Nintendo’s Wii U is going to face an uphill struggle when Microsoft and Sony release their next-gen consoles according to Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter.

Speaking in an interview in the latest issue of GamesTM, Pachter confirmed what we all really knew: the next-gen Playstation and Xbox will be much better than the Wii U.

“When next-gen consoles come out they’re going to be better than the Wii U,” explained Pachter.

“Call Of Duty is amazing on the Wii U this year. The problem with playing Call Of Duty online is it’s a community and if there’s only four people playing it on the Wii U it’s no fun.”

“Nobody in their right mind would buy a Wii U and say ‘I’m going to play Call Of Duty’. That’s like saying ‘I gave up Facebook, and it’s Google+ now’.”

It’s an argument that blows the Wii U’s hardcore gaming credentials out of the water and paints a grim future for Nintendo's new console when the PS4 and Xbox 720 arrive on the scene.
