Wait Did He Just Compliment Nintendo?!

Analyst Michael Pachter has once again talked about the Wii U on his show Pach-Attack Show this time, however he positively talked about the economic advantages of Nintendo's decision to not host a big E3 presentation.

This is what he had to say: "I think it is a crappy decision because you don’t get many opportunities when you’re a console manufacturer to have the entire world focused on games. So it’s the one time a year that you can be certain that everybody cares...I think that from just a basic decision it’s an opportunity for Nintendo to really show off a lot of stuff.

But you asked was it a good business decision and, from your basic economics, it’s a profit deal. If you’re expected revenues from spending money are bigger than the amount you have to spend to generate those revenues, then it’s a good business decision.

I think that Nintendo gave this a lot of thought – they said we don’t really have anything new to show...we don’t really have any new Wii U games that are going to shine that are playable and, oh by the way, the reason that Fox News, ABC, etc, are all here is to look at the next Xbox and PS4, then we’re just going to look bad next to them.

I think not doing it, probably, is a good business decision. I just think, as a gamer, and as someone who is interested in the industry, I would prefer to see everybody represented at every show. Nintendo made a business decision, and ultimately, it is probably the right one."

He obviously forgot about the first party announcements that Nintendo said would be revealed at E3 such as Mario Kart U, but he does seem to make at least a few good points.

What are your thoughts regarding what pachter had to say on his show?

I think he's right to some degree but Nintendo should still have a large scale conference and show the games. 3D Mario, Mario Kart, and Smash Bros 4 would still make big news against the PS4 and Xbox, especially since both have/will be revealed before E3.
This guy still sounded like he did not know what he was talking about. Nintendo isn't holding a big show, but that does not mean that they won't make any announcements. Analyst: Nintendo Made A Good Business Choice By Skipping E3 This Year. 1625187496
Even when he compliments Nintendo he still sounds rude. Sad
Idk patcher seems too wishy washy
Honestly I really dont care about what this guy has to say anymore.
