Few people get as excited about a new gadget as the modern gamer. This is because gamers are always seeking kit that will make their games faster, louder and more immersive than ever in a bid to experience the ultimate gaming rush, whether it’s an ultra-violent first-person shooter, or just a quick online casino game.
A player’s gaming platform is the first bit of kit that gets attention, and every true gaming fan will have a dedicated PC build that’s capable of playing the most graphics-heavy title. But as ever it’s a race to keep up with the software developers. This is why the MSI Aegis X has created some serious headlines, as it’s a specialist compact desktop gaming PC that even features a Dragon OC button that acts as a kind of turbo-charge feature by boosting speed by 15%.
Such technology will definitely be well-suited for fans of frenetic action titles like Doom 4, but of course there are many mobile gamers who prefer their entertainment a little more compact and casual. And whilst much has been made of the Samsung Galaxy S7 being the ultimate gaming phone, there have been some interesting inventions that have sought to made our mobile gaming a little cooler too!
Retro gaming fans should check out the upcoming Hyperkin Smart Boy that could turn your smartphone into an old-school Gameboy thanks to its innovative design. And what better way to try it out than by playing some of the retro online casino games at Betway that can see you playing roulette, blackjack or poker via your Gameboy-encased smartphone!
But although we might enjoy retro design, nobody likes tinny retro audio. This is why there’s been an impressive selection of gaming-specific headsets released for 2016. One of the best out there has to be the Logitech G933 Artemis Spectrum headset that lets you pick between wireless and wired sound, and is capable of producing luxurious 7.1 surround sound despite the fact that you only have two ears!
And despite these impressive audio developments, it’s nothing compared to the Oculus Rift which could be 2016’s defining gadget. The virtual reality headset has been a hobbyist’s plaything for a few years now, but since its launch earlier this year it’s become emblematic of how simply staring at a screen for your online casino games is going to become pretty passé in the near future!
