In an interview, the popular industry figure shared his opinion on the PS4 Pro and PC gamers, likening the crowd to racists and calling them twits before taking to NeoGAF to point the blame at his interviewer. The publication has attempted to include audio on its original story, but it doesn't play at the time of this writing.

Industry Analyst Michael Pachter likens PC gamers to racists
Industry analyst Michael Pachter recently shared his opinion on the PS4 Pro and PC gamers in an interview with British newspaper The Daily Star, likening the crowd to racists, then later taking to NeoGAF to point blame at his reporter.

When asked the question as to whether or not the device would be a good alternative for PC gamers given its appealing price tag and specs, Pachter responded with "I think PC Gamers are like racists; they only like their own kind, and they have no interest in venturing out and mixing with other races."

He went on to say "PC gamers are arrogant twits who are convinced what they do is better than what anybody else can possibly do. However if you were an Xbox owner and you’ve always wondered what it’s like to be a PlayStation owner, this is a great opportunity. And I think if you’re not a (next-gen) console owner at all – which would include a subset of PC users – this is the one you would buy. This (PS4 Pro) is the obvious choice."

Pachter later denied using the word "twit" in a post on NeoGAF, however, calling out the publication as being "irresponsible" and accusing his interviewer as simply attempting to "stir the pot." He did not deny using the term "racist", but only reaffirmed his saying it:

Since then The Daily Star has updated it's article to include an audio snippet of the man's quote to combat his accusation, which at the time of this writing does not seem to work.
