According to Pachter, Wii U's competition...

This claim seems a little far fetched to me. I doubt 95% of gamers can tell the difference between a solid 30 fps and 60fps. What is the point in rendering 4 times faster?


You realize most if not all gamers can tell the difference between a game running like compete s*** and a game running perfectly.

There's a difference between a game running like **** and a game running at 30 FPS.

Why does this guy still have a job? He said Walking Dead could never win game of the year and if it did he'd eat his hat. To my knowledge he has not eaten his hat, therefore his word is meaningless.


I saw a youtube video in my recomendations called Pachter eats his hat...

The latest round of Pachter claims. Obviously, the Wii U is already dead.

He claims that the PS4 will render hyperrealistic graphics at 240 frames per second.

This claim seems a little far fetched to me. I doubt 95% of gamers can tell the difference between a solid 30 fps and 60fps. What is the point in rendering 4 times faster?

Also what does he mean by "hyper"realistic graphics? As a prefix, "hyper" means over or beyond. The PS4's graphics will be better than real life?

Does he honestly think that even the best studio's will be able to create this sort of game and maintain a profit?

Another ridiculous Pachter statement that couldn't hope to be true.

The Wii U will be fine everyone. Pachter is still an idiot.


why are people still listening to Pachter? All he knows is investment, which IP's are making money, which aren't... Maybe he can do some projections for future sales, but anyone can do that with the sales figures available today...

240fps? lol! 60 fps is as good as any of us need... Maybe 120 fps for John Carmack and his VR headset, but 240? nah...

Graphics are already plenty good enough, and the artists talent/time/money are the bottlenecks there. Where the WiiU may fall down is in ports of games due to the big difference in specs, it may not be easy to port them across. Of course games with lots of npc's milling around, complex AI and physics may not be ported either due to the vast differences in CPU's. But the WiiU GPU is probably good enough.

But hyper realistic graphics? No Pachter has clearly found the wrong angle to criticise WiiU

Source? As consistently wrong as Pachter can be, this seems too stupid even for him, so I'm gonna need proof before I'll believe it.

I also find it hard to believe that you people would all believe it so quickly without asking for a source, so... Maybe you've all just seen the source elsewhere? If not, see my sig.

I did a Google search Pachter PS4. He really did say it.

PC. It's here, it's now, it's graphics are better. But that should only matter if you're a graphics whore. Where the power of these systems shine is in the gameplay.

He is either trolling, or is just a complete idiot. My money is on the second.

240 makes sense if Sony is aiming for 4 players without split screen. I just wonder how many people would have the setup for that.

Same as Microsoft's Ilumiroom or whatever it's called. Sounds like a great idea until you realize that practically no one has the required equipment for that

Pachter is still an idiot I see, the best thing to do would probably just be to ignore him.
