The Future of the Gaming Industry
Of late, there’s been a lot of talk about virtual reality, and micro gaming industry (casino and betting) have fished opportunities by launching various prototypes like the VR Roulette. Since VR technology allows for the immersive experience it became a sensation quick. Various headsets are available for purchase, and consumers will “terraform” the market.
Mobile and VR
Segmentation of immersive reality will take place determined by the wants and needs of different consumers, e.g. hardcore gamers will be likely to embrace the Oculus Rift, a VR headset, to provide the most stunning and powerful 3D experience. On the flipside, powerful hardware is needed to run the headset, moreover, it has to be tethered to a PC. This is not appealing.
For the casual game player, the Samsung Gear, is more suitable and is wireless and only exclusively compatible with the Samsung phone, therefore it is limiting. Without a doubt, it is a diabolical ploy to get people to upgrade their phones or purchase the company’s phones.
From the development and content perspective, understand which devices will appeal to certain gamers is very critical, making it is essential to develop content relevant and applicable, capable of harnessing the power of the device fully. Many companies are still toddlers in immersive reality, but not for long since the market is quickly gaining momentum and customer engagement is becoming more familiar, making content targeting possible and easier.
Another exciting technology, with the power to cause some tremors up, is augmented reality or AR. Augmented reality has the potential to enhance the world we live in massively. But like many technologies, it has to become ubiquitously available for everyone, before it can be appointed on platforms like online gaming. When this becomes evident happen, AR will have the potential to deliver a richer gaming experience but it’s an exciting prospect.
Best of Both Worlds
When you combine AR and VR together, remarkable creations come to life, the Microsoft HoloLens, cleverly combines augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) with the factual world, a triple bonanza of some sort. The headset is of high quality and impressive resolution. Moreover, it’s fully wireless no wired connections to a PC is required. However, challenges, such as loss of privacy, are emerging but this technology is exhilarating. Imagine gaming through a set of unique glasses, all your entire experience are heightened to a larger extent
