Pachter Says “Why Would Anybody Buy A Wii U?”

wii_u_back

Controversial Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter believes that Nintendo is currently in a world of trouble. Pachter cites the lack of third-party support for the company’s latest home console, coupled with the looming release of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, as a problem that Nintendo doesn’t seem able to fix. Pachter genuinely questions why anyone would choose to buy a Wii U at this point in time.

“The publishers are pretty excited to support the Xbox One and the PS4 – they really didn’t say anything about the Wii U. And we know EA has no games in development for Wii U. If Activision pulls support; if you see Ubisoft , you see Take-Two pull support, the Wii U is a Nintendo-only gaming device which is what they were back with the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1985. They’re not going to sell a lot of consoles if they don’t have games like FIFA and Battlefield and Call of Duty and Grand Theft Auto. Due to that, Pachter asks a simple rhetorical question: “Why would anybody buy a Wii U?”

      1. Firstly, even under those circumstances, people would buy a Wii U to play the seven hundred thousand IPs Nintendo has exclusive access to.
        Second, it’s the chicken and the egg. Nintendo made the mistake of not releasing any strong first party games up to this point because they didn’t want to alienate third parties. Nuts to that. Once the strong first party games start rolling out, the console will become popular. Then third parties will want a slice of the pie. Let them go, for now. They’ll come crawling back.
        Third, days of the NES? Have you heard of Capcom? Konami? Etc etc.
        Fourth, piss off Hackter

      6. The NES was the system that had the most 3rd party support including EA. He is also wrong about Ubisoft not having games all except Crew (and the other one) are coming and there allot of signs COD: Ghosts is coming, along with other Activistion games. Disney is showing support. Sega has games coming. Capcom has a few eShop games. I expect some more Japanese suppost with be announced at the Tokyo Show in the fall. Its not perfect by any means, but there is definitely 3rd party support for the christmas season.

        Also, we can’t forget the smaller independent games that are coming.

He only sounds right because of the current situation which can turn around for better or worse and as far as his past “predictions” go with Nintendo, he’s been proven wrong many times over more than you can count. He’s no psychic or god to read anyone or anything’s future. I’m not defending Nintendo at the same time. Yes they made mistakes with Wii U according to advertising it to the public and partners but the 3rd party solely abandoned the Wii U for one reason only: Same old inexcusable “underpowered” fanboyism BS they also played from the original Wii days. Like what Reggie recently said “PS2 was underpowered in its days but became the top selling console in history because of its fantastic library of games” and he was right. Its the amazing and original games alone that takes full advantage of the hardware sells the consoles in the end because it is its sole purpose. Wii U right now is struggling because of hardly any good games same problem went with 3DS, PS3 and even the Vita is heavily plagued.

        And now, with all the controversy surrounding PS4 and specially XBONE, exactly what justifies all these “analysts” proclaiming their triumph?
        Nothing, because they weren’t even announced when they were already supposedly beating Wii U, and now that they have NO system sellers and almost no exclusives, plus are surrounded by controversy (PSN, Spynect), and are launching at high prices in a decadent economy, exactly how is the promise of a huge ram trumping over the affordability and accessibility of Nintendo and PC?
        There’s nothing to back this retard’s claims, he’s a Sonysoft paid peon, attempting pathetically to sway the market’s opinion over these new consoles that are obviously not garnering the hype the companies intended, it’s a basic marketing technique, and any intelligent consumer should see the bullshit in his words.

        I always said it, Wii U would eventually pick up on its own terms, the same terms Wii and GC did, but what exactly was warranting all the clamor over PS4 and XBONE? Nothing.
        “Analysts” are a joke, their only job is over-hyping whatever they get paid the most for, and when truth comes then they don’t want to face it.

I mean you haven’t been really looking at the other games Wii U has have you, your just looking at games like CoD which are very much over rated and bland by every game, remember the Wii U just started it’s year what makes you think it can’t make a comeback it’s sad to have someone such as yourself gullible and will believe what any person says instead of your own opinion, another thing the ps4 and xbox one don’t have a huge library now do they i’ve only saw about 6 third party games for each and 2 first party along with other games that are still available for the ps3 and xbox 360 plus, the ps4 and xbox one, are very expensive consoles at this time, if you think about it times are rough for people in america so purchasing a console that’s 400$ and 500$ is a perfect price range that’s ridiculous for just a simple ram upgrade which cost like 30$ in Q3 and Q4 of these seasons so many games will be released for the Wii U remember it is Nintendo what they do with hardware is a different story, but there the most pledged company to make the best games.

