Analyst: Nintendo trumps Microsoft’s first party offerings

One US analyst had rubbished Microsoft’s belief that its first party Xbox 360 titles are “superior” to the catalogues offered by either Nintendo or Sony.

In fact, Michael Pachter thinks that Nintendo is the clear leader when it comes to the quality and success of first party console software.

“I think Nintendo's first-party content is vastly superior to either other console manufacturer's, and don't think that either Sony or Microsoft would really dispute that,” Pachter told IndustryGamers.

"As far as who is better, Sony or Microsoft, I'm not sure why anyone cares about my opinion. I have all three consoles, and love Sony first party titles like God of War, Gran Turismo, Uncharted, Little Big Planet and the upcoming Twisted Metal, and I love Microsoft first party titles like Halo, Forza, Fable, Alan Wake and Gears.

“I'm sure that there is a scientific way to determine who is better, but that's like arguing about whether Ford is better than GM or whether Wal-Mart is better than Target. They're both good, and people have different tastes."
