Pachter: 'I was wrong about Red Dead'

Rockstar was "right all along" that Western would sell, says analyst

Respected industry analyst, Michael Pachter has admitted that he was wrong to be sceptical over Rockstar's stellar western, Red Dead Redemption.

Speaking to CVG this morning, the Wedbush Securities man succeeded that Rockstar was right to puts its trust in a Western game.

"I suppose we should call them visionaries," Pachter told CVG. "I have been sceptical [for] a long time, but they always believed that a Western, if done well, would sell well. It looks like they were right all along. Nobody can doubt that they made a great game."

The industry Nostradamus even hopes he'll receive a copy, though admitted that the chances of Rockstar sending him one are slim: "Maybe after that comment, they'll finally send me a copy; they haven't sent me any games since I doubted whether Bully would sell well," he joked.

You can have one of ours, Michael.
