With the introduction of smartphones, content, graphics and programming is slowly shifting base to mobiles. Because more and more people around the world are buying and using mobile phones, it only makes sense for businesses to create stuff that mobile users can use on their phones. This is a new market that is yet to be explored in its full potential, but the game has started.
Video game companies such as Nintendo will face competition from mobile games, as they stick to portable gaming devices. Mobile games are growing larger as gamers will soon have access to game franchises through multiple screens.
Moreover, constant improvement in technology and adaption to new technologies is shifting base constantly. In this age of major technological changes, newer mediums of communication are being created. Another startling fact is that more and more users expect a device to multi-task. To use a device just to play video games is not enough anymore. Mobile phones offer multiple services, and that is the demand of the day.
Inexpensive (as compared to PCs) and mobility are the two major advantages of mobile phones that lead users to stick to them. With mobile games, gamers get more for less.
Video games are no longer the territory of men. Kids, women and older people are also hooked to video games specifically because they cater to this market. Games such as Angry Birds are loved by kids and women. The gaming world has evolved over the years, and is still growing in different directions and in different ways.
