Electronic games and gadgets that can run on a PC, iPhone, or Android device have become increasingly popular in recent years.
Now, they’re starting to be used to stream games to tablets, smartphones, or other devices that don’t support a touchscreen.
Some companies, including Amazon, have built online play services to help users enjoy their favorite games on devices with limited touchscreen capabilities.
But for most gamers, the main challenge is getting to the games, which can be challenging to play with a limited screen.
“You can’t just buy a game and say, ‘I want to play it on my tablet,’ ” said Chris Gomes, founder and CEO of GameLab, a gaming service that provides online play for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC.
“We can’t say, OK, I’m going to buy a device and install this software on it, and then I’ll play it at home.
That’s not going to work.”
Some gamers may want to get to the game faster, Gomes said.
But the more important challenge is finding a place to play.
GameLab’s Gomes says that for most people, a dedicated gaming session is more fun than spending an entire day playing online.
Gomes is hoping to solve this problem by giving players more ways to access their games.
Gives them the option to play on a dedicated device.
He said that if a user wants to play a game on their phone or tablet, they can choose to do so through a dedicated service that lets them connect to their own game server.
That way, players can easily play online with the same level of control and flexibility that they get from a dedicated server.
The idea is to give gamers more ways and places to play online, said Gomes.
He plans to create more services that let gamers play on PCs, smartphones and other devices and give them more control over the game they’re playing.
Games is betting that the growing popularity of online gaming services will eventually make online play a popular and widely used option for gamers.
“A lot of people are just starting to really appreciate what online play can do for gamers,” he said.
“If you’re playing games, it’s pretty easy to play them with a tablet or laptop or a phone.
You just have to know what the settings are and where to put your mouse, and it’s all really intuitive.”
He said the services will likely grow, and eventually make it easier for people to play the same games across multiple devices.
“I think online play will be one of the fastest growing markets,” Gomes predicted.
“But I think that there’s a lot of room for the next generation of online play.
I think we’re going to see a lot more online games coming online in the next five years.”
In the future, Goms believes gamers will be able to access a game without needing a dedicated system to play and get into a game.
“People are going to want to spend a lot less money on a console, and they’re going also to want access to all their favorite online games.
It’s going to be a very interesting space,” he added.
With all the new gaming services coming online, it may be more difficult for consumers to find a place for their favorite titles, especially when it comes to older games.
“The game business is in a bit of a bubble right now,” said Peter Bratt, senior vice president at the NPD Group, which tracks online game sales.
“With all the games coming out, there’s so much more room to expand.”
