Seems DoA to me. I'm not replacing an entire pc, which is fully functional, to get all the drm pieces.

Technically Zelda is max 900p when the Switch is docked, but that's a minor detail.

I agree with most of what you said about Breath of the Wild, although I've only played it on the Wii U. It's...

Am I thinking correctly that this is the first time Nintendo has had a Superbowl ad, period?

I would pay $250 for a UHD BD drive for the Shield with playback software. Maybe even $300. It may be more than an XB1, but it would still be a better device/experience than XB1 or any standalone...

I think 3d only works on a 100" screen anyway, I'm fine with tv's losing 3d, as long as there are still 3d projectors. But the problem there is that if no new tv's have 3d, then home 3d content will...

I think its like tv vs monitor. If it has no tuner or smart functions, its a monitor. In the same way, I think if a pj has smart features or tuner, it becomes a "tv".

Am I missing something? Has Hisense risen to the level of elite $10k+ AV equipment?
