The rise of gaming on smartphones has proven that we like to play on the move. With the restriction in screen size though, many gamers have been feeling the need for bigger screens and more power. This is why the tablet is seeing a rise in dominance of mobile gaming.
The simple fact is tablets offer the size of screen that modern games need, and they also provide the power that is required. Another fact is that they also provide the same level of mobility that smartphones provide, which is obviously why they are gaining an edge in the world of mobile gaming.
Whether you are playing the latest graphically intense games, wanting to choose for comfort at bingo sites, or playing the latest Candy Crush Saga clone, tablets offer a better experience. They may not offer the pocket sized fun that the smartphones can provide, but they are still more mobile than the modern consoles, and more importantly they have their own screens, which is very important of course.
Another winner for tablets is the ability to stream PC games while not being stuck at your computer. This was made possible by the NVidia Shield, which may be a costly device but is designed not only to be portable, but also be focused on gaming. The versatility of being able to play PC games on a tablet which even has controls to allow this is an interesting move for tablets, and could become even more popular in the future.
The smartphone will never disappear from mobile gaming, it still has its many plusses. The fact is though that in a gaming world where apps are becoming more processor hungry and graphically intense, the tablet has the ability to reign supreme. The size of screen that tablets can provide is also important, especially on games that feature many things happening at the same time.
Whether you are a fan of the smartphones or tablets, both devices are pushing mobile social gaming to new heights. There is no sign that the popularity of this form of gaming is set to decline, so it looks like the gaming tablets are here to stay.
