"Let's hope Nintendo get their mojo back"
Wedbush Securities research analyst Michael Pachter hasn't exactly endeared himself to Nintendo fans over the past few years.

"This is not a game. It’s a social network concept"
Nintendo has revealed its first smartphone offering, and it's fair to say that it wasn't quite what people were expecting. Miitomo is arguably more of a social experience than a game you play, and that hasn't been lost on our old friend Michael Pachter, managing director of equity research at...

Doesn't think third parties will succeed on Nintendo's new console

In an interview with Industry Gamers, Pachter stated he believes Nintendo is...
Analyst must have gotten out of bed the right side this morning
Every time Nintendo does or doesn't do anything, well-regarded analyst Michael Pachter almost always has something snide to say about it.
