Adaptive Gaming

DIYers can't stop customizing their consoles and controllers

Implications - While any new gaming console is sure to be coveted by avid gamers, being new just isn’t enough. That console is most likely going to be adapted and modified at the whim of the DIY gamer who desires customization. Serious gamers aren’t afraid to turn the run-of-the-mill console or controller into something truly different and one-of-a-kind. To this end, even customization attempts by major gaming brands—such as themed consoles and limited-edition systems—might not be enough.
