Famed Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter believes that despite the negativity surrounding the Wii U launch, the console will continue to sell out till March. That means Nintendo will shift 5.5 million units by the end of the first quarter of 2013, which is inline with Nintendo’s forecast.
“Negativity overall will never go away so I expect the negativity to continue through the holidays. I don’t think this has much impact on the launch and continue to expect launch quantities to be sold out, and reorders to remain sold out through March. The company probably will ship 3 million by Christmas, and all will be sold out.”
