The Best Parts of the 2011 E3 Conference Thus Far

E3 has been full of remakes and sequels all while pushing Kinect and Move down the consumers throats. Here are the best parts that I have seen in my opinion. I've been watching most of the coverage and all joking aside there have been some cool stuff. First, here's sony solving the age old "screen looker" problem.


After some reading people say this have been done before buy Sony seems to be redefining it and I think that this is very cool. I've had several fights over this stuff personally as a child. Now just a few hours ago Nintendo released a showcase of their new console: Wii U


 Specs

Size: Approximately 1.8 inches tall, 6.8 inches wide and 10.5 inches long.
New Controller: The new controller incorporates a 6.2-inch, 16:9 touch screen and traditional button controls, including two analog Circle Pads. This combination removes the traditional barriers between games, players and the TV by creating a second window into the video game world. The rechargeable controller includes a Power button, Home button, +Control Pad, A/B/X/Y buttons, L/R buttons and ZL/ZR buttons. It includes a built-in accelerometer and gyroscope, rumble feature, camera, a microphone, stereo speakers, a sensor strip and a stylus.
Other Controls: Up to four Wii Remote™ (or Wii Remote Plus) controllers can be connected at once. The new console supports all Wii™ controllers and input devices, including the Nunchuk™ controller, Classic Controller™, Classic Controller Pro™ and Wii Balance Board™.

Audio Output: Uses AV Multi Out connector. Six-channel PCM linear output through HDMI.
Storage: The console will have internal flash memory, as well as the option to expand its memory using either an SD memory card or an external USB hard disk drive.
CPU: IBM Power®-based multi-core microprocessor.
Other: Four USB 2.0 connector slots are included. The new console is backward compatible with Wii games and Wii accessories.

Looks pretty cool I'll wait for more. As for my other thing that I love is Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim's demo. I really have loved all of the Elders Scrolls as an RPG fan. If you haven't yet you should try to play Oblivion and Morrowwind if you have never tried doing it. Some people say they're boring in the beginning but they are very fun and amazing stories.

  2. I've been hearing a lot of buzz about Nintendo's new controller but this is the first time i've actually seen what they look like. I have to say they do look interesting but I wonder how much they cost and whether people will decide to purchase them. It's neat that they have their own tablet-like component to go with their system.

    So unbelievably stoked for Skyrim!

    Thanks for the update!

  3. The Wii U looks fun... It looks like it has a lot of potential, but so did the Wii. If the controller is chargeable I'll consider it more. Can't wait to see more.

  4. Excited for Skyrim. IV sucked my life away. Feels endless.

    imo Wiiu is gimmicky. All it would take is an HD iOS device with wireless tv capability and physical controls to blow this this out of the water.

  13. When I was a kid, we only had Nintendo. We knew a kid who had all the Sony consoles, but my brothers and I always preferred our N64. The Wii U looks awesome.
