Gamer Portability

A desire for authentic gaming prompts more engaging mobile add-ons

Implications - While mobile gaming provides a more practical method for on-the-go play, smartphone apps often lack the excitement and physical interaction of consoles and gaming systems. Seeking to add a more authentic feel to portable play, consumers are turning to mobile add-ons that help add traditional gaming features to compact, cellular devices. Touchscreen stickers and console attachments combine conventional aspects of gaming with the desire for more convenient, and accessible methods of everyday entertainment.
