Analyst says Wii redesign and Wii U should have released years ago.
Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter says that Nintendo is a few years too late in releasing the Wii redesign, the Wii Mini, and the HD console, Wii U, saying that their ideas are “from the last decade.”
“I think Nintendo’s a few years late,” Pachter said on GameTrailers’ Pach Attack. “The Wii U is the ‘Wii HD’ and it’s coming a few years too late. Wii Mini was a great idea back in 2008/2009… The eShop is about seven or eight years too late, Online multiplayer for Nintendo is about seven or eight years too late…”
“Poor Nintendo,” he said. “I think they try way hard to get things right, it takes them a long time.
“Nintendo’s got great ideas, it’s just that they’re great ideas from the last decade.”
Sounds a bit too harsh, though, seeing as their “great ideas from the last decade” usually sell like hot cakes.
