    The reason why zelda is the most talked about game at e3 is because its the best game at e3. All the other games were CG movies for people who like to watch CG movies. Nintendo dropped one bomb and it blew up big.

    Let say nintendo dropped one game like "Horizon". Its a cool game yes, but what's there to talk about? You run around and kill robots for a week and then you put it down for the next big AAA game. As soon as the game launch its forgotten. If you want Horizon you got it. I am surprised that nintendo can come to e3 with one game and still create buzz.

    The games that are coming out are so disposable that a month after Horizon comes out you can get it for 5$ in the bargin bin. Remember the hype behind watchdogs? whos still playing watch dogs? who wants to go back and 100% that game? The ps4 vs xbone battle is a losing battle for the software companies - they have to drop prettier and prettier games that are cheaper and cheaper until they cost barely nothing.

    The longer nintendo can stay out of that game the better because they will never survive as a software company supporting gamers who care so little about the games they play.

    What you mean by cheaper?

    I am sure game prices increased by $10 since last year.

    It's always been about the gameplay and Zelda never disappoints in that department.
    You have been a console hater from day one.

    Completely disagree. A game company staying out of the game........WHAT! Its common knowledge that Sony and M$ lose money on manufacturing consoles, they make up for the shortfall by selling games and licensing. So if my math is incorrect, why come out with a new console to lose money off again and then hope the make up for the shortfall with Smash Brothers, Zelda, another Mario game and Pokemon. To me this defies logic.

    Consoles to me dont make much sense - not saying they dont have their place not everyone is as technically inclined as we are. Why not leave that headache to the consumer. PC gaming is way more profitable but companies have convinced themselves that it isnt quite so due to "piracy" I think Steam has clearly demonstrated that largely PC gamers just want easier access to games and would not not have the hassle of downloading something and then cracking and then recracking because of an update and you know the drill. So they run go hug up the consoles, the sales numbers speak to this, PC components labelled as gaming had over 21 billion is sales last year - thats more than double console sales.

    And as for gamers not caring - no one 100% a game anymore very few games make we want to especially when a new one is coming out every other week - this is the new normal games are dirt cheap this is not 1995 where god bless when you got a new SNES cartridge I started PC gaming last October and I have 117 games in my steam library, 21 in Ubisoft and 17 in orgin and I have not spent $100 total. Nintendo annoys me world without end. Nintendo has a sure fire 10 million seller sitting on which they will never release because of convoluted thinking about the relevance of the DS. On open world Pokemon game would sell 15 Million copies EASILY but no, instead the release the same game and have been doing so for 21 YEARS.

    With all that said consoles need to die.

    2 things....

    They don't lose money on current consoles. They make profit.

    Also Console gaming is more profitable. Games are priced higher and console game sales are always higher.

    Sometimes I want to sit in my living room and play WiiU or Xbox. I hardly turn my pc on these days. PC gaming is what is dying and gaming all together because of greed. Lets release 40% of the game for 100% the price and sell the remaining 60% for 100%.

    Steam sales and Origin sales. So far I have bought zero. Games these days aren't even worth that to me.

    All the features that made games great are now gone (dedicated server, modding, lan play etc...).

    Gaming is not a necessity for me so these days I go a week without even turning on my computer. I only turn it on to write code.

    No sure about Sony - but M$ definitely loses money on consoles http://learnbonds.com/122889/microso...box-one-sales/ they make up the remainder through licensing.

    As far as I am concerned, my PC is my console - boot straight into big picture mode, I wish there was some something that could work like big picture mode but would be able to combine Steam, Uplay and Origin games..........now there is an idea.....

    PC gaming aint dying - not by a long shot. Too many exclusives and too many genres
