Online pkv games are an incredibly popular niche within the games industry. Many people enjoy playing online games because they provide a challenging way to pass time and interact with others while staying in touch with friends and family. There is no denying that online games can appeal to the very core of many people’s interests. Many people who have never played before finding that they immediately have more enjoyment from online games than they would from, say, a console or video game.
These types of services and functions are provided by nearly every major company these days. Some of the largest and most popular franchises include: Xbox, PlayStation, Wii, Pokemon, and so many more. In fact, there is literally no company that cannot launch a new game now or that has not created an online game to compete with the other services. Xbox launched year ago and millions of people still play it, as do millions of people with a PlayStation.
The next-generation consoles, including the Wii and Xbox 360, are both sold out everywhere. This means that many players bought their consoles before they were ever released and now must wait for their release dates. The release of such games as Guitar Hero and Dance Revolution created a completely new genre of games in which many players could participate. While the Wii and Xbox initially functioned as controllers, they quickly became much more than that and many players found them so enjoyable that they began playing them for their health as well as their entertainment.
As the Wii and Xbox were released, more companies attempted to enter the online gaming market. In fact, many of the first successful game consoles were released by companies trying to tap into an emerging market that was becoming increasingly competitive. The result was a rush of new games that were released simultaneously for both the PS3 and Xbox. While the Wii and Xbox were ahead of their competitors in terms of sales, the Wii’s ability to adopt motion-sensitive controllers made it superior to competing console systems.
With Wii Fit and Wii Sports, the Wii launched year after year and was met with critical acclaim. The Wii’s controllers were revolutionary and the games were so well designed and intuitive that many people had trouble determining which game they wanted to play. The Wii Fit allows Wii players to perform an array of workouts, toning every muscle in their body. The Wii Sports game requires players to use their motion-sensitive controller to throw a football through a hoop. The iReader feature on the Wii Remote helps players scan pages using their fingers, rather than using the stylus. These features and more helped make the Wii the year’s biggest success and the top-selling console for the Christmas season.
The success of the Wii also led to the creation of multiple games for other platforms, such as the Kinect for Xbox and PlayStation Move for Nintendo DS. While the Wii had a smaller installed base than its competitors, it still managed to launch more units, sell more games, and create more opportunities for developers to create more games for sale. While this year’s release of the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 will no doubt further boost Wii sales, it is important to remember that the Wii simply launched better than its competitors this holiday season. In fact, it was recently estimated that the Wii sold more games in December alone than all of the other major consoles sold during that month.
