Mobile is the game console of the future? There are several years between each game console but our phones are updated every year and so is the hardware, do we have the future game console in our pocket already today?
When games are released today on console and PC it is a big snack ice cream and will probably be a good while. But our phones that we use daily get more and more power and if you test on games already on our phones we can see that the graphics and performance of these games are really something not many could have predicted just a few years ago.
Just a few years ago we were aware that an MMO (Massively Multiplayer Online) game like World of Warcraft was only possible to play on a PC, but already now the development has come so far that we have had the opportunity to take part in several great MMO games for our phones, imagine playing in a huge open world with their friends on the train, the bus, the room… yes, wherever you are with internet access on your phone.
But this is only the beginning and as both VR and AR are becoming more common in our phones, we already have two features built into the phone with the help of some accessories that are nowhere near the same costs that this would cost on either console or PC. With AR, the opportunities are huge and we have a lot to look forward to where there aren't really many boundaries but only the imagination that can limit us to a certain degree.
Playing at the casino has probably never been as big and free in a way as it is today where you no longer have to visit a casino but can easily play via your phone now too.
When it comes to playing on our phones we cannot directly complain that we do not have the time to be honest, how many of us do not have their phone into the toilet which is clearly a bad habit but still something we do daily to update us on social media or why not play any smaller and shorter games.
Our phones today are so much more than just checking facebook and instagram, we have the opportunity to actually turn our phones that we use every day into a game console, today the possibilities are not at all great when it comes to connecting to a bigger screen or tv but I suspect that this is also something that will develop over time where we will see more and more accessories for our phones and also the opportunity to connect ourselves to larger screens and play with others both online and also in the same sofa.
