Success for new release from Microsoft as Gaming industry continues to surge

Success for new release from Microsoft as Gaming industry continues to surge

Much of the talk at present in the gaming world has been about the popularity of the new release for Sony, with the new model of the PlayStation. It has led to the new release from Microsoft and the Xbox Series X has gone under the radar. However, it has been the most successful UK launch of the console in their history, that saw them sell around 155,000 in the opening two days of release. It meant it surpassed the opening sales for the Xbox One and gives a positive sign for the future of next-gen consoles. This was still well behind the sales of the PS4, that topped a quarter of a million in the opening two days of release.

Success for new release from Microsoft? As gaming industry continues surge in popularity

The new Xbox was expected to be a real game changer for the brand, with the console taking gaming to a new level. It has already gathered positive reviews for fans, so it is an exciting future ahead. Alongside the PS4, these are putting console gaming back on the map.

This also comes as the overall gaming industry is surging in popularity world-wide, with numbers that have never been seen before. This is not only for console gaming but across all areas of the industry, with mobile gaming being the key dominant player. That was shown in 2019 for example, with mobile gaming increasing to a 60% share of the overall market and this is only set to increase in the coming years, as it completely takes over and helps push the overall industry to new levels. It has all meant that the gaming market is now one of the fastest growing in the world, with success in all areas. Predictions have also been made that users playing mobile games will increase by a further 22.5% by 2024, which will mean over 1.7 billion people world-wide. That is simply remarkable and just shows the direction it is taking the industry. Similar has been seen with new casino sites, which are also seeing major growth and help pushing the gaming industry to the next level.

2020 has also been full of lockdowns enforced around the world, which has led to people having to spend extended periods within their own homes. This has led to a remarkable rise in online entertainment as expected, which has further accelerated this curve of growth. It has meant that mobile gaming has continued to produce record numbers, and this has also been seen for across console gaming. There is no doubt that it is a very positive future for the gaming industry, and it will be fascinating to see just where it can go within the next decade, as innovative technology continues to be introduced.
