What is the next step for mobile gaming?

Technology has continued to grow from strength to strength with the continual improvements of mobile phones, the introduction of tablets and the innovative design of Google Glass, but what is coming next for mobile gaming? One thing that most gamers are calling for is improved graphics, but it may be difficult to fetch the very best graphics to mobile devices without compromising the speed at which the game and device runs. One example could be the use of first-person shooters, and how this can be developed and controlled on mobile devices.

Increasing the graphic capabilities of any games – be it poker, multiplayer or simulation – would also mean increasing the memory and battery capabilities of the mobile devices used. There is nothing worse than being half way through a game and it stuttering and stopping, or your battery giving in and the screen going black. Most people are looking forward with a mixture of hope and scepticism to the days when you no longer have to carry chargers round with you when you’re nipping out for a few hours.

But what about hands free; is Google Glass the future of mobile gaming? Imagine walking along the street playing in a poker tournament and still being able to see everything and avoid walking into lampposts, or having your favourite multiplayer game in the corner of your vision and controlling it with your voice, leaving your hands free to do anything else needed.

Although there is of course the fact that Glass isn’t the most visually pleasing device and you might feel rather stupid walking down the street and looking as though you’re talking to yourself. However with it being the first generation it might just be too much for hearts to take when they want to do something, but the technology just isn’t that advanced yet.

Closer to the here and now though is the successful development of cross-platform gaming. Walking home playing football on your mobile or maybe a quick casino game, and being unable to pause and change it to your larger screen once indoors has long been the bane of many a gamer’s life. EA Casual Entertainment is one of several companies to announce they will be publishing games across various platforms allowing this magical transition to take place. Whatever the future of mobile gaming may be, for now you can follow the link and play at the best Poker tables around.

Comparing online gaming between tablets and mobile phones

Online gaming has become one of the major applications of mobile phones and tablets. As PC sales decline sharply, those of tablets and smartphones skyrocket and today most owners of mobile devices favor using their tablets rather than their desktops for playing games.

The fundamental difference between the latest generations of tablets and mobile phones is that while tablets have larger displays phones are easier to carry around. Or at least that is the general consensus, though there are signs that it is changing.
If you think back to the times before we used to carry mobile computing devices on which we organizer our business and social lives, you might recall the Filofax. The Filofax was the first and possibly most prestigious of personal organizers  Generally leather bound, it was a six ring loose leaf binder in which people kept their diary, event organizers  contact lists, personal information, maps, and many other things that today are typically kept on a mobile phone. During the 1980s, when everyone was or alluded to being a yuppie, carrying around a Filofax was a sign that you had arrived; that you were one of the in-crowd. It has the same social status as owning an iPhone had when few people owned one.

The point is, the Filofax was typically the size of today’s tablet. And everyone carried one around. So, once we get accustomed to the size of tablets we will all start carrying those around too, and we will think nothing of doing so. Once this happens, and it almost certainly will, the tablet will replace the mobile phone as the primary online gaming device. We will use it for playing online casino games at a mobile casino like Lucky Nugget, for playing online games with our friends, and for playing huge online multiplayer games that are today mostly associated with gaming consoles

AT&T Comes Up With a New Gaming Platform For Androids

AT&T, which is heavily investing into Google’s Android based phones is coming up with a new social gaming platform for these phones. This move happens to come as AT&T has lost its monolpoly over the Apple iPhone. OpenFeint video game network, which develops social games that help users on different platforms play against each other and chat at the same time is partnering with AT&T for building the gaming platform for Android phones. Along with playing and chatting, the social gaming platform would also allow interested users to create content.

Apparently, OpenFeint is Apple’s competitor on the social gaming platform. Apple has its own gaming platform called the Game Center which was last by Apple in September 2010 for the iPod Touch and iPhone. With AT&T losing its grip on Apple and the increasing popularity of mobile gaming, Android phones gain.

Sony NGP To Be Priced 299$?

According to rumors, the Sony NGP has been listed for a price of 299$. Sony unveiled their next generation play station portable this month in Tokyo and ever since there has been enough speculation about its price. Earlier, even gorumors reported that the NGP was going to cost 350$. There were other rumors that were doing round after the prototype was launched that the price of NGP was going to be 599$. But, Sony quickly dismissed it. But as per GameStop’s databases report, the NGP has been listed for 299$.

According to GameStop, the Nintendo 3DS is going to cost 249 $ which could have prompted Sony not to price the NGP too heavily. A 50$ difference in the prices of the twoi hand held consoles might also go down well with the gamers, if the rumor about the price were to be true.

Fingers crossed, fellow gamers.

Activision Axes Guitar Hero, DJ Hero and True Crime

The once very famous Guitar Hero and DJ Hero games have now been axed by Activision following the poor run of their last year’s release Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock. While the DJ Hero game has also seen huge losses and the chief executive of Activision, Eric Hirshberg has exclaimed that these games just cannot be made profitable considering today’s market demands. Another shocker was the shelving of True Crime: Hong Kong, the third in the Underworld Shooter Series. According to Hirshberg, the game just does not have the potential any more to grab gamers’ attention.

As a result of the above move from Activison almost 500 people are going to be rendered jobless while more than a 100 UK based companies involved in the Guitar Hero and the True Crime games are going to be severely affected.
