Google and LG Display have made the highest resolution VR screen yet

Google and LG Display have joined forces to design the clearest OLED display to date. The 4.3-inch screen, which Google recently revealed at Display Week, is designed to push the boundaries of VR image quality with an incredible 1,443 ppi resolution. For comparison, Japan Display Inc unveiled its slightly smaller 1,001 ppi LCD screen earlier this month, which outclassed both the Oculus Go (538 ppi) and HTC's Vive Pro (615 ppi).

All Xbox One 'PUBG' players can access its terrible second map

Whether you love it or hate it, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds' second map is out of testing and available for all players on Xbox One as of today. If you're a fan of sniping, Miramar, with its focus on open spaces and elevation should be right up your alley. In addition to the semi-fresh play-space, today's patch brings a new revolver, a lever-action rifle and a sawed-off shotgun into the mix, as well as a handful of tweaks for game balance. Not a fan of the new map? Well, you aren't alone in that, but, you can always hope that the PC and mobile version's map selection feature is added in the next patch on Xbox One.

'Battlefield V' returns to WWII with ever-evolving multiplayer

Games in the Battlefield franchise have covered conflicts from the Vietnam War to a fictional future in 2142. Developer EA DICE took the series into new territory in 2016 with the well-received Battlefield 1, setting the game in the rarely touched World War I era. For the next installment, Battlefield V (let's just not talk about the naming convention) returns to where the franchise started: World War II. As you know, the conflict comes up time and time again in films and games, but DICE hopes Battlefield V will tell some of its untold stories, and link these narratives to an ever-changing multiplayer experience intended to keep players interested, and logging back into the fight. Oh, and you won't have pay for the privilege of new content either.

Hands on with Acer's premium Chromebooks and Helios 500

If you've been turned off by the limited horsepower in Chromebooks so far, Acer's new Spin 13 might be for you. It sports either an Intel Core i3 or Core i5 CPU, something we've only seen in Google's pricey Pixelbook. In a brief hands-on session at Acer's launch event today, the Chromebook Spin 13 definitely felt a cut above the Chrome OS competition. Its metallic case is sturdy and smooth, and since it's a "Spin" model from Acer, you can also twist the screen all the way around to use it as a tablet. It's not exactly exciting, but it shows there's more for the Chromebook market beyond sluggish education-focused machines.
