The Crystal Ball of Michael Pachter on The Escapist interviews the outspoken game industry financial analyst about his work. They learn a bit about the nature of his work and his methodology, as well as the overall purpose of all that analysis. They also touch on his hit-and-miss predictions, though he proudly claims he's been ranked number one in earnings accuracy three times among all tech analysts. He also addresses the ill-will often expressed towards him on gaming forums, but also explains how he uses the gaming press: "Investors should [listen to me] because I'm really good, but look, I use the press," he admitted when I asked why we should listen to him. "It's a symbiotic relationship. I try to give you guys what you need, and I use the press to promote myself so that more investors want to talk to me. That helps me get paid more money."
