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.

Square Enix sets sights on mobile games

Mobile games prove attractive for Square Enix

Acclaimed game developer and publisher Square Enix has suffered through a turbulent year. The famed Japanese company had once been considered a titan of the game industry, but has struggled in the wake of the release of several lackluster games that have not performed well in any market. Even though the company’s most recent releases, such as Tomb Raider and Sleeping Dogs, have received critical acclaim, these titles have failed to meet the company’s lofty expectations. The poor performance of Square Enix’s console and PC games may be pushing the company to show more interest in mobile games.

Company continues to struggle with criticism from consumers

In the past, Square Enix has received praise for providing gamers with quality experiences that were almost impossible to find elsewhere. The company has a tendency to push the boundaries of modern console technology in an attempt to provide gamers with enjoyable experiences that have been difficult to find elsewhere. In recent years, the company has been met with increasing difficulty in this endeavor, often receiving criticism for focusing too much on the technology aspects of gaming and not enough on the actual experience of gaming.

The company has begun to show its interest in bringing the console experience to the mobile space, effectively improving the quality of mobile games significantly in the future. The company has plans to publish mobile games in the future and intends to focus on games that deliver a quality and technologically advanced experience to consumers.

Much of the game industry has begun to show interest in the mobile space. Mobile games have been drawing consumers away from traditional gaming platforms for some time, but have only recently begun cutting into the sales of traditional consoles. Square Enix is not t he only company with plans to take mobile games more seriously and a new focus on these kinds of games may help the company recover much of the support it has lost among consumers.
