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...

Third-Parties Won't Find Success On Wii U According To Pachter

Posted on Thursday, October 11 @ 12:46:20 Eastern by Alex_Osborn

The infamous Nintendo-bashing analyst is at it again, as Michael Pachter paints a gloomy picture for Wii U third-party support. In an interview with [a]listdaily, the Wedbush Securities analyst explained that he believes "we’re going to have a repeat of the Wii cycle from the publishers’ perspective and the developers’ perspective, where very few people will support it.”

Pachter went on to elaborate, saying that at first, we'll likely see a number of publishers jump onboard the Wii U train, but then start dropping off once they inevitably find little success.

If it’s successful they’ll come in, and they’ll fail. When they fail, they’ll go away again. The reason I think they’ll fail is, I can’t think of a third-party publisher that did well on the DS. I mean, Scribblenauts, so there are a handful games and you can count them. Nobody did very well on the DS, and I don’t think anybody’s going to do very well on the Wii U.

While there's a good chance that outside publishers will likely drop support in favor of the next Xbox and PlayStation, his reasoning with the DS is far from compelling. 

Do you agree the the polarizing insight opinions of Mr. Pachter? Let us know in the comments below.
