One of the first areas that is worth mentioning is within casinos. They have long been so popular across the world, but we are now seeing many of these closing, due to the growth of the online seen. You can see that credit cards are still accepted at some sites, which is one reason that the popularity has increased for the online game. On top of this, the bonuses and promotions that are given for online play is now incredible, whereas in land-based casinos you are rarely given anything. These are all drivers as to why we are seeing this major shift. On top of this, virtual reality is now slowly but surely being implemented into online casinos, which will provide a life-like experience and could yet impact land-based casinos even more. It will be fascinating to see the impact in the coming years and further shows just how much technology is impacting different industries.
But it is not just in this area of gaming that we have seen this, and gaming has now seen the competitive seen become huge. These have now become world-wide events with numbers now far surpassing that of many major sports around the world. This just shows how far the industry has come, with millions of people tuning in online in order to watch the best gamers in the world take each other on, better known as esports. This is something that ten years ago, people would have laughed at but further shows the impact of technology and how it is shifting people’s behaviours.
Technology has also meant that more and more innovative ideas and creations and being pushed into the gaming world, from the previously mentioned virtual reality to now next generation consoles. More and more products are only set to be released for years to come and we can expect the industry to be taken to new heights!