      5. in all fairness off tv play is so overrated! you can get decent hdtv’s or hd monitors for £100 to £150, which will always look miles better then the games do on the game pad screen, seriously, if it was fully hand held then fair enough, by would you bother when you could have a 3ds? i for one hardly ever use off tv play, i would much more have preferred Nintendo use the money that when into the game pad, to have made the wii u more powerful and make it more future proof, that way we still would have gotten all those great Nintendo first party games, and also for once, get proper third party support!

        Off tv play is laggy, i don’t care what anyone says, it has input lag, and terrible dead zones on the game pad, and that’s on wii u aa games, like Assassins creed 3, and blops 2, and many more, also the input lag makes the virtual console games difficult to play too, seriously, play the vc games on wii u for a bit, then play it on wii, or better yet the originals, or even play the wii u versions with the wiimote if its available, trust me you will notice the difference straight away, and if you don’t, your most likely one of those people who say 60fps is the same as 30fps, and that you cant tell the difference, LOLOL their are so many like this!

        Maybe its because i have been spoiled, and because i game on and own all platforms, maybe thats why i am more sensitive, but regardless, i think the wiimote and wii motion plus where much better then the gamepad!
        i would have much more preferred if the pro controller was the primary controller for wii u and if one came in every wii u box! also if they would have stuck to the wiimote, and improved it, skyward sword, and metroid prime trlogy proved that the wiimote and nunchuck and wiimotion plus where the closest you could get to mouse like pin point accuracy, while having a fluid control input with the nunchuck

        Playing off-screen i reckon is not used by many and is instead a minority, the whole idea of playing a aaa console game is to enjoy the experience fully on the big screen, and the game pad screen just does not do the games justice!
        Even Nintendo themselves are hardly supporting it,and just like 3d games on the 3ds, it seems Nintendo will most likely distance themselves from it!
        I have more then 3 hd screens in my house, and a hd gaming monitor, i live in my own house, with 2 kids and the wife, and i always have a hdtv to use for my gaming! the poor battery life is another thing which makes the game pad off screen gaming stupid! remember tis is just my opinion don’t cry babies!

  5. So many devs/pubs and people in the gaming media seem determined to create a foregone conclusion; they’ve decided Nintendo will fail, so they’re trying to make it happen. I have every expectation that Nintendo will survive. What will happen next generation I cannot say, but Nintendo will continue making games and system until it no longer proves profitable, which given their track record won’t be for a very, VERY long time yet.

    At this point I don’t think I even want many of these third parties who have shown their true colours to even put titles on the system, because i don’t see why I should support such two-faced companies.

Babies only get baby Nintendo games. That is why 3rd party games sell so bad on the console (except for the ocassional 3rd party baby game). That is why also Nintendo itself didn’t want to publish Xenoblade, The Last Story, Pandora’s Tower in the West as they clearly know their own audience and didn’t believe there would be an audience for these “more mature” content games in the West It took Operation Rainfall to convince Nintendo to release these games in the West as Nintendo only publishes baby games now. Why not? They sell exceptionally well on the baby console. When you ask a Nintendo fanboy why should I get a Wii U? they blast you with a big list of baby games.
    Nintendo has no idea what the Gamepad is for as more than 8 months after the console was released they still haven’t shown a single game that uses the Gamepad in a unique way that couldn’t be done somewhere else.

  35. I bought a Wii U. Not because of the games it had at launch, but because of the potential it had for offering a different experience with existing and classic characters. The exact same reason I bought a Wii. My family owns all of the current Gen consoles. Our intro to the next Gen is the Wii U. Nintendo has set the bar for years now when it comes to gaming. FIFA and Call Of Duty hold no long term interest for me. They are easily replaced, upgraded, and cheaper to purchase secondary market. Nintendo offers a quality character based game that no one, shy of Sega, has been able to offer or replicate. The Wii U is lacking support, and lacking the attention now offered to the 3DS by Nintendo. It will happen however, it’s just a matter of time. In all reality the Wii U is poised to rule the holiday season here in the west, which will drive sales in the east. It’s more affordable, no one else is offering titles that are long term “fun” players at the moment (even the other next gen consoles). Sure, every next gen console has a great offering. Nintendo just always has a knack for offering a game that my family and I will play over and over again. That’s why I bought one. I’m not alone either. There are plenty of gamers that agree. Maybe it’s a niche market, or simple nostalgia, or maybe it’s because Nintendo offers something more than limited time enjoyment in a sports or a battle/war themed game? I think so. Waiting to see what Sony and Xbox will come out with, but playing my Wii U while I’m waiting.

        Otherwise, Xbox One and Wii U will be for exclusives only (unless a publisher gives me a multiplatform game for that system).

