Although cloud streaming is often hailed as the future of gaming, Google’s recent announcement that it will shut down its cloud gaming service, Google Stadia, signals a number of issues that will prevent gaming in the cloud to really take over from traditional console and PC. setups.


Google Stadia allows users to play major video game titles via streaming on devices that otherwise wouldn’t have the hardware capabilities to do so, such as regular smartphones, tablets or laptops. A number of other similar cloud gaming services exist, such as Amazon Luna and GeForce Now, operating on subscription models. While this idea sounds promising, Google Stadia failed to take off with gamers, leading to its shutdown announcement. Any of these forays are unlikely to be any more successful than Google’s attempt, as each service has the same issues that make it unattractive to gamers.

Cloud gaming comes with latency and cost issues

A huge problem with cloud gaming has to do with latency – or lag, as it’s more commonly known – which refers to the response delays experienced during gameplay. existing latency only increases, as players require a lot more server resources. This is extremely unattractive not only for competitive gamers, but also for anyone who wants a smooth experience, especially in fast-paced online games like shooters. Some argue that as technology advances these lag issues will be less significant, but this line of thinking is one that only proves the digital divide. Not everyone who plays video games has access to reliable high-speed internet connections, and even where the infrastructure for these services is available, there are issues with data caps limiting the Internet use.

Also, while cloud gaming seems more affordable, as gamers don’t have to buy a dedicated gaming machine and can play on whatever technology they already have, the reality is that gamers will have to shell out quite a bit. money to pay for these premium services. In addition to the subscription fees for the cloud gaming services themselves, users face higher internet bills.

Additionally, as cloud gaming services become more popular, it is possible that, as TV shows and movies become exclusive to a particular streaming service, game selection will be limited by agreements between various services and game studios. While console-specific games are nothing new, it goes one step further as gamers may need to subscribe to various cloud gaming services to play a particular game. It could also lead to wider regional locking, which could encourage gamers to buy services like VPNs to access games that aren’t available to them. At this point, it begs the question of how much cheaper cloud gaming really is.

The future of cloud gaming services is uncertain

Another huge limitation of cloud gaming services is that there is no guarantee as to how long these services will last. Google Stadia only launched in 2019, but will shut down completely in January 2023, giving it a lifespan of less than four years. The uncertain life expectancy of these services not only threatens gamers who like to replay old games, but also poses a huge risk to any gamer who invests time in their games. Those who play games that allow for a highly personalized experience will want to stay away from these services, as it’s unclear if it’s possible to save their data if these services ever shut down. PokemonThe infamous Shiny Hunters, gamers who painstakingly design their perfect in-game worlds, and anyone who plays farming simulators are just a few examples of gamers who could be devastated by situations like this.

Although technology has come a long way in the history of gaming, the issues at the heart of cloud gaming will likely prevent the average gamer from subscribing to one of these services. Of course, gaming rigs don’t come cheap and neither do dedicated gaming consoles. However, building a PC allows for price flexibility. There has also been an increase in more affordable versions of consoles, such as the Switch Lite and Xbox One S.

For gamers with dedicated machines, there’s nothing stopping them from visiting old save files, even decades later. Google Stadia’s shutdown proves how uncertain that possibility is for people trying their luck on cloud gaming. Ultimately, while promising, cloud gaming can never truly replace traditional gaming machines.

Amazon is providing an Xbox One pre-order link for the Resident Evil 4 remake, confirming that the game will be available to play on the console.


Amazon’s pre-order list for the Resident Evil 4 remake has confirmed that the game will be available on Xbox One alongside the other current-gen consoles.


According to r/GamingLeaksAndRumors, Amazon recently listed an Xbox One version of the game for pre-order with a placeholder image on the box. Reddit user Lucaz82 shared the link to the games list and explained the importance of this discovery. “This has been confirmed for PS4 but not Xbox One. It looks like it’s coming to the latter now,” the user wrote. He also shared a link to Dusk Golem’s Twitter, confirming that “the game was always intended for last-gen consoles.”

Resident Evil 4 Remake console confusion

The remake’s pre-order availability was also posted on Twitter. The original tweet claimed that the game was only supposed to be available for current gen consoles and PS4, but Golem cleared up the confusion in their retweet. “I’m not going to say too much, but Capcom [has] chosen to be a little weird with console stuff for Resident Evil Village and now RE:4,” the tweet read. “Just FYI, RE:4 was always planned for PS4/PS5, Xbox One/Xbox Series, PC, the way they publicly announce it is kind of weird.”

