Mobile games graphics could rival that of current consoles

EA has high hopes for next generation mobile games

Major game publisher Electronic Arts believes that the next generation of mobile games will have the same graphical capabilities of games for the Xbox 360 and the Playstation 3. This would have been a bold claim, if mobile technology had remained relatively stagnant over the past few years. Technology has, however, advanced at a very rapid pace and modern smartphones and tablets are equipped with hardware that could rival the current generation of consoles.

Mobile games manage to gain popularity with modest graphics

Mobile games are already quite popular among consumers, so much so that they have begun to cut into the sales of console games in some parts of the world. These games have not won consumers over by offering high quality visuals, however, as most mobile games are designed with very simple, approachable graphical content. The modest graphics of most mobile games is directly linked to the hardware capabilities of smartphones and tablets. Until very recently, these devices have not been designed with gaming in mind, thus did not boast of high performance graphics processing units (GPUs).

Because smartphones and tablets have become major entertainment platforms for many consumers, device makers have been working on making these devices more accommodating of mobile games. Electronic Arts notes that the progress these devices have made in terms of graphical power has improved significantly over the past two years and could lead to a new generation of mobile games that provide a visually stunning experience as well as one that is enjoyable for consumers from a gameplay standpoint.

Graphics engines could signal a bright future for mobile games

Electronic Arts notes that many of the graphics engines that it uses for console games can be modified to be used on mobile devices. These engines are common in games that have been made for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 consoles, but have seen minimal use in the mobile sector. As these engines become more available to developers and help usher in a new generation of smartphones and tablets, mobile games may soon become a much larger and more prolific part of the game industry in the near future.

As mobile games become ever more popular, the game industry is beginning to take steps to reach out to consumers with smartphones and tablets. Mobile platforms are beginning to become more important to game developers and publishers, largely because these platforms represent a very lucrative and active market. Electronic Arts, one of the titans of the game industry, has recently begun showing strong interest in mobile games. The company has announced that its Forstbite game engine will soon be optimized for mobile devices.

New engine could help EA establish strong presence in mobile space

EA has announced a new variant of its game engine called Frostbit Go. This game engine is being designed specifically for mobile devices. The company believes that this new mobile-centric engine will give developers a way to excel on mobile platforms. The Frostbite engine has often been praised for its capabilities and is the favored tool of DiCE, the famed developer behind EA’s Battlefied franchise. Making the Frostbite engine available for mobile games may help EA establish a strong presence in the mobile space.

Frostbite Go to focus on mobile performance

Frostbite Go is being developed with performance in mind. EA is eager to ensure that the mobile version of the acclaimed game engine is capable of bringing the experiences that gamers have come to expect across all major platforms. While mobile devices have yet to catch up to the technological performance of consoles, EA believes that the Frostbite Go engine will be a step in the right direction for mobile games, enabling developers to create higher quality titles that will enthrall consumers for extended periods of time.

EA may soon become a dominant force in mobile games

Mobile games are becoming a more important factor for the game industry. Electronic Arts is not the only company making a push into the mobile sector, but it is among the companies that have the resources necessary to quickly establish a commanding presence in this emerging market. Mobile games may help EA reclaim much of the favor that the company has lost among consumers due to recent missteps in business.