  41. One month…One month until Wii U ‘s first heavy hitter debuts in the States. One month until there could be a status change in sales on Wii U. Can Pikmin 3 do it? Can it show a change in status in increases in sales like 30%? I know one thing, once Pikmin 3 comes out, I WILL NOT BE ON HERE AS OFTEN. In fact that’s just the begining, 101, Rayman Legends will probably keep me away from here until gas prices reaches $6 a gallon. Also because Wind Waker is such a long as title, I will be so busy playing that game (I love replaying games I beaten before and now the game gets a facelift? Hell yeah), my ass will really be gone. Why buy a Wii U Patcher? Because of Wonderful 101, SSB U (All Stars can’t touch it), 3D Mario game (I don’t give a rats ass how many times a Mario game is released in one year Mario games sell). Mario to Nintendo is like Lebron James to the NBA. I got my faith back in Nintendo. When I was dogging Nintendo before, I was doing exactly what Microsoft wanted. WILL NOT ANYMORE. I’m sticking up to Nintendo like Gamer and Nintendo Commander. I’m going back to how I defeded Nintendo before….or my name ain’t JTZ!!!!!!!!

  42. Also remember how I was bitching about lack of online for 3D Mario. I failed to remember that even though Brawl had online, I only used it about 4 times. Why? Because it sucked. It sucked big time. Watching Tre’s video helped me realize something. If it was possible that they tested it, which make sense, it could have sucked. Think about, if it sucked, then people like Patcer would bitch big time about online. Mario, doesn’t need a crappy online. In fact, Wii U doesn’t need a crappy online period. I failed to realize that Nintendo has Dream Team and 3D Mario World releasing this year. Even if the two games arein’t innovative to Ness, the most imprssive thing is how quickly Nintendo made two Mario games for two different consoles. One has four player while the other has an all new experience of how Mario and Luigi team up which looks like one sleeps in order to kick Bowser’s ass. What Nintendo needs is to annouce the next date and time of another Direct and what upcoming games will they show that we never seen and heard of yet. Nintendo is up to something, something big, mean, nasty, scary, something I dont’ even know what it is yet, but I will find out or my name aint’ the one and only jtz.

    1. Another thing, There is still a lot of GamePad pontential not quite unveiled yet. I remember someone saying Nintendo doesn’t know what to do with the GamePad. Will that’s not true. Remember at 2012 E3, one image from the GamePad could leave the gamepad and appear on the TV as if it was real time? Remember a girl was holding a Wiimote in her hand and had the GamePad on the floor. The GamePad displayed a golf ball. The girl swung the Wiimote. The ball left the Gamepad and appeared on the television. A dart appearing on the GampePad, someone touches the gamepad and it leaves and chops down trees on the TV. last year at E3, hidden treaser could only be found the GamePad. Also, on one game shown on the Gamepad, someone was holding it and moved the controller to the far right, it showed images that couldn’t be shown on TV. OH NINTENDO KNOWS WHAT TO DO WITH THE GAMEPAD!!!! Why aren’t we experiencing this yet? Will it goes back to that article about holding back certain games at this year’s E3, don’t wan’t competition to have plenty of time to copy. When a company is silent, competitiors worry. How can you tell if a rival is worried? Pay journlist to bash the company that is the most quiet.

    3. EA and Activition? Whatever the fuck happen with the other companies like Atlus and don’t mention EA like is one of the great companies to purchase from.
    4. Why I bought a Wii U? I loved the concept that it had and it’s feature like Miiverse (it’s like the best way to connect to Nintendo and let you voice be heard by then), and the fucking Internet Browser (for some reason, I love it.)

    So keep bashing on the Wii U, Pachter. Just like the 3ds, It may probably rise above your fucking expectations.

  54. I am not a fan of him and he loves to hate on Nintendo. He is an Xbox fan. He also likes Microsoft over Apple. But this time Nintendo made his job of hating on Nintendo easy. It’s true, third parties are not investing in the Wii U. People say the Wii got a lot of third party support. That is bull, they (3rd party) put cheap crap on Wii, they did not invest in Wii. And it is happening all over again, now 3rd party isn’t even putting cheap crap on WiiU, they just abandon Wii U. I don’t think Xbox 1 will be a success until Halo comes out on it and then only Halo faithful. The PS4 has not only won, but is going to repeat PS2 domination unless Nintendo does something, and Microsoft has to take Kinect out and lower price. Nintendo needs some big awesome games and Wii U Sports. It is insane that their most successful games Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resort are not getting a new sequel on Wii U, that is stupid.

Its missing a game that makes me WANT to own it. With Xbox I get Halo, but its more expensive and requires kinect. With Sony I get all the 3rd party games I could get on xbox for a cheaper price with no restrictions, but no exclusives that interest me, with Wii U,its lacking many features and I get just the few games that Nintendo has out, none of which are exciting to me. So really, none of these consoles are very exciting to me yet.

