FEATURED VOXPOP samsmith614 Since game design is a business, I decided to see what's really selling well for the PS4. I did this search a week ago, and at the time, out of the top 20 bestsellers on Amazon 10 had not even been released yet. By now some have been released. But others still have not. And yet others...

Pachter Calls Wii U "Dumbest Name Ever"

Posted on Monday, June 13 @ 16:08:08 Eastern by

Leave it to Michael Pachter to further muck up what you should be thinking in response to the Wii U's reveal. A tablet controller? HD graphics? Super Smash Bros. across the Wii U and 3DS? Maybe your head is spinning. Let's look to a letter Pachter sent to investors to understand what all the business-people-types should be thinking about Nintendo's new hardware:

The most impactful 'reveal' at the show was the Wii U, which, in our opinion, is arriving two years too late. Depending on pricing, the system will be either a phenomenal success or a phenomenal failure, as competitive bundles for the Xbox 360 with Kinect and the PS3 with Move are likely to be priced below $300 by the time the Wii U launches.

When you're looking at a product that's not scheduled to be available even a year from now, how accurate are you going to be? Pachter continues:

Sony's presentation was solid, and the pricing on the PlayStation Vita (the second-dumbest name for a device after Wii U) was quite a surprise.

I'd say that the Wii U is the second dumbest name after the Wii, but yeah, the Vita is up there.
