50 At-Home Gaming Innovations

From Compact Gaming PC Systems to Art-Based Mobile Games

— May 12, 2017 — Tech
These at-home gaming innovations range from tech accessories to actual game releases that can be enjoyed via a traditional console or one's mobile device. When it comes to home consoles. products like the GIGABYTE 'BRIX' video gaming PC are gaining attention among those seeking a powerful system that is also budget-friendly. This particular product was unveiled at CES 2017 in Las Vegas and offers impressive gaming capabilities at a portable size, making it ideal for those likely to game while on the go.

Additional systems gaining praise from fans include the Nintendo Switch VR System -- consisting of removable controllers and a virtual reality headset -- and the Gamller gaming controller which features an analog, ergonomic design that is translated onto one's mobile device.

When looking at recent game releases, standouts include 'Islands: Non-Places,' an art-based mobile game, along with investment company British Land's augmented reality Easter egg hunt game that was designed as a promotional stunt for kids. Lastly, retro-themed arcade games are on the rise with a notable example being the hunter-themed Sure Shot HD which transforms any screen into an interactive gaming arena.
