UPDATE: Webdush Securities analyst Michael Pachter claims that his quotes were severely misrepresented in the Daily Star interview, and has given the following statement to Tech Raptor to clarify:
"I am a PC gamer, I like PC gamers, and I merely referred to them as insular. I in no way intended to call them out as 'deplorables', and I think that the reporter overstepped the bounds of propriety in making it appear that I said such a thing with venom. In any case, I've given THOUSANDS of interviews without offending an entire group of people, and somehow this guy ended up with a "gotcha" moment. It's time to move on."
Original story is as follows.
In an effort to describe why PC gamers won't buy the new PlayStation 4 Pro console, Webdush Securities analyst Michael Pachter compares enthusiast PC gamers to racists and arrogant twits.
Michael Pachter is known for his controversial and brusque nature in the gaming sphere, but this time I think he's gone way too far. When asked if he thinks PC gamers would even think about buying Sony's new 4K-ready PS4 Pro console, Pachter said: "I think PC Gamers are like racists; they only like there own kind and they have no interest in venturing out and mixing with other races," Pachter told the Daily Star
"PC gamers are arrogant twits who are convinced what they do is better than what anybody else can possibly do," the analyst continued. Pachter apparently doesn't understand the PC Master Race satire and sees PC gamers as snobby elitists that flaunt their expensive video cards around in the faces of console gamers.
