The gaming industry is a multi-billion dollar sector. It’s come quite a long way since the days of Tetris and Nintendo consoles. Gaming nowadays is more likely to be mobile. Pixelated graphics are a thing of the past too, as developers use technology to create almost photo-realistic graphics.
Games are no longer limited to arcade machines or consoles, but can also be accessed via PC, mobile devices and more recently, through virtual reality headsets.
New gaming technologies in 2019 are set to bring in even more excitement for gamers.
What gamers can look forward to:
Virtual Reality Headsets that can render 3D graphics
Hardware capabilities currently don’t allow gamers to enjoy hyper-immersive gameplay. Developments in the industry are set to change this, however. This is likely to mean that gamers will be able to enjoy graphics that are very similar to real-life.
Gaming in the cloud
The popularity of cloud computing technology has been great for a number of industries. The gaming sector is also going to benefit. Gamers will be able to play a game from any device with an internet connection. This is also going to be great for saving space on devices. Another result of this change will be cheaper games.
Popularity of handheld consoles
Propelled by the success of the Nintendo Switch, handheld consoles are set to become highly popular. This has been pegged to appeal to nostalgic gamers of the 80s and 90s, who will also look forward to enjoying gaming without the distraction of other apps.
Additional Screens for gaming
For those gamers who would prefer to just have an additional screen to supplement the main one on their device, this will be one of their favourite of new gaming technologies in 2019.
