Our E3 breakdown: Microsoft's Project Scarlett looks crazy powerful (The 3:59, Ep. 568)

Video Games
[MUSIC] Welcome to the 3:59 I'm Roger Cheng. I'm Ben Fox Rubin. And I'm Oscar Gonzalez. Well E3 is upon us. The big video game confab is out in LA. We've got a whole team out there covering it. Oscar you were here though covering all of the action. What was the most impressive thing you've seen so far? And granted we're only about two days into it. It was by far, Keanu Reeves. So John Wick himself, he appears in the cyberpunk 2077 2077 trailer and sure enough. He shows up at E3 does a little Spiel has just a worm Roar of Applause and announces that the game is coming out next year. And you said if this was at a presentation or press conference that Microsoft help. In which they announced new hardware. Like a new Xbox coming in 2020 project Scarlet, but you said countries got more pros of that. It was huge. Even he was taken aback. [LAUGH] [UNKNOWN] he's a superstar and even he was like the wow Right and everybody just loved them. There was cheers there's a guy who helped him set your break. breathtaking. And that guy got a free copy of the game from CD project red because he had gold. He had called Kiana right. Well, I mean, look canneries been on a pretty strong run Java three obviously has a lot of fans. I wanted to give a shout out to Always Be My Maybe that Netflix film in which Keanu Reeves plays a version of Keanu Reeves that we think he is which is kind of amazing. Mm-hm. But back to E3 product Scarlett, we have to talk about the next Xbox 8K graphics, 120 frames per second, solid-state drive. What'd you think about it? It seems that for this next gen of consoles this secret sauce is solid state drives. Yeah. That is just going to make everything faster. When it comes to loading, when it comes to big areas, that's going to be the key thing. Graphics wise, of course it's going to be better. They didn't show anything But obviously it's going to be better again, PS Live is going to be better, but the solid UUU drive is going. UUU>> You are going to need a new television, right?>>8K graphics? You are going to have to upgrade your 4K TV, right?>> Well, we are still aiming for 4K content.>> Yeah if you want the 8K, yeah. I think it is a bit about Future proofing, right? Though the last version, the X Box One originally didn't have HD, or didn't have 4K just like the PS4. And so, I think they're trying to future proof a little bit there, right? So, it's not where they had to come out with that X Box One X to kind of power The 4k resolution. Is still a lot of time for them to tease out a lot about this product because it doesn't come out until holiday 2020 so this was probably just a little bit to get people interested and then we're going to see a lot more Are going forward Yeah, the more than likely they'll have their own little bit next year like they did with the Xbox one. That's where the show off the games but Halo internet is going to be a game for this for the start and Hey listen in cyberpunk 2077 were the two only two trailers that I managed to watch. Because I'm a huge Halo junkie. So beyond that, last week there was the Amazon re:MARS conference which kind of got lost in the shuffle with all the attention on Apple WWDC. Which they knew that. [LAUGH] They knew they were scheduling their first annual conference in dub dub. Tell me what is real Mars. So re Mars. It's basically Jeff Bezos, his conference that they had in Vegas where they talk about robotics, space, artificial intelligence. It's kind of big science fair. And you wrote about a couple of things. So it was this drone that was quiet enough that it could potentially sneak up on you. Yes. Yeah. So Amazon announced their newest five prime air drone at the conference, which It is kind of a big deal in that they continue to iterate these delivery drones that they keep telling us that they're going to deliver us stuff within 30 minutes but the FFA hasn't really moved forward with approvals where we don't expect this to reach a mass market At least the next couple of years if ever, but it was a cool new drone. And tell me about Amazon scout. Amazon scout I got a chance to actually see this. This is a delivery drone for the ground so it rides around in suburban sidewalks and one of the cool aspects of it that they told me about was that they create these duplicates of the real world the real neighborhoods that Amazon Scout is actually going around in. To actually train the A.I. to be able to actually know what to do when it goes out there and doesn't. I don't know. Knock over a tiny dog or something. All right. For more of these story she could have seen it. I'm Robert Jane.>> I'm Ben Fox River. I'm Oscar Gonzalez. Thanks for listening.
