1. Immersive Gaming: The Comeback of Virtual Reality (VR)

A number of you might be amazed to understand that 3D films have existed since about a century ago. The technology simply didn't did take flight because then due to high costs. It is not until in recent years that we've experienced the revival of 3D technology not just in movies like Avatar, but also for gaming displays.

We also have observed the evolution of video games in terms of its graphic quality, so much so that one would have trouble identifying a video game from a real-life scene today. It looks that there is a movement towards more immersive digital entertainment, from movies to games. The question is, where can we go from real-life 3D images and beyond?

  •    A Virtual Reality Comeback

With major leaps in technology that led to improved hardware capabilities, virtual reality (VR) has started to resurface in the gaming and gaming industry. Of particular note is the upcoming Oculus Rift, a VR head-mounted display (HMD) created by Palmer Luckey.

Due to be released early next January for a mere $300, Oculus Rift characteristics a massive field view (107 degrees), quick-response (ultra-low latency) head-tracking system, and include immersive stereoscopic 3D rendering capabilities as well. Its prototype which was showcased in several gaming conventions has received numerous positive reviews from game developers and internet reviewers alike.

2. Secondary Screens for Gambling

With the booming market for handheld devices such as smartphones and tablets, the console war between the three major brands (Sony, iPhone, Microsoft, and Nintendo) has intensified, with a rush to create a secondary gaming device for players. PUBG is also one of the trendy mobile game in youngsters.

  • Wii U

Consider the recently released Wii U GamePad, which comprises a built-in touchscreen that may function as a supplement to matches. In first-person shooter games, a second display lets you access the map along with your inventory without leaving the game industry. What you could do using a secondary screen isn't limited to this, it adds to the gaming experience which is demonstrated beautifully within this ZombiU gameplay trailer outside for an interior view (Warning: the video contains violence and gore).

  • SmartGlass

Even Microsoft is catching up with all the competition with the coming of Xbox SmartGlass. However, unlike the Wii U, SmartGlass is a program that acts as another instrument for gamers to interact with. It can be downloaded accessed from tablets and smartphones to improve the gambling experience.

  • Sony Cross-Play

Sony has taken its first step to combine their Playstation 3 games using their handheld device, PS Vita via the Cross-Play attribute, allowing the gamer to stop playing on one device and resume on another device.

3. Open-Source Gambling

Examine the amount of free (or cheap) homemade games offered in the mobile market today and you'll get an idea where future matches could be going: Open Source! For example, Ouya is an Android-powered, upcoming video game console (to be published April 2013, pre-order here) that works beneath the concept that matches should be cheap to build and cheap to purchase.

Independent programmers don't have to buy an expensive software development kit (SDK) to create games and release them to the marketplace. Ouya offers 1080p gaming experience and contains tons of free-to-play and cheap games at just $99, it is difficult not to see where the appeal lies with Ouya.

  •    Game Development

The console itself is one of the development kits, so anyone can build a match if they want to do so. Making sport development easier and cheaper creates more innovative game makers, giving rise to more assortment of free-to-play games for everybody. Games of the future may no longer be monopolized by important game programmers, similar to how video-making was made mainstream by Youtube.

4. Augmented Reality (AR)

On top of seeing your real physical surroundings, in Augmented Reality, you will be fed with additional information or data overlay, digitally, in real-time. One great instance of Augmented Reality in business will be the mobile app, Wikitude. Holding up your smartphone and pointing towards your surroundings, the display shows neighboring restaurants, ATMs, hotels, etc for your navigation.

In gaming, you will find already gaming apps like DroidShooting, a simple shooter game that lets the player interact with the environment in real-time. Holding your smartphone up, you will have to shoot goals appearing from anywhere around you. This is pretty simple gaming, of course, but there is a chance for such a gameplay concept.

Finally, we may even have a gaming session with wearable UI such as Google Glass where you don't even need to hold up a console or device, and playing with a game almost feels like you are on the floor in the gaming world.

5. Cloud Gambling

With more faster and reliable internet connections, the technology of cloud computing has started to get some momentum. The Sims creator Will Wright embraces the notion of cloud gambling as an essential part of the future of this industry. To begin with, the gambling industry sees it as an opportunity to create games as easy to access as movies and music.

With Cloud Gambling, we need not wait forever to get updates to high-quality games. It is all from the cloud and all we have to do is the link to it with a stable online connection and play to our heart's content. Games are also cheaper and more easily accessible via computers and even tablet computers. How much longer want we wait for this? In August 2012, Sony has purchased Gaikai that the world's biggest and most widespread cloud gambling agency for about $380 million and is predicted to integrate it into Playstation 4. So, not long, fingers crossed.


They say forecasts about how technology will grow in the future have always been inaccurate because we can never really predict how we may deviate from the intended use of the original creation.

Nevertheless, it's still delightful to know that the gaming business is heading towards uncharted land, constantly exploring and pushing the limit. As for me personally, I'm one who would rather take a backseat and take pleasure in seeing how future games will unfold themselves!
