Is this thing gonna flop?

If you should take one thing away from this topic, it's that you can never listen to "analysts" like Pachter, especially when it comes to Nintendo. I saw this video ( ) posted in a different topic a few days ago and it really is quite funny that Good Morning America predicted Nintendo's demise right before the SNES at the hands of Sega. You can't use industry standards to predict Nintendo. No one would have guessed the N64 would have changed the industry with 3d models and the analog stick. No one would have imagined that the DS's dual screens gaming would work at all. No one imagined 3D gaming would be popular without glasses on the 3DS. Hell, no one would have expected Nintendo to bring casual gaming to the forefront of the industy. Nintendo always manages to defy what people believe is possible.

Yes. The 720 and PS4 are coming soon and they will be beast machines.

The 720 will have the 6670 and the PS4 will have the A10 + 6670, very high end parts that the Wii U won't be able to compete with.

Devs and customers won't be able to compete either. Lol

No it will not flop. Jeeze people relax this isn't Virtual boy. I'm still wondering why Microsoft is even in the gaming console business. Don't they make computers for that? What can the 360 do that a High end PC can't? If anybody needs to have their system flop it's them.

Enjoy paying 1200 dollars for PS4 at launch. That thing ain't gonna be cheap I can tell you. Do graphics really need to be any better at this point? I mean the current systems still look damn amazing.

Who the hell takes anything that Pachter says seriously anymore?

It will flop in sales BIG TIME. Wii succeeded because it catered to casuals and it was priced cheap. The Wii U does neither; why would any casual person by a Wii U, when they already have the Wii? Also, the price was higher than the Wii's. Furthermore, Nintendo has abandoned hardcore gamers and most of them have learned from their mistakes of buying a gimmicky console.

Why don't these analysts ever have a negative opinion about non Nintendo systems?
Are the competitors paying these dip wads to say all this crap?
