G10 Global Wonder What the Gaming/Gadget Market Will be Like in 20 Years?

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - July 1, 2011) - G10 Global are enjoying watching the competition between Microsoft, Nintendo, Sony and Apple that results in enormous technological advancements constantly being announced, and they wonder what the gaming/ gadget world will be like in 20 years?

We entered the eighth generation of video game consoles in February this year when Nintendo jumped on the 3D bandwagon and released the Nintendo 3DS, now Sony will aim to combat the 3DS with the release of another handheld, the Playstation Vita which is due to be released towards the end of 2011. Apple's release of the iPad and the iPad 2 has resulted in what seems like a further 200 tablets entering the market and Nintendo announced their new console, the Wii U this June; the first eighth generation home video game console. Sony has also announced that the PlayStation 4 is in development, the X-Box Kinect for the 360 is getting great reviews, G10 Global are exhausted just looking at all the options but wonder what our children's children will be playing?

In 2006, the Nintendo Wii changed the gaming world by getting older people to play video games with their grandchildren. Our society today has had large issues with video games stopping our children from going outside and being active so gaming companies came out with games where you have to be active to play, we then had issues of children being isolated and not playing with others and inter-web gaming in groups began, we then had the family being divided at Christmas, but this is no longer the case as everyone is getting involved. Even trips to the gym have been replaced by zumba in the living room, and the days of playing Monopoly and Scrabble have been replaced by Wii bowling and Super Mario Kart. G10 Global wonders who will be next to release machinery that changes our entire family dynamic?

Living room entertainment just got one step closer to having a true three-dimensional virtual environment: the new Wii U tablet remote control scans a virtual world in 360 degrees as the user moves it in orbit around his or her body. The brand new technology opens exciting possibilities for not just gaming, but for the exploding tablet market and our bonding families. G10 asks not only what will we be playing on in 20 years but what role will these game consoles be playing in our lives?
