    If you are looking at the online gaming global market key players, the list still remains more or less the same as you would have had it a decade back. You still have players like Microsoft, EA Sports and Tencent ruling the roost, and offering some great games for all to play. However, the nature of games itself has changed.

    While there was a focus on just traditional PC gaming before, the online gaming industry now spans everything from PC's, consoles - both handheld and normal TV ones, as well as mobile games.

    Think of the Xbox One for instance. It’s a hot favorite today. Supporting motion gaming, it helps you do a lot more than just playing games. There is a total integrated approach where the TV interacts with the viewer and is able to recognize the user. Microsoft will surely be looking to propel the sales of Xbox One, so you can expect some great deals on it too.

    In fact, it is not just Microsoft who are looking to do more with gaming, there are other online sites like Winner that are looking to bring in more people to online gaming. If you get a Winner bonus in 2018, for instance, you can win big.

    Who are the Top Global Market Key Players Today?

    The gaming market is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 6.94% in the next five years, according to different analysts. This is because they expect the market to remain largely stable and witness some significant growth in the next few years. All the three markets, the Americas, the APAC and the EMEA are expected to witness growth during this period.

    Some of the popular vendors, as we discussed above, remains EA Sports and Microsoft. Microsoft still has its monopoly over most things digital, whether it be the OS or the gaming market. Sure, it has lost out on a few things in the last decade - who uses Bing or Outlook any more? However, it still has a presence that you cannot ignore, especially if you consider how the company is now changing the tech world with its Surface Pro series.

    The other competitors are Sony and Tencent, as well as Activision. These key players have made most of the games that you have played in your childhood, whether it be FIFA or action games like Spiderman.

    Additionally, the different studies suggest that online gaming will rule the roost in the next few years and will be followed by console gaming. PC gaming is seeming to take a backseat for now, and we can understand why.

    With increasing PC use today, people look at using PC's for a good many things and not just for games. Even if they do intend to play games, as many gamers do, consoles are what their favorites are. They have better consoles and who wouldn't want to try out an Xbox controller over their PC keyboard? It is these minute things that make PC gaming, well, not so popular today. ...

    The gaming industry has seen better days is no secret. You’ll find tons of people online, much like me, crying out like toddlers about how much better were the good old days. The use of the online gaming apps is expanding every year.

    This year, the global gaming industry has witnessed an outpouring growth. In fact, major casino brands like Grosvenor are continuing to see major growth here, which just states how the UK gaming industry is growing year-on-year and is only getting bigger as more devices come onto market. The games industry is almost jewel in a British crown of creative industries.

    The Top 3 Gaming Industry Trends in the U.K.

    Let us look at three key trends for the UK gaming industry in 2018.

    1. Rigorous Advertising Control

    You will have to deal with stricter rules and regulations as a company if you are looking to go online.

    Due to disregard by the gaming organisations that included misleading content and harmful activity that did not know how to address gambling addictions, new rules have developed.

    Online gaming operators in the past have misused advertising via vulnerable viewers. Ads that prompt viewers to “Bet Now” or bring about the so-called “Risk-Free” promotions are those operators of promotional campaigns that target those viewers.

    The new rules state that gambling operators cannot have ads running during live sports events.

    2. Gamification will be on the rise

    Now mobile casinos are getting popular as companies are shifting their landscape into online communities to increase player engagement.

    Gamification methods like developing negative storylines, as well as other popular methods like leaderboards, and avatars, have helped draw in more engaged gamers than before.

    Now, this concept of online gaming travels a step further via virtual reality. Virtual reality increases a player engagement it provides with an immersive and exciting experience. And they don' even have to leave their own home.

    3. Being More Mobile Friendly -

    A good amount of revenue comes from online players for these online gaming sites. However, using this popularity to maximum advantage as a tool traditional establishments are reaching for new patrons.

    In fact, many of these online gaming sites even offer you a mobile gaming experience, and the trend is starting to catch on. With immersive mobile experiences, it won't be long before more users prefer it than trying their favourite casino games online.

    You have major players in the U.K coming out with their own mobile online gaming app that can help them connect to more players, even those outside the U.K.

    2018 is an exciting year where we would see a lot more of our favourite slots and blackjack games online and can play them just about anytime we want. No more looking to head to Las Vegas or that nearby casino which is still hundreds of miles away. You could experience it all, anytime and you don't even need to have your PC for it. Just a smart device and an internet connection works just as fine. ...

    2. Playstation Vita News

    Heres some good news for PSvita users:

    Last Monday, we saw the unexpected release of a new firmware for the PlayStation Vita. The biggest question that seemed to run through people's minds was, "did The Flow's exploit get patched?" Now, it appears that he's gone through and tested out his new unreleased hack for 3.67 on the latest firmware, and it has been confirmed that the upcoming exploit has not been patched out, and The Flow already managed to get Henkaku on it. This doesn't mean we'll be getting a 3.68 hack for certain, but it does mean that the door is open for future exploits on this firmware.

    Though this is good news, those that want homebrew on their Vita shouldn't update just yet. As always, if you have the coveted 3.60 FW, stay on it, and if you're above that, it's still unwise to update to 3.68 as of yet. While The Flow is hard at work providing players will an exploit for higher firmwares, and there's a possibility of a 3.68 FW hack being possible at some point, there's still no scheduled timeframe for the 3.67 exploit, and he's not announced anything other than his recent findings in regards to 3.68.

