    you should try using one, you'd be suprised how much better gaming is from the other side of the room on a plasma with friends playing with you

    Thanks for the tip, now to find someone with a plasma and willing to play with me. :)

    EDIT:Does Forza 4 have anything worthy? I haven't seen the videos yet.

    an LCD will work an i'm sure you have friends

    to be fair i find it sad most of the games of e3 this year have 3 or 4 in the number

    sad most of the games i enjoy aren't on the pc really

    halo aniversary doesn't interest me, but halo 4 does!!!, no more bungie failing to provide a good game anymore

    Nintendo brought it this year, A new Super Smash Bros. for both 3DS and Wii U, a better look into Mario Kart 3ds, Super Mario 3DS and Star Fox 3DS are both coming out this year as well as Luigi's Mansion 2, a new Kirby, Mario Party 9, Ninja Gaiden 3 and they still had time to slip in new hardware.

    Nintendo and Sony did a great job this E3.

    I do, just none of them have plasmas. Yes, I know LCD works fine.
    I find it funny they're almost all the 3rd or 4th installments of a title.
    And I'm happy because one of my favorite theme for games IS on the PC (albeit not exclusively). It's rally racing, btw.

    EDIT: I'm also looking forward to BF3 and like I said eariler, blasting the map with a B-1 armed with CLUSTER BOMBS!
    Oh boy, I hope it takes me back to the times of BF:V when I used to take the F-4 to the jungle.
    I need new hardware for it, though. :(

    i can predict all of the games with 3d in their name will be rubbish, as all movies with 3d in the name are

    It's an odd time for most of these companies;

    Microsoft - Still working out the kinks with their new hardware, Kinect needed to be supported. They were mostly presenting game sequels, and already announced titles.
    Sony - Getting hacked left and right, PS Vita was their only new Hardware, Move needed some support. Mostly presenting sequels and already announced games.
    Nintendo - Announcing a new Console, 3DS needed some support. They also really need to start selling people on the software level for the Wii\Wii U, people bought the Wii, but not many people bought games.

    3DS is the name of they're handheld system,why would the games suck because they're in 3D?

    I agree.

    I agree. Nintendo is really whipping Sony and MS ass. This E3 really hit that point home.

    things with 3d in the name have traditionally have been motly marketing with very little effort put into the actual product,

    for example:any 3d movie this year

    So with that line of thinking all the games for the 3DS are going to be terrible with almost no time put into the creation of the game. I see. Well, good thing I didn't buy one :laugh:.

    I'm sure the 3ds will have some games without 3d in the name, these will be the ones to watch

    EDIT: the 3dfx Wikipedia page starts with the words, once upon a time, think Its worth a read

    Halo Anniversery will release on a retail disk for $39.99. I love that. Its not really a full new game just a remastered CE. Activision/Sledgehammer/Infinity Ward take notes.

    I don't understand,with 3D movies, they're more of a tacked on thing. If the games themselves are good and they add 3D without the need for glasses in a well done manner then whats the issue?, I understand the marketing gimmick that is 3D, but if you have ever played the Nintendo 3DS you'll see that the 3D in a good amount of it's games(not all though), really make the games stick out without the need for glasses.

    You can also turn off the 3D if you want on the 3DS.(in every game)

    I think the Wii U looks great, it makes a change and i like change. Its all about how well supported the idea is and how its used. The problem with the original wii was the amount of shovel ware and some developers used dodgy implementation of the motion controls.

    I think the controller doesn't have the whole system in it, maybe it links remotely and you just get the picture on the screen. Problem with that though is potential lag over a wireless connection, button presses need to be instantaneous.

    the console does all the work and streams it to the controller using WiFi or Bluetooth.

    the hands on videos show no latency at all.

    OH snap, that is actually great. "Hey, shut it down! Time for XYZ TV Show." *changes controller to main display, walks onto front porch with Zelda in hand*:pimp:

    On a more serious note, how usefull could it possibly be? I can only look at one screen at a time...so the efficiency is pretty limited IMO
