Wedbush Morgan Securities analyst Michael Pachter says Microsoft isn’t afraid of Nintendo’s Wii U, and so the firm won’t rush out the next Xbox to try and compete. He even went as far as saying Nintendo’s console is not actually next generation material, adding that Microsoft and Sony “don’t care” about it.
“And again, I take a lot of shit for this,” began Pachter on Tested’s Latest Video, per Gaming Everything, “their next gen system is a current gen systemâ€¦ But people who go, â€˜well what are Microsoft and Sony going to do to catch up with Nintendo?â€™, they donâ€™t care. Microsoft especially is not afraid of the Wii U. They look at the Wii U as an Xbox 360 with a tablet controller and is gonna likely come out at a higher price point that the 360 at the time.”
Sony recently said it’s not mentioning anything concerning PS4 at E3 2012, but Microsoft hasn’t been saying much. Fighting words from the analyst, as usual.
