Outspoken industry analyst Michael Pachter has told Venture Beat that he believes Nintendo will abandon the hardware market in the next generation of video game consoles. Pachter doesn’t believe that there’s a market for Nintendo hardware any more, but there’s still lots of interest in the innovative software that they put out.
“They are more than a decade behind the curve, and they are so insular that there is no desire internally to learn from others. Nintendo hardware goes away. There is a place for their content. There is no place for Nintendo hardware. Nobody cares. They will have to abandon hardware.”
