Tablet Gaming On The Rise

Tablet Gaming On The Rise

The analyst firm Juniper Research believes that tablets and gaming are on the rise. Worldwide sales of tablet games are believed to reach $3.1 billion in 2014.

The research firm believes that because of the larger screens on the devices, along with the graphic capabilities of the devices, it is encouraging users to to buy more and more games, as well as in-game items.

Juniper Research seemed to cite hardcore gamers coming to the fold, saying that with the improved graphic capability of tablets, they would be more open to playing with the devices. In addition to that, having console-style buttons taking less screen real estate than on smartphones would also benefit the console gamer.

And lastly, the analyst firm suggested that by 2016, tablet gaming would account for around a third of all mobile games revenue.
