Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter has told Industry Gamers that he doesn’t see either Halo: Reach and Super Mario Galaxy 2 as “system sellers”.

Speaking on the back of yesterday’s Nintendo 3DS announcement, he said: “I still think that the Wii as a hardware SKU lacks catalysts.

“I can’t imagine Super Mario Galaxy 2 or Metroid Other M as system-sellers, any more than I would expect Halo Reach or SOCOM to be. The hardcore Wii audience already has a Wii console, so these game launches aren’t likely to be catalysts.”

Super Mario Galaxy 2 is out in Europe on June 11, with a US release on May 23.

Halo: Reach is looking likely to release in the fall, possibly on September 14.
