Pachter Believes in the WiiHD, PS3 to Take Number 2 Spot, Xbox 360 to Fall Back to 3rd

Labels: , , , , , , , , ,

It's up to you whether you want to believe what analysts have to say, but I just thought that this was worth mentioning. An infamous analyst, Michael Pachter, has just announced his thoughts on the future of the 3 big console manufacturers: Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft.

First, Pachter went on to say that Nintendo's Wii will stay atop the console war, simply because of its "low price point, innovative control mechanism, and compatibility with standard definition televisions." He also suggests that the WiiHD - a Nintendo Wii with HD support - will help lead the way to staying at the top of the list - even for the next generation. According to him, the HD-capable Nintendo Wii could be available as early as next year.

Next up, he talks about the future of Sony's PS3. He doesn't say much about it, but he does mention that the PS3 will eventually catch up - and take the number 2 spot - to the Xbox 360 because it simply won the Blu-ray vs HD DVD war. I'll be in this boat soon enough.

He had some tough words for Microsoft's Xbox 360. According to his predictions, the Xbox 360 will eventually fall back to the number 3 spot because of its inability to sell consoles in Japan. But, he did go on to say that the Microsoft could sell twice as many Xbox 360s than the original Xbox and that's always a good thing.
