    I wonder if they know that the AT&T network is actually the fastest and most reliable network that exists right now? It got very hard to keep it in shape with the massive influx of users it got from the iphone generation, because it was overwhelmed, but the actual network is by far the best.

    I don't understand some of the criticism here. Concern for not being able to have more than one Wii U controller? I get it. Criticism for Nintendo's unveiling at the presentation being unclear? Get it. Other than that, there really isn't much worth to criticizing anything else.

    The wii console isn't selling like it use to, sales have trickled down to nothing noteworthy. They know that trend is likely going to continue until the holiday season boost, so the unveiling will not hurt that much. Plus, they have already made a ton of money off of the Wii. The life cycle for the Wii is done, and nintendo knows is. Hell, we all knew it before the unveiling.

    I am also surprised about the criticism concerning the PS3/360 footage at the conference and concern of third parties not jumping on board. Devs have likely only had 2-4 months on unfinished hardware. No one in that time would be able to port their game engines. It's the main reason why we will/are see those re-releases at launch. Getting those engines ported over right away is top priority for third party devs who create multi-platform games. It's highly beneficial for Nintendo, and the third party developers for the engines they use to be working with the system right away/at launch. It's also important for developers to have time for their engines to expand to support WiiU specific functions( the multi-screen display, gyroscopic control, etc). John Carmack even said recently that wiping the slate clean and developing totally new game engines from scratch is dead now. There is zero point in doing so.

    Personally i agree prey 2 should be sub tittle.im still pissed your not playing as tommy.im so sick of playing some white guy as the hero...

    skyrim i cant wait for it

    Altair is a much better character then ezio(hes cool but overplayed and bit of a dbag).assassins creed:reve dos look fun.i cant wait for AC3 hopefully just desmin and maybe a new character or more altair

    pretty good show.bet you guys are gald to be done with E3

    Morgan i agree disneyland/world is boring and lame(yeah never been but honestly growing up i didnt like Disney)

    everyone is bit*hing about the cynicism and jadeness.but honestly i would be just as much as you guys maybe even more when you deal with E3 and same old stuff over and over again nothing really new.and fanboys going banans over nothing

    great show as always..i have to agree with everyone when they say we dont need or want consoles..in this age when games take 3 and 4 years to put together why does everyone think after 10 years we need another console..we are just seeing what these machines can do..ps3 especially..im not a fanboy by any means, but i feel like the well isnt that deep anymore for the 360 and ps3 has a bit still to tap..we need content, games, new IP first and foremost..i dont think anyone is interested in buying a brand new 700$ system and another 70ish for the games..and to the point of the 3s..i think its about time to hang up some of these games..while i love some of the worlds/universes these games live in..im sick of seein em..i think more games like heavy rain and la noire need to break onto the seen..but its always about the almighty dollar, and whose makin it and whose not..its a shame really..i think indie gaming might be the next frontier as far as new and interesting gameplay mechanics..

    After E3 this year I think it's obvious that the big companies, particularly Microsoft and Nintendo don't relate or understand their customer base. I was left scratching my head at a lot of the announcements and demonstrations. The gaming industry is going downhill. I used to love Xbox and now it's becoming more and more about TV and casual games. How many people are honestly going to buy an Xbox to watch movies and TV? People, even casual gamers, buy these consoles for games. They don't buy them to watch TV or movies. The only hope seems to rely in 3rd part games.

    The only problem with Nintendo is that they keep laying the Nostalgia card and remaking games from the past.

    Just letting everyone know. The president of nintendo came out and said the focus on the crontroller of the Wii U was a mistake.

    lol I didn't even know that the wii U was a new console, I just thought it was the ipad thing, and went with the regular wii console.

    I agree with what someone said earlier, these people are JADED, and for what reason. It's so funny how almost nothing seems to make them happy, but when it comes time for this stuff to release, they get excited like little school girls. I haven't watched much G4 lately because I think these people have become way to full of themselves, and at the end of the day, you are simply the head of the nerd factions which really isn't something to be excited about or proud of.

    On another note, I don't understand why there was "confusion" with the announcement of the Wii U. Everyone knew it was going to support HD graphics so CLEARLY it was a new console, they just wanted to focus on the controller. I appreciated Adam's comments more in his soapbox spot when he said he will wait and see before passing judgement. I dare anyone to bet against Nintendo. At the end of the day, they are a company, and a company wants to make money, and Nintendo always makes a boatload. All of this criticism is perfect, because they will hear it, process it, and give the people what they want. I for one thought all of the companies brought some cool stuff this year, and I am excited for what's to come.

    Being the huge fan of Assassin's Creed that I am I just wanted to say Revelations is set it 1511 which makes Ezio 52. Not really that old but hes not 40.

    Morgan Webb just lost a lot of points with me. Disney bashing? Seriously? You hate Disneyland? Not have a soul much? Show me on this doll where Mickey touched you.

    I already sold my Wii, I am so exited about HD Nintendo games and the aspect of cool features for games like Skyrim. I mean, if Bethesda can do Skyrim on PS3 and 360, what can the do with a slightly better console with a cool tough screen controller? I mean I want to see Elderscrolls 6 on this thing, I know its early, but it could be cool, no?

    I can't wait for ME3! I haven't bought a handheld since the Advance, I think I may finally dish out some $$ for the PSVita. Otherwise, this E3 wasn't very impressive. :(

    I stopped watching after Kevin said "Halo 4 is coming and I am very excited." Mr. Kelly you are dead to me, leave and bring JP back. While you're at it fire Eric Eckstein and bring Abbey Heppe back.

    GREAT show like always but I have one huge gripe against that BLAIR guy, I'm Black and my wife is of Asian decent, we have 2 beautiful girls and the oldest has her beautiful mom's asian features and the youngest is also bless with asian features and more pronounce black features aswell, but make no mistake about it they look asain 100 percent, anyway besides what you say BLAIR are kids do look normal pal.

    I just want to thank the G4TV show for hiring this jack-ass and saying such a racist statement in-front of my entire family and her parents via the net hooked to are apple TV, my wife was shock to hear him say that as was I, we stayed cool for the sake of are kids but we got so upset we just had to comment, I guess he acts goofy on TV but in real life he has some closet racist beliefs...

    I think BLAIR should apologise for his comments to all us mixed couples who look to your show for are home entertainment needs, my kids and my adult friends think highly of G4 but those comments he said only fuels the fire's of racisism and hatered of millions of young minds (your target audience)
    that watch your network and internet shows everyday, PLEASE be more sensitive in the future!!!
