Quick Quotes – Pachter thinks Gears of War 3 won’t sell consoles

Wednesday, 7th December 2011 04:10 GMT By Brenna Hillier

“[Gears of War 3 is] a great game, the biggest exclusive by far, but it is far from the best selling 360 game. It’s also a hard core game, and #3 in the series, so not much of a system seller (the hard core already had 360s and bought Gears 1 and 2). So I don’t buy into the argument it helps [Microsoft] compete.”

– Wedbush Morgan’s Michael Pachter speaking IndustryGamers.

    What a dumbass that Pachter. My Gears3 console rocks. He must have forgotten about that console durring the Gears 3 launch.

    Why does anyone still listen to this guy? He just points out obvious crap and re-states the facts…hey Pachter, Gears 3 came out in September! Maybe report on it then b/c no one cares anymore…

    not to mention no matter what it sold and will sell a few consoles since they have a specific Gears 3 edition…so technically it already did ‘sell consoles’

    System seller or not, Gears 3 surely is this year’s GOTY. No other game has so much content and does so many things (single, coop, multi) as good as this one. Polished to perfection.

    Tbh, I would rather think that Halo Anniversary would be a System seller. Reliving the old classic on redefined grafics is pretty sweet :D

    #6 i dont know which is more sad this or skyrim, at least gears 3 is a well developed game, for that IMHO is more suited than skyrim.

    If he is referring to xmas time, then you can already call bullshit. Black Friday saw hundreds of thousands of people lining up for the Gears of War bundle.

    I think not only skyrim needs a “pacht” badly, but also pachter, and a big one
