Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter has voiced his concerns regarding Nintendo's Wii U.
During the Develop Conference, the analyst stated that Nintendo won't get lucky a second time with the reasoning being that the Wii U "isn't going to work". For one, he believes the tablet controller won't spearhead sales; instead, Patcher states it'll create difficulties for the Wii U's capabilities.
"Essentially this is a solution in search of a problem. I mean, somebody had an idea - 'let's make the controller a tablet' - and there aren't many games that are going to take advantage of that."
Pachter added that hardcore fanboys certainly won't be deterred by the Wii U.
"[Nintendo] could put out a piece of cardboard and say that it'll play Mario and they'll buy it."
While he never had much faith in the Wii, Pachter admitted the platform has done well commercially but the success won't be replicated with its successor.
"It worked, they got lucky [but] I don't think they're getting lucky with the Wii U."
Clarifying his comment that Nintendo "sucks", Patcher states "they really believe that, 'If we're still novel, everything we do will work'. This isn't going to work."
