Top 3 Reasons Why The Future Of Gaming Is All About Mobile Platforms

Smartphones gaming  experience

Nowadays, smart phones have taken the shape of gaming consoles, offering all kinds of functionalities, right in people’s palms. Whether in an aeroplane or in the back seat of a car seat, someone is on his/her phone, playing a mobile game.

 

Going by the figures revealed by App Annie, 33% of all the app downloads are games and 74% of the entire spending on mobile devices is on games today (as per 2018 figures). Furthermore, people are more aware and well-informed these days. For instance, you can easily improve smartphone gaming experience by making some tweaks here and there. All in all, future gaming is expected to be all about mobile platforms. Here are 3 prominent reasons why.

 

Free initiation

It’s the casual gamer that constitutes the majority of people who play mobile games these days. And it’s them that the gaming companies are going after. However, it’s also a well-known fact that casual gamers aren’t very forthcoming when it comes to spending money on these games, especially when they are uncertain about playing them in the future.

 

Some of the well-known mobile games such as ‘Fate/Grand Order’, ‘League of Legends’ etc. are all free-to-play, and offer lots of in-app purchases. Such tactic is referred to as ‘free-to-start’ or free initiation, which gives gamers the freedom to invest money into the game later, if they want to. The in-app purchases are incentivised too, with the help of seasonal discounts, rollout specials etc. drawing more and more people to such mobile games.

Porting to mobile platforms

E3 has proven to be the biggest console and PC gaming event of the gaming industry over a period of time. However, mobile phone gaming gradually taking over from console gaming, has resulted in mobile platform assuming a more prominent role in this conference too. Hence, it is evident where the future trends in the gaming industry will come from.

 

The recently released ‘Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles’, the remastered version of the GameCube classic, was launched for Nintendo Switch, PS4 and you guessed it right, iOS and Android too. It isn’t the first time that a console game has been successfully ported to the mobile platform. We have seen all kinds of titles such as ‘Chrono Trigger’, ‘The World Ends With You’ and many more following this progression. And why not, after all the mobile is the best way to reach a huge market of gamers.

 

eSports

What began as casual gaming has evolved into a new way of making living for a great multitude of gamers. A large number of gaming enthusiasts participate in competitive competitions today, bagging anywhere from tens of thousands to millions of dollars!

 

Although it’s a fairly PC-dominated space, the past few years have seen mobile eSports growing at a rapid pace, and gradually becoming as big as the conventional eSports. ‘Summoners War’, ‘Arena of Valor’ and ‘Call of Duty’ are some extremely popular mobile games that have cemented their place in the eSports industry.
