Senior Analyst? Whatever that means. Here is a quote from this moron.
Michael Patcher ; "
“PlayStation Now is a joke. There is no publisher that is going to license content that’s less than two-years old because they would be concerned that they can’t sell as many copies if they make it available for subscription or rental.
This has no prayer of working. None.”
Ive followed loosely this guy for years Ive never seen an individual more wrong most of the time. Mark my words. Im no fan-boy but i guess Im a senor analyst. This guy tried to compare this to NETFLIX business model. Let me tell you why he is wrong again.
-Publishers get money from SUBSCRIPTION
-Publishers seem to not mind I keep getting AAA titles FREE for my PLUS sunscription, I guess they are not concerned that their games are "Available" for subscription? See he is already wrong.
-Putting an slightly older post release game into suddenly millions of homes generates millions in Micro transactions for the publisher for a game that has past its peak selling window. Netflix doesn't do this Patcher.
-No one ever said all the games would be brand new releases, ps1, ps2, ps3?
This guy is just a mouth noise maker. No prayer? Mark My words in two years.. Ill bring this post back up...
