Gaming Software News

Developments in gaming software have powered growth and made the video game industry one of the largest in the entertainment sector. It is an industry that is dominated by the next big thing though, so it is constantly evolving. Stay up-to-date with everything that is happening in gaming software news with the free Wiser daily email. Gaming software traces its origins back to the 1970s, and today it is a multi-billion dollar industry. It has two main branches - console gaming and mobile device gaming. In terms of hardware, the console gaming market is dominated by Sony's Playstation, Microsoft's Xbox and Nintendo's Wii. But when it comes to software the industry is much more diverse, particularly when you look at gaming software on mobile devices. It has been a huge growth area in recent years, and that trend is set to continue. Other developments to expect in the future include virtual reality gaming and augmented reality gaming. Software designers are also dealing with changing demographics, including the trends of increasing numbers of older gamers and female gamers.
