Pachter on Nintendo: “How the hell do they keep doing this?”

Saturday, 14th June 2008 10:43 GMT By Patrick Garratt

In the wake of May’s NPD release Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter has warned that focusing on the struggle between 360 and PS3 in the US is missing the point. The real story is about Nintendo.

“I don’t really think that Microsoft and Sony are doing badly – just doing badly in comparison to Nintendo,” he told Kotaku.

“It makes sense that PS3 and 360 are doing about the same… instead of saying ‘what’s wrong with Sony and Microsoft,’ we should be looking at Nintendo and saying, ‘how the hell do they keep doing this?’”

    To be fair, Nintendo have always been ahead of the curve when it comes to innovation and have always been copied by their peers – SEGA built their entore brand on trying to out-do what Nintendo orignated (and I’m a huge SEGA fanboy saying this).

    It’s just that it usually take the competition two or three goes to improve on what Nintendo first come up with.
