Capcom has announced that attendees will be able to experience a VR version of Resident Evil: Village at the Tokyo Game Show 2022. It is noteworthy that this version of the game is being created under the PlayStation VR 2 virtual reality helmet, so it will be possible to evaluate it as well.
Tokyo Game Show 2022 will be held from September 15 to 18, and the helmet itself will hit the market in early 2023. The novelty is credited with a number of technological features that should improve user interaction with VR.
Among these we note:
- built-in camera that allows you to see the environment without removing the helmet. This mode will be optional;
- room scanning technology that will warn if the player has approached the edge of the playing area;
- VR and cinematic modes – the first is suitable for playing, the second is for watching videos.
PS VR 2 will get two displays with a resolution of 2000 x 2400 pixels per eye, the refresh rate will be 90/120 Hz. Thus, in VR mode, there will be 4K resolution. In cinematic, the resolution will be limited to 1080p, but the refresh rate will be from 24 to 120 Hz.
The estimated price is likely to be up to 400 euros, but in light of the latest news, it could be higher.
The cyberpunk we deserve? Twitter users were enthusiastic about the announcement of Elon Musk’s robot “Catwoman”
Today, Elon Musk presented a prototype of the Optimus robot – it already walks and sends air hearts to everyone. And after the official part of the event, the head of Tesla wrote the following verbatim on Twitter: “Of course, there will be a Catwoman version of our robot Optimus“.
An interesting statement was received with enthusiasm – the message received over 60 thousand likes, despite the fact that this is just a one-line announcement. Twitter users joke that through the efforts of Tesla, single men will finally be able to get a robot girlfriend.
When the robo-version of Catwoman will appear, it is not reported. Actually, Optimus itself is not yet ready: during the announcement, Musk noted that “there is still a lot of work to be done to improve Optimus and test it“. According to his forecasts, the robot will be perfect in 5-10 years. “I think Optimus will be incredible in five or 10 years, mind blowing“, – he said.
The robot will use Tesla-designed components, including a battery that sits on its torso, a chip system, and actuators to control its limbs. At the same time, the autopilot system, which is used on Tesla electric vehicles, will be installed in it. According to Musk, Optimus will cost “probably less than 20 thousand dollars“. Let’s hope the company doesn’t jack up the price of the Catwoman robot.
