Pachter Surprised Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Not on Xbox One, PS4

Almost everyone who is into video games (not just playing them) probably knows who Michael Pachter is. Managing Director of Wedbush Securities, he is the go-to guy for most video game industry news.

In a recent interview with GamingBolt, Pachter talks about topics from E3 announcements and Xbox One’s Cloud Gaming to Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel.

Following on last month’s news that the upcoming Borderlands title from Take-Two Interactive would not be released on PS4 or Xbox One, instead it will only launch on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3, Pachter was of the view that it seems pointless to be releasing upcoming titles on consoles of previous generation.

The last generation has already been the longest running generation when it comes to consoles.

According to Pachter, it is understandable when a company such as Rockstar does it, as seen in the case of GTA V because “Grand Theft Auto, okay, the Rockstar guys are freaks, you know, they can’t get anything right” but someone such as Gearbox certainly has the potential for it.

The full interview with Pachter, who a few days ago also suggested that it’s possible that delay in Half Life 3, one of the most sought after title from Valve could be because of their focus on Steam Machine, can be found here.

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel takes place on one of Pandora’s moons where players will get to experience gravity bending fights in zero atmosphere environments. The game is set to release sometime in 2014.
