Controversial Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter says if the Wii U continues to be neglected by third party publishers and developers by the holiday season then ‘stick a fork in it’. Pachter says that the majority of Wii U owners will be unhappy about missing out on FIFA and Call of Duty if the console isn’t supported this holiday season and they will subsequently purchase a second console, such as PlayStation 4 or Microsoft’s Xbox One.
“There are about 30 million Nintendo fans who will buy the console. Unfortunately 90% of them will be unhappy about missing out on 3rd parties such as FIFA or Call of Duty if the platform isn’t supported after the holidays. They will get a 2nd console as a result of that. In order for Nintendo to sell more than those 30 million fans they need 3rd party support. Otherwise stick a fork in them.”
