The laptops and desktops manufactured in the year 2008 supported the console games as they had “broadened product lines” (Gamble, 2008, p. 223), which included multiple processors, wide screen displays, and advanced graphics. This supported online gaming, making console games widely used since anybody owning a laptop or desktop found it too easy to play the games.
The fact that there are broadband connections in many homes is an excellent opportunity for console games. This is because many people are encouraged to participate in online gaming taking advantage of the internet. Console games are available via mobiles, and this is an opportunity for the industry, as many people own mobile phones. The quickly advancing technology incorporated in the mobile phones makes it possible to integrate high decree color displays, enhanced audio capabilities, and high processing power (RocSearch, 2005).
