New Gaming Tech advances redefining the gaming industry and enhancing player experience as innovation and player appetite remains robust.

Here in the 21st Century, gaming has been redefined by constant and continual technological innovation. One of the most successful digital industries, the gaming industry will reach a staggering $545.98 billion by 2028 (according to Global Newswire) and gaming experiences across the board are more popular now than they’ve ever been.  

And what’s powering these gaming experiences? Amazing advances in gaming tech, that’s what!  

iGaming Technology 

As one of the largest and most lucrative sectors of the global gaming industry, one major advance in gaming technology made during the 21st century is that of online casino gaming. From classic online spins to live dealer games, iGaming is one of the most comprehensive and tech-savvy gaming markets, popular with amateur gamers and pro gamers alike.  

The early days of iGaming were defined by clunky software downloads and limited gaming experiences. Now, however, there’s a whole host of innovative gaming experiences on offer and the opportunity to play for big money prizes.  

Mobile Gaming 

It would be impossible to list the greatest advancements in gaming tech without talking about mobile gaming. The advent of smartphones suddenly made it possible to play attractive looking games on the go a decade or so ago, but since then, this is a market that has transformed significantly thanks to tech innovations.  

Smartphones today are essentially mobile computers, packing in high-powered processors and graphics capabilities that even some retro gaming consoles would struggle to compete with. And that’s to say nothing of the gaming-dedicated smartphones that are now freely available. Coupled with console-worthy games like Genshin Impact, it’s no wonder that mobile gaming is shaping up to be the future of the industry.  

Cloud Gaming 

Remember the days where you had to wait for 12 months before you could purchase that latest instalment in your favourite video game franchise? And that was only if you were one of the lucky ones to get your hands on a copy before they all sold out and took weeks or months to be restocked. Nowadays, video gaming is dominated by digital streaming services and the latest advancement in this field comes in the form of cloud gaming.  

Unlike streaming services that are limited to a single device, such as PC game downloads purchased at the Steam store, cloud gaming services can be accessed by a whole host of devices provided you have a strong data connection. Just like the popular cloud file-sharing services that came before, cloud gaming makes use of massive remote servers to host games, meaning that you’re no longer limited by the amount of memory your laptop or console has.  

Virtual Reality 

While VR still has its detractors, nevertheless the technology has made some huge leaps and bounds in recent years. Affordable VR headsets are now a thing, thanks to manufacturers like Oculus finally coming down to earth and releasing new models that are more in line with terrestrial prices and there are some big-name video games that are available in VR editions.  

Beyond the video gaming market, VR is also playing a role in future-proofing iGaming and there are even accessories that can transform your mobile into a VR-ready device. Meanwhile, thanks to innovations like Facebook’s Meta, it won’t be long before we’re all gaming, working and even socialising in virtual reality environments.
