Some may call it the kiss of death, but Michael Pachter can get some things right, sometimes. He tweeted as series of predictions where he said that Wii U will sell out a few months. He was initially in shock after Nintendo announced the $300 price point for the system.
“Am not in NY, watching the live stream. I presume we see 1 million units a month produced, Wii U will sell out through April (at least),” he tweeted.
Now that I know Skylanders is a launch title, I feel a lot better about the Wii U. Skylanders, Wipeout, 007, Transformers on Wii U shows a lot of support from Activision. It also signals they think Wii U market is casual… ah, one more game . . . CoD BO2 is a launch title. I still think that’s why we saw the Wii U Pro Controller.”
“I expect global manufacturing of 1 million Wii U’s per month, starting now. That means 7 million produced and shipped through March. We should see roughly 30% of units shipped to U.S., Europe, Japan with 10% ROW. There are at least 2 million fervent fans in each geography.”
