Japan's government has decided to expand the scope of its financial support for facilities damaged by Typhoon Hagibis, which swept through the country earlier this month.
The Cabinet Office said private schools, as well as public facilities such as community centers and libraries, have been added to the list of entities that can receive subsidies for repair work.
Japan's Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga says the government plans to discuss how to extend support to the animation studio in Kyoto that suffered a deadly arson attack.
Suga's remarks come as a nonpartisan group of Japanese lawmakers that promotes animation production calls on the government to urgently take any possible measures to rescue the Kyoto Animation studio and its surviving staff from their plight.
The other day, DJI announced their new gimbal in the form of the DJI Ronin-SC. The camera came with partial support for Fujifilm cameras, a huge plus given that Fujifilm’s cameras can sometimes get overlooked by accessory makers. However, what about the Ronin-S, the predecessor of the Ronin-SC?
For those who are unfamiliar, DJI had previously launched a gimbal for mirrorless cameras in the form of the Ronin-S. The gimbal at that time did not support Fujifilm’s X-series of cameras, but the good news is that it looks like support will finally be on its way. In a tweet in response to a customer on Twitter, DJI noted that they are still working on the firmware for the Ronin-S that will bring support for Fujifilm’s mirrorless cameras.
The other day, Nintendo officially announced the Nintendo Switch Lite. For all intents and purposes, the Switch Lite seemed identical to the Switch, except that it was smaller, lacked detachable controllers, could not connect to a TV, and was also cheaper. However, it seems that the differences between consoles is big enough where not all games will be supported.
For example, games that require the console to be connected to the TV will not be supported on the Switch Lite. Games that are also played in tabletop mode will not be supported either. Some games that require the gamers to have a Joy-Con will also not be supported, but in those instances, there are some that will work if players connect Joy-Con controllers to their console.
It has been rumored for a while now that Microsoft is working on a dual-display device which will be introduced under the Surface brand. A recent report had even suggested that the company had displayed a prototype of this device to employees. A new report claims that this unnamed device will have two 9 inch displays with 4:3 aspect ratio and that it will be capable of running Android apps.
The report claims that this device, codenamed Centaurus, will be able to run Android apps as that will be supported by Microsoft’s new Windows Core OS (WCOS) operating system. WCOS is essentially the platform for a more lightweight version of Windows OS. It’s this operating system that’s known as Windows Lite internally which will be used for dual-screen devices and competitors for Chromebooks.
As part of its new Shadowkeep year three update, Bungie is bringing cross-progression to Destiny 2. Players will be able to benefit from cross-save support for the title on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, and Google’s Stadia game streaming service. The announcement comes mere months after Bungie announced its split with publishing partner Activision.
This move will enable Destiny 2 players to share their characters across multiple gaming platforms which include Google’s new Stadia service, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. It is certainly going to make life easier for Destiny 2 players who previously had to create separate characters and make do with progress that was tied to each individual gaming platform. This will let them carry their characters and progression across platforms.
