New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern surprised Twitch users by becoming a guest of the broadcast of new Zealand streamer Broxh. During the broadcast, she chatted with viewers and even fulfilled their request to make a deb on camera.
ESports journalist Rod Slasher Breslau drew attention to Ardern’s visit. He noted that this is the first time in his memory that a high-ranking politician came to visit a Twitch steamer and directly communicated with His audience.
In the past, other politicians have already paid attention to the Twitch audience. In particular, in February 2019, French President Emmanuel macron chose the platform Twitch.tv to hold debates with activists of the “yellow vest Movement”. Channels on Twitch have the us presidential candidate for the 2020 election, Bernie Sanders, as well as the current President of the country, Donald trump. However, these politicians did not conduct any personal broadcasts.
Broxh is a popular new Zealand streamer with almost 1.2 million followers on Twitch. He specializes in broadcasts on Whakairo-shaped Maori wood carving, and also plays in World of Warcraft. In the new Zealand community, Broxh is called one of the most modest streamers of the platform. He gained such fame after he returned money to donater for donated subscribers.
Minecraft will get support for virtual reality devices on PlayStation 4
PlayStation 4 owners will be able to play Minecraft in virtual reality — support for VR headsets for the console is promised to be added by the end of September. The developers did not give an exact release date for the update, but the feature will be available in the next patch.
Minecraft developers noted that the VR version of the game will have the same content as the original version. Before starting the game, users will be asked to choose one of two modes-Living Room Mode (playing on a virtual screen) or Immersive Mode (playing with a first-person view).
Previously, the VR version of Minecraft was only available on PC. The game officially supports Oculus, Windows Mixed Reality, and Gear VR headsets.
