Immersive Gaming

Larger-than-life game systems provide a full-body and mind experience

Implications - Video games that require the use of only a hand-held controller may not be enough to attract consumers anymore. Technology is paving the way for more full-body games and those that offer incredible simulations, from gigantic gaming floors to sensitive virtual simulation games. Thus, the world of gaming is quickly changing and stimulating the senses is becoming an integral part of the gaming experience.
