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

On-the-Go Charge As mobile dependence grows, devices get a convenient boost outside the home Implications - The race to charge devices faster and more efficient is on. Charging is taking the limelight as devices become more ingrained in consumer life and with this, the demand is fuelling the growth of hybrid products that serve multiple functions, including making sure phones, tablets and even phablets are able to stay juiced no matter how long consumers are out and about. These devices are particularly appealing for those regular travellers for both leisure and business.

Geriatric Tech Digital integration lends an upgrade to the world of seniors Implications -With 60% of 50 to 64-year-olds on a social network, the aging consumer of today is encouraged to continue the digital progress with geriatric-tailored devices. This speaks not only to the span of digital integration into daily life, but the redefinition of what it means to age, as more seniors demand products that stimulate them mentally, but accommodate them physically.

Social Media Sporting The social networking race literally becomes a game for young Millenials Implications - Despite a resonating shift away from Facebook by younger generations, the social media content race is still palpable amid users that are flooding networks with information, which has lead to the networks literally becoming games to 'win.' Using content as currency, the games put an emphasis on maintaining relevancy with younger Millennial users who are more drawn in by visual content that doesn't require overt thought or skill to create.
