"That's just like the people who play World of Warcraft and never stop, yet the World of Warcraft guys are paying $180 a year, and the Call of Duty guys are paying $60. So who's got a better model?" he said. "This multiplayer thing being free was a mistake. I don't think anybody ever envisioned it would be this big. It's a mistake because it keeps those people from buying and playing other games."

He sneaks in some random WIi U hate as well


"I think you're going to see now with the Wii U, notwithstanding its early launch support, nobody's going to support it," Pachter predicted. "I don't think we're going to see every game on the Wii U next year. I think when next-gen consoles come out they're going to be better than the Wii U."

Words can not express how much I hate this man.

This guy is an idiot. Nobody wants to pay for multiplayer on top of a $60 game and the live fee. He must work for Capcom.

I just don't get it. Analysts have done NOTHING to help the game industry at all. I really can't believe it's a real job. I can seriously just do what Pachter does now and I'm only 17. All he does is talk out of his ass and say some quite elementary things.

Despite how massively popular the franchise is, I think a subscription for MP would piss off just about everybody. I really do think that would be suicide for the series.

Capcom is one of the best developers/publishers in the industry. That's a fact.

You know how they talk and what they think of you (they almost literally hate you their consumers). You know their games are subpar. So Stop bloody buying them.

You must be confused, Pachter is a game analyst, he doesn't work for Activision.

Lmao this would destroy the franchise.

Get it right, do it nice. If you make a mistake, you're gonna pay for it twice. If you need it... got to have it. Get yourself a shotgun and bring it back home
