Famed Wedbush Morgan industry analyst Michael Pachter believes that Nintendo are a few years late in everything they decide to do. Speaking during his Pach Attack show Pachter said that the Wii U was released three years too late, and is simply an HD version of the original Wii console. He then went on to say that the eShop is seven or eight years too late, and online multiplayer for Nintendo is seven or eight years too late. Here’s what he had to say.
“I just think Nintendo’s a few years late. So, the Wii U is the Wii HD, it’s coming three years too late. The Wii Mini was a great idea back in 2008/2009, they probably should have brought it out then – they’re way too late.”
“Poor Nintendo, I think they try way too hard to get things right and it takes a long time. “The eShop is seven or eight years too late, online multiplayer for Nintendo is seven or eight years too late.”
“Nintendo has got great ideas, it’s just that they’re great ideas from the last decade. The Wii Mini is one of them.”
