Sample Console Pro Trends - Each Console PRO Trend is on its own slide with implications, a quantified score, and examples linked to online console articles, videos and images. Examples:

Tactual Drive As digital integration expands, cars receive touchscreen features to stay connected Implications - As a reliance on technological efficiency continues, digital adaptability moves into more mature, adult experiences to satiate convenience at all ages. Seeking methods of social integration, consumers are turning to in-car apps and touchscreen enhancements to maintain connectivity through more tactile methods of on-the-go routine. Tactile car enhancements speak to a desire to maintain technological integration through more sensory, yet easily adaptable methods of auto engagement.

Modernized Organization Seeking to maintain aesthetics, consumers turn to minimalist storage units Implications - While traditional storage units offer homeowners practical methods of organization, the overbearing framework can make modern aesthetics hard to achieve. Seeking methods of at-home efficiency without sacrificing contemporary appeal, consumers are turning to minimalist storage units to allow for seamless interior integration. These subtle storage designs speak to a desire for practical, yet aesthetically enhanced organizational methods in day-to-day living, especially when living in highly condensed areas during these overpopulated times.

Gamer Exertion A desire for pragmatic play prompts consumers to turn to physical gaming options Implications - Digital play can often result in a static, and physically inactive lifestyle. Seeking a healthier source of day-to-day amusement, individuals are turning to physically enriching gaming options that encourage exercise and athletic improvement. This reflects a move towards sources of play that help consumers cultivate, rather than detach from, everyday experiences.

Gamer Portability A desire for authentic gaming prompts more engaging mobile add-ons Implications - While mobile gaming provides a more practical method for on-the-go play, smartphone apps often lack the excitement and physical interaction of consoles and gaming systems. Seeking to add a more authentic feel to portable play, consumers are turning to mobile add-ons that help add traditional gaming features to compact, cellular devices. Touchscreen stickers and console attachments combine conventional aspects of gaming with the desire for more convenient, and accessible methods of everyday entertainment.

Communal Gaming As the popularity of gaming expands, players turn to more communal methods of play Implications - As gamer culture continues to expand with the advancements of technology and online interaction, players are becoming more open and expressive of their gaming habits as a means to connect with a societal emphasis on play. Adding more physical interaction to traditionally private methods of online gaming, high-tech gaming TVs and entertainment systems allows consumers to immerse themselves in fantasy while simultaneously opening up the door for more connected play.

Sophisticated Arcade Gamer culture undergoes maturation to stay relevant with grown-up gamers Implications - Video games -- a market segment heavily made up of teenage boys -- are undergoing something of a maturation with products that appeal to the 30 or 40-something player that still takes pleasure in playing, but needs a balance between gaming and adult commitments like marriage, physical health or vehicle ownership. This new community for aging gamers removes the stigma associated with gaming after 20 and expands the market into new, unexplored areas that give new relevancy for a pastime predetermined as being juvenile or weird for men or women with their own children to partake in.