    2. Playstation Vita News

    Recently i hacked my unused PSvita and PStv and now they are both awesome, heres an app you will use in both:

    If you a PSVita fan, you know 'bubbles' is the best way to launch your 'homebrew', well good news, the ABM team is back with v5.00:
    This useful application allows you to make personalized bubbles with 'icon' and 'title' of your PSP content (HBS/PSX/ISO/CSO) quick and easy, using the 'LMAN' plugin, forgetting completely of the tedious and long manual method.

    Adrenaline Bubbles Manager (ABM) purpose is to create the bubbles and necessary links to boot chosen psp iso/cso/pbp files with adrenaline v6.x through Lman's plugin adrbblbooter, all done within the ps vita, but, ABM does not change cpu speed, any issue related with that should be mentioned to Lman or the_flow[


    1. Install Adrenaline v6.1 Make sure Adrenaline works correctly, to be able to boot Adrenaline opening it just once, it is highly recommended to add the following line below the kernel line in ur0:tai/config.txt.
    2. After taking care of step 1, then you can start using Adrenaline Bubbles Manager to create bubbles for your PSP/PSX content.

    Changelog 5.00

    • Added submenu for Extra Setting.
    • Added ability to inject images to ABM bubbles.

    2. PS4

    Im not updating my PS4 but for those of you interested, heres the release notes:

    As usual the only 'changelog' entry is: “This system software update improves system performance” and normally that means something has been patched, which @Mathieulh has confirmed the currently available webkit exploit is closed, but no big deal as it was not a kernel one anyway, but it does mean Sony keeping an eye open what is being released out there in the wild.
    Firmware 5.53 is now giving you more options to choose how much data you want them to collect from your console. This includes data about online services (which cannot be deactivated), and navigation data (how you use the console. That part can be turned off). In general, my personal recommendation would be to share as little data as possible, independently of your use case.

    If you choose to update (which we don’t recommend if you expect to hack your console one day), head over to the settings to reduce the amount of data you share.
    As you can see above, the new firmware allows you 'cut down' the amount of 'public data being shared out' which is most likely the main reason for this update as Facebook got into trouble recently with this, but if you looking for 'future hacks' don't upgrade yet!

    The Theme Park that was on my doorstep now has a documentary thanks to TPW:

    The American Adventure Theme Park opened in Ilkeston, Derbyshire in 1987 and throughout this documentary we look back through the history of what was one of the most popular theme parks in the UK. We share the story of how a theme park that was once home to millions of visitors struggled to survive and now sits empty.We look back through the development of the park in the early years thanks to home footage captured during peoples visits. I share my fond memories of the park and visit for one final time before the bulldozers come in. We share an insight into the future plans for the site, along with looking back on our favourite memories of The American Adventure Theme Park. This documentary wouldn't of been possible without the fantastic home video footage captured by the many visitors to the park over the years. A full list of YouTube channels with full length videos from The American Adventure can be found in the end credits of this documentary. This footage was used under the YouTube fair use policy for educational purposes. I'd highly recommend visiting these channels to watch the full individual videos.

    2. Nintendo Switch

    Yet another awesome release for the Nintendo Switch:

    It's a driver that lets you use your JoyCons/Pro Controller with your PC with a lot more functionality than the default Windows driver (Analog stick support, Gyro Controls, Combining JoyCons, etc...)

    The above text answers the common first big question: "What actually is this thing and why should I use it?", and below is the overview settings, features and comments from its developer @mfosse regarding this awesome new release which allows us to finally fully enjoy the proper usage of your Nintendo Switch JoyCon and PRO controllers on your Gaming Desktop PC or Laptop rigs.
    Settings and features (some settings are only in the config file!)

    • Pro Controllers are supported (because someone is going to ask)
    • Combine JoyCons
      • Combines a pair of JoyCons into a single vJoy device

    • Reverse Stick X/Y
      • Reverses the X/Y direction(s) for both sticks

    • Gyro Controls
      • Enables controlling the mouse with a JoyCon like a WiiMote

    • Prefer Left JoyCon
      • By default, the right JoyCon is used (if found), this forces the program to use the left JoyCon (if found)

    • Gyro Controls Sensitivity X/Y
      • Controls the sensitivity -> higher = more sensitive
      • The X sensitivity also controls the gyro sensitivity for Rz/sl0/sl1 in vJoy

    • Gyroscope Combo Code
      • A number that tells the program which button or set of buttons to use to toggle gyro controls
      • To figure out what number to put in the config, look at the Gyro Combo Code when you press your desired keycombo

    • Quick Toggle Gyro
      • Changes the behavior of the Gyro toggle from a standard switch, to a "always on unless keycombo is pressed" mode

    • Gyro Window
      • Opens up a visualizer for the JoyCon's gyroscope

    • Mario Theme
      • Plays the Mario theme on the first connected JoyCon at startup

    • Debug Mode
      • Prints debug info to the console

    • Write Debug to File
      • Writes the debug info to a file

    • Force Poll Update
      • Don't enable this, probably

    I'm already aware of this post, but some of the info is pretty out of date, and I figured I should make an official thread.

    I've made two reddit posts about this now, and occasionally browse this forum, but still haven't made a post on here about this yet.
    Like with the reddit post's I've made before I'll do my best to answer any questions or comments you have.

    I don't have a full tutorial on how to use the program at the moment, but I have a basic outline of what to do on the GitHub page, I'll update this if me or someone else makes a full tutorial. If you're willing to make a tutorial contact me and I'll put it on the GitHub page (as well as here)

    Other Links:

    As much as I wish my code was perfect, it probably isn't so if you find any bugs or want to request a feature, you can do that here.
