yea it had some great games but again way too few and not worth hanging onto the console for.)

    Good luck Nintendo, if anything was right about this retarded article you will for sure need it.

    1. How about YOU giving Nintendo a chance for just once, Michelle? It’s either you’re supporting that douchebag Michael Pachter (except the fact he’s buying the Wii U for Bayonetta 2), or you’re completely missing the entire freaking point? There’s a whole lot more about the Wii U than just shooting Zombis in the middle of the night. One of the main reasons I’m purchasing the Wii U is because of the games that was once on current generation consoles. Most of the Sony drones call the games “ports”, but I don’t give a shit about it. You don’t know a single fact that the Wii U is just like any other Nintendo systems from the past and present always have– quality. You have youth, I have experience.

      Furthermore, the Wii U won’t suffer the “same short fate the rest of it’s consoles have”. You should know the fact that the pre-orders have been completely sold out in less than 48 hours after the September 13th announcement of the prices ($299.99 for the Basic Set and $349.99 for the Deluxe Set and a 10% discount on downloadable games at the eShop). And according to Nintendo vice-president Scott Moffit, he had stated “certainly manufacturing enough units to meet consumer demand is one challenge”, but he added that Nintendo’s job was to make sure that fans and gamers see a value in the Wii U. Nintendo previously assured gamers that the “Wii U supply chain was solid”. Don’t deny it, girl. There will be more shipments of Wii U consoles and bundle sets to come in a matter of weeks.

      “Sadly this can’t be true Nintendo consoles have always had very poor online experiences.” That was on both the original Wii and Nintendo DS. Stop living in the past and think about the future. You should know the fact there is an invention called the Nintendo Network. And in that invention, the online structure will be better than Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. According to the president of Nintendo of Japan Satoru Iwata, “Unlike Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, which has been focused upon specific functionalities and concepts, we are aiming to establish a platform where various services available through the network for our consumers shall be connected via Nintendo Network service so that the company can make comprehensive proposals to consumers.” Nintendo’s plans include personal accounts for Wii U, digitally distributed packaged software, and paid downloadable content. (Source of data: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nintendo_Network ) Your comment is invalid and useless. “If you noticed another huge selling point of the Wii U, is that you can finally play all those games you have already played on the Xbox360 and PS3 on the Wii U (again why would anyone with half a brain buy a console to play old games?)” You are so prejudice. You should know better than that. Third party publishers make games not only on Sony and Micosoft consoles… but also the Wii U. There is a place for gamers to play third party games for multiple platforms. Even independent developers have been given more support to Nintendo’s new system than they had in the past with Wii. There’s a strong possibility to see indie titles on Wii U powered by Unity 4 Engine.

      In conclusion, you should think about the future. Nintendo wants to create a video game console that aims for casuals, hardcore, fitness buffs, TV couch potatoes, and passionate gamers no matter what age, race, or gender. I’m glad they’ve created the Wii U because it can do many things their original counterpart lacks. Even when the economy is already messed up, the Wii U is an affordable system. “Nintendo already has a certified hit on its hands”. – Forbes Magazine
