    Media Markt employee #1 when I asked him if I could participate in their contest where you could win a gaming laptop if you end up at the top of their leaderboard in a racing game: "Sure, grab a controller. The game is called Need for Speed 3"
    And internally I'm like "wut? oO That game is like 18 years old. Surely he's joking!?"
    He meant Forza Horizon 3.

    Media Markt employee #2 when some other customer asked him what kind of PC you need to run the Oculus Rift at decent settings: "You only (!) need a good graphics card for VR. I recommend getting a GTX 1080, which only costs like €300, so..."
    A 1080 goes for €856 on mediamarkt.de as of right now

      Editing … Anyone who says "You can get a PC that can run the Witcher 3 at 4K for like $800 ya console peasant!" needs a good throttling. They must all live within 50 miles of Silicon Valley or some shit.

      Editing … with the North American prices, folk have put together 4K gaming PCs for under $500. An increased resolution is becoming less and less of a factor in modern GPU performance, so I guess 4K as the standard for gaming could be rather soon.

      Editing … aw gee, with the Pro and Scorpio running games at 4K, and the Switch most likely between 720 and 1080p, we're gonna have another Wii (480p) vs PS360 (720-1080p) generation.

      Editing … I meant to say max TW3 but didn't want to edit so I don't have to see the damn \\\\\\\, which even at 1080p is fairly taxing.

      Editing … I can't even max out TW3 at 1600x900! Honestly, I like the idea of games including visuals that we can't even reach yet. "Wow, this game looks amazing! It'll look even amazinger in ten years!" ... "amazinger"

      Editing … For all the benchmarks I've seen, 4K cut TW3's performance in half compared to 1080p if not worse. I don't get the point of 4K if you have to cut back all the bells and whistles and take a frame rate hit. Even switching between 720p to 1080p with my PS4 on my huge ass TV isn't that thrilling of an improvement, and the returns after that are increasingly diminishing. I'll take VSync, SSAO and the rest over that any day. I mean have you seen how damn cool HairWorks looks?!?!?
