Pachter: No “dispute” that Nintendo has best exclusives
Industry analyst Michael Pachter has countered Microsoft’s claim to the best exclusives.
“Nintendo’s first-party content is vastly superior to either other console manufacturer’s, and don’t think that either Sony or Microsoft would really dispute that,” Pachter told IndustryGamers.
Pachter was asked to respond to comments from Microsoft’s Dennis Durkin, whom Pachter describes as “a great guy” but “paid to be loyal to his Microsoft family”.
Asked who he backs after Nintendo, Pachter said there may be “a scientific way” to determine whether Sony or Microsoft is better, but that it’s like comparing Target to Wal-Mart.
“They’re both good, and people have different tastes,” he said.
I have all three consoles, and love Sony first party titles like God of War, Gran Turismo, Uncharted, Little Big Planet and the upcoming Twisted Metal, and I love Microsoft first party titles like Halo, Forza, Fable, Alan Wake and Gears.”
