rallydefault commented on Mario Kart 8 Passes One Million US Sales as Wi...:

I think this is great news for Nintendo fans and all other gamers. It's good to see your hobby doing well! And honestly, I'm not surprised. Now that the raw magic of having the PS4 and Xbox One out there in the wild has passed, it seems that people are a bit more willing to at least look at what the Wii U has to offer in contrast to the mostly similar stuff (thus far) between the other two consoles.

rallydefault commented on Pachter: Wii U Will Sell Between 30 to 50 Mill...:

Some people will cry, "He's an analyst! He knows things we could never even hope to know!" To that, I nod my head slowly, but I still come up with the following:

IF the Wii U sells EXACTLY as it has been for the past month or two, then yes, Pachter will be correct. However, we all know that isn't going to happen, for better or for worse (hopefully the better!)

Also, I really don't care what kind of company insight this analyst may be privy to, but in most venues learned people are slow to make such grandiose predictions before a product has hit the market. Sports analysts love making predictions, but are humble enough to always acknowledge they could be wrong. Restaurant chains test new ideas in select states before launching nationwide, as there is no reliable way to know how well a product will be received until it is in the hands of the public.

Just my rational two cents.
