Don’t expect to get your copy of Resident Evil 3 soon

Stay safe, stay at home, maybe buy the game online

Capcom Asia announced over on their official Facebook page that one of their highly anticipated titles will take a while. Because of widespread concern over the coronavirus across many countries, you might not be able to buy a physical copy of Resident Evil 3 when it drops.

The remake of one of their most successful video games might not arrive in physical shelves in the Philippines by April 3, 2020. The company cited “logistical, distribution, and retail challenges,” especially with the metro heavily hit with the coronavirus over the past few days.

Of course, this is only a bummer for you if you had planned to get a physical copy of the game or pre-ordered it. Datablitz PH, one of Capcom’s distributors, opened up pre-orders for the game back in February, including an option to pre-order a Collector’s Edition. With this news, they will continually provide updates on the final release date through their Facebook page.

If you really want to play the game, you can opt to get a digital copy for either the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, or PC. Also, Capcom released a free demo of the game which takes you through the Raccoon City mission to keep yourself busy.

Honor launches Hunter V700 gaming laptop with a kickass design

Honor’s first gaming laptop

Published

Honor’s first gaming laptop has arrived and the brand is confident it can make a mark in the market. Starting with the Hunter V700, the brand says it packs best-in-class performance, excellent heat dissipation, as well as portability.

To start off, the laptop has a very aggressive design that focuses on RGB lighting, ergonomics, and sustained performance. Honor has managed to fill a high-end configuration despite the thin chassis.

It has a 16.1-inch display with a 144Hz refresh rate that’s accompanied by 4.7mm thick bezels, 100% sRGB color, and a maximum brightness of 300 nits. Unlike Apple’s laptops, Honor has managed to pack a USB-A port, HDMI, and an RG45 ethernet jack.

Honor has also included a new hinge that it likes to call Wind Valley design. According to the brand, the design facilitates up to 40 percent more volume of air for cooling.

“Traditional gaming notebooks tend to be thick and heavy to meet the high-performance and heat dissipation requirements expected in this category. Honor believes the pursuit of performance can co-exist with a lightweight and portable design,” Honor said in a statement.

The Honor Hunter V700 starts at CNY 7,499 (US$ 1,105) for the Core i5-10300H,  GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, 16 GB of RAM, and 512 GB of storage.

It’s followed by a Core i7-10750H with an RTX 2060, along with the same volume of RAM and storage, costing CNY 8,499 (US$ 1,250).

Lastly, you can get a Core i7-10750H, RTX 2060, 16 GB of RAM, and a 1TB SSD storage for CNY 9,999 (US$ 1,475). The sale is currently limited to China via VMall.