The user explained why the listing exists without a public announcement. “For the record, Amazon’s boxart is a placeholder, but most likely these pages are pre-prepared as pre-orders will likely increase after the Resident Evil Showcase in a few weeks,” Golem wrote.

Capcom originally announced that the remake would only be available on PlayStation 5 and Xbox S/X consoles. During a Tokyo Game Show, the company recently revealed that it would be adding a PlayStation 4 version to its development, but it didn’t say if the Xbox One would be included in this change. While Golem claimed that these games would still be part of the development process, it seemed like there was a marketing reason behind Capcom’s decision to schedule these announcements later.

The Resident Evil Showcase is slated for October 2022, and Capcom plans to share updates, trailers, and more for the next release. All the game development details will likely be worked out during this showcase to add to the excitement of the Resident Evil 4 release of the remake. Many insiders have determined that the highly anticipated remake is darker and scarier than the original 2005 Nintendo GameCube release.

Resident Evil 4 the remake will launch on March 24, 2023.

Nintendo confirms the shutdown of another service on its Wii U and 3DS platforms, further stripping the systems of older features.


nintendo seems determined to end its two previous-gen consoles, and the Wii U and 3Ds are expected to lose another aspect of online connectivity in about a month. According to Nintendo’s North American customer support site, the image sharing service for its eighth-generation console and handheld will be discontinued on October 25, 2022, meaning users will no longer be able to post game screenshots directly to Facebook and Twitter. of their systems.

GAMER VIDEO OF THE DAY

Ultimately, this probably won’t affect many players; the Nintendo Switch has already outsold the PlayStation 4 just five years after its launch, and the console has mostly supplanted Nintendo’s older consoles. Also, mobile technology is much more advanced than it was in the early 2010s when the Wii U and 3DS were launched, which means most gamers would probably choose to take a photo of the screen of their system instead of delving into the less intuitive image. sharing interface.

RELATED: Gamer Creates Impressive 3DS Emulator Using Steam Deck

Still, it’s probably disappointing for some fans to see Nintendo cut out the facets that make its consoles unique, no matter how outdated. Image sharing became a non-trivial part of the previous console generation, and the all-new PS4 share button at the time was a big part of the marketing campaign before the console’s launch in 2013. Of course, the image-sharing services available on Wii U and 3DS weren’t quite as robust or ubiquitous, but they represented a first for Nintendo that will now be almost completely forgotten.

This comes just months before the planned shutdown of the Nintendo eShop on the Wii U and 3DS, a controversial move by Nintendo that was officially announced in February 2022. Preparing for the eShop to shut down on these consoles began in August, and while those who have made purchases on the software will retain access to their digital titles, new purchases will no longer be possible at the end of March 2023.

Nintendo made an equally controversial decision by choosing to shut down access to the Wii Shop Channel in 2019, ending the availability of hundreds of titles that were only released digitally for the platform. What some see as the publisher’s continued disregard for legacy content has inspired increased interest in video game preservation among fans, and, although the shutdown of a little-used image-sharing service on older consoles don’t cause the same kind of anger, but it’s nevertheless a small aspect of a trend that some consider disappointing.

Yakuza series rebrands itself as Like A Dragon, unveils three new games for 2023 and beyond

RGG Studio’s Yakuza series has always been called Like a Dragon in Japan, and now localized versions of future games in the series will follow. Beyond the name change, we learned of three new titles in the Like a Dragon series: Ishin!, the long-awaited localization of Yakuza’s samurai spin-off, Like a Dragon 8, and a spin-off featuring Kazuma Kiryu.

Video games are constantly progressing. The graphics are getting more realistic and fantastic day by day, the gameplay is getting smoother, and the plots have become so heart-touching that there is hardly a franchise that doesn’t have a movie adaptation or of television series in preparation.

Today, the video game industry is worth more than the music and film industries combined. So why are people suddenly worried that he’s heading towards the endgame?

The reason is that they have reason to be alarmed. Although people have embraced video games during the pandemic to shield themselves from the monotony of shutdowns, the industry once hailed as “recession-proof” is showing some hesitation.

Leaving the social restrictions of the Covid-19 years behind has left people eager to open up to real experiences. At the same time, the video game industry is hampered by supply chain issues and constant delays in the release of titles.

Vladimir Putin is also to blame for the industry’s woes. When Russia invaded Ukraine, Moscow halted any financial recovery the world might have enjoyed from the coronavirus crisis. Instead, national banks around the world issued warnings of soaring inflation. There are even whispers of a recession on the doorstep.

