2015 has been a banner year for mobile games. Revenue is at an all-time high and there’s a slew of games that’s made the platform more popular than ever. This year is the first time that the revenues of mobile games will surpass those of traditional consoles and it’s looking as though this trend will continue into 2016. And that’ll happen thanks to a huge boost expected to come from the overseas market.
NVIDIA is preparing a new mobile GPU which will take form in the GeForce GTX 990M, at least according to the latest rumors. NVIDIA already has the GeForce GTX 980M, which is quite powerful, but not as powerful as a desktop GeForce GTX 980. The new GeForce GTX 990M is said to be faster than the desktop GTX 980.
One of the greatest things about CES is finding those few products that just blow you away. In transit from one scheduled morning meeting to another we crossed paths with the TactSlider booth. This booth was one of the smallest booths that we took the time to stop at during the entire event. Crazy enough the product we stumbled upon will probably revolutionize the tablet gaming industry for years to come. Imagine having a tactile joystick no bigger than a quarter that could attach anywhere to the surface of your mobile device to take the place of the annoying dedicated button spots or terrible tracking d-pads. The TactSlider is a cheap option that will essentially make that d-pad into one of the most comfortable analog sticks I’ve ever used. With a ridiculous amount of gaming applications the TactSlider is a product that I’m sure will be at CES next year…in a MUCH bigger booth.
