    What's been your favorite part of E3?

    Mine was all the Zelda coverage. I think it's the first year in awhile that Nintendo has won. I'm also excited about Mass Effect Andromeda, but the story doesn't seem that interesting.

    I heard xbox announced a new console that will support 4k, but considering you need a gtx 1080 to maybe get 60fps at 4k then people are really going to be disappointed if they don't make it really clear that 4k is only for videos. I also saw pictures of Norman Redus holding a baby with Kojima, still not really sure what that was about

    It might just be 30fps though. Or the games may just not look as good. My motherboard can get 4K without a graphics card, as long as I'm not playing a game. But you're right, they should be clear.

    It's amazing that Nintendo only really announced one game (there is some game coming out for the 3DS, but it wasn't mentioned by them), and yet Zelda is all anyone is talking about. The heads of MS and Sony even said they were excited about it. I read the line to try it out closed after 15 minutes, but the last people still had to wait 8 hours.

    4k gameplay at 30fps still requires massive hardware, a gtx 980ti can barely perform at that level and a gtx 1080 can barely hit 60fps.

    Well, a ton of people have played Zelda, especially the older people gamers which I would expect the executives to fit under.

    Ah. My monitor is 1080p, so I have no way of testing that.

    I'm a little late here but I don't think I've ever watched an E3 before. There's way too much stuff to look at so I don't even bother.

    Lol, do you at least read the highlights afterwards?

    @LiNkZoR I read that the new X1 will play games at native 4K, and it reminded me of this conversation. It also made me wonder how the NX will hold up. There is very little chance I'll buy it if it doesn't at least beat the PS4 and X1. If it doesn't, then Nintendo still hasn't learned anything.

    If it is native 4k they would have to sacrifice either the textures or framerate, i believe that they are going to be able to probably going to be around 30fps with below ultra PC graphics, probably medium or high. The NX might be able to, i haven't heard very much about it. It seems like nintendo just releases like 5 first party games that are amazing for each console and then forget about it and make a new console. The new Zelda looks pretty cool and might be something i would buy a wiiu for, but I haven't even beat Skyward Sword. I still beat OoT and MM once a year though I did a 100% my last MM play through, there was a lot more to that game than I had ever seen.

    If there is a good Metroid game (so not Federation Force bulls**t), then I will be more inclined to get it, but I want a console that can keep up. Its portability makes me think it might not.

    Using cartridges in a console again is going to be weird.
