    Except, he was mostly wrong. That's kind of the joke.

    Some of his specific predictions about individual products have been wrong (like when he predicted Blu-Ray would fuel big PS3 sales back in '06 and '07), but his overall guidance on stock prices has been pretty solid. Not that it's that hard to make quarter-to-quarter predictions about which companies are making money and which are not. Most of the conclusions he comes to are "well duh" type idea. Yeah, you should buy Activision stock when CoD is taking over the FPS market and you should avoid investing in Nintendo when the Wii U is a failure. Those are things anyone who's deep into this thing could probably predict.

    But that's a challenge for an outsider to understand, and he's an outsider. Imagine if you took any one of us and said "Right, your job is to learn about and understand this whole section of the stock market that deals with producing the heavy machinery used in building out assembly line style factories. We want you to give us solid recommendations on what companies we should be investing in, and who we should be avoiding." As outsiders, we would do our best to understand that market, make some predictions, and give the boss our recommendations. That's what he spends his days doing.

    Technically he was right about that prediction. More consoles were sold than software leaving software adoption rates at around 0.81 per console during the first fiscal year. The majority of people buying the console were buying it for blu-ray. Gamers were instead buying the Xbox 360 and everyone else was buying the Wii.

    If my memory serves me, he predicted something like 100 million consoles sold over X number of years. I don't remember what X was though. Still, he thought it was going to be another bull like the PS2 was.

    Meanwhile,

    HDD's resident Xbot reviewer, Levi Van Tine, gives Recore a 60/100 and has some good, some bad, and mostly lukewarm things to say about it.

    He admits that he would have given it a 40, but he gave it a 60 because xbot. He also notes that CD would hate the game, because there are no dragons, but that if you drink a lot, you can drunkenly hallucinate dragons into the game, and therefore CD in coldfoot form would love it.

    I've been playing Recore a bit. It's actually not a terrible game. Not an A+ game either....but it's pretty fun.

    I am actually going to drive back down to NJ to go see Shin Godzilla in October since apparently that is the closest it is playing to me. Lame.

    I'll say this...I actually finished 3, I couldn't bring myself to finish 4. It was so boring.

    Maybe he was referring to Palmer Luckey this whole time.

    I don't think that was him. I think that was just Sony's original sales goal. Most of his predictions that I can remember were more about current trends. He would predict trends usually about quarterly sales and what not.
