In the ever-expanding world of gaming, one unlikely platform has seen dramatic growth in the past couple years. Surprisingly, mobile gaming has quickly become a dominant gaming platform worldwide. With this growth has come the arrival of several peripherals designed to bridge the gap between mobile and console gaming. Everything from controllers to headsets have been developed to give mobile gaming the feel and comfort of a regular gaming console.
Gaming peripheral giant ‘Mad Catz’ have already jumped in the ring but are now looking to blow the competition away with their new GameSmart technology that’s said to change the face of mobile gaming as we know it. GameSmart will be used in the creation of a new line of gaming peripherals, from controllers and headsets to mice and keyboards. By utilizing Bluetooth Smart stack technology, Mad Catz is looking to provide a new level of comfort to the mobile gaming market.
Mad Catz President and CEO Darren Richardson has noted that they don’t expect controller-based game to replace touchscreen but to enhance and enlarge the overall gaming experience. Mad Catz has been developing video game peripherals through multiple generations of gaming consoles and continues to be one of the leading names in the video game industry.
With the lines between mobile and console gaming beginning to blur, it might not be long before we see the end of home consoles.
