๐Ÿ’ปBrowser Based / Mobile Gaming: Limitless Accessibility

The popularity of 3D rendered combat games (shooters, etc) created a continuous problem for consumers. Publishers release and sell more and more sophisticated games that require gamers to constantly upgrade their hardware to throw themselves into ever more sophisticated simulations.

In order to enjoy immersive gaming experience and progress in competitive games the player must ensure that his/hers gaming set can handle the higher polygon counts, resolutions, and frame rates. The impressive part is that hardware companies partner and fund the development of more and more sophisticated games.

Which brings us to the problem: accessibility. Enjoying a sophisticated gaming experience is very expensive. As discussed before, there is a big focus on the captivating realistic simulations rather than mechanics which is the main point of the enjoyable gaming experience.

Due to the costs and accessibility and rapid mobile technology development, mobile gaming has been booming in recent years. A survey of 48 international markets reveals that mobile gaming is slightly more popular: 46% of gamers play on mobile devices, compared to 40% on PC or consoles.

In 2024, the Mobile Games market is projected to generate a revenue of US$98.74bn worldwide. Looking ahead, the market is expected to exhibit a compound annual growth rate (CAGR 2024-2027) of 6.39%, resulting in a projected market volume of US$ 118.90 bn by 2027.

Besides that, the browser based games market is growing exponentially and is projected to peak in upcoming years. In 2023, the global browser gaming market generated approximately US$15.03 bn U.S. dollars worth of revenue. Despite the growing console and mobile gaming genres, in 2028, the segment is projected to increase to US$ 22.33 bn U.S. dollars in annual revenues.

The mobile and browser-based gaming revolution has democratized gaming, granting access to millions of potential players. Therefore, combining mobile and browser-based approaches would open to limitless opportunities in terms of accessibility and market reach.
