Rumor: Next Resident Evil to Support PlayStation Virtual Reality Headset #PSVR #PlayStationVR

resident-evil-6-screenshot-7

Update: This rumor came true! Capcom announced at E3 2016 that Resident Evil 7: Biohazard will be Virtual Reality enabled on PlayStation 4 and launches January 28, 2017. The game will be playable with or without VR and a demo is already available on the PlayStation Store.

See video footage below of the demo in action:

With recent hardships quelling and productivity returning at the house of Capcom, gamers are about to get hit with a dose of Biohazard. Umbrella Corps for Windows PC and Sony PlayStation 4, the RE: Outbreak reminiscent multiplayer cousin of the survival horror experience we all know stateside as Resident Evil is releasing mid-June. This release is perhaps tolerated at best, feared by many and unexpected by some. While fans of the modern RE titles and those gamers with an open mind to experimentation will likely find some hours of fun in the title, the question we all want to know is: Where’s Resident Evil 7?

A source asking to remain anonymous once told RGN, “-wait until you see what they’ve been working on, you’ll see they’ve been busy,” in regards to a full entry in the Resident Evil series that can match the elements of what make the series great again in a modern age epic masterpiece which all RE fans feel has potential.

Imagine seeing first-hand the world of Resident Evil with full immersion.

This source has been valid for many years disseminating information where fit and gave advance notice of the PS4K verified with worldwide leaks that have hit these past weeks. The following information has been provided over a long term span of time and may be subject to change as the project moved forward.

What we can expect from Resident Evil 7’s design aspects, and technical features:

  • Explore, aim, shoot
  • Less of a run and gun, more cinematic
  • Teach players a new format for how to enjoy horror and stealth shooter genres in VR
  • Marriage of Survival Horror and Stealth
  • True to the roots of Resident Evil series
  • Immersion as a first priority, Action still remains but is better balanced
  • PlayStation VR Headset support for virtual reality immersion
  • NEO (aka PS4K) settings support for higher resolutions of gameplay.

Umbrella Corps is set in 2015 after the events of Resident Evil 6 (perhaps the most hated game in the whole series) and provides a competitive multiplayer angle to the series. These side-content online experiences such as Mercenaries from RE4 and RE5 have always been a big hit. RE: Outbreak was respected in its own right as a standalone spin-off that only worked with a modem in the back of your PlayStation 2. The epic struggle for numbered franchise entries has always been to balance the classic survival horror feel with the shooter action pacing introduced in RE4. That isn’t required of Umbrella Corps, but it is of RE7, hence a lot of the anxiety in the Resident Evil fan-base over which development path the game is taking.

In comes PlayStation VR, capable of bringing virtual reality to the 30 million+ PlayStation 4 owners [s] and PlayStation NEO (also known as PS4.5 or PS4K) which was recently leaked after heavy rumors began to circulate as a rendition of PlayStation 4 capable of higher VR and HDTV settings including games at 1080P / 60fps and higher with upscaling to 4KTV sets. Although native graphics of the NEO setting on PS4 games from its release onwards will still be higher than PS4, they will likely not reach 4K on graphic-intensive experiences like Uncharted 4. The great news with that is PS4 games still work on both a NEO and PS4 the same way, the game would just have two different settings. to switch between.

All of this new technology is right on time to make the biggest difference in the world for some of our stale franchises too scared to change without time left to stay the same and tread water. Resident Evil is certainly one of those franchises. And so it should be as of no surprise that Capcom could be working to get things right with RE7 for the series, what their fans want in a true RE game, and the future of the video games experience.

This rumor comes at a time when titles like Madden VR are being discussed (Shouts Out EA Sports and HipHopGamer Inc., and Ubiquity Inc.) and true adoption of the PSVR seems destined. Capcom is already onboard with VR technology and has experimented with Resident Evil in many genres; Resident Evil: Dead Aim is a little known gem in the series (if you had the GunCon 2 pistol controller with thumbstick) which could be a pre-amble on what these design specs mean for Resident Evil 7. Recently Sony announced there were more pre-orders than expected and had to double production output to meet the newly visible demand for PSVR units.

Earlier rumors some years ago conflict with this news saying that Microsoft had attempted to approach Capcom with a deal for RE7 similar to the Dead Rising 3 contract agreement. With so much time being passed, and RE7 being a flagship entry in the series – it would appear this never materialized making this rumor all the more likely that RE7 will support PS4K and the PlayStation 4 VR headset whenever it is eventually revealed and heads toward launch. The wait could still be years.

RGN has reached out to Capcom representatives and will update this story when / if this rumor is confirmed or denied.

Many may remember the Hip Hop And Gaming Panel held at PAX East 2011 which I covered for the past incarnation of the HipHopGamerShow website back before RealGamerNewz was founded. There I wrote about how Random AKA MegaRan alongside Guests like K-Murdock and MC Frontalot spoke on how sampling video games can go bad (a la Lil Flip and the Pac-Man sample scandal that brought him down a few notches) as well as their own histories with the two industries and how Gaming and Hip Hop have more and more in common as time goes by.

It was my first time meeting MegaRan and his views got me interested in buying his music. HipHopGamer also lit up the panel afterwards with insightful questions, so it’s a no-brainer that he’s a host on the panel this year. Everyone in the room felt the energy from the panelists and HHG as we all had something to do with Hip Hop and something to do with Gaming at some point in our lives. The two worlds seem to fit hand in hand, a couple of cool hobbies that have grown to be some of the most successful industries in the world.

Fast forward to PAX East 2014, Our own News Editor DJ Killzown Jones will be covering this year’s Hip Hop And Gaming Panel which features Random AKA MegaRan, MC Frontalot, and HipHopGamer. The event takes place from 2:30PM – 3:30PM (EST: Eastern Time Zone) on Sunday (April 13) at the Badger Theater, if you are attending PAX East 2014 then be sure to jump in and catch this event! Who knows what these hip hop heads have planned for The Next Frontier, we will find out. Stay tuned for our coverage of PAX East 2014 as it proceeds at our dedicated PAX East Section.

Shots Fired: Playstation 3 Beats Xbox360 Sales Worldwide Playstation 4 Will Do The Same

PlayStation 3’s Triumph Over Hate is What Xbox ONE Faces. In HipHopGamer’s latest Shots Fired video the hate on PlayStation 3 and its successes and triumphs despite an entire industry seemingly attempting to shun and defame the image of Sony’s first high-definition gaming console in 2006, and even before it released.

Now that Microsoft XO (Xbox ONE) has been announced a shocking turn of events is unfolding through which we are seeing the industry essentially flip sides and is now supporting the Sony PS4 (PlayStation 4) while finding any reason possible to bash the Microsoft XO (Xbox ONE) from all angles.
