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?
