Nintendo 3DS to “Sell 16 Million Units” in First Year of Sales

By Kyle Durant

A unique thing that most gamers don’t know about business and marketing are the analysts that cover those topics. These analysts weigh in on certain things like “how well a product will perform”, “how much a product will sell”, “issues with any given product”, etc. If there is one renowned analyst that people have heard of it’s, Wedbush Morgan’s, Michael Pachter. On a KOAM TV piece, Pachter believes that Nintendo will sell “as many 3DS systems as they can make” and despite the recent epidemic in Japan, “an estimation of 16 million units worldwide is very fair”. It will be some time before next year comes around, but we’ll hold Mr. Pachter to his word. Nintendo is more than likely ecstatic at this prediction because of all those headache complaints. Zing!

Pretty much your above average gamer who plays games profusely and appreciates them even more. Been gaming since the NES but is in love with anything PlayStation. No I am not a typical fanboy...I appreciate each system for their strengths and recognize their weaknesses. I just love the PS brand. (Think along the lines as someone who likes to read but loves one author in particular). Ever since my time as #2 in the world at Resistance 2, I have taken video games much more seriously. Don't get me wrong, I am a laid back, fun guy to game with...but I always play to win.
