A Case For Michael Pachter: We Love You

by Ernice Gilbert on May 26th, 2010, under Article, Michael Pachter

Not too often we get someone who’s not afraid to speak his mind on the touchy subjects of the day in any arena. People mostly shy away from saying controversial things, even if true, to avoid the chastisement that usually follows.

In this case it’s the gaming industry. No one would dare go up against Sony and talk extremely harsh about its products, especially PSPgo, but one man did. Nobody would even think of contesting Epic Games and the deal they have with Microsoft to even go as far as saying the developers regretted it, but one man did.

Yes indeed, others would be afraid of being punished, cast aside and neglected, but not this man; he’s basically gone up against every major developer, publisher and console manufacture saying things that most would die before blurting.

At E3 there are always surprises, and ever since Microsoft entered the game things have gotten even more intriguing. For the past three E3s or so, the software giant has been nabbing titles that were once exclusive to Sony’s PlayStation platform from all angles and genres.

From GTA 4 to Final Fantasy XIII, Microsoft has made E3 an exciting place again. But what’s left to steal? And will Sony flip the script on Microsoft this time around? We don’t know for sure, but the much respected and lauded Wedbush Morgan Securities analyst, Michael Pachter is “hoping” for fireworks this year. Whether it’s Epic Games or even Insomniac Games, at E3 something big should, and will happen.

For Pachter, Honest Is The Best Remedy He “Was Wrong” About Read Dead Redemption

Wedbush Morgan Securities Analyst is a wealthy man; wealth earned by predicting trends. He said most of his clients are worth billions and he travels throughout the year helping executives make well informed decisions while his staff, a big one, stays in the office and make his work easier. “It’s hard work’” the man confesses, and the reason why he’s the most successful analyst in the business is because the other guys and gals are just too “lazy”.

But with all his smarts and being a well respected analyst, he knows when to back down, say ‘I’m sorry” or “I was wrong” and take it like a man. And that’s exactly what he did with Red Dead Redemption. Apparently Pachter thought that the move Rockstar made by developing a Western title was a bad one, and they would live to regret it later. He was wrong.