      It is probably a joy to look at but that’s it…

      That’s why they need online in everything because they cannot come up with interesting games…

      1. Wake up. Technology is what offers new experiences and ways to play. Nintendo themselves adopted this approach prior to the Wii. It was more powerful technology that allowed them to create such gems as Ocarina of time. The fact that you now dismiss more powerful technology, as unnecessary, is wildly hypocritical. If it was Nintendo with the more powerful tech, I guarantee fanboys like you would be praising it to the heavens. Bloody hypocrites, the lot of you.

      2. Technology is indeed what offers new experiences and ways to play, but that doesn’t automatically mean the most powerful hardware delivers that. May I draw your attention to both the Wii and the original DS. Not the most powerful hardware-wise, but offered new experiences with their own technologies, experiences that everyone enjoyed, so much so that in the Wii’s case, Sony tried to implement their own thing, whereas Microsoft went a slightly different route. It brought about a new breed of gamers, and that’s what’s great for the industry, especially one that doesn’t want to admit to change, and is so fragile it could crash at any given time.

        If the Wii U had PC-architecture ala the PS4 and XO, yes we would be praising it, but we’d be praising it because it’s a Nintendo console, and we can play our favourite Nintendo games on it. However, the fact the Wii U has native backwards compatibility, something the other two clearly lack, is a plus, and what’s that down to? Technology. Third-gen Gecko Processor has its merits.

        The Wii U is fine with the power it has. You’ll see a sharper increase in quality when the powerhouses are released anyway. Nintendo was first out of the gate console-wise with GPGPU’s. None of the 7th gen systems have one. Both the PS4 and XO will, so by then developers would have the tools they need. It just means they have to learn to optimise their code and stop being lazy, which to be honest, is the fallacy of the industry. If you want raw power, get a PC. If you want the console experience, take your pick.

        Hypocrisy debunked.

      3. I specified that below. But basically the advanced technology allows developers to implement their ideas, which was previously impossible due to technological restrictions on current consoles, and create unique gaming experiences. In the same way the N64 allowed Nintendo new ways of designing their games. The SNES wasn’t powerful enough to allow them to create games like Ocarina. New technology isn’t simply about the graphics.

  72. I love the ignorance of you children. You seem to be under the impression that more powerful technology is simply about the graphics. What you don’t understand is that current technology is restrictive. It doesn’t allow developers to realise their full vision of their ideas. With next gen consoles, the opportunities are endless. They can finally make the games they want, exactly how they want them. Which allows them to introduce entirely new gaming experiences. The XB1 and PS4 controllers have not been modified too much from their predecessors, because they have become the definitive controllers for comfort and control. That is why. To argue against such things is moronic and futile. You don’t criticise something for being ideal for the job it does.

    Anyway, as I’ve said before. I will continue to support my WiiU until the end (which let’s be honest, isn’t far off). But trying to defend it in the face of the looming next generation is futile. WiiU WILL fail against these consoles. And the sooner you accept that, and stop stamping your feet like angry children, the better.

    1. The Wii U is next-gen. And the Gamepad was designed to fit both to new, creative ideas using the second screen, and standard gameplay styles. It has ALL the standard Dualshock/XBox controller buttons.

  73. Ah Michael Pachter, a fine example of the genus Herpaderpasaurus Talkingouttahisasschaps. Lest we forget the console has been out for nearly 8 months, and has more games on it than the other two unreleased systems at this moment in time, yep, certainly isn’t the time to be buying a Wii U is it? Games are games, they’re just not ones we can all agree on.

    Why should we buy a Wii U? Because it has games we like playing, with more to come a stone’s throw away. If it didn’t have games we liked playing, we wouldn’t buy. It’s not strictly about third-party support, it just helps when you have their support.

    Also, on that note, you know your desperate when your only argument underlines the sheer laziness of the industry full stop. Third-party devs are more excited about the PS4 and XO solely because of their PC-based architecture, cutting development time and expenses almost in half. If the industry demands so much power that it detracts from the overall experience of gaming, then count me out. I’ve got a PC for the power war, and I’m sure others have too.

  82. I bought it because it is the best controller in the market for me. It has all the buttons that you need and a touchscreen for added gameplay experience that differentiates it from Xbox and Playstation. Off tv play as well and I use the gamepad as an internet browser when my room tv is and my laptop is occupied. Great for local multiplayer that eliminates screen peeking and screen splitting in TVs. What more can you ask for other than more AAA and 3rd party mature games???

    Yes the console is underpowered compared to PS4 and Xbox1 but it can do 1080p and 60fps. It has also double-triple the RAM dedicated to processing games compared to last gen consoles. If we were ok already with 360 and ps3 graphics before and Nintendo gave it more power, it should be enough in my opinion to handle better looking games. Also I agree since day one that adding more power to the console is not just about graphics but taking off restrictions for game developers which also leads to unique gameplay ideas.
