Analyst's hopes are low for Microsoft's Xbox One, says Wii U is "toast"

PS4 will beat Xbox One in the next-gen console war, predicts US games analyst Michael Pachter.

But that doesn't really matter, he says, because in ten years times console games will not be relevant.

During his speech at London Games Conference, he said he expects PS4 to sell 100 to 120m units in its lifecycle, Xbox One will sell between 90 - 110m units, while Wii U will sell just 30m units.

He gives PlayStation the edge because of its price and because "gamers do not want Kinect." But believes that Xbox's TV functionality could be a killer app, especially if TV services offer a subsidy on the Xbox One consoles.

He expects Wii U is 'toast'. "We think 30m is where it is set. If you are a Nintendo fan b**** about my opinion on Wii U, stop, put your money where your mouth is and buy a Wii U."

This sounds legit to me. Wii U will be lucky to get 30 million.

It doesn't take a genius to realize the PS4 is going to win this gen.

But apparently it does to realize the XB1 is toast coming out the door.
Any sig ideas?

I'm surprised Pachter dind't predict it to sell less than 30 million. I certainly wouldn't be surprised if it ended up selling worse than the Gamecube.

Lol have to love Pachter. Yes ps4 will win the gen but his numbers don't make sense. He is adding the Wii sales total to last gen numbers even though it was mostly a complimentary console. The combined sales for the Xbox one and ps4 will most likely be around current levels (160 million not the 230 million he is predicting) without a large influx of customers like China. If China enters the market all numbers will grow exponentially so in essence all three manufacturers win.

Why is this still a thing.
Dark Souls? Hard?!
