Personally, I’m not a gamer. I haven’t been since I was about 12 and Nintendo 64 was the hit of the moment. But I look at my guy friends today and they’re mostly crazy over Xbox (to play Halo), Wii (on the boxing ring), and well the unfortunately discontinued Guitar Hero. I must confess, I did enjoy that last one when one of my friends practically forced the little plastic guitar strap on my shoulder.
As far as computer games go, they’re very last season for what I can see around me. Right now, after iPod Touch was released to attract gamers (think of it as PSP but cooler) game apps have been soaring. The latest crazy game app? Surely you’ve already heard of it… “Angry Birds”.
What’s more interesting about this particular presentation in games is that they are much more flexible than console games to be subject to special changes. Just look at “Angry Birds” looking like leprechauns. Oh St Patty’s Day. Wonder what they’ll do? Drink Guiness as they get angrier? http://www.geeky-gadgets.com/angry-birds-seasons-goes-green-for-st-patricks-day-08-03-2011/
The flexibility and instant connection to consumers, no matter where they may be in the world holds a clear distinction from the rest. Never the less, Kinect and Xbox are always on a guy’s eye for a night in with his boys.