The cost of living crisis means consumers are likely to spend significantly less on gaming hardware, software and accessories this year, according to Mat Piscatella, executive director of research firm NPD Group.

Together, these factors are expected to cause video game sales to decline in 2022 for the first time in years. For a sector that has gone from strength to strength over the past decade, this could be a serious confidence breaker.

The 2010s propelled the video game industry into the stratosphere

The gaming industry is a very different beast than it was 10 years ago. As technology develops, the accessibility and interactivity of gaming software and hardware also increases.

The 2010s saw the introduction of some key gaming moments that pushed the video game industry into the stratosphere. The future relies heavily on four major trends: game subscriptions, mobile games, esports and cloud gaming.

Let’s start with game subscriptions. It’s hard to imagine games without subscription services in 2022, but before 2010 they weren’t nearly as widespread. Playstation Now, Xbox Game Pass, and EA Access are just a few of the paid monthly/annual services that offer content to gamers. Google Stadia also falls into this category, but Alphabet has scaled back the project over the past year.

Mobile gaming is another key area for the industry. Mobile gaming in the 2010s moved away from just playing Snake on your Nokia brick phone. Tencent Games’ PUBG Mobile battle royale scored 100 million downloads in the first four months of its life. Pokemon Go has taken the world from its homes and traveled the world to find AR Pokemon and raised over $400 billion in lifetime revenue.

“Mobiles now have a very strong affinity with gaming, giving users the ability to play games wherever they are,” said Arunabh Madhur, regional vice president and head of EMEA business at the internet technology company. SHAREit Group. Verdict.

“It has also become more accessible for consumers to use mobile for gaming instead of purchasing additional hard copies of games and video game consoles.”

Esports is a third area of ​​fierce competition, both between the players participating in the games and the companies that develop them.

Competitive gaming is now at the forefront of mainstream culture. Games like Fortnite and CS GO hold global competitions with multi-million dollar prizes. American YouTuber Kyle Giersdorf caused a media frenzy when he pocketed $3 million at a Fortnite World Cup aged just 16.

Cloud gaming is the fourth area for gaming aficionados to follow. The 2010s saw more tech heavyweights enter the industry and drive cloud gaming forward. Google discontinued its cloud gaming service in late 2019, which allowed gamers to stream titles directly through the cloud without the need for hardware with powerful specs.

So why is the industry faltering now?

The gaming industry has grown over the past decade, culminating in an explosive boom during the pandemic. Combined sales of games, consoles and subscriptions totaled $191 billion worldwide in 2021. According to Ampere Analysis, that is expected to drop 1.2% to $188 billion this year.

[There] was a distinct shift during Covid where more people from more diverse groups played games,” said Simonetta Lulli, CEO of mobile game publisher GameHouse. Verdict.

However, things are changing. People are spending less money on games than they were last year. Some analysts attributed the decrease to the company coming out of lockdowns and getting out more.

Gaming was a vital entertainment channel for many people during the Covid-19 shutdowns,” said GlobalData analyst Rupantar Guha. Verdict.

“The industry has seen a rapid influx of new users in 2020, which has led to revenue growth. While the trend has continued into 2021, it’s no surprise that the momentum is slowing in 2022 as the impact of the pandemic subsides.

It certainly makes sense for console gamers who were cooped up indoors and playing at home. But mobile gaming, which generated around $119 billion in revenue in 2021, actually suffered the biggest setback, according to NPD Group.

A number of factors can be seen for the decline of the whole industry. Global inflation is the most obvious. With the rising cost of living, the purse strings are getting tighter and tighter.

Another is the gaming hardware supply issues that heavily impacted Sony’s Playstation 5 launch. The manufacturing speed needed to keep up with demand was impossible to achieve due to the shortage of chips, making the console an extremely difficult piece of kit for gamers. hands on it.

The shortages also hit PC gamers who wanted to upgrade their machines, as graphics cards and CPUs were also in short supply.

“Covid-19 has impacted gaming supply chains, which need to be stabilized as the pandemic is brought under control,” Guhar says.

“For example, game companies need to address the shortage of chips that power gaming devices and speed up critical game art design units to launch delayed games.”

It’s true that 2021 saw one of the most delay-filled years in gaming history will have had a ripple effect on 2022. A survey of over 3,000 industry professionals revealed that 44% of them had to delay a game during the pandemic. .

Can players keep hope for the future?

