PlayStation Now Doesn’t “Have a Prayer of Getting Over One Million Subscribers,” Says Pachter

Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter has been awfully outspoken about his thoughts on PlayStation Now and why he thinks it will fail to be a success for Sony.

In the past he's called the stream service a joke and even gone so far as to liken it to PSP go. On the lastest episode of Bonus Round, Pachter quantifies his thoughts on the level of success Sony will see, saying "I don't think PlayStation Now has a prayer of getting over one million subscribers. I don't think it has a prayer of keeping them because I don't think the publishers will support it."

What do you think? Is Pachter being a little over draumatic? Will third-party publishers really be unwilling to provide Sony with software that isn't relevant to Sony's audience? Could the service survive on the back of first-party Sony content alone?
