4- Transforming the Living Room: How Game Engines are Revolutionising At-Home Media Consumption
The broadening of the application of game engine technology to other industries in recent years cannot be understated, and increasingly, technology is offering some pretty significant disruption in our living rooms.
Earlier this year, we published our New Play Space report entitled ‘The Future of the Living Room’ which forecasted new play patterns, and many of those are now starting to come to fruition. Netflix is trialling cloud-based game services, Meta is releasing its instant gaming platform for Messenger, Sky provides new game-services direct from the TV via Sky-Glass and includes live interaction with its Sky Live camera device, and Samsung has launched its gaming hub for its latest smart TVs.
Across the board, gaming via streaming services and direct from TV are offsetting larger value creation costs than traditional media.
Without a doubt, the evolution of how we interact, play, and collaborate in the home is being fundamentally changed by game engines, and will continue to do so throughout the new year.
