Camera technology has made strong developments in the gaming industry in recent years, from the developments in interactive gaming such as the Xbox Kinect which offered fun games that were tracked and controlled by your own movements. A few years ago this is all that was really on offer in terms of virtual gameplay and it was very popular at the time with games like Kinectimals and Kinect adventures being a very popular family game that was definitely ahead of its time.
However in recent years there has been more and more new content being released including a PS4 compatible virtual reality headset. With the use of camera technology gamers can now immerse themselves in hyper realistic gameplay. With the use of a headset you literally are able to see what it would be like to play as the player in the game, why not test your aim at a first person shooter such as Superhot or maybe take a little virtual break and play Vacation simulator.
With the new advances that have happened so quickly in the last few years it is hard to predict how swiftly the gaming world will advance in the future. I would predict that very soon the quality of virtual gameplay is going to increase to be even more hyper realistic. Nowadays, although the quality is extremely immersive it is still recognisable as gaming animation, imagine in a few years time where you can literally see real life quality graphics from the comfort of your own home.
The possibilities are endless, here are some gameplay categories that are definitely going to be improved in terms of VR quality.
- Fantasy -RPG
- First person shooter
- Driving games
- Arcade games
- Simulation games
- City builder style games
- Puzzle and brain teasers
- Sports games
In terms of how we will play these virtual reality games the concept shouldn’t stray too much from how it is now. With virtual reality headsets and gauntlets being an effective means of immersive ness, there is no reason why it should change apart from improvements to the quality and realism. You can expect to see a high quality virtual reality headset that provides solid 360 degree viewing angles with realistic high definition graphics. The gauntlets or wands will be even more responsive and without any of those pesky bugs or issues.
Camera technology has undergone massive developments, cameras are getting smaller and more high quality meaning that a more professional standard can be easily achieved in terms of camera quality. Those developments in technology have also been implemented into the gaming world. Consoles are fitted with the highest quality cameras meaning that gameplay quality has improved. One of the most drastic improvements was seen with the Xbox Kinect, this was the first console where you could control characters without the need of holding some kind of sensor. This freedom to just sync your bodies to the game was a huge development offering users a very unique gaming experience. The Kinect was also marketed as a fitness tool much like the older Wii fit boards, it was believed that the Kinect could be used to get some exercise.
The gaming industry is an industry that is constantly changing in terms of what is popular, this can make it hard to know what is going to go down well with the public so when new releases come around they must be fresh and impactful.
The gaming world as a whole has undergone massive changes and improvements lately, it seems that each and every game has received an update recently. From console games to mobile games including AFK arena, a mobile game that challenges you to build an army, and updates have been made to the AFK arena codes to improve the overall experience of the game. Use these updated codes to gain access to new rewards such as diamonds that allow you to buy extra features and make the game a lot more interesting,easily.
Overall, camera technology is developing so much and so quickly that who knows what the future holds for virtual reality gaming. It’s only going to get much more mainstream with each and everyone having some form of virtual reality gaming in their homes. Like the common xbox console as updates are constantly being made a VR Console will become very common and more affordable. Camera technology is changing so much with cameras being much more capable of tracking your movements to create an immersive gameplay experience.
Keep an eye out for new VR products coming onto the market, there’s going to be some great additions to the gaming world pretty soon and thanks to the increased popularity of these kinds of games it would be expected that sales are going to increase significantly.
