Pachter strikes again.

Wedbush Securities' Michael Pachter has a few choice words to say about Nintendo. And he should know - he's an analyst! In the latest episode of Pach Attack, the industry soothsayer has claimed that the Wii maker is years behind the competition with the Wii U, Wii Mini and online connectivity.

"I think Nintendo's a few years late," he exclaimed. "The Wii U is the 'Wii HD' and it's coming a few years too late. Wii Mini was a great idea back in 2008/2009... The eShop is about seven or eight years too late, Online multiplayer for Nintendo is about seven or eight years too late..."

"Poor Nintendo. I think they try way hard to get things right, it takes them a long time." He added that Nintendo has great ideas, but "they're great ideas from the last decade. The Wii Mini is one of them."

It's obviously not the first time someone has called Nintendo out for lagging behind the competition, but with the Wii U the Japanese giant is hoping to attract its core audience. These sorts of issues could be ones that matter to those who might be enticed by whatever Sony and Microsoft have to offer.

What do you think about the way Nintendo has handled the Wii U and its launch?

This man makes 15 conflicting statements, often taken directly from unsubstantiated rumours and tries to take the glory if he is right. The problem is, he is rarely right. He has been trolling Nintendo since the Gamecube died and if anything it has just improved Nintendo's fortunes. I think he just hates them because he knows they will never do what he would do if it was his company.

I agree that Nintendo are way too late to the HD party and have milked the wii too far but that is not their gameplan anyway.

Why are you giving Pachter the light of day? He's the most ignorant "journalist" around. Don't fuel the fire.
