From Gold-Plated Gaming Consoles to VR Board Games

 - May 29, 2016
The top May 2016 gaming ideas reveal a shift that's happening in the world of entertainment. Daily advances in technology are making room for all new types of peripherals and interactive experiences to be designed, giving video game creators the chance to challenge the way players experience gameplay. One of the best examples of how gaming is being integrated into other forms of entertainment includes the reboot of Twilight Zone, which has been announced as a hybrid that falls somewhere between a movie and a game.

The continued rise in mobile gaming is causing console creators to offer limited-edition products and special bundles to entice a new generation of gamers. For instance, the value-focused Xbox One Spring Bundle was offered for a limited time in April and the Analogue Nt NES video game console was launched with a collectible 24-Karat Gold exterior finish.
