The gaming industry is one of the fastest growing industries out there – and it’s showing no signs of slowing down – as updates are constantly being rolled out in a bid to keep enthusiastic gamers excited. The latest technologies have changed the face of the gaming industry entirely and gamers’ engagement and interaction with the console have been improved with new aesthetics. Combine that with a comfortable space to play (like the one provided by bean bags for kids), and the gamer is bound to get a truly out-of-this-world experience. Here’s a look at some of the most interesting technologies changing the gaming industry at the moment:
What is multi-screen gaming exactly? Well, unlike in old times where you had to pause your game to carry out other tasks, multi-screen gaming actually allows you to control and play with different functions as you game. You’re even able to switch from gaming to TV just by using the keypad! With Microsoft’s SmartGlass, you can easily perform secondary tasks right from your smartphone (as long as it’s compatible). You can even watch “Deadpool” on your Xbox console. Another multi-screen technology worth mentioning is Sony’s cross-play, which allows you to pause a game on PlayStation Vita and proceed on PlayStation 3.
You definitely can’t beat the experience that immersive gaming gives you. This technology gives you a taste of 3D with responsive controls and a head-mounted display. Companies are continuing to create improved consoles that give you a virtual reality experience. For example, Microsoft is using the appearance and geometry of your room to project the games onto your furniture. How cool is that?
Modular computers have been exclusively designed for the folks that are not necessarily tech enthusiasts. There have been developments with PCs so that they now come with independent hardware. What does that mean exactly? Well, if a specific piece of hardware needs to be updated, you won’t have to replace the entire machine. This affects gamers because they can now customize their PCs specifically for their individual gaming needs. For instance, the modular PC has several ports in which you can feed cards and players and arrange them to your liking.
Cloud gaming technology is unmatched! Streaming movies and music is a fantastically easy process. Now, imagine what streaming could do to your gaming. First of all, you can get access to unlimited games (as long as you have a fast and reliable Internet connection). You have the ability to stream videos by using the gaming company to keep the game titles in their servers. In this case, you don’t even need a console. Or you can use file streaming, where you just need to download the file first to play.
If you’re a dedicated gamer, you should always look out for new developments to help improve your gaming experience. Don’t let exciting gaming technologies pass you by – you deserve to fully enjoy the fantastic experience these technologies bring.