Despite all these obstacles and setbacks for the industry, many analysts expect the industry to continue to grow. If some notably put the controller down after the pandemic, some should have stayed.

The global gaming market is expected to be worth $321 billion by 2026, according to PwC’s Global Entertainment and Media Outlook.

“The games’ widespread popularity and potentially lucrative revenue opportunities will drive the industry forward,” Guhar said.

But to keep the future bright for games, Guhar believes companies need to “invest in disruptive themes to ensure long-term growth.”

This comes as companies like Meta and its subsidiary Oculus as well as Sony continue to innovate and release virtual reality (VR) headsets, which are becoming an increasingly popular way to play.

VR gaming was worth a respectable $1.1 billion in 2020, but analysts have predicted the market will reach $2.4 billion by 2024, Plarium reports. It’s despite the skepticism that VR gaming has been hailed as the next step in entertainment since the 1980s, but the revolution has yet to materialize.

Disruptive themes like virtual reality and the metaverse present their own challenges for the video game industry. Safety being one of the most urgent.

“Gaming companies also need to invest in cybersecurity,” Guhar said, “gaming is increasingly digital, which by default attracts hackers to access user data and money.”

As the challenges continue to mount in the industry, gamers continue to flock in their millions to the latest release. Whether on console, mobile, PC or VR, it’s safe to say that the gaming industry isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.

How Mobile Gaming Became More Efficient Than Console Gaming https://vietcong-game.net/how-mobile-gaming-became-more-efficient-than-console-gaming/ Wed, 14 Sep 2022 05:24:31 +0000 https://vietcong-game.net/how-mobile-gaming-became-more-efficient-than-console-gaming/ Mobile phones and consoles have revolutionized the gaming industry and represent technological evolution and improvements over the past decades.

Mobile phones and consoles have revolutionized the gaming industry and represent technological evolution and improvements over the past decades. Consoles were introduced shortly after video games became popular in the late 80s and currently it is a massive multi-billion dollar industry.

But mobile gaming has never been a strong contender; it was a looker until Steve Jobs announced the original iPhone. Before that, mobile phones were not even considered for serious games and now mobile games hold more than 50% market share and all this has been done in the last decade. Mobile gaming has come a long way and it is currently the market leader, having taken over both PC and console gaming. We will discuss some reasons for the success of mobile gaming over console gaming:

More smartphone sales

Statistics show that Sony has managed to sell around 53 million units of the PlayStation 4. This number may seem huge, but if we compare it to smartphones, this number stands no chance. Yes, there are other game consoles like Xbox and Nintendo Wii, but they still cannot beat mobile phones in terms of sales.

It is estimated that each year Apple sells around 220 million iPhones. Compared to 53 million, 220 million is a huge number and Apple is not the only manufacturer in the smartphone market, there are many other manufacturers like Samsung, Oppo, Vivo, etc. who sell even more units.

These numbers clearly show that smartphone sales outnumber console sales because smartphones can perform multiple functions unlike a console which is only used for gaming. This led to a huge increase in sales of smartphones, compared to game consoles.

Affordability factor

The accessibility factor cannot be overlooked. You will find a smartphone in all price ranges, be it the $200 range or the $1000 range. This allows even people on a budget to have a smartphone, while you can’t buy a game console at a low price. Smartphones are not only affordable, they are becoming a necessity for many due to their various functions.

This smartphone affordability is a huge advantage that smartphones have over consoles. Anyone can own a smartphone, even a person working on a daily wage and they can play their favorite classic games like LonelyScrabble, Chess, etc for free without buying CDs or anything.

Powerful hardware

A few years ago, smartphones had normal hardware, but as technology advanced, smartphone penetration increased, and the need for powerful smartphones became apparent, mobile phones started to become more powerful. We now have 5 nanometer chipsets available in the market like Apple’s A15 Bionic and Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 which is actually a 4 nanometer chipset. These have allowed smartphones to reach a higher level of performance in terms of graphics, speed and processing power and developers are taking advantage of this higher level of performance to create more realistic and demanding mobile games. in graphics.

In the coming years, as there will be more advancements in the smartphone industry, we might even see such powerful smartphones which can surpass consoles in terms of gaming performance.

Evolution of mobile games

There was a time when mobile games only had casual titles like Candy Crush Saga, Spider SolitaireAngry Birds, Cut The Rope, etc. to offer, but as mobile technology improved and mobile phones started to get better and better, mobile developers started developing heavy game titles with better graphics and interesting gameplay that could satisfy the users longer.
