Pachter says Nintendo needs a new game plan for success

Pachter said,

"Nintendo needs a change in strategy. Smartphones and tablets are nibbling away at the edges of the market for games. If Nintendo canít beat it, they should consider making money off it. Why canít Mario be on the smartphone?"

I'd like some changes in Nintendo but that is certainly not one I want.

Pachter said that RTS is a singleplayer turnbased genre.
Heck, he even said that PC games are a genre.
Normal people stopped listen to him ages ago.

This pachter guy sure seems to like talking out of his ass all the time and he's always wrong about nintendo. People should stop giving his articles traffic and just stop reading them all togther so he goes away.

Pachter can shove it. He has become rather annoying. This isn't the first time he's brought this up.

All I can say is I'm glad Pachter has no actual position in a gaming company. He'd royally screw everyone of those developers. "No no guys, this new bioshock game is good and all, but why not put it on tablets and phones instead? THATS where all the real money is after all! AM I RITE?"

In short: Screw Pachter.

Gaming is like a pair of boobs - Sony and Microsoft fight over whos boobs look more realistic, while Nintendo is about having fun with them - Walkiethrougie
