The October 2018 gaming innovations feature the gambit of retro console revivals and streamer-focused gaming peripherals. Developed by Razer, the introduction of the Kiyo webcam and Ifrit showcase a new focus on the video game streamer. The Ifrit essentially functions as a gaming headset, but the low profile nature ensures the players face is always in view and unobstructed by chunky ear cups and bulk microphones. Designed to work alongside the headset, the Kiyo webcam captures Full HD 30fps resolution and comes with a built-in ring light to ensure clear and perfectly lit content.
Also featured on this list is a new nostalgic game console, this time focusing on the iconic Sony PlayStation. Complete with 20 classic games, this retro console is also 45% smaller than the original unit and features an HDMI port for connectivity with modern TVs.
Finally, the October 2018 gaming list also includes an incredibly progressive indie game entitled 'the earth is a better person than me.' This indie title explores aspects of sexuality, self-worth, and personal thoughts, all while presenting itself with a distinct and eye-catching aesthetic.
