Before I begin, let me make something perfectly clear:
Michael Pachter isn't "always wrong." It's an absurd notion and hardly realistic. I've been reading his industry notes and predictions for years and I hate to tell you, the majority of the time, he's at least in the ballpark. Some can say there's a lot of common sense involved, but whatever.
The bottom line is that when he's right, you won't find a single headline saying he's right. When he's wrong, on the other hand, the world explodes with laughter. Standard hostile Internet fare, if you ask me. We simply ignore one and embrace the other; doesn't make him "always wrong." That all being said, Pachter may have just made one of his biggest blunders…
"A lot is a stretch. Thirty. They have thirty games."
Uh…oops? What's that, thirty franchises ? He doesn't really mean they have "thirty first-party games;" I mean, that's just a bizarre – not to mention completely false – statement. I'm assuming he's going to clarify because at this point, he's starting to sound like an ignorant albeit paid Microsoft employee.
Don't worry, though, I'm sure he'll recant and revise. He has to, in point of fact.
